The heating, ventilation and air conditioning, HVAC, system is one of the most important things to have in any living place. Mostly, the HVAC will be used for the purpose of increasing the indoor comfort. Increasing the air quality in the indoor places and the thermal comfort is a more specific use of the HVAC system.
There are instances when the HVAC systems will malfunction or be subject to failure. HVAC failure will be commonly be as a result of the aspects such as the blown fuses, the capacitors which are burnt out, the clogging of the draining pipes and other hitches which are related to the thermostat. 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 HVAC contractor or simply a technician is a person who has been licensed and trained with the procedures necessary to install and repair the HVAC systems.
As it has been earlier mentioned, the installation, repair and the maintenance of the HVAC system is the work in which the HVAC contractor may be tasked with. Installing the indoor and the outdoor units and the HVAC units of the HVAC system is what in most of the cases is included in the process of installing. The set procedures which have been put forward by the architects is what the HVAC contractor follows during the process of installing the HVAC system. In the first place, depending on the guidelines, the HVAC contractor will determine the type of system which is appropriate. In installation of the HVAC units will then be followed by the testing of the system piping and other connections to the system. The HVAC contractor then ensures that the system is also connected to the ductwork.
Regular maintenance of the HVAC system has to be done. Through the process of maintenance, the HVAC contractor is able to ensure the efficiency of the ventilation and cooling by the HVAC system. The maintenance by the HVAC contractor will in most of the cases involve the testing the blower fans and cleaning them. The same may also involve the checking of the coolant levels on the cooling systems. Other tasks may include the testing of the thermostat and 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.
