When you turn on the air-conditioning in your house, you may not be aware of it but you are using products and systems that are categorized as belonging to the plumbing and HVAC industry. HVAC stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning and refers to the various components that come standard in most buildings today. There is a fine balance between the different components and how they work and one slight malfunction could lead to your house becoming a very uncomfortable place to stay. This is the reason why as a plumber, an HVAC expert or even a homeowner, it is important to pay careful attention to the systems that you put in your house.
Plumbing and HVAC Are Essential to Modern Homes
Most modern houses cannot be functional without a well-installed plumbing and HVAC system. Indeed in most areas in the United States, there are clear guidelines on how these systems should be installed in modern homes. Unfortunately, most home owners never really bother with these systems as long as they are working. They only begin to learn how they work, and the components involved, when they have to fix something in the system that has gone wrong.
Of course, it need not be said that the quality of the various components that make up the plumbing and HVAC systems in any modern home has a huge bearing on their efficiency, durability, and effectiveness.
Key factors in this industry are the toilet vacuum systems and the particle measurement systems. Toilet vacuum systems are closed systems that allow for the transportation of sewage to its disposal site using an internally generated vacuum. There are two types namely Vacuum on demand (or VOD) which creates a vacuum when the toilet is flushed or the constant vacuum system that uses an energy source to create a permanent vacuum.
In HVAC, particle measurement refers to the analysis of airborne particles to help determine the purity of the air in a given environment. Various technologies are used to measure the number of particles in the air and the technology behind it is critical for designing protective gear and other materials used in handling hazardous materials.
What Kind of Machinery Does the Plumbing and HVAC Industry Use?
Various pumps and high-speed blowers are used in this industry to help in the process of waste disposal as well as air purification. Specifically, they do the following:
- Ensure that in water and sewage systems, they create enough pressure to move wastewater and sewage away to disposal sites.
- In HVAC, various vacuums are used in particle measurement and in the development and testing of protective gear.
- Used in the analysis of workplace safety, especially in workplaces where there is a risk of air contamination.
Machinery in the Plumbing and HVAC Industry
The ability to measure particles in the air and generate a vacuum to move sewage through a plumbing system is critical. Without these, people would be exposed to harmful contaminants in the air and modern plumbing and sewage systems would be impossible to operate.
