Keeping your place of business cool during the sweltering heat of late summer is critical for your business, customers, and your employees. Instead of cranking up your old commercial AC unit and hoping for the best, take a minute to learn about some business cooling systems that might bring down the indoor temperature and help keep your business comfortable all summer long.
The most common system for most businesses that provides reliable and consistent comfort and cooling is the standard ducted split system. The split in the name indicates the primary components split between an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. Like central AC in homes, a ducted split uses ducts and vents to get the air from one place to another. The system pulls air into the unit inside the building, pushes it to the outdoor unit, where the compressor and condenser coil cool it, and then circulates it back inside, where a blower pushes it out through the ducts to the vents to cool your building space. The ductless commercial AC unit is a great option for many business owners because they’re energy-efficient, effective for small and large buildings, user-friendly, and easy to maintain.
The duct-free or ductless split-system is another option that works well for commercial cooling. This option is like the ducted split that uses an indoor unit and outdoor unit to cool. However, it differs in that it doesn’t rely on installed ductwork to transfer air from the unit into the building space. Instead of using ducts to move air, the ductless split blows the cooled air from the smaller units installed in each space within the building. Disadvantages of this type of system are loud blowers which can be distracting and annoying in small, quiet spaces and interior wall installation, which can make them an eyesore. The benefits of a ductless system include not having to install and maintain a large network of ducts to carry the air and being able to cool individual spaces with custom temperatures instead of cooling the whole building.
Another business cooling system option is a packaged system, which is like the ducted option, but not split into two units. A packaged system contains all the primary operating components in a single box typically located on the roof of your building. The packaged unit is a space-saving option and one that is significantly quieter than the ducted split.
Several business cooling systems are available to you for your business. Narrowing down the choices is often the most challenging part of upgrading your commercial AC.
