What Are SMACNA Standards

To ensure that your Lehigh Valley commercial building stays comfortable, it’s important that any HVAC equipment you need is installed correctly. How do you know, though, if the technicians from an HVAC company really know what they’re doing? To help cut through any confusion, SMACNA standards can be quite helpful. At Burkholder’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we are proud to adhere to these standards, and we want you to know and understand what they are so that you can get great results whenever you need HVAC services at your place of business.

The Basics

The association sets standards that address all facets of the sheet metal industry, from duct construction and installation to indoor air quality and air pollution control, from energy recovery to roofing. The standards that SMACNA sets are recognized nationally and are adhered to by most reputable HVAC companies.

Tools for the Pros

In addition to setting standards, SMACNA provides tools for the pros at Burkholder’s Heating & Air Conditioning and other HVAC companies. These come in the form of briefings and technical bulletins that help HVAC technicians understand how best to apply various standards in specific situations. This creates more uniformity across various project sites so that customers can have confidence in the work that is being performed.

Safety for Workers

The third goal of SMACNA is to help keep HVAC workers safe. It’s important that HVAC workers stay safe while on a job site so that injuries don’t cause interruptions to the project. Some SMACNA standards specifically address protective gear that should be worn, cleanup procedures that should be followed, and other important items that help to make a technician’s job as safe as possible.
