A lot goes into the design of new office space, including determining the best location for your commercial HVAC unit. A commercial unit is often much larger than a residential one and therefore requires a larger space. Where you choose to place the unit can also affect the efficiency and comfort of your Peachtree City, Georgia, office. Consider a few of the most common commercial HVAC locations.
You may choose to have your HVAC unit installed both indoors and outdoors. This type of installation is similar to your home unit, with the cooling unit outside of the building and the furnace and air handler indoors. The biggest problem, however, is that because commercial units are much larger than residential ones, you will need a much larger space. This can cut into outdoor parking and storage.
The rooftop is one of the most common places for a commercial HVAC unit. Placing your unit on the roof gives you ample amounts of space, which is ideal for larger commercial buildings. Additionally, you don’t have to give up valuable office or outdoor space with a rooftop unit.
Rooftop units come in all sizes and shapes, and it is important to consult with a professional to make sure you choose the right one for your office.
Some commercial offices will opt for a separate, indoor HVAC room. Many commercial units are split systems, which mean that some parts of the unit are outdoors while others are indoors. While a unit stored in an interior room may be easier to access for maintenance, the noises can disrupt the office. Choosing a unit that is efficient and quiet is more important when it is placed indoors.
It is important to choose the right location for your commercial HVAC unit. Most property owners opt for a split system with some parts on the roof and other parts in a designated HVAC room.
