Large businesses often have to deal with unique challenges, including HVAC maintenance, repair, and replacement. The air conditioner at a commercial property can be challenging to manage, especially if the wrong contractors are on the job.

MHC Air Services knows how to take on any commercial HVAC issue without a problem. We’ve been providing commercial businesses with HVAC services for decades, and we’re here to help you with yours.

Here, we’ll discuss how commercial HVAC systems operate and why you need experienced professionals to solve common issues.

Types of Commercial HVAC Systems

Every structure is a bit different when it comes to heating and cooling. In general, there are three common types of HVAC systems:

  • Centralized: Centralized HVAC systems consist of large, singular heating and cooling units that take care of the heating and cooling of the entire building. These large, complex systems serve every room on every floor.
  • Decentralized (individual): Decentralized HVAC systems consist of many smaller HVAC units, each one serving just a few floors or a few rooms of a building. This allows for more individualized control for heating and cooling different spaces.
  • Packaged: Packaged HVAC systems are small units that feature an air conditioner and heat pump in one unit. These small-sized units are ideal for small commercial properties.

A well-trained team of technicians must perform repairs or replacements for each of these systems. Each system has its own intricacies that require special tools and care that differ significantly from a home AC unit or heater.

How Do Commercial HVAC Systems Warm or Cool a Property?

While commercial HVAC systems are much more complex than residential HVAC systems, they operate similarly. Each system could have any of the following:

  • Heat pump: A system that extracts heat from water or air.
  • Air conditioner: A system that removes humidity from the air and cools the property.
  • Radiator: A system that fills with hot or cold water, radiating the temperature into a room.
  • Chiller: A system that cools down water that is sent through a piping system for cooling.
  • Furnace: A system that burns fuel to generate heat for a property.

These are just a few parts of an HVAC system, and each building will have its own combination of these units to produce warm or cool temperatures.

Why Commercial HVAC Systems Require Specialists

Commercial HVAC systems are more complex than a typical home HVAC system. The heating and cooling units are much larger, and the interconnected ductwork serves every room on every floor of the structure. When problems arise with a heater or air conditioner at a commercial property, you need specialists that have the tools and talents to handle the job.
