What HVAC Systems Are Available For Commercial Buildings?

Commercial HVAC systems are larger and more powerful than residential systems, but they are also designed for efficient, reliable operation. There are several commercial HVAC options available, including variable-air-volume systems, heat pump systems and systems that rely on cooling towers, chillers and boilers. Some commercial HVAC systems are designed for rooftop installation, while others are intended for group installation. Read more

What Is A Heat Pump?

A heat pump is an air conditioner that’s built with a reversing valve, so it can be used to cool and heat a building. Though it sounds like a heat pump is only for heating, the term refers to the movement of heat, so a heat pump moves thermal energy from one place to another.

Heat pumps move this thermal energy against a thermal gradient. What does that mean? It means the system transfers heat from a place where there is less heat, to a place where there is more heat. In practice, this means moving heat from inside a building to the hotter exterior air. In the winter, it means moving heat from the cold outside air to inside. Read more

What Needs To Happen For Commercial Heating Systems

How should property owners maintain their commercial heating systems?

With regular maintenance, commercial heating systems last longer, run more efficiently and provide better comfort to the building’s occupants. According to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), a commercial HVAC system should provide between 10 and 15 years of efficient performance. This is with regular maintenance, though, and without it, the system’s lifespan could be as little as five years. Read more

What Are The Different Types Of Heating Systems?

Many households in the U.S. use a central furnace to generate and distribute heat, and these furnaces may be powered by natural gas or electricity. There are alternatives, too, like heat pumps and boilers. Which option makes the most sense for a home depends on a few factors, like the surrounding climate, the home’s layout and other priorities, like cost and safety. Read more
