12/7/2022 - Heat Loss Gain for Sizing HVAC in Homes
The heat load is the amount of heat energy to be added to a building space to keep the indoor temperature within a specified range. This is the load that must be handled by the heating equipment. The heat loss calculation through a building is the single most important step in determining the size of the heating equipment. Proper sizing of heating equipment can mean savings in initial and operating cost and increased comfort to occupants.
12/7/2022 - HVAC Ductwork Sizing
In air conditioning systems the duct is considered a static component of the installation through which air flows within the building, connecting all parts of the system. Ducts can be best described as arteries of the central air-conditioning system. These play an important role in keeping the whole HVAC system fit and achieving comfortable conditions throughout its life span. Defects in a duct system can waste hundreds of dollars a year by forcing the HVAC system to run longer than necessary. Ductwork problems also make certain rooms are too hot or too cold at different times of the year, while introducing dirt and bad odors into the forced-air system.
