In the market, there are multiple products which perform HVAC functions. Some of them have heating functions. While some of them have ventilation and air conditioning functions. If we observe the details of mechanical engineering, we find that we need to exercise care while selecting these products. Proper product selection will result in having the products that suit our needs and work to the best of their potential in our building’s environment. Therefore, I am presenting the details about a few HVAC products that you can use in construction to obtain the best results.
1- Room thermostats
The best temperature control product, which is widely prevalent among all sectors is the thermostat. Thermostat or more commonly, a room thermostat is a device which controls the room temperature. The device works in coordination with the heating system of the building. The device senses the temperature of air and compares it with the system.
Now, if the temperature of the air will be colder than your requirement, it will ask the heat control system to increase the heating. As the heat increases, the room temperature will start increasing. So, when the temperature of the air is equal to your requirement, the thermostat will again ask the system to stop the heating. In this procedure, the room temperature will remain constant.
Similarly, in case the temperature of the air is higher than your requirement, the thermostat will coordinate with the central heating system to lower the room temperature. We should note that the thermostat system is the easiest method to control room temperature. It protects your family from weather changes. Further, the system allows you to reduce energy bills and frequency of an energy crisis.
Room thermostats come in many forms. You can get one having a simple mechanical engineering system. Further, you can get one with a completely digital system. Both will work correctly as per your requirement. You can change the working procedures of the thermostat. You can use the thermostat for primary temperature control and also for high tech KNX communications (a communication protocol widely used in home and building automation).
2- Room Sensors
Room sensors are advancements to the thermostat and other similar room-temperature devices. These room sensors are the latest way of controlling and monitoring your building by using smart devices. You can connect the room sensors with your iPad, iPhone or any compatible android device.
Although these room sensors are relatively newer in the market than thermostats, their popularity is across the roof. They are selling in high numbers. The experts are always looking to bring a new feature to their room sensors. So now, along with controlling your room’s temperature, the sensors can detect motion in the room as well. You can change the temperature of your building remotely. In this way, you can ask the sensor to cool down the building temperature as you reach home from the office during the hot Summer days.
