4 Things to Consider When Choosing Commercial HVAC

Heating and cooling are two of the most important elements of a commercial property. Make sure you’re getting the most from your HVAC system by partnering with the right mechanical service provider. 

Every HVAC system comes with a limited lifespan. Older equipment not only exerts a lot of energy, but it also requires much more maintenance. You could opt to keep your HVAC system on life support, but that can be an exhausting way to prolong some of the mechanical issues you might already be facing. If you’re tired of dealing with the mess, you may need to partner with an experienced HVAC provider to find the next best solution.

Fortunately, a few important steps can help make the decision-making process a lot easier. 

Weigh Your Options

Your first order of business is to choose the right heating and air conditioning setup. Not all heating and cooling systems are the same because HVAC equipment comes in different shapes and sizes. Before you schedule an installation, perform diligent research to see what capabilities each system has to offer. This will help you determine which solution makes the most sense for your building. 

Here are three of the best options:

  • Packaged Units: This is the ultimate space-saving solution. A single cabinet is programmed to provide a consistent flow of cool air during the summer and warm air during the winter. These central-air systems also come with powerful dehumidifying capabilities.
  • Heat Pumps: This is your best option for heat compression. Instead of forcing air into the building, the heat boiler condenses water into a safe, comfortable gas. Heat pumps provide exceptional heating and cooling efficiencies in any venue.
  • Ductless HVAC: If you want to improve energy efficiency, ductless air might be your best option. Ductless HVAC systems heat and cool different zones of the property while reducing energy usage in the air handling equipment.  

Select the Appropriate Size

When choosing an HVAC system, it’s important to know that bigger isn’t always better. Oversized units consume a massive amount of energy, which may cause your utility bills to skyrocket. On the other hand, choosing equipment that is too small will hinder your system’s ability to cool effectively. Schedule an appointment with an experienced HVAC contractor like [Service Unlimited] to find a solution that aligns with the size and design of your building. 

Account for the Outdoor Climate

When choosing HVAC equipment, you need to select a system that can keep up with any extreme climate. Buildings need to maintain a steady level of efficiency, and to ensure they are able to do this, you’ll need to keep the temperature at a level that can cope with the weather outside. Partner with an HVAC provider that designs custom solutions to help you maintain a comfortable indoor climate that combats the outdoor weather. 

Claim ENERGY STAR® Support 

ENERGY STAR is an energy-efficiency assistance program offered by the [U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)]. Its HVAC solutions offer the strongest energy performance. If your HVAC provider is steering you away from ENERGY STAR products, you may need to continue shopping around until you find a partner that leads you down the right path.

How In-House Fabrication Helps Us Deliver Better Service

All of our years of service have taught us that the best way to deliver value to our clients is by being your single source of HVAC system solutions. To address this, we have structured our services to provide everything you will need from a single point of contact. As a result, this makes your projects simpler to plan and easier to execute. One of the ways that we have expanded our services is by developing and running our own in-house fabrication shop for ductwork.

As a versatile HVAC installer, we work in a variety of conditions and with many different raw materials. We saw the opportunity to eliminate inefficiencies by creating our own metal fabrication shop. We did this so we could become a better service provider and pass on all of the advantages to our clients. Our HVAC fabrication facility comes with several benefits that make us the best provider for your business.

The Advantages Of In-House Fabrication

  • Time
    • The most significant benefit of having in-house fabrication in our facility is the time it saves both you and us. Using a contracted third party adds time to the overall project and another level of complexity that is unnecessary. We have a more efficient supply chain with few links in the chain between your project design and installation process.   
  • Quality Control
    • Contracting sheet metal ducts out to a third party, even a reliable partner, puts the quality of our work in someone else’s hands. With our own shop, we are able to deliver greater quality assurance. This allows us to stand behind the manufacturing process that we manage. We are your single source for HVAC systems, and we are proud of the work we do.   
  • Lower Labor Cost
    • Without a third party, we do not pay the markup prices. This is what you can expect with the added processes found when working in someone else’s fabrication facility. We are able to pass those savings on to you by lowering our overall costs. Operating within our shop also means we have our processes for managing your projects and equipment. This cuts down on any downtime or disruptions in your project deadlines.
  • Tailored Solutions
    • When it comes to heating and air conditioning systems, it is all about the efficient distribution of air throughout your facility. The best way to deliver those results is with systems that have been designed and developed with your unique requirements in mind. Our in-house fab shop enables us to provide solutions that are not one-size-fits-all.  
  • Reduces Waste
    • Being in charge of the complete fabrication process empowers us to reduce the amount of overall waste from any project. Less waste means lower material costs for you and a reduced impact on the environment. This is an advantage for everyone involved.
  • Ensures Compliance
    • Depending on your industry and location, there are different regulations and building codes that any project must abide by. SUI is already familiar with maintaining compliance with industry standards and federal regulations. Keeping our process in house means that we are able to exercise greater control. In return, this allows us to make sure all of your equipment and hardware meet your compliance needs.
