Superior Mechanical Understands Commercial HVAC Complexities
Commercial buildings each have unique purposes, physical layouts, and locations. Because of this, HVAC systems can become complicated quickly. Much larger in size and more intricate than their residential counterparts, commercial HVAC units require regular maintenance and careful planning to avoid serious complications in the future.
Our HVAC technicians and engineers have the experience and education to install, repair, and maintain most major commercial HVAC units, including ground source heat pumps. We take your budget, the size and purpose of your space, heating and cooling needs, and other factors into consideration when evaluating your project.
HVAC Location Planning
Most commercial HVAC systems are located on the building’s roof for several reasons, benefitting both the HVAC system itself and the building’s occupants. Commercial units are typically much larger in size as they require more power and capacity. Because of this, they’re also quite loud. Not only would finding space inside of a commercial building be challenging for such a large unit, it’s noise level would be disruptive.
We recommend installing your HVAC unit on your roof to prevent damage and unnecessary maintenance costs. Rooftop HVAC units are less prone to vandalism and theft compared to ground units. They also collect less dirt, grime, and other types of debris.
Commercial HVAC systems are both large and modular. This means if the needs of your building change, so can your system. Typically speaking, the real estate on top of your roof is less valuable than that inside or in front of your commercial space. There’s more room on your roof to expand an HVAC system without disrupting the physical layout of your warehouse, business, or operation.
Additionally, commercial HVAC systems are complicated to install, repair, and maintain. By having each component of your unit in one central location on your roof, it’s much easier to fix and our HVAC technicians likely won’t need to enter your building.
Single-Split vs. Multi-Split HVAC Systems
The question every property owner asks: Should my building use a single-split or multi-split commercial HVAC system? The answer is that it depends on your needs and the size of your commercial space - and Superior Mechanical can help you make the right decision.
Single-split systems require an indoor unit and a corresponding outdoor unit for each space you wish to moderate. This is usually the most affordable option for smaller commercial properties that don’t need to control the temperature and humidity of multiple rooms independently of one another.
Multi-split systems can connect multiple indoor units to one central outdoor unit. These systems have a smaller physical footprint and are usually more energy efficient compared to single-split units. They also allow for more control of multiple rooms or spaces within a commercial building. However, they’re usually more expensive to install and maintain.
Both single-split and multi-split commercial HVAC systems typically use refrigeration lines, furnaces, and ducts to circulate cool or warm air throughout the building.
Variable Refrigerant Flow or Variable Refrigerant Volume systems are a type of split-system commercial HVAC unit. While many multi-split units can connect roughly ten indoor units to a single outdoor unit, VRF/VRV units can connect upwards of 60. If you have a very large commercial space and need a multi-split HVAC design, work with Superior Mechanical’s team of expert techs and engineers.
Drainage & Ventilation Components
Commercial HVAC systems produce more condensation and require more ventilation compared to smaller or residential units. Superior Mechanical inspects your system and building’s layout to determine the best way to configure your drainage and ventilation components including pipes, pans, and ducts.
