There are many factors to consider when shopping for an HVAC system. Sometimes, the system ends up being either expensive or insufficient/oversize for your space, which can lead to higher utility bills and an uncomfortably cold or warm home. Getting the help of a mechanical HVAC design service Scottsdale AZ gives you a better idea of what type of system is suitable for your space.
Mechanical HVAC engineers work by measuring the dimensions of the space, including that of the roofs, walls and even corners. The type and number of windows, sun exposure, blinds, heat generated from electric and electronic appliance are also noted. Engineers also consider the number of people occupying the space. After calculating the heat generated inside a space, an engineer will suggest an HVAC system with proper tonnage for maximum performance and energy efficiency. The piping or ducting design comes next after selecting the best equipment for your space.
A greatly oversized equipment reduces its efficiency and also incurs more operating cost compared with properly sized HVAC systems. An oversized heating or cooling system may not humidify or dehumidify a space properly, which can result to a warm or cool clammy place that is uncomfortable to live in. Aside from the size of the equipment, skilled HVAC engineers also consider the part-load performance of a system, or the peak efficiency of an equipment when working near its maximum output. This consideration not only allows the machine to handle pick-up loads but also offer a factor of safety.
