Modern technology has allowed us the comfort of keeping us away from the elements, and allowing us heat and air conditioning. With modernization heating and air conditioning keeps us comfortable in winter and summer months. Most families have taken to using the HVAC system, which is a centralized heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.
What is HVAC?
HVAC systems work by using four insulated pipes, two supply lines and two return lines. One set of these lines is used for chilled water, which is stored between 60 degrees F and 40 degrees F. The other set of pipes is used for hot water storage, and the temperature of that water is approximately 150 degrees F to 200 degrees F. All the pipes run to air handlers, which used the chilled water to provide air conditioning to a building, and the hot water to provide heating.
How Does HVAC Work?
HVAC air handlers can be custom designed to meet heating and cooling demands. Air handlers are also very versatile, as they can be stored in mechanical rooms, on roofs or in space above ceilings. The cold water is brought through the chiller, which is usually on the ground floor of a building, and the boiler, which makes hot water, can be kept inside or outside.
Why Should I Use HVAC?
HVAC makes heating and cooling your home or busy quite easy. With chilled and hot water always available, it is quite easy to flip a switch to get air conditioning or heat. You can even switch from heat to air conditioning, or vice versa, with a simple switch. Another benefit of HVAC systems is that they can be custom made to fit your budget and energy needs. This means that no matter your budget, you can be comfortable in winter or summer months.
