Businesses and commercial spaces need proper HVAC systems just like homes do. Otherwise, your employees won’t be able to work comfortably and customers will go somewhere more pleasant to do business. That’s a huge concern here in Orlando, FL, especially considering the heat of our long summers. But despite having the same basic features and goals, commercial HVAC systems differ from their commercial brethren in a number of ways, most designed to cover a greater amount of space with minimal fuss and bother. The more you understand about the common features of commercial HVAC systems, the better you can address potential problems and concerns.
While most home HVAC systems use just a single unit to condition their air, commercial HVAC systems adopt a modular approach, using multiple units to cover a single space. There’s a number of reasons for this. In the first place, it allows you to add new units or take existing units away to match the particular needs of the space. So if a new business moves in or an old one needs greater or lesser HVAC power, the system can address it without having to deal with wholesale replacement. Furthermore, if repairs are needed, then a technician can deal with the malfunctioning unit while the remaining units continue to provide heating and/or cooling for your space.
Space is at a premium in business. The space used by an HVAC system can usually also be used for employee workspaces, retail space, storage or parking. Instead of taking up that space, commercial HVAC systems can be placed on the roof, keeping them out of the way while still providing ready access in the event they need to be replaced or repaired. It also allows new units to be added or old ones to be removed without disrupting business inside the building.
