Steps to Properly Size and Select HVAC Systems.
The role of proper HVAC system sizing comes with various steps that installers like Mid-Tech Services like to follow.
We will begin by conducting a comprehensive load calculation to determine the heating and cooling requirements of the building. Factors such as insulation, building orientation, occupancy, and climate will be considered.
In larger buildings, implementing zoning strategies enables more precise temperature control in different areas. This approach requires the use of separate thermostats and dampers to direct airflow, enhancing energy efficiency and comfort.
Energy Efficiency Ratings.
Choose HVAC equipment with high energy efficiency ratings, such as SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) for air conditioners and heat pumps. Higher ratings indicate better energy performance. You can find out all the information to do with seasonal energy efficiency ratings here.
Proper Duct Design.
The efficiency of HVAC systems is heavily influenced by the ductwork. Ensure that the ducts are appropriately sized and designed to facilitate balanced airflow throughout the building.
Factor in Future Expansion.
Account for potential building expansion or changes in occupancy when sizing HVAC equipment. This proactive approach ensures that the system can accommodate future requirements without compromising performance.
