In Southern California, business owners generally need commercial HVAC systems that are as efficient as they are energy saving. Small buildings typically only need one or two systems installed; however, larger buildings usually employ the use of several systems in order to maintain an optimal internal environment. As these businesses operate on a budget, it is essential these systems promote energy efficiency, saving on the business’s overall costs.
HVAC system that is installed correctly has the potential to increase the energy efficiency of the system by as much as 50 percent!

Commercial Air Conditioning
Commercial HVAC systems usually comprise the use of several central air units that work together to provide cool air within public and commercial buildings. Newer buildings are created with central, all-air AC systems, however they are not easy to retrofit, so older buildings employ the use of the most efficient traditional units. The commercial AC system will also involve refrigeration as a method to control the cold air transfer throughout buildings. There is also extensive duct installation that must be performed properly in order to prevent the release of bacteria within the building.
Many public building use central heating systems that can generally contain one of the following:
• Heat Pump
Smaller commercial HVAC systems may use a couple units housed in a small area within the building such as a storage room or similar. Larger commercial HVAC systems may comprise of several units housed in a large area such as a basement or a boiler room or mechanical room. The system generally will amass a larger area than smaller buildings and may also be comprised of forced air systems or heated fluid systems.
Ventilation remains one of the most important elements of an HVAC system. Ventilation is especially important within public buildings as it filters out the nasty air and allows clean air to be recycled throughout the building. What this does is generate more quality air allowing the clean air to be circulated while toxins such as smoke, gas, etc. are filtered outside of the building. There are various types of ventilation systems, really dependent upon various factors such as the external environment, the budget of the building, etc. Mechanical ventilation, also called forced ventilation which generally use various vents and fans that will transfer internal and external oxygen. Natural ventilation is a more energy efficient process that uses various openings or trickle vents throughout the building in order ventilate the area. With the mechanical method proving effectiveness at maintaining comfortable climate and the natural ventilation method proving energy efficiency, the two combined are commonly used for maximum efficiency.
