How to determine the size or capacity of an HVAC system

  • Many factors affect the capacity of a new system, which include the outdoor climate, humidity levels, the number of windows and doors, total area and height, the direction of the sun, the number of heat-producing appliances and people in the area, the type or quality of the insulation.
  • A Parker Davis distributor or a qualified HVAC engineer can perform the proper calculations to determine the appropriate heating or cooling capacity and equipment style best suited for every application.

Installing a new system

  • Depending on the type of the system selected, you may or may not need to utilize a ductwork, refrigerant lines, and decide on types of wiring or controller systems. Our widest product line offers, ductless, ducted systems in split and packaged versions, with various cooling and heating options. Depending on the need, hundreds of different types of residential, commercial and industrial systems are available.
  • If a duct type system is preferred, the corresponding ductwork needs to be designed and manufactured to assure a good distribution of the conditioned air through the space.
  • Whereas, the ductless split systems eliminate the need for the ductwork and provide ultimate in zone control and installation simplicity.

What is a heat pump

  • A heat pump is an HVAC machine, designed to either heat or cool a space, by transferring heat between indoors and outdoors.
  • A heat pump works just like an air conditioner to transfer heat from inside to out, and when the flow of refrigerant is reversed by utilizing an automatic switching system, it works to transfer the exterior heat to the interior. No matter how cold the outdoors may be, a heat pump will always find the heat in the outdoor air and transfer it indoors.

Installing and servicing a HVAC system

HVAC systems are complicated machines that should ONLY be installed and serviced by a certified professional. However, in case an HVAC system malfunctions, a few basic steps listed below may correct a simple problem, prior to calling a service professional.

  • Disconnect and reconnect power to the indoor and outdoor units.
  • Make sure your circuit breakers are in the ON position.
  • Always keep your filters are clean.
  • Verify the supply and return vents to make sure they are unobstructed.
  • Check the settings on your thermostat or the controller.
  • Make sure the system has been switched on for appropriate COOL or HEAT setting.
