HVAC installation and replacement
HVAC is the short form for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. This kind of system is used to provide cooling and heating services to buildings. HVAC systems have become highly required when constructing new buildings. Before the creation of this revolutionary system, the three elements were usually split between many devices.
In general, HVAC refers to the renewal of the air and its treatment to give it sanitary conditions. The purpose of an HVAC system is to provide an adequate air flow, heating and cooling to each area; maintaining the required values of temperature, air humidity, and air quality, independently of fluctuations in the environment.
How does a HVAC work?
The system contains a gas that, when compressed, increases its temperature due to pressure. Once hot, it runs through a conduit where it dissipates its heat. Afterward, it gradually cools until it becomes a low-temperature liquid. This liquid moves through an expansion valve and evaporates to become a cold low-pressure gas. Then, it runs through a duct absorbing the interior or exterior heat of the environment. Afterward, it is expelled through vents. This process works uninterrupted while the system is running. Some systems have thermostats that stop the process or leave it on hold.
One issue that should not be overlooked is that HVAC systems must ensure the safety and well-being of users, and provide optimal thermal comfort. Therefore, the relevant maintenance and sanitation actions must be carried out to guarantee that the indoor air of the air-conditioned enclosures is a quality air that does not endanger the health of people. For maintenance and sanitation, contact American Loss Consultant, an expert company able to handle your HVAC needs.
The HVAC system includes the following actions:
It is the process of adding heat to the air in order to increase its temperature. More and more systems are chosen more efficiently, more energy-saving, so it is worth mentioning the recovery of the heat from the exhaust air to heat the impulsion air (inlet) as the most efficient since the only energy consumption is that of the two fans, exhaust and drive motors. Then there are the heat pumps that provide heating energy three or four times higher than what they consume.
It consists on the contrary, it subtracts heat from the air in order to lower its temperature to levels of comfort. The best-known ways to cool the air are by using a compressor that compresses a gas until it passes to liquid (this happens in the condenser) and then expands it (in the evaporator) stealing the heat from the air that flows through it. A more energy efficient system is the evaporative system that consists of fogging water droplets in the air flow so that when evaporated these drops significantly cool the air.
It consists of renewing the air in a closed room, providing air from outside in order to ensure its quality, maintaining the concentration of polluting gases at levels that can be considered healthy or not harmful. It is the extraction function that has always been done, although at the present time it tends to double flow systems due to the great tightness of the current constructions.
Humidification / dehumidification
It consists of increasing or reducing the humidity of the air keeping it in its comfort range. In general, it can be said that in the case of heating very cold air it may be necessary to moisten it to reduce the sensation of dryness in the respiratory tract. Contrarily, in some cases of a high human presence or where there is a lot of humidity, it may be necessary to reduce it.
It consists of filtering the air to eliminate dust, fumes, pollen, etc. In general, eliminate all types of solid particles suspended in the air. There is growing concern about the quality of the air we breathe, which is why the use of filters to retain particles in suspension is growing.
Indoor air movement
It consists of distributing the air of refreshment coming from the outside inside the premises so that no annoying air currents are created for its occupants. The diffusion and circulation of air in occupied premises must be taken care of very much because excessive speeds are perceived as annoying by the occupants.

Installation and replacement of an HVAC system
It is essential that the design of the system needs to be adapted to the use of the air-conditioned enclosure. The design of air conditioning for a house is not the same as the design of air conditioning for an office.
It must be ensured that the design of the installation has taken into account the adequate cooling capacity and correct air distribution. Trust American Loss Consultant to manage the installation process for you. To assure your HVAC is installed as intended, our team will:
- Your home needs equipment properly sized using sizing software. It will be the suggested efficiency for your climate. Beyond that, some HVAC accessories might benefit your indoor comfort and climate.
- Perform a general overhaul of the system. The personnel will also make sure that any damaged components are repaired or replaced.
- Make sure that your HVAC system does not have problems that could cause harm to your family or home.
- Perform any simple repair if needed. The technician will do it during your visit. In general, these are quick and unproblematic, while the more complicated ones usually require another visit.
- Answer your questions and give you tips you can follow until the next maintenance date, such as when to replace the air filters or how to ensure that everything works correctly.
Adequate maintenance, parts replacement, repair and cleaning must be provided to the system, taking into account the requirements of current regulations. It should be remembered that some damaged and dirty ducts are among the causes of various discomforts that occupants may suffer: allergies, cough, irritation of the throat and eyes, bad odors, etc.
Special emphasis should be placed on the condition and replacement of filters and other related parts, since they are responsible for purifying the air by filtering the polluting substances. Also, the condition of the condensation trays and the laying of ducts, remembering that the accumulation of water in their interior should be avoided (stagnant water is the breeding ground for the proliferation of bacteriological microorganisms).
