Designing The Best Commercial Air Conditioning for Your Business

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Choosing a commercial air conditioning unit for your business can be a daunting experience, which is why our qualified technicians have compiled a list to ensure you find the best AC for your business.

Know Your Space

It’s impossible to figure out what type of air conditioning system to install without having a proper understanding of the space your unit will be cooling.

  • High Ceilings

    Office spaces with high ceilings can also sometimes have strange air pockets that are slightly warmer than the rest of the room. This is simply due to the volume of air – high ceilings mean that your AC unit has to work a lot harder to circulate cool air around the room. Because warm air naturally rises, you might think that high ceilings won’t be too much of a problem, but your electricity budget will beg to differ. High ceilings often also require more ductwork than spaces with normal ceiling heights.

  • Open Plan Offices

    Open plan offices are great for communication and collaborative workspaces, but can be difficult to keep cool if you only use one air conditioning unit. Desks closest to the main unit can complain of being too cold, while people on the other side of the office might feel too warm.

Know What Your Business Needs

Although every business in South Florida requires air conditioning because of the intense South Florida heat, different businesses have different cooling needs. Certain types of businesses have to maintain constant temperatures, while others can fluctuate slightly.

Take, for example, an IT company that has multiple computers and one or more rooms that house servers and other IT equipment. This equipment has to be kept cool – although computer fans keep single units from overheating, a properly air-conditioned environment will ensure that all devices remain in proper working order.

Pick an Air Conditioning Unit That Suits Your Business

Once you have worked out what type of space you will be dealing with, as well as the air conditioning needs of your business, you can start to decide on different types of AC units.

  • Central Air Conditioning System

    As the name suggests, a central air conditioning system is one large system that has the capacity to cool large spaces. These AC systems have large compressors and the capacity to produce huge amounts of cool air. They are, of course, expensive to run, so it is important to ensure that your business is able to cover the costs.

  • Twin/ Triple Split Air Conditioning

    If you have an open office space or large commercial environment, you might want to consider twin or even triple split air conditioning units. Rather than having one large unit that freezes the people near to it and doesn’t affect the people on the other side of the room, splitting a unit into two or three separate components can help ensure that your space is cooled at an even temperature throughout. The units are all connected to an outside unit and one main controller, so room temperature will remain constant throughout your commercial space.

  • Fans

    Mentioning fans in an article about air conditioning units may seem counter intuitive, but if you have very high ceilings you might want to consider installing fans as well as an AC. Place fans in particularly hot areas, such as near west-facing windows. They will help to circulate air and ensure that your space does not experience hot and cold pockets of air.

As you can see, there are many steps involved in deciding on what AC system to install in your business or commercial space. We recommend contacting one of our qualified technicians for a consultation before making a decision, to ensure that you install an AC that suits your space best.
