The importance of HVAC systems increases significantly when we move towards commercial purposes from residential purposes. A commercial HVAC system plays a vital role in commercial buildings, restaurants, hotels, and schools that want to make their occupants happy and comfortable in every condition-from hot to cold.
But do you know what exactly an HVAC system is?
An HVAC system stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning services to the customers. It helps to control the temperature of the building or room you want to and make the room environment according to your desires.
How do commercial HVAC systems work?
Different buildings have commercial HVAC systems installed in interconnected systems to provide heating, ventilation, and air conditioning services to the residents of the building. With the help of a commercial HVAC system, you can provide these services to an individual floor of the building or the whole building at once.
Commercial HVAC systems observe heat or water from the air to provide heating services to people. This process is carried out with the help of motor pumps present in the system. Water is carried to different parts of the building with a pipe that is present in the water source heat pumps. Rooftops units can be present at both the upper part of the lower part of the building to provide air conditioning features to people living in the building. The water available in the pipes is then cooled by the chillers and gets distributed to the air pipes containing air cooling foils.
What are the main types of commercial HVAC systems?
While we searched the globe, we found that mostly three types of commercial HVAC systems are used in various parts of the globe. We have mentioned those three commercial HVAC system categories below with a brief note on each.
- Centralized commercial HVAC system
A centralized commercial HVAC system is usually a singular unit that covers a small or single area of a commercial building.
- Packaged commercial HVAC system
A packaged commercial HVAC system is a two-in-one system containing an air conditioner and heat pump together. These commercial HVAC systems are used in commercial buildings that do not have much space to install larger units.
- Individual commercial HVAC system
Referred to as a decentralized commercial HVAC system, these provide heating, ventilation, and air conditioning services from different individual units. Generally, these units are not preferred for larger commercial buildings with a high power workload.
