Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are designed to provide safe, comfortable, and healthy air quality inside buildings for its inhabitants and assets (e.g., data center equipment) and are used in both domestic and commercial settings. HVAC systems include several components such as air conditioners, heat pumps, furnaces, boilers, rooftop units, chillers, exhaust fans, thermostats, elaborate ductwork to channel the air throughout the building and a network of outlet vents. Heating and air conditioning components provide heating or cooling, and humidity control for the building. Ventilation, which is the process of replacing air inside the building with fresh outside air, helps keep the air within freely circulating, and remove unpleasant odors, excessive moisture, dust, airborne bacteria,etc. in order to continually maintain high indoor air quality.
GE-Ctrls has partnered with reputed international manufacturers such as Blue Star, Daikin, and Carrier to bring you a wide range of HVAC solutions. We will work closely with you to help select the right HVAC system that is suitable to your specific needs. Four main types of HVAC systems are available that fall into two broad categories:
This is a ductless system that is ideal for very small spaces such as a single room. All components in this system are enclosed in a single casing that is fitted in a window sill or a custom slot made in the wall.
This is a ductless system that comprises of indoor and outdoor units which house different components of the system. Thus, when compared to window systems, a split system not only eliminates the need for making any slot in the wall but also takes up far less space inside the room and is much quieter while operating.
Similar to a widow system, all components are enclosed in a single casing. However, the unit is placed outdoors and chilled air is channeled through ducts to the inside of the building. Hence, packaged systems are ideal for situations in which indoor space is at a premium. While window and split systems are used for small air conditioning capacities of up to 5 tons, packaged systems are available in higher capacities of up to 15 tons but less than the capacities of a centralized system. Packaged systems are thus ideal for larger spaces such as restaurants, small offices and homes.
These are used for entire buildings such as office and residential complexes, hotels, hospitals, airports, indoor malls, etc. A large external plant room houses the system’s components such as the compressor, condenser, expansion valve, evaporator, etc. that perform the same functions as any other type of HVAC system but are much larger in size and capacity. The chilled air is then channeled via ductwork and a network of vents to whichever spaces of the building need to be air conditioned.
