Considerations When Replacing Your Commercial AC Unit

Size of Your Office

Your commercial building will likely use a significant amount of energy to fulfill the space with cooling and heating capabilities. If you want to avoid short cycling, wasting energy, and being billed adequately for your business space, you’ll need a properly sized HVAC system. Depending upon the size of your structures, you could potentially need multiple heating and cooling systems for different areas or have to adjust to the certain needs of your building. The experts at Crossroads Mechanical can complete load calculations to determine the amount of energy your building will need to utilize during the initial consultation and installation process so that your systems are as efficient as possible.

Location of HVAC System

The placement of your company’s HVAC system will determine the overall performance of the system. It’s a no-brainer that easily accessible HVAC systems will help improve maintenance intervals and lower the overall cost of maintenance. If your system has to be mounted on a large rooftop, this could require cranes, more downtime, and even more if heavy parts are required to help maintain the system. A system located on the ground level does not require as much. Crossroads Mechanical is prepared for any of these obstacles and more.

Unit Sizing

When it comes to HVAC systems, there is a misconception that the bigger the unit, the better the building or office it is serving will cool. This is, unfortunately, not how HVAC systems operate. If you want to get the most out of your cooling and heating system, you need a properly sized unit, otherwise known as its capacity, to serve the needs of your building.

Expert Services You Can Count On

When it comes to starting out as a new business owner, we are very aware these things can be confusing or even often overlooked. If you aren’t careful, you could end up overpaying for a system that doesn’t work properly for your building. Your HVAC systems capabilities should be a relief, not a curse! As Crossroads Mechanical is dedicated to providing you with design, consultation, and HVAC installation services, you can count on us to provide you with expert service, tips, and advice, every step of the way.
