Which Commercial HVAC System is Right for You?
Depending on the type of building, one system might work better than another.
Perhaps a rooftop unit is preferable to an HVAC split system. Read on
to learn the pros and cons of each type of system and determine which
is best suited to your commercial project.
Packaged Rooftop HVAC System
The packaged rooftop HVAC unit, which is sometimes referred to as an RTU,
is the most common system used for commercial
cooling. It contains your standard HVAC components such as a filter, heating unit,
exhaust fan, and an evaporator coil.
Benefits of installing a rooftop HVAC system include:
There are a variety of designs and unit sizes available
One single unit can serve an entire building
They are relatively simple and easy to install
Low installation and maintenance fees
With regular maintenance, your commercial packaged rooftop HVAC unit should
last a long time.
Commercial HVAC Split System
As the name suggests, a commercial split system consists of two main parts:
an outdoor unit and an indoor unit.
The outdoor portion contains:
- Condenser coil
- Expansion coil/Capillary tubing
The indoor portion contains:
- Cooling coil
- Long blower
- Air filter
The indoor and outdoor components of this system are connected through
a set of electrical wires and tubing. These units provide warmth or cool
air to a specific room; there’s no ductwork whatsoever.
Advantages of installing a commercial HVAC split system include:
They operate with little to no noise
It’s possible to expand into a multi-split system
They are energy efficient
They are cost-effective
