If you are building a new home or commercial establishment, it is important to integrate elements of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system into the design plan. Placement of ducts, electrical lines and connections, gas connections and piping, equipment rooms, and controls should be included. Roland Black Heating & Cooling of Gastonia, North Carolina, works with builders and architects to make sure HVAC systems are properly situated for optimum performance and ease of use.
An HVAC system is a major investment that should last for years. A system must be properly sized to adequately control both temperature and humidity. We use the Air Conditioning Contractors of America’s guidelines to calculate the load. Load calculations take into account many factors, including:
- Size and orientation of building.
- Local climate.
- How each room will be used.
- Number of people using a room.
- Landscaping, such as shade trees and other vegetation.
- Number of doors and windows.
- Amount of insulation in roof, walls, and subfloor.
These factors affect the system’s ability to heat and cool. A properly sized and situated unit will be more energy efficient, which can save hundreds of dollars a year in heating and cooling costs.
