How to Completely Change Your Thoughts About HVAC

Welcome to my blog. My name is Betty, and I recently invested in a new heating and cooling system. It had been years since I had purchased our old system, and my husband was alive then. This was the first time selecting my own system. I did a lot of research and even considered taking our HVAC system off the grid. Now, that my house is the perfect temperature all the time, I'm ready to try something else -- so I decided to start a blog. Here, I am going to post a range of blogs on HVAC related issues as well as home repairs and other topics. I hope that you like it.




How to Completely Change Your Thoughts About HVAC

Choosing a commercial air conditioning system for your business

by Eva Fisher

Air conditioning is an important part of any commercial building, as both customers and workers will feel more comfortable in the building if it's properly air conditioned. If you've just opened a business, you need to incorporate the choice of air conditioning into the list of decisions you have to make before opening your business. To make an informed choice on what commercial air conditioning system would suit your business best, you need to know a few things about the most common types of systems.

Single split system

This is a very common system both for commercial and for residential uses. It's a cheap, rather simple system that can both heat up and cool down a space to meet your requirements. They are powerful enough to provide temperature regulation even to large spaces. The downside of this particular type of system is that you need one outdoor unit for every indoor unit. This can create an unappealing appearance of the building from the outside and cause limitations on where you can actually put an air conditioning unit. This type of commercial air conditioning is therefore not the best option if you have multiple rooms that need air conditioning, as this will force you to install a lot of outdoor units on the outside of your building.

Multi split system

The main advantage of multi split air conditioning systems over single split systems is that you only need one outdoor unit for whatever number of indoor units you wish to have. You can also have different types of indoor units in every room and still connect them to the same system. They work the same way as single split units with the ability to produce both hot and cold air. The downside of a multi split system is that it's more complicated than a single split system and therefore will take longer to install, which will add to the overall cost of the system.

VRF air conditioning system

This is the system most appropriate for large buildings with many different spaces that need heating or cooling. If you opt for having a heat recycling VRF system installed, this means you can decide which rooms should be heated and which should be cooled at the same time, while the system sucks the heat in from some areas an redirect them to other areas. This is an advanced, expensive system that might be unnecessary for a small business owner, but if you need to provide air conditioning for a large office complex or a hotel, then this might be the most efficient commercial air conditioning option for you.
