Whether installing and maintaining a residential or commercial HVAC system a qualified heating and cooling technician will often complete a similar type of work to ensure the installed system is the correct size and works correctly. In commercial situations, an HVAC engineer is often faced with different problems than those facing a residential HVAC system, with a large amount of space or floors of a building to be affected often leading to great problems. Whether a rooftop or split level system is installed in a commercial environment, the need for proper maintenance and installation remains the same.
When choosing a commercial HVAC system some of the major considerations include the size of the building requiring heating and cooling, with a unit designed to provide warm and cold air for the correct size of building an important factor. A qualified HVAC engineer will be able to make the correct call about where to install a unit, with the obvious decisions about keeping utility bills as low as possible always taken into consideration. During installation and required maintenance, the need to shade the unit should be considered, without blocking airflow to maintain a low level of utility costs.
To ensure the costs of heating and cooling a building are not ignored certification in air balance techniques should be part of the published education of any HVAC engineer. Air balance takes two forms for a commercial HVAC engineer, which include asking users of the commercial building about their comfort level and the settings used for the HVAC system. The second form of air balance technique is more detailed and includes the use of digital equipment to measure the air passing through return vents and the HVAC exhaust to determine how the system is working and what type of maintenance is required.
Of course, maintenance is the most important part of any commercial HVAC system after it has been installed and is running throughout the various seasons of the year. Qualified HVAC engineers ensure all coolant levels are correct and the unit is in good working order. For most commercial business operators one of the best options they can take is to organize regular HVAC maintenance and inspections under the terms of a contract, which should ensure any problems with a system are avoided to avoid lawsuits or problems with illness or injury. Much like in a residential system, a commercial building heated and cooled regularly requires maintenance to ensure the system works correctly.
