What commercial services can tell you about picking the right HVAC equipment.
If you’re a business owner, you need advice from the commercial services pros when deciding on HVAC equipment. The temperature and climate inside your business can either add to or take away from your success. Don’t make the mistake of thinking any old commercial system will do, because size matters. Too big or too small can change the way you heat and cool your building.
Here’s what you need to know about HVAC equipment and your business:
Over-Sized Equipment Is Trouble
Bigger is not always better. If you go with an HVAC unit that is too big for the square footage of your building, you won’t enjoy more heat; instead you’ll end up with less efficiency. Here are some of the problems you could encounter with equipment that is too big for your building:
- Short-cycling heating and cooling periods, making your system run less efficiently
- Inability to maintain temperatures
- Excessive energy use
Under-Sized Equipment Can’t Get the Job Done
If the HVAC equipment is not big enough with enough capacity for your space, you’ll have problems with temperature control and energy use as well. Under-sized equipment will have to work harder to try to keep up with demand; its cycles will be longer as it never quite reaches the desired temperature. This constant running results in much unneeded strain on the equipment and excessive energy consumption that drives up your utility bills.
Right-Sized Equipment Is the Winner
Selecting HVAC equipment that is the perfect size is even more critical for commercial use than for residential use. This is where our commercial services come in. Winston-Salem businesses trust our expertise to guide them to make the right choice for the building based on some basic factors:
- The size of the space
- The average number of people who will be using the space at any given time
- The output of heat from appliances, tools, and other mechanicals
- The desired energy efficiency you need or want for your business
These factors all come into play when your HVAC contractor makes a recommendation for the right size unit for your building and its use.
