A few years ago, talking about Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems was considered a luxury or something we could only enjoy in hotels. That feeling of satisfaction when you get to your room and feel it fresh is one of the best parts of the day. Nowadays, having air conditioning is a common requirement for most building and structures.

An HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system is an air-conditioning and ventilation system. As an air conditioning system, it essentially acts as heating in winter and as cooling in summer. Its main purpose is to provide the user with a comfortable indoor environment with comfortable temperature, relative humidity and air purification.

However, the purpose of an HVAC system is deeper than just warming or cooling an area. Instead, it serves to enhance indoor air quality and produce comfort for everyone inside a building. While there are many different types of HVAC systems, they all work with the same principles.

How does a HVAC system works?

It all starts with a source of fresh air intake from the outside or from within the place. This process is called ventilation, and it occurs in two different ways:

Natural ventilation

Natural ventilation is present in most houses and refers to the way air moves in and out through windows, gates, apertures, and other openings. This exchange of air is required to replenish oxygen and to remove smells, carbon dioxide, and unnecessary moisture.

Mechanical ventilation

Mechanical ventilation uses a mechanical method to pass air in and out. In the past, there was an abundance of natural ventilation in most homes from gaps and cracks in the structure along with opening and closing of doors. However, modern architecture is creating places that are far more tightly sealed so ventilation is becoming a more important component in HVAC systems.

Once the air is drawn in, it is drawn into an air handling unit where the operation starts. Here, the air is drawn into filters to eliminate dirt, dust, allergens, and other particles. Later, the air is either transmitted to be heated or transferred to be cooled so excess humidity can be eliminated.

When the air is clear, fresh, and at a convenient temperature, it is guided into the house. For central systems, this means passing through an arrangement of pipes and registers to various rooms. For other systems, this normally means being guided right into the space.

An HVAC system offers:

An HVAC device offers, depending on the design, the following services:

  • Heating: The process of adding heat to the air in order to increase its temperature.
  • Cooling: It consists of subtracting heat from the air in order to lower its temperature to comfort levels.
  • Ventilation: Consists of renewing the air in an enclosed room, providing air from outside, in order to ensure its quality, maintaining the concentration of pollutant gases at levels that can be considered healthy or not harmful.
  • Humidification/Dehumidification: Consists of increasing or reducing the humidity of the air maintaining it in its comfort interval. In general it can be said that in the case of generating very cold air it may be necessary to humidify it to reduce the sensation of dryness in the respiratory tract.

Conversely, in some cases where there is a lot of human presence or where there is a lot of humidity, it may be necessary to reduce it. This is done by cooling the air, condensing part of its humidity and then heating it to the comfort temperature.

  • Cleanliness: It consists of filtering the air to eliminate the dust, the fumes, the pollen, etc. in general, to eliminate all type of solid particles in suspension in the air. For this process different types of filters are used depending on the needs.
  • Movement of air to the interior: It consists of distributing the air of refreshment coming from the exterior inside the premises in such a way that no annoying air currents are created for its occupants. The diffusion and circulation of air in occupied rooms must be taken care of because excessive velocities are perceived as annoying by the occupants. Indoor air renewal must be effective, but “unnoticed”.

Maintenance

All current air conditioning systems, even modest window units, are provided with internal air filters. These are commonly made of light gauze material and should be serviced or washed as conditions warrant. For example, a construction in a dusty atmosphere, or a home with hairy pets, will require filters to be changed more regularly than buildings without these dirt loads.

Failure to replace these filters as demanded will contribute to a lower flow of heat transfer, resulting in wasted energy, shorter machine life, and increased energy bills. Low airflow may produce iced evaporator coils, which can ultimately stop the airflow. In addition, massively soiled or clogged filters can cause overheating through a heating cycle and can result in system collapse or even fire.

Types of maintenance

American Loss Consultant is here for you, we will gladly provide you any type of maintenance you need:

Preventive maintenance

Preventive maintenance is designed to ensure that each piece of equipment that integrates an HVAC system is optimized to obtain the performance of the intervened equipment and the timely detection of any failure that jeopardizes the performance and operation of the system.

Not performing preventive maintenance can result in damage to high-cost components such as coils, compressors and motors. An annual preventative maintenance program is recommended for your system so any failure would be detected early, resulting in lower cost and better response time.

Corrective maintenance

The corrective maintenance comes as a consequence of the lack of follow-up in the regular maintenance of the equipment, which causes urgent maintenance changes that lead to higher costs to change the components.

An annual preventive maintenance program is recommended for your system in the fall or winter months because this means lower cost and better response time. We have a team trained and highly committed to quality in service we can offer the proper assembly and installation.

To keep your HVAC system working as required, regular maintenance is needed. Since HVAC installations require professional periodic maintenance, you should not let amateurs take care of your HVAC system.
