Commercial Heating and Air-Cooling Units
Commercial heating and air-cooling units are installed in building that are not considered residential, some commercial buildings can be labeled as residential use, examples of residential use buildings are apartment complexes, nursing homes, retirement complexes.
Commercial heating and air-cooling units vary in type and size, to determine the size and how many units are needed to efficiently control the heating and air conditioning for the space size calculations are done using a mathematical formula. The formula used has many factors, the main parts of the formula are based on square footage of the air temperature to be controlled and the BTU’S (size) of the system. There are many other factors, including how many people will normally be in the space, how many windows are in the space.
Placement of units can be in different places, some placed outside on the ground level, some are placed on the roof of the building and others are placed in the mechanical room.
Controlling the temperature in the building, some buildings have numerous offices or tenants and in those areas of the building there is usually a separate thermostat that allows them to control the air temperature for that space. Retail stores and some other commercial building may use a computer program to control the air temperature from the corporate offices.
Maintenance on commercial heating and air-cooling systems should be performed by a licensed and insured heating and cooling company and the air filters should be changed quarterly if not more frequently using a good quality filter of the proper size.
