Air conditioning is not only important in households, it is also important is most commercial settings as well. Offices, stores, schools, factories and more all require air conditioning systems to keep the workers happy. An air conditioner plays an essential role in almost every building that needs to accommodate a large number of people. Below are some tips about commercial hvac systems.
- Get A Unit With More Capacity – Commercial properties require the air conditioner to have more capacity than that of a residential property. This is because commercial properties have a far greater number of people and machinery in them. These extra people and machinery add heat to the property, which means you need a bigger air conditioner to cool the area.
- Evaporative For Factories – If you own a factory or a large commercial building, an evaporative system may be perfect for your needs. Evaporative air conditioners can cool large areas relatively cheaply, and are often used in car factories or anything where there is a large area with hot equipment. They usually have large plenums that distribute the air across the factory.
- The Heat Load Of Machinery – Machines will add heat load to your office or commercial property. Machines like faxes, photocopiers, and printers will all raise the temperature of your office, meaning you will need a higher cooling capacity. Tell your air conditioning contractor this when getting a quote to be sure you are getting a large enough unit to air condition your property.
- Increase Productivity – Workers that are more comfortable will have higher outputs than workers that are either too hot or too cold. If your commercial property does not have air conditioning, consider adding it to increase productivity and goodwill.
These are just some of the main reasons to have an air conditioner in a commercial building.
