Q. Who is an hvac contractor?
An HVAC technician is a professional that labors in the field of heating, ventilation, air conditioning service and support. He or she can both install and repair systems, as well as maintaining them. He or she may work as an independent contractor or be employed by a company that specializes in climate control solutions for businesses and residential properties.

HVAC technicians typically do the following:

Q. Why higher an hvac contractor?
First of all, it is important to note that heaters and air conditioners, like all others types of electronic equipment, need to be maintained. Not maintaining the air conditioning and/or heating can result in inefficient energy usage, which will increase one’s electricity bill.
Furthermore, an HVAC company can make sure that no mistakes are made when fixing an air conditioner or heater. Many homeowners who do not have experience in this field can easily break something and this can in some cases result in having to replace the entire heating or air conditioner unit. Having a company come out and handle complicated repair work can save a homeowner the hassle of having to shell out money to buy an entirely new air conditioner and/or heater.
Business owners will naturally want to get heating and/or cooling problems taken care of as soon as possible. Customers will not want to come to a shop that is too cold in the winter or boiling hot in the summer. Summer cooling problems can also result in certain products going bad and needing to be tossed out, which is naturally a significant loss for the business. Hiring a company that handles commercial HVAC repair can help a business owner get the problems taken care of in a timely manner so that it does not affect business. Furthermore, as was noted above, a business owner will also want to contract such a company to come on a regular basis to do air conditioning and heating unit maintenance.

Q. What are different types of air conditioners?
1. Window Air Conditioner: This type of unit is designed to cool a single room. In this air conditioner all the components, namely the compressor, condenser, expansion valve or coil, evaporator and cooling coil are enclosed in a single box. This unit sits in the window. Because of this, it is not the most aesthetically pleasing option available. But if you are looking to cool a single room, it is the most cost-effective option around.

2. Split Air Conditioner: This unit is comprised of two parts: the outdoor, which houses the compressor, condenser and expansion valve; and the indoor, which is comprised of the evaporator coil and cooling fan. The split air conditioner can be used to cool one or two rooms.

3. Packaged Air Conditioner: This type of unit is perfect for cooling multiple rooms or a large space in your home or office. There are two possible arrangements with the package unit. In the first one, all the components, namely the compressor, condenser (which can be air cooled or water cooled), expansion valve and evaporator are housed in a single box. The cooled air is thrown by the high capacity blower, and it flows through the ducts laid through various rooms. In the second arrangement, the compressor and condenser are housed in one casing. The compressed gas passes through individual units, comprised of the expansion valve and cooling coil, located in various rooms.

4. Central Air Conditioning System: This unit is used primarily to cool big buildings, houses, offices, entire hotels, factories, etc. The central air conditioning system is comprised of a huge compressor that has the capacity to produce hundreds of tons of air conditioning. If you have a big area to cool, central air conditioning may be the only way to go.

5. Portable Air Conditioner This system is another flavor of the unitary air conditioning system. The portable air conditioner consists of a mobile self contained air conditioning unit that is placed on the floor inside a room and discharges exhaust heat using a hose vent through an exterior wall. Portable air conditioning units are a bit noisier than other types of units and can typically cool rooms under 500 SF. These units are a solution to those stubborn hot rooms that may exist even with central air conditioning. Like the window air conditioner, the portable unitary system has all the refrigeration components on one compact box. It also ejects heat out one end and blow cooled air out the other end.

Q. Can one install an air conditioner by themselves?
A. It is required by the air conditioner manufacturers that you use an HVAC technician to install your air conditioning unit. If one fails to do so, the warranty of the product may be voided and it may create problems in the future run.
