A comfortable indoor environment within your Plainfield-area business is not just important for your comfort, but it is also essential for the health, safety, and well-being of clients and employees, and can also help to preserve sensitive equipment. When considering a commercial HVAC installation such as a new air handling unit, it is important to ensure the unit and installation will be up to code and consider purchase, installation and operating costs as well.
An air handling unit can do much to increase comfort and savings, but you have to select the right unit for your company’s needs. Selecting the right unit will also involve considering factors such as the size and nature of the business, and the number of occupants. The unit will also need to be properly installed for you to reap full benefits.
Your Air Handler
An air handler (AHU) is also referred to as an air handling unit. It regulates the circulation of hot or cold air through a building via ductwork. It is a large metal box that is usually placed on the roof of buildings. Larger units contain several heating and cooling elements and are also called packaged or rooftop units. Smaller units contain the air filter, coil, and blower and can be placed indoors.
Modern air handlers are very energy efficient and provide reliable and consistent heating and cooling. They are highly-durable systems that are available in a variety of styles and configurations to enhance operation and facilitate maintenance.
An air handler is a good option when the weather is more on the mild side. This will help you to conserve energy as you won’t have to rely on the furnace as much. This efficient use of your heating system keeps you comfortable and helps you to reduce those energy bills.
Indoor vs. Outdoor Air Handlers
When installing a new air handling unit for your business, you have two options: rooftop units and custom designed interior units. Rooftop units offer:
- Easy access
- Easy installation
- Efficient use of space
- Built in filtration and humidity controls
Interior air handling units are also an option for business owners. The features of interior air handling units include:
- High energy efficiency
- Can use water for heating and cooling
- Constant inflow of fresh air from the outdoors
Benefits of Installing New Commercial HVAC Systems
Upgrading your air handling unit can decrease your monthly utility costs. Lower monthly expenses can add to your profitability. Today’s newest air handling units are more efficient than ever before. They are built with environmentally friendly coolants and use the latest technology to deliver constant and consistent comfort to the indoor environment.
