These systems require skilled professionals who can install them correctly, safely, in compliance with all applicable codes, and according to regulations.

What is HVAC?
HVAC stands for heating ventilation and air conditioning. It is a common acronym in the heating and air conditioning industry. It generally refers to heating units and central air conditioning in commercial and residential buildings.
You should be familiar with the various types of HVAC systems available for commercial installation. HVAC systems come in a variety of sizes and power and can be classified as:
- Residential HVAC Systems: These systems can be used to heat and cool small businesses and homes.
- Commercial HVAC Systems: These systems can be used for larger commercial properties such as restaurants, retail stores, and fitness centers.
- Industrial HVAC Systems: These systems are used for manufacturing properties that are high in energy consumption and require regulated temperatures. They are commonly found in warehouses.
It is important to choose the right HVAC unit for your company. We can help you determine the dimensions of your HVAC unit, and also describe the products that we offer.
Why a Commercial HVAC System is Important for Your Business
It is important to make a decision about whether or not you want to buy a commercial heating and cooling system. We are happy to talk with you about the pros and cons associated with a commercial HVAC unit so you can make an informed decision.
Here are the top reasons businesses should install a commercial heating/cooling system.
Industrial and Commercial HVAC Units are Stronger than Regular HVAC’s
HVAC units that are used to heat residential homes are not designed for commercial properties. They might not offer the same controls and features as commercial HVAC units, such as smart thermostat technology from ENERGY STAR.
Both commercial and industrial HVAC systems can be tailored to the specific needs of a business. They do not need to overpower their mechanical systems to heat or cool large spaces. An industrial HVAC system is also useful for cooling factories that produce high temperatures.
Insufficiently Regulated Temperatures Can Cause Damage to Raw Materials
Raw materials are used by manufacturers to create their products. Certain materials, like plastics, drug ingredients, and chemicals, require certain temperatures in order to be safe or maintain good quality. Cool temperatures are also required by companies that make food products to ensure the food doesn’t melt or spoil.
You can control the temperature of your building in order to produce high-quality products by having an industrial or commercial HVAC unit.
Your Business Might be Forced to Close Due to a Malfunctioning or Broken HVAC Unit
Your business could be disrupted if you depend on an older air conditioner system for power. You might need to stop production temporarily or close your business because of:
- Employees can’t do their job: Extreme heat and cold can decrease productivity. Some employees might find it too difficult to work, while others may experience serious health problems such as heat stroke or dehydration.
- High temperatures can affect the products being manufactured and sold: Whether your bakery needs to cool down to show your cakes or your factory needs to keep your raw materials safe, a damaged AC system could easily cause serious damage that could stop your products from being sold.
- Customers might not want to visit your business: If you don’t have adequate air conditioning or ventilation, you could lose customers.
Poorly Ventilated Workplaces can Pose a Risk to Employees’ Health
If the nature of the job does not specify, employees with asthma, allergies or other respiratory conditions have the legal right to work in buildings that provide adequate ventilation. A business may be held responsible if it fails to provide workable conditions for employees in certain cases.
According to Official Ventilation Guidelines, Customers Must be in a Safe Environment
COVID-19 has made it mandatory for businesses to maintain well-ventilated areas in order to prevent the spread of the disease.
To prepare their properties for business, business owners can follow the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers(ASHRAE).
