EPA What Is IT01/26/2014 Back To Blog
How much do you actually know about HVAC systems? How much do you know about indoor air circulation, about heating, ventilating, and air conditioning? What do you know about indoor air quality in general? What do you know about the state of indoor quality in your own home? What is the air duct cleaning? What is air duct maintenance? What is the appropriate way to seal a duck?
HVAC system governing bodies
If the above listed questions seem to you like list of possible final questions from the quiz “Who wants to be millionaire?” i.e. almost impossible to answer, do not worry about it. HVAC systems make part of somewhat complicated technology and industry and unless you are professional air duct contractor there is not one reason whatsoever why should you be under command and control of these notions. If on the other hand you do wish to learn more about the HVAC systems and air duct cleaning industry then the best start approach would be looking up all the relevant governing bodies, agencies and regulations.
When it comes to these HVAC system governing bodies it is very important to remember that each continent has its own regulative bodies. However there is one universal and international standard that applies to the whole word and that is ISO standard for environment and building. The other standards and rules applicable and valid in North America mostly come from Environmental Protection Agency and American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers. There are also some other minor bodies operating on national or even regional level responsible for issuing HVAC systems licenses and certificates. Both, EPA and ASHRAE have very well organized Internet sites that might be a great start for you toward better understanding of HVAC air duct industry.
