What Are Variable Air Volume Units?
Variable air volume units are an addition to your existing air conditioning system that allows varied temperatures to be delivered to respective rooms. A thermostat is set with varying temperatures in different rooms within a building. The variable air volume units use dampers to prevent cooled air from entering the space in excess of the desired temperature. In some cases this is achieved through a reheating system in which rooms are allowed to receive unlimited cooled air, and then reheated with warm air to the desired temperature.
Certain buildings, such as medical offices, require variable air volume units if different areas of the building need to be cooled to different temperatures. Medical offices may need the rooms storing certain supplies and items to be cooled at one temperature, while the areas where staff and visitors frequent occupy need to be at another temperature. Variable air volume units help you achieve this through its unique system of cool air delivery.
What Are Signs It's Time for Repair or Replacement?
