So many HVAC systems have had to be replaced because the load that they were using was off and it was costing them more than the system would have cost to repair them. I guess you could say that when it comes to an HVAC system, it is never really too late to get some better parts for it to do the job correctly, but this time it will save you money and get your system back up and running again quickly.
For those who need a primer on the basics of HVAC systems, you should first learn about pressure. The pressure is a very important thing to know if you plan on doing any calculations with an HVAC Load Calculation Spreadsheet.
The pressure used in HVAC calculations is measured in pounds per square inch (psi). This makes the pressure even more important since it is measured in pounds per square inch, instead of the tons per square inch, which is what most people are used to using.
It is also important to note that in addition to the density and number of service points that a system has, there is another factor that must be taken into consideration in calculating the pressure. This is the BTU rating, which is basically how much power you will be using, or the amount of heat that will be generated if a lot of power is produced by the unit.
The BTU rating can vary between different units, so it is best to use an online calculation spreadsheet and get the power you are going to need before you begin your calculations. Keep in mind that if you are not accurate, you can end up being shortchanged by the calculator.
However, if you already know what you are doing and are calculating based on the BTU ratings for your air conditioner, then you will be fine. Once you have the capacity, you should look at the system as a whole and see how many volts are needed to keep the system operating at its highest level, and then work from there.
Other factors can affect the amount of voltage you need to supply for an HVAC system, such as the current draw of the pump that will cool the air that is coming from the outside. To get this right, you need to make sure that you have a good look at the schematics of your HVAC unit before you begin the calculations.
Now that you have the basics, you should be able to get your HVAC unit working right, or at least going as efficiently as possible. Remember that you will always have to buy new parts for your system, but the more you can keep the original parts working properly, the less you will have to replace them.
