How to Select the Right Commercial HVAC System for Your Business
When shopping, eating in a restaurant, or spending time in any type of commercial building, we often take our comfort for granted. However, the owners and managers of the business didn’t: they made sure to select the right commercial HVAC system to provide ideal, “invisible” comfort for patrons, customers, and clients. They also made certain their employees would enjoy the same comfort.
When you’re looking to install commercial HVAC in Mesa, AZ for your business, you should take the same steps these other successful businesses did in order to have the best system possible put in. It will make for happier workers and more content customers.
Because of the complexity of commercial HVAC systems and the number of factors to consider when choosing and then installing a system, you should hire a professional contractor that specializes in commercial work. Look to Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning and our staff of commercial cooling and heating professionals for the work you need done.
Selecting the Right Commercial Unit
The most popular type of HVAC system for businesses is the rooftop package unit, which comes pre-assembled with all the necessary components to provide both heating and cooling. (You can choose to have a unit that only provides air conditioning if you prefer.) These units are simple for technicians to install and easy for them to maintain without interfering in regular business operations.
But choosing the right unit is about more than pointing toward a rooftop heater/AC and saying, “that one.” You need to have the right size system. Sizing an HVAC unit is important for home comfort, but it is even more critical—and more difficult to determine—in the commercial world. You will need installation professionals to determine the amount of heating and cooling the HVAC system must produce based on the size of the space, the number of people in it on average, and the output of heat from appliances. Your installers will perform a complete load calculation to determine the unit size. This is known as a “Manual J,” which specifically evaluates business facilities.
Ask your installer to quote you on the specifications for standard-efficiency and high-efficiency units, including the estimated costs for its full lifespan. It may turn out that the high-efficiency unit, although costlier to purchase upfront, will offer lower costs for its lifespan. In this case, you are better off paying more for the initial installation in order to receive greater energy savings over all.
Have the Installers Involved As Soon As Possible
You do not want to make an error when selecting a commercial HVAC system. An error in a home installation can turn out costly, but your business will suffer because of the discomfort from a poorly chosen and sized HVAC system. Make sure you start out in the right direction with guidance from HVAC professionals with long experience selecting, sizing, and installing commercial HVAC in Mesa, AZ.
