Here at Custom Air and Heat Inc., we want to help you keep both your home and your business as cool and comfortable as possible. To achieve that goal, we offer both residential and commercial air conditioning services. When searching for a professional HVAC team, it’s important to choose one with the right specialization for your needs. In this article, we at Custom Air and Heat Inc. will be going over some of the differences between residential and commercial air conditioning, and why they matter.
- Residential Air Conditioning- As the name states, residential air conditioning refers to the cooling systems used in private residences. If the air conditioning in your home stops working, you’ll want to call a residential AC specialist. Residential AC systems are smaller than their commercial counterparts, and typically use only one cooling unit. A residential AC system is usually located on the ground, and the unit may be split into two components, one located indoors and one outside.
- Commercial Air Conditioning- The first thing that sets commercial air conditioning apart from its residential counterpart is its scale–naturally a big commercial building will need a larger AC system to effectively cool all that extra space. Because of the increased demand, commercial air conditioning systems often contain multiple, modular cooling units that can be added or taken away as needed.
In addition, commercial air conditioning units are typically located on the roof of the building to save space on the ground and to protect them from vandalism. All of these factors combine to make commercial air conditioning a different beast than the residential kind, so it’s important to hire a team with the right training to care for it. If you are looking for a reliable team to work on your commercial air conditioning, just give us at Custom Air and Heat Inc. a call.
