HVAC Glossary

HVAC Glossary Activated carbon — granular processed carbon, commonly used in air filter media to clean the air. Air conditioner — equipment used to control indoor air temperature, relative humidity, purity, and movement. Air conditioning — making indoor air more comfortable by transferring heat and humidity to the outside air. Air-cooled — using a fan to move heat away from the condenser coil to the outside air. Air filter— in heating and air conditioning, the media, element, or device used to remove unwanted particles, vapors, or odors from [...]

When to Change Filters of Air Handling Unit

When to Change Filters of Air Handling Unit An air handling unit, is a system used to circulate and condition the air in your heating, ventilating and air conditioning unit. Check and replace air-handling unit (AHU) filters regularly to ensure proper function and maximize system operation. Keeping filters and coils clean can dramatically improve the efficiency of the entire HVAC system. Damage of polluted filtersPollutedfilters can increase the energy demand on fans. Pollutedfilters can reduce the volume of supply air, resulting improper [...]

What is HVAC

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) is the technology of indoor environmental comfort. Its goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. Refrigeration is sometimes added to the field’s abbreviation as HVAC&R or HVACR.   HVAC is an important part of residential structures such as single family homes, apartment buildings, hotels and senior living facilities, medium to large industrial and office buildings such as pharmaceutical factories and hospitals, meeting hall and c, and in marine environments, where safe and healthy building conditions are regulated with respect to temperature and humidity, using fresh air from outdoors.Ventilating [...]
