Keep Your Business Cool
Business owners may spend more time in their offices than they do at home. And keeping employees and customers comfortable and healthy is important to the bottom line. Unlike residential systems, you can’t buy a commercial HVAC system straight out of the box. Business spaces can range from a storefront to individual offices to giant warehouses, each with their own heating and cooling needs.
Designing the Perfect Commercial System
Choosing the right parts for your commercial HVAC system is critical to keeping your office comfortable and your utility bills low. The delivery capacity of a commercial building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system depends on many factors. These include the building design, the layout of the space, the number of people in the building and climate.
Commercial buildings typically have a larger cooling demand than residential systems, and the right system can keep your bills on budget. Your business may also qualify for new tax incentives and rebates, depending on your area and the size of your business.
Improving Office Air Quality
A new HVAC system can also improve air quality for both your customers and your employees. Indoor air quality, the EPA says, is constantly changing depending on pollutants, building design, the maintenance and operation of climate control and ventilation systems, moisture and humidity, and the building’s occupants and sensitivities.
To improve air quality in your office, the agency recommends:
- Keeping air vents and grilles clear.
- Complying with the building’s smoking policy.
- Maintaining office plants properly.
- Disposing of garbage properly and promptly.
- Placing furniture and equipment with air circulation and ventilation in mind.
Maintaining Your System
Once you have the perfect commercial HVAC system in place, you need to make sure it’s well maintained. Your installer may offer a regular maintenance plan, which can include filter changes and cleaning drains and pans.
