The commercial world has different requirements for air conditioning (and heating) than the residential world. Businesses must remain appropriately cooled down to keep customers/clients happy and employees content and productive. These different needs for businesses mean that their HVAC systems are unlike those found in homes. And that means they need installation, repair, and maintenance work from technicians specifically trained on commercial systems.

With the amount of stress that your AC may experience this season, you need to have technicians on which you can count… any time of the day or night.
3 qualities that make commercial ACs different
- Packaged unit design: The majority of commercial HVAC systems are packaged systems, unlike the split systems that most homes use. A split system has an outdoor condenser cabinet and an indoor evaporator unit. Commercial systems have both the condenser and the evaporator—along with the compressor and fans—placed in a single cabinet, which is usually located on the roof. This design and placement saves space for a business, makes the HVAC cabinet easier for a technician to repair without intruding onto the workspace, and helps reduce the noise level from the system. Some package units are also heat pumps, so they can provide heating as well as cooling.
- Size: There is simply no comparison between the size of a commercial system and a residential one. Even a large mansion won’t require the amount of cooling power that a small business space needs. This isn’t only an issue of space, but of the amount of people who need cooling. More cooling is required to accommodate more people, but also to overcome the amount of heat that additional people generate. Commercial air conditioners are vast compared to home systems, and have special requirements with which technicians must be familiar.
- Modular design: Commercial air conditioners are designed as separate modules, usually in 10-ton, 12-ton, 15-ton, and 25-ton units. This makes it easier to construct and move a large and powerful AC system. The main advantage of modular design, however, is that it allows a company to expand without needing to replace the entire air conditioning system. Technicians can increase the cooling load with the addition of a new module of the appropriate size. For businesses that intend to expand, this is a significant benefit.
