Commercial HVAC systems have much different needs than residential systems, as any business owner or office manager here in Mesa, AZ can tell you. The space is often larger, for one thing, and the specific temperature is often far more than a matter of comfort. Accordingly, many business spaces opt to use modular units, which means multiple HVAC units all contributing to the heating and cooling needs of the building (as opposed to one centralized unit, which you usually find in residential homes). It may seem like a lot of extra work, especially when they’re first being installed, but in fact modular units provide a number of benefits that can specifically help commercial spaces. We’ve listed a few of the more important ones below:
With businesses, every day seems to bring new changes. Your office space may see new clients occupy it, with very different heating and cooling needs than the old one. Or perhaps it’s the same business, but they’re undergoing an expansion which means new employees and more equipment with specialized needs. Either way, the system needs more (or less) heating and cooling power without simply replacing the whole thing en masse. Modular units let you do that with minimal fuss and bother: meeting changing requirements without costing an arm and a leg.
Ease of Repairs
HVAC repairs are a big deal when it comes to businesses. A space without adequate heating or air conditioning could cost you a huge amount of money in lost customers and employee productivity. A modular system prevents you from putting all of your eggs in one basket. Systematic breakdowns are very rare. Instead, the issue usually effects only one or two units at a time, which means the remaining units can continue to heat or cool your space while the repair technician takes care of the problem.
