A commercial HVAC design needs to be created with several needs in mind. First of all, heating and air conditioning is provided through HVAC systems as a central source of indoor air comfort. Though this is what a common commercial HVAC system is best known for, it’s not the only job an HVAC system must fulfill. In addition to heating and air conditioning a building, a commercial HVAC must also reduce indoor humidity in the air, filter air, ventilate air, and monitor the building for unhealthy carbon monoxide levels. Since all of these duties must be fulfilled by appliances linked in a single group, commercial HVAC design is one of the most important design factors any building may have.
Each duty of a commercial HVAC system must be performed well, and now energy efficiency is also a concern on top of that. Determining the energy necessary to run an HVAC system is important for future budgeting concerns. Energy efficient components and appliances are always a good idea to invest in, since they both save money on energy costs and reduce the effects of pollution. Energy efficient models tend to pay for themselves during their lifetimes by saving money on electric bills. Another main factor in commercial HVAC design is what size or power air conditioning system is necessary for your building. Properly sizing air conditioning equipment will result in the HVAC system running at peak energy efficiency performance while benefiting from all energy consumed.
Advanced commercial HVAC designs can include controls for things like lighting systems, air flow systems, and security systems. These controls can turn off sections of the building’s resources when that area is not currently being used. Having all controls and appliance data in one place can be especially convenient when determining how effectively your appliances are performing.
