When looking into HVAC systems for your business, you have a few considerations to make that homeowners do not have to deal with. For one, you have to select a unit that can handle a much heavier load due to the square footage. For another, you have space to consider. Commercial HVAC systems are extremely heavy, and take up a lot of space. In most businesses, every bit of space is at a premium. You probably don’t have an entire large room to devote solely to your HVAC system. That’s where rooftop installation comes in. Let’s take a look at the benefits of rooftop commercial HVAC installation.
As previously mentioned, commercial HVAC systems require a great deal of space that most businesses don’t have. If you’ve got the room to put a literal ton of equipment in a basement somewhere, more power to you. But if you’re like most businesses, that just isn’t an option. That’s why rooftop installation is so popular for commercial HVAC systems. The equipment is out of the way, freeing up more room for you to conduct your business.
Rooftop commercial HVAC units are also quite convenient for any repair or maintenance work that has to be done. If a commercial HVAC unit ends up being installed in a back room or basement, it tends to be very difficult to gain access to all parts of the unit. Rooftop units, on the other hand, tend to be surrounded by plenty of open space, making them much easier to access and repair.
There is one thing you should consider when deciding whether to install a rooftop commercial HVAC unit. Inclement weather can affect rooftop units, due to their exposure. As long as you conduct regular preventive maintenance, this isn’t really an issue. If you live in an area with lots of rain or snow, however, take special care of your system or you may find yourself paying for costly repairs.
