Commercial air conditioning uses the same basic system that residential air conditioners do: cycling refrigerant gas through a series of valves and coils that first shift it to a liquid form, then revert it to a gaseous form. (The process pulls heat from the air, which can then be blown into your home with a fan.) But while the basics are the same, the specifics vary a great deal. Commercial air conditioning must handle a much larger load than residential systems, and must often adjust to fit the needs of new businesses as old ones change locations. Here in Fort Walton Beach, FL,commercial air conditioning systems need a service that understand the differences to install and maintain them. Here are 3 key components of commercial air conditioning that set them apart from smaller systems.
- Modular. Business needs change a great deal when it comes to air conditioning. A software company with a lot of high-end computer hard drives needs much more power to keep cool than a greeting card store for instance. But you can’t simply install a new air conditioning system every time a new tenant occupies the space. So commercial systems are designed to be modular. Whenever you need more power, you can simply add a new unit onto the existing system. If you need less power, you can detach a unit, or just shut it off. It retains the required flexibility without skimping on cooling power.
- Rooftop Placement. All those modular units take up a lot of space, which most businesses would prefer to use for other things. That’s why most commercial AC units are placed on the roof, where they’re out of the way and yet can still do their jobs effectively.
- Sturdy. Because the units are on the roof, they need to be able to handle the rigors of sun and torrential rain alike. That means they’re very sturdy, as well as being comparatively simple.
