Hvac services involve the heating, ventilation and air conditioning of buildings. They are vital for residential structures like single-family homes and apartment buildings, and commercial structures such as warehouses, offices and skyscrapers. In addition, they are important to many industrial applications and public facilities such as hospitals and schools.
HVAC systems are complex, involving several different types of equipment and parts. Their installation, repair and maintenance require training and experience. When selecting a HVAC company, consider their reputation, licensing, accreditation, insurance coverage, certifications and guarantees. In addition, ask about their rates and billing structure – are they hourly or by project?
AIR CONDITIONING SERVICES
Residential heating and cooling services typically involve a furnace, air handler, ductwork, thermostat and sometimes other units such as humidifiers or air purifiers. A furnace produces heat by burning fossil fuels such as natural gas or propane; an air handler circulates this warm or cool air through ductwork throughout the home.
The installation of new HVAC equipment can include tasks such as surveying/inspecting the existing system, determining what size of equipment is required for the building, designing the system layout and connecting ductwork; installing the new equipment, which may involve wiring, tubing, pipes or electrical supply lines; and testing and commissioning the system. HVAC system installations are usually performed by general contractors or mechanical contractors, but specialized mechanical engineers can also analyze, design and specify the equipment. Building permits and code-compliance inspections are normally required for all HVAC system installations. Hvac services
