Addressing the Challenges faced in Design / Execution & Commissioning / Maintenance of HVAC systems
The objective of HVAC are to control the temperature of air inside the designated “Air
Conditioned” space along with control of moisture, filtration of air and containment of air
borne particles, supply of outside fresh air for control of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels
in the air conditioned space, and finally control of the movement of air or draught. All
these factors comprise of a successful HVAC system.
HVAC has its history in 1851 when Dr. John Gorrie was granted a US patent for a
refrigerating machine. Though refrigeration in that period was concerned with the
preservation of frozen meat for transport and making of ice, gradually the concept of cooling
for comfort arose. In 1902, the New York Stock Exchange was one of the first air- conditioned
Air conditioning ranges from simple air conditioning by use of window AC and split AC where
cooling, and minor filtration and dehumidifying, is done to complicated air conditioning
systems used in process plants, ships, museums, and centrally air- conditioned buildings.
