Before we get into the specific plumbing, it is essential to understand what HVAC stands for. The term HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. These systems regulate the temperature and quality of indoor air.

There are several types of piping used in HVAC systems:

  1. Copper Pipes: These are the most common for refrigeration systems due to their high thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance.
  2. Steel Pipes: Mainly used for heating and hot water systems due to their strength and durability.
  3. PVC Pipes: Lightweight and corrosion resistant, ideal for drainage and condensate drainage.
  4. Polypropylene and PEX pipes: They are flexible and corrosion resistant, used for hot and cold water systems.

Considerations when choosing piping for HVAC systems

  • Material: Depends on the type of fluid or gas to be transported, as well as the operating conditions.
  • Diameter: It is essential to ensure that the diameter is adequate to guarantee an efficient flow and avoid head losses.
  • Insulation: In many cases, pipes must be insulated to avoid energy losses and protect them from adverse environmental conditions.
  • Regulations: It is essential to consider local regulations and industry standards when selecting piping.
