Would you stay in a building that is so hot?
It is unlikely that anyone would ever want to be there. When the air conditioning system fails to work properly and efficiently enough, managers and owners of commercial and industrial buildings are often faced with complaints from tenants or workers.
Comfortable Indoor Air
The manager of the facility must make sure that the indoor climate is comfortable for everyone. They will need to make sure that their rafter mounted HVAC systems can deliver the indoor temperature that is required by the building.
What Is HVAC?
HVAC stands for heat, ventilation, and conditioning. An HVAC system comprises heating and cooling equipment. This includes furnace, boiler condenser, compressor, heat pump, heat pumps, and all the necessary ductwork.
The HVAC system provides three functions, which are often combined into one in commercial, industrial and residential buildings. The HVAC system may also be responsible to dilute indoor airborne contaminants, such as odors resulting from industrial chemicals or volatile compounds. If properly maintained and maintained, an HVAC system that is well designed will create a comfortable indoor environment all year.
Roof-Mounted Or Ground-Mounted
HVAC equipment can either be mounted on the rooftop or a foundation slab in the basement depending on where it will be used. Most contractors estimate the size of the building and then engineer and select the HVAC equipment and systems that will work best for it.
A larger building's HVAC system is designed, evaluated, and priced by its building service managers. Commissioning and fabrication are typically performed by specialty mechanical contractors.
Placement of equipment is an important aspect of HVAC systems in commercial buildings or industrial facilities. It can make a difference in efficiency and cost savings. They can be installed on the roof or directly on the ground.
Roof-Mounted HVAC System
A packaged rooftop HVAC unit for industrial facilities is required because of a variety of reasons, including:
- Space Saving
- Heating and cooling in one
- Easy to install, pre-assembled
The best place for HVAC systems to be placed is typically the roof. It is important to account for all functions in a commercial or manufacturing facility. The components of larger HVAC units are stored in separate cabinets. Roof-mounted HVAC systems allow for more floor space which can be used to manufacture other functions.
One Heating And Cooling System
Roof-mounted HVAC systems are often designed to handle all the cooling or heating needs of an industrial facility. It's convenient, and it also makes it easier to maintain and repair the units without disrupting the other functions and activities of the building.
Installing roof-mounted HVAC units is much easier than it sounds. The only requirement is to install vibration isolation bars for the HVAC in self-contained cabinets. This will eliminate vibration, lower sound levels in the occupied space, and mask the sound from equipment. It will not cause any disruption to the building's operation by installing or adding new systems.
