In any living place, the most crucial thing that one may consider having is the heating, ventilation and the air conditioning system, HVAC. The HVAC systems will in most of the cases be used for the reasons such as those related to the comfort in the indoor places. Increasing the air quality in the indoor places and the thermal comfort is a more specific use of the HVAC system.
Sometimes, these systems are subject to malfunction and failure due to a number of reasons. The common causes of HVAC failure may be the blown fuses, the burnt-out capacitors, clogged drained lines, problems related to the thermostat and so on. The repair and the maintenance of the HVAC system will in this case be necessitated by the HVAC failure. This then necessitate one to engage the HVAC contractor. The term HVAC contractor may be used to refer to a person who has been well trained and licensed so as to practice the installation and the repair of the HVAC system or the technician.
The HVAC contractor will be in most of the cases be assigned with the work such as the installation, repair and maintenance of the HVAC systems. What is included in the installation process of the HVAC system is the installation of the HVAC units and both the indoor and outdoor units of the system. To install the HVAC system, the HVAC contractor usually follows the guidelines which have been put forward by the architects. The first thing that the HVAC contractor should have in mind is the type of HVAC system to install depending on the guidelines which have been provided. What then follows during the HVAC system installation is the testing of the piping for the system and other connections to the systems. The HVAC contractor then ensures that the system is also connected to the ductwork.
The maintenance of the HVAC system should be done regularly. The efficiency of the HVAC system such as the ventilation and the cooling efficiency is what is tested during the process of maintenance. What involves the maintenance of the HVAC systems in most of the cases is the testing and cleaning of the blower fans and so on. The HVAC system maintenance may also involve the checking of the levels of HVAC coolants. In addition, the HVAC maintenance may also include thermostat testing on how it is operating.
The HVAC contractor will also carry out the repair of the HVAC system. The problems which are related to the thermostat, the air compressors and other controls is what in this cases the HVAC contractor will do. Repairing of the HVAC system itself is also included in the repair.
