What is psychrometrics and why is it important in HVAC systems?

Psychrometrics is the study of the physical and thermodynamic properties of air, particularly as they relate to moisture content and temperature. It’s a critical field in HVAC systems because it helps engineers and technicians understand how to control and manipulate air properties to achieve desired indoor conditions. By accurately calculating psychrometric properties, HVAC professionals can design and operate systems that provide optimal comfort, indoor air quality, and energy efficiency.
