Avoid these pitfalls when installing HVAC sensors

Update: 2019-11-22 17:41 Source: LUFTMY Reading: ↻ News

Modern HVAC systems are becoming more and more intelligent, which means they need sensors to tell them when to keep the house cool and when to let the temperature rise slightly to save homeless power.These sensors are used for specific purposes, but can be tricky to install.This is a list of some of the most common HVAC sensors and some pitfalls to avoid when installing them.

Temperature sensor

The temperature sensor can work in many ways.They may adjust HVAC settings based on occupancy or external temperature and weather conditions.The biggest trap of these sensors is the same as that of traditional thermostats, i.e. poor position.Placing a temperature sensor in an area that is already hot or cold, such as a garage or kitchen, can make it difficult for the HVAC system to do its job and adjust the thermostat settings.

Humidity sensor

Humidity sensors are usually in line with temperature sensors, but can be installed separately as required. If a room is too wet, these sensors will trigger the HVAC system to remove water from the air.

Indoor sensors installed in naturally damp areas such as kitchens or bathrooms will provide inaccurate readings for the rest of the house. Install these sensors in areas where there are no heating devices, such as computers or space heaters.

Of course, outdoor sensors will encounter more environmental humidity, but they can not work well in high temperature. Do not install them near any hot air vents in the house, such as dryer vents. High temperatures can damage the sensor and require expensive replacement.

Air quality sensor

With the deterioration of air quality, air quality sensors have become more and more important than ever before, which is why more and more consumers and enterprises are mainly seeking to use them for families and enterprises.Ideally, these sensors should be located in each room of the house, but their location is critical.A major pitfall to avoid is installation related, and if sensors are connected to the HVAC system and controls can be changed according to the air quality program, they must be placed and calibrated accurately.

Most commercial grade air quality sensors detect two things: small particulate matter and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).If the air quality sensor is placed in the janitor's closet, which may contain VOC emission cleaning products, it will not accurately reflect the air quality of the whole building.

Inductive sensor

The inductive sensors determine the number of people in the space and adjust the HVAC settings accordingly.They can be tied to prior art, such as ticketing or safe swiping, or designed to read the amount of CO2 in a room to find out how many people live in the area at any given time.For example, if the CO2 level rises too high, the HVAC system can remove CO2 by activating ventilation and cycle in fresh air to respond.

Gateway technology and sensors

Each intelligent HVAC system requires a gateway to allow technicians to remotely control all aspects of the system. The trick of gateway systems is that they need to be synchronized with every sensor and device in the system to function properly.

Intelligent HVAC system is a relatively new technology, which means it is easy to ignore one or two sensors and reduce system efficiency. One way to avoid this is to generate a list of every piece of work you're going to do to make sure you don't ignore sensors that might offset all your hard work.

Intelligent HVAC systems rely on so many sensors to do their job to keep up with all the changes in technology can be a challenge. Avoiding these pitfalls can help you create a more efficient installation process and provide the best service for your residential and commercial accounts.
