Commercial buildings require suitable heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. Without sufficient ventilation, living and working at the commercial site becomes difficult. Any commercial setup is incomplete without heating, air conditioning, or ventilation.
Customer friendliness is vital for the success of any business, to make the life of customers’ comfortable commercial setups must have a properly working HVAC system. Moreover, certain commercial buildings, including hospitals, restaurants, and other similar buildings, require an HVAC system as an essential requirement.
There are different types of heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems for commercial setups. Furthermore, every type uses the same technology and uses similar wall-or-ceiling mounted indoor units. Their applications differ. It is best to find the most suitable HVAC system for your commercial setup, and before that know the type to make the right decision.
The main types of commercial HVAC systems are Single split systems, Multi-Split systems, and VRF or VRV systems.
You can choose a single split system if you are looking for a heating and cooling system for an enterprise-level business, small offices, commercial shopping, server rooms, and restaurants then.
The single split system has a furnace, air conditioner, evaporator coil, and filters. The system ensures that sufficient air circulation occurs across the commercial building, and the air conditioning and heating system also works efficiently. The air conditioning and heating feature provided by the Single-split system is controllable.
A standard thermostat or panel controls the heating and air conditioning effect.
Each unit of the single-split system works independently, ensuring that if one unit stops the other units will continue to work efficiently. Furthermore, a single split system is affordable and suitable for small commercial areas.
A multi-split system works similar to a single split system, but the energy consumption in a Multi-split system is less than a Single-split system. Moreover, the number of working units utilized in a multi-split system is less than the number of working units required in the single-split system.
The heating and air conditioning system of multi-split system saves energy. It also saves money on heating by transferring heat from warm areas to cool areas for achieving the desired heating effect. Besides, a multi-split system ensures that it preserves the look of the commercial building.
VRF and VRV Systems
To provide ventilation, air conditioning, and heating services for large commercial buildings VRF/VRV system is mostly used. VRF system is the same as a VRV system, it is a type of commercial HVAC system.
VRV stands for variable refrigerant volume, and VRF stands for variable refrigerant flow. The VRF/VRV system is suitable for medium to large commercial areas. You can use the VRF system in five-star hotels or other larger offices, retail spaces, big hotels, and industrial setups.
Heat Pump And Heat Recovery VRF/VRV system
The VRF/VRV system is easy to use, install, control, and operate. It is efficient and reliable as it provides sufficient heating and cooling requirements. The system has two types of systems: a heat recovery & a heat pump. Both types give a heating and cooling effect. But the location and timing of air conditioning and heating differ in the two types.
The heat pump VRF/VRV system provides either heating or cooling effects at a given time. Thus, it is suitable for open-plan areas. Whereas, heat recovery VRF/VRV system generates heating and cooling effect, simultaneously at the same time in different areas. Thus, the heat recovery VRF/VRV system is ideal for commercial buildings with multiple rooms. Moreover, the heat recovery VRF system is more flexible than the heat pump VRF system as it allows heating one room and cooling the other at the same time.
