My HVAC Hobby

Hello, my name is Nigel and I live in New South Wales with my partner and our three kids. I am really interested in HVAC systems. It isn't my job or anything, I just got interested in it. My friends often poke fun at me because of my unusual hobby but I don't mind. It all started when I visited my friend who is an HVAC contractor. He was working on a unit and he started to explain how the different components worked together. I was fascinated and when I got home, I took the cover off my HVAC system and cleaned it out. Since then, I have started to maintain and repair HVAC systems for friends if they can't get hold of a professional. I decided to start this blog to help others.

How Can Your Commercial Building Benefit from a Rooftop AC System?

When it comes to choosing an air conditioning system for your commercial building, you need to decide where it will be placed. Proper placement can increase the efficiency of the unit, improve indoor air quality, and ease maintenance of the AC unit. One of the places that you can consider when installing the system is your building's rooftop. By setting up the unit on the roof, you can save valuable space in the building without compromising on the size or configuration of the AC system. Read on for some more ways a rooftop installation of your AC unit can be beneficial to your building.

Install a modular AC unit

One of the drawbacks of installing an AC unit inside the building is that it can be hard to modify the unit due to space requirements and other complications. As a result, you may be stuck with a system that's not flexible to the changing cooling needs in the building. With a rooftop installation, you can install a modular unit that allows you to make modifications based on the requirements of each part of the building. With several modules, you can cool rooms individually and maintain the indoor air quality. For example, on a cool morning, you would want to switch off the AC or increase the temperatures in the office spaces. However, the basement section that holds the server room or heating equipment may still require cooling due to the heat generated.

Have a quieter building

AC and HVAC equipment, in general, tend to produce noise as they operate in a building. The noise can be unbearable, especially if the occupants of the building require a quiet environment to function. A rooftop installation allows you to achieve this as the AC units are installed outside the building and away from the rooms. Although the system will still generate some level of noise, it won't be a nuisance to the building users. Just make sure that you keep the ductwork and filters clean to avoid debris buildup which can also cause the AC to generate annoying noises.

Enjoy easy maintenance

Maintaining the cooling equipment in a commercial building can be an uphill task. If the unit is not divided into modules, it can be difficult and time-consuming to locate and repair faults in the system. However, with a modular system, a contractor can inspect modules individually, identify problems, and fix them quickly. Cleaning the filters and ducts also becomes easy as you can quickly identofy clogs in specific ductwork.

As you can see a rooftop AC has numerous benefits to offer. Contact an HVAC contractor, like one from Needhamair, for system installation and regular maintenance to improve the efficiency of the AC unit.
