An important part of business operation is climate and air quality control which is maintained best with an expertly installed commercial HVAC system. Knowing the various options of HVAC system elements will assist in understanding what you may need to discuss with your HVAC professional. Ask any business owner and they will tell you that a happy employee is the best employee and most productive. They will also key you in on the fact that environmental conditions play a large role in an employee’s satisfaction at work; maybe even as large a role as incentives play. Business owners generally need commercial HVAC systems that are as efficient as they are energy saving. Small buildings typically only need one or two systems installed; however, larger building usually employ the use of several systems in order to maintain an optimal internal environment. As these businesses operate on a budget, it is essential that these systems promote energy efficiency, saving on the business’s overall costs.
Many public buildings use central heating systems that can generally contain one of the following:
• Heat Pump
Smaller commercial HVAC systems may use a couple units housed in a small area within the building such as a storage room or similar. Larger commercial HVAC systems may comprise of several units housed in a large area such as a basement or a boiler room or mechanical room. The system generally will amass a larger area than smaller buildings and may also be comprised of forced air systems or heated fluid systems.
Ventilation remains one of the most important elements of an HVAC system. Ventilation is especially important within public buildings as it filters out the nasty air and allows clean air to be recycled throughout the building. What this does is generate more quality air allowing the clean air to be circulated while toxins such as smoke, gas, etc. are filtered outside of the building. There are various types of ventilation systems, really dependent upon various factors such as the external environment, the budget of the building, etc. Mechanical ventilation, also called forced ventilation which generally use various vents and fans that will transfer internal and external oxygen. Natural ventilation is a more energy efficient process that uses various openings or trickle vents throughout the building in order to ventilate the area. With the mechanical method proving effectiveness at maintaining comfortable climate and the natural ventilation method proving energy efficiency, the two combined are commonly used for maximum efficiency.
Commercial Air Conditioning
Commercial HVAC systems usually comprise the use of several central air units that work together to provide cool air within public and commercial buildings. Newer buildings are created with central, all-air A/C systems, however they are not easy to retrofit, so older buildings employ the use of the most efficient traditional units. The commercial A/C system will also involve refrigeration as a method to control the cold air transfer throughout buildings. There is also extensive duct installation that must be performed properly in order to prevent the release of bacteria within the building.
Commercial HVAC Companies
Commercial HVAC companies are made up of the highest skilled HVAC professionals that have extensive training in commercial HVAC. They are able to fully optimize HVAC systems within public and private commercial buildings providing top services that comprise state-of-the-art technologies that are more and more advancing toward energy efficiency and more cost-effective systems. Through proper and expert installation to appropriate maintenance and comprehensive HVAC techniques, buildings are provided with optimal climate and air quality control.
