The commissioning process is an essential part of designing, constructing, operating and maintaining commercial HVAC systems. Dittmer Air and Heat, your leading HVAC and indoor air quality testing contractor, shares everything you need to know about it here.
What Is HVAC Commissioning?
According to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), commissioning is a “capable way of verifying that a facility and its systems meet the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR).” It seeks to ensure that the HVAC systems inside a commercial building or industrial facility are operating correctly, in the way the property owner intended.
What Are the Steps Involved in the Process?
The process of commissioning HVAC systems in commercial properties starts with a visual inspection of every piece of equipment, including both the interior and exterior components, to make sure each is installed properly in the right location according to design specifications. Next, the HVAC systems must be turned on and off, ensuring there are no issues during the operational sequence. If they’re working properly, they’re then tested, adjusted and balanced. That last part can take a long time to complete, but for HVAC air conditioner repair contractors, it’s a crucial component of the commissioning process that helps ensure efficient operation.
How Important Is Commercial HVAC Commissioning?
Commissioning commercial HVAC systems helps ensure energy efficiency and comfort throughout the building or facility. It will also benefit property owners who want to make sure that every HVAC unit is operating efficiently. On the part of the contractors, they’ll have all the information about the level of performance of each piece of equipment, allowing them to more easily fix any issues that may arise in the future.
