If you own a business, it’s very important to get a good deal on your heating system and also make sure you don’t have to worry too much about expensive and frequent repairs throughout the next couple of decades. Regardless of the type of heating system you want to buy, contracting with the right company is always something you need to look for, as not every HVAC company is the same, and some simply don’t have the manpower or the qualification to handle larger systems.
Where Should You Start?
Depending on the size of your building, you might need to look at the capacity of the HVAC you want to get and either purchase a large central HVAC system that can supply heat and cooling for your entire building, or buy multiple systems that use intricate ductwork and precise thermostats to transfer heat energy throughout all your offices and rooms.
Now, if your office is in a building that already has its own system installed, you won’t have to worry about heating, but if you purchase a small shop in your area and want to install new heating, then it’s a good idea to start looking around for the best system and for the most proficient HVAC company to help you install it.
Your best choice is to research the type of HVAC you would like to install and look at what options you have depending on the square footage of your business location. A larger square footage would naturally require a high powered or more complex/expensive system to provide added heat. Depending on the size involved, the complexity, placement, mechanism and drainage of a commercial HVAC might differ from that of a residential system. Also, there can be differences in maintenance and repair costs, so you have to make sure you hire a skilled HVAC heating service Denver contractor to install your system properly.
The Need for a Commercial HVAC
Small businesses typically contract with regular heating service companies simply because the location and size of the building, apartment or office area that they use is small enough to qualify for being fitted with the same kind of HVAC that a regular home would have. Whether you install a boiler or a standard furnace and AC system, there won’t be much difficulty with getting it up and running, setting up all the safety elements up to code, or even installing extensive ductwork. A regular heating service will be able to take care of everything properly.
The main issue arises when a common residential HVAC is not enough to heat your commercial space. Then you have to contact a commercial HVAC contractor and have them check on your building and come up with either a standard or a unique commercial solution to help you get the heat output you need while saving as much money as possible.
In most cases, however, the need for a commercial HVAC company will be limited unless you use a large area such as a multi-floor building, a warehouse or a factory. Keep in mind, however, that different systems have a different power output, so even though your building might qualify for a standard fossil fuel furnace, for example, you might need a commercial system if you want the same heat output for a low yield system such as a heat pump.
