How Commercial HVAC Differs from Residential Systems
In the majority of residential buildings across the country, people make use of a split system configuration. One system is used for heating, one is used for air conditioning, and the two are cycled back and forth depending on the season. Things are slightly different for commercial HVAC systems. Because of space, fuel, and cost requirements for systems this large, most commercial HVAC systems are heat pumps. That is, they are designed to offer both heating and cooling functions on demand. There are residential systems that do this, of course, but the vast majority of commercial HVAC systems operate this way.
A commercial HVAC system is often installed outside of the building, either next to it or on the roof, with external ductwork connecting it to the building’s ductwork inside. The system uses refrigerant to move heat back and forth between the building and the environment outside. When in cooling mode, the system siphons thermal energy from the air in the building and sends it outside. When in heating mode, the opposite occurs, with heat being siphoned from the air outside and being sent inside to warm the building.

If you want your commercial HVAC system to last as long as possible, you are going to have to treat it the same way you would treat your own residential heating and air conditioning systems. Schedule preventive maintenance for your commercial HVAC systems at least twice a year, in order to cope with the immense amount of wear and tear normal use generates for it. This will help identify problems that need to be solved before they can advance too far, saving you quite a bit of money on repair costs over the life of the system. If a problem does occur, though, you should call for repairs as soon as possible. HVAC problems get much worse the longer they are left alone, so the sooner we can get to your system and repair it, the better.
