What are the different types of commercial HVAC systems?

Action Commercial HVAC boasts a team of highly trained and NATE-certified experts. We possess years of hands-on experience in commercial HVAC installation and repair, and take pride in a number of advanced VRF HVAC services rendered in executive residencies across San Diego, and the area. With us, you may choose among different types of commercial HVAC systems for your San Diego commercial property, including the following:

1. Split-system heat pumps and air conditioners

Split-system HVAC systems are affordable and can be frequently found in commercial properties. They maintain the indoor temperature at desired levels by transferring heat between outdoor and indoor units. Depending on the size of your property and particular AC needs, you can either opt for a single or multi-split system.

2. VRV and VRF systems

Variable refrigerant volume and variable refrigerant flow systems represent great advancements in the HVAC industry. They have become a favorite option of many commercial property owners due to their energy-efficient quality. These systems combine the inputs from their user, as well as their surroundings, to calculate optimal power consumption necessary to achieve the requested temperature levels and desired comfort.

3. Ductless heat pumps and air conditioners

Unlike split systems, ductless heat pumps and air conditioners are, as their name suggests, completely duct-free, which means that they don’t require any tubing or ductwork to transfer the air into your building. The main advantages of ductless heat pumps and air conditioners are:

  • Energy-efficiency
  • Improved air quality
  • Simple installation procedure

4. Indoor air filtration systems

The main purpose of these systems is to enhance indoor air quality. Therefore, if you want your employees, tenants, clients or guests to breathe freely, indoor air filtration systems are an effective solution for eliminating mold, pollen, cigarette smoke, dust mites and similar allergens from the air.

5. Ventilation systems

Last but not least, our skilled technicians can help you upgrade your commercial property by implementing a state-of-the-art ventilation system into its design. This is particularly important for commercial restaurant owners and caterers who need to meet industry standards defined by the National Fire Protection Association.

How does a commercial HVAC system work?

HVAC systems (Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning systems) include everything from small AC units often found in our homes, to significantly larger systems that we install in industrial buildings, apartment complexes, hotels, etc. They are in charge of maintaining adequate temperature and humidity levels, as well as improving indoor air quality.

As mentioned above, there are different types of commercial HVAC systems, but in general, they operate based on similar principles:

  • AC units serve to lower the temperature levels and reduce the amount of moisture in the air through the use of refrigerant systems.
  • The heating system has the opposite role and it uses gas, water or radiator coils to heat the air.
  • Ventilation systems are the third component of every HVAC system and they serve to filter the air and increase its quality.

What are the components of a commercial HVAC system?

If you want to better understand how the commercial HVAC system in your San Diego property operates, you should get familiar with its main components:

  • Terminal units or so-called blower coils usually consist of an air filter, blower, and coil. We can distinguish between two types of larger units: a make-up air unit, and a rooftop unit.
  • Air conditioner – this is a unit that traps heat from an area and cools the air through a refrigeration cycle.
  • The condenser is a component that consists of a compressor, condenser coils, a fan, and refrigerant lines. It serves to remove the heat from the system.
  • Chillers. They can be air-cooled or water-cooled. Their main purpose is to cancel out any heat energy produced by both indoor or outdoor sources.
  • A heat pump is a part of the HVAC system which can both heat or cool spaces in your commercial building. During summertime, it transfers the indoor heat to the outside and during winter it traps heat from the outside and transfers it inside.

Our San Diego technicians are always ready to share their expertise and answer any additional questions you may have regarding the basic functions and components of your commercial HVAC system.

How long will my commercial HVAC system last?

How long your commercial HVAC system will last depends on various factors including the following:

  • The quality of its design
  • The efficiency of its key components
  • The amount of maintenance
  • Correct system installation
  • Usage demand over the years
  • The climate of your area, etc.

It’s essential to have your HVAC system regularly inspected by skilled commercial HVAC technicians to enhance its performance, longevity, and efficiency. You can count on us to present to you the latest trends and technological advancements in this industry and help you upgrade your existing system to a whole new level.
