Heating installation Waltham, Newton

In recent years severe winter storms battering Northern America has become a common occurrence. These storms have caused plummeting temperatures and increased the need for HVAC heating systems.

The growth in the HVAC industry and increase in HVAC installations by companies like Heating Installation Waltham or Heating Installation Newton, is demonstrated by statistical evidence. In 2021 the global HVAC market was valued at USD 142.72 Billion and in 2021 the American market was valued at USD 16 billion with 87% of homes in America having an HVAC system installed.

Different types of HVAC heating systems
There are three different types of HVAC heating systems that can be installed by HVAC heating installation companies like Heating Installation Waltham or Heating Installation Newton.

The first type of HVAC heating is called the Hydronic heating system which heats a building by carrying heated water up to (93 degrees centigrade) or steam throughout an entire structure. After being heated, the water or steam enters a centrifugal pump which together with the spinning impellers distributes the water or steam throughout an entire structure.

The hot water is then radiated into a room by the use of single terminal units such as radiators or it is transmitted through a system of pipes and tubing underneath the walls and floors of a building. Transmitting water or steam through pipes and tubing beneath floors and walls heats the floors and walls of all rooms throughout a structure where they are installed.

Hydronic HVAC heating systems should be installed by experts like Heating Installation Waltham or Heating Installation Newton. Hydronic heating systems have several advantages including they are more efficient and cheaper to run plus they distribute heat more uniformly.

The most commonly used HVAC heating system in America is the forced air heating system. A forced-air heating system creates hot air using a furnace and this air is then blown/forced through a ventilation system using a fan and expelled into rooms through air ducts. 

Most forced-air heating systems will also include plenums which are vents that draw in warm air from the room and take it back to the furnace for reheating and distribution again.

All forced-air heating systems installed by Heating Installation Waltham or Heating Installation Newton include an air filter, a blower such as a fan, a heat exchanger which takes the form of a heating element or coil, and various heating controls such as a thermostat. 

The third type of HVAC heating system often installed in American homes by Heating Installation Waltham or Heating Installation is called the Mini-Split air conditioning system. This system is composed of single air conditioning units which blow air into a room. They are mostly used for cooling but can also be used for heating purposes.

The Hydronic heating system, forced-air centralized systems (including the accompanying ventilation system), and mini-split air conditioning units can all be efficiently installed by Heating Installation Waltham or Heating Installation Newton.

The power source (fuel)
HVAC heating systems can also be categorized based on what power supply they use. For example, there are electric HVAC heating systems, gas HVAC heating systems, and oil HVAC heating systems. 

All of these systems installed by Heating Installation Waltham or Heating Installation Newton have various advantages and disadvantages, for example, the electrical heating systems are usually smaller, have more longevity, and do not include a connected ventilation system which makes them cheaper to purchase and easier to install. However, the electrical systems are also more expensive to run compared to heating oil and gas-powered heating systems.

The most commonly installed HVAC heating system by the experts at Heating Installation Waltham or Heating Installation Newton is the Oil-based furnace heating system.

Installation
Installing an HVAC heating system will involve the following procedural steps.

Available installation space
The first step in most installations is measuring the available space in which the HVAC heating system will be contained. These measurements have to be precise so as to ensure there is enough room for the HVAC heating unit, prescribed space requirements, and room enough for connection of the ventilation system.

Installing ducts and drains
A factor critical to the successful installation of an HVAC heating system by Heating Installation Waltham or Heating Installation Newton is the installation of ventilation ducts and drains.

Ordinarily, an HVAC heating system is connected to a ventilation system which is composed of a series of pipes and ventilation ducts. The boiler or furnace produces the hot air which is then blown by a fan through a series of ventilation pipes/tunnels and out into the rooms through ventilation ducts.  

There is also a ventilation duct that takes some warm air from the rooms and returns it to the heating unit, to be reheated and redistributed as hot air again.

When it comes to the drainage system the main drain is what is called the condense drain, which drains condensation and excess water to an area outside of the house. The condense drain is normally installed on a slight downwards angle thereby facilitating easy drainage.

All drainage and ventilation systems must be firmly connected and tightly sealed by Heating Installation Waltham or Heating Installation Newton so as to avoid leakage of air or water.

Making sure the ventilation system is tightly connected is important because this ensures no hot air escapes and this means the heating system is operating efficiently.

Connecting the power supply
Gas and electrical HVAC heating systems will require a connection to the power supply. The gas installation has to ensure there is a ‘shut off’ switch that stops the flow of gas and the connection between the heating system and the gas inlet has to be completely leakproof.

Connecting the power supply.  
This concern applies to gas and electrical furnaces. A gas furnace installation conducted by Heating Installation Waltham or Heating Installation Newton has to ensure a shutoff switch is installed and the connection between the gas supply and the furnace is completely leak-proof.
