How Do Commercial HVAC Systems Differ from Residential Systems?

*Air On Demand no longer offers commercial HVAC services – view a full list of our air conditioning services here.

Would you mow several acres of lawn with a push mower, or use a motorcycle for a family of 5? These are strong examples, but they demonstrate one of the key ways residential HVAC systems are different from commercial ones: size. While there are common, fundamental mechanics between commercial and residential systems, the systems are not the same. Working with professionals who have the knowledge and experience needed for commercial HVAC service is important for both you and your business. For over 30 years, Air on Demand has been providing commercial HVAC services in Pinecrest, and our trained technicians are available for any commercial repair you may need.

What Are the Differences?

As we stated above, one of the biggest differences between commercial and residential HVAC systems is their size. But there are others that are also important:

  • Many are packaged units – because commercial HVAC systems have to cover a great deal more square footage than the average household, they are often manufactured as one large unit called a packaged unit. These units are called packaged because all the components – the compressor, condenser and evaporator – are all housed in a single cabinet. This makes repair work easier because the components are more accessible.
  • Complex drainage – a commercial HVAC system covers large spaces; as such, the drainage system is far more complex than the simple condensate tray and drain you’ll find in a residential property.
  • Use of modular units – over the last few years, modular units have become very popular in the commercial HVAC industry due to their flexible nature. As businesses move in and out of spaces, cooling needs can vary; with a modular system, these needs can be met without having to re-design the cooling for that space. If less cooling is needed, one of the modular units can be removed; if more is needed, a modular unit can be added.

Having the proper amount of cooling is vital to your business. Do you really want to trust it to a company that doesn’t specialize in commercial HVAC services in Pinecrest? If you have been experiencing problems with your commercial HVAC system, call the professionals you can count on: Air on Demand.
