The Basics of Heating and Cooling for Commercial and Industrial Buildings

MAINTAINING PROPER COMMERCIAL OR INDUSTRIAL BUILDING TEMPERATURE

The importance of maintaining a comfortable atmosphere in a commercial or industrial business cannot be overemphasized. For a business, having customers comfortable is of prime importance. In an industrial building providing workers and visitors with a well-regulated temperature is of prime importance for an enjoyable work place.

Government studies have shown that commercial air conditioners increased employees’ productivity in offices and factories at least 25 percent. It also reduced absenteeism. This results in fewer problems in the workplace and fewer problems for management.

Customers entering a business need a comfortable atmosphere if they are to shop without the discomfort of a cold or hot temperature. Businesses have found that proper air conditioning solves the problem and results in an increase in sales.

This means that your HVAC must be working well and providing the heat or cool air that is required. Having the proper unit and providing proper maintenance will fill this requirement.

FINDING THE RIGHT COMPANY FOR INSTALLATION

Installation of a commercial HVAC unit often requires custom sheet metal fabrication as well as a specific design for building adaptation. This means contacting a reliable company that has a proven track record in this field. They will have an expert come to your location, take measurements and discuss your particular needs. He will then present an estimate of the work to be done. As a rule, there is no charge for this service.

Naturally, on a large industrial or commercial building, drawings will have to be made to provide an outline of the installation. This should be presented for your approval. The location of air ducts is especially important. These are quite large and in many cases must be concealed.

There are many excellent HVAC models that are especially designed for commercial installation. A few of these are Carrier, Trane, Rheem, Lennox, York, Amana and others. Choosing the right size is especially important if the desired temperature is to be maintained. After determining your need, the air conditioning company will make a recommendation regarding which unit is best for your needs.

Having an experienced company taking care of your heating and cooling system on a regular basis saves a great deal of money in the long run. A regular maintenance program, by experts, makes it easy to quickly spot, and correct, any defects that can develop into major problems over time. This will save you money as well as the headache of a broken down HVAC system.
