Preparing for My Dream Home

My husband and I have spent a lot of time consulting with an architect. After living in our cramped, starter home for the past 11 years, we were finally ready to make some needed changes to it. We have added an extra 600 square feet of space onto our house. Before the construction began, we finalized the plans for our new heating and air conditioning unit with our HVAC contractor. Because our home was going to be substantially bigger than it is now, we purchased a larger HVAC system. We also installed a new, digital thermostat inside my home. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best types of HVAC units to buy for mid-size homes. Enjoy!

Differences Between Commercial And Residential Air Conditioning Installations

by Rita Richardson

As someone who owns both a home and a commercial property, you might have experience with things like having an air conditioning system installed in your home. However, it might be time for you to install an air conditioning unit on your commercial property for the first time. Since you have experience with having this done in the home, you might assume that the experience will be quite similar when you have it done on your commercial property. Although there will probably be some similarities, there will probably be some differences as well. If you're curious about what these differences might be, you might be interested in checking out the list below.

You May Need to Hire a Different Company

There might already be an HVAC installation and repair service that you like to use when you need help with HVAC-related matters in your home. However, you might not be able to count on them to help you with installing an air conditioning system on your commercial property. This is because there are some differences between residential and commercial air conditioning installations, and not all HVAC technicians know how to perform both types of installations. You will need to find an HVAC service that offers commercial services to help with your air conditioning installation this time around.

They're Often More Expensive

First of all, you should know that commercial air conditioning units are often bigger and more powerful than residential units. This is because they often have a much bigger job to do. Therefore, they are often a bit more expensive. A good air conditioning installer can help you find an option that suits your budget while being suitable for commercial use, however. They should also let you know how much your unit and installation will be in advance, and they might let you know about rebates, financing options, and more to make things more affordable.

You'll Need to Be Prepared for Business Impacts

When having an air conditioning unit installed in your home, you only have to worry about the installation affecting your family. When you're running a business, however, you have to think about how your business might be impacted by installation, and you have to do what you can to minimize these impacts. Luckily, your installer can likely help with this, such as by offering flexible scheduling and doing what they can to work quietly and quickly during the installation process.
