Granbury HVAC company: Installing a new system in an old building

Granbury HVAC company: Installing a new system in an old building      

Business owners that take over older properties as their new store front are forced to decide how best to incorporate climate control. Unfortunately, unlike residential homes, older properties do not come fully equipped with an intricate web of H.V.A.C. duct-work that runs behind walls & under floors. It is much easier to install central air conditioning systems during the construction phase of any new project because once the structure is built designing an H.V.A.C. system without doing much damage to existing walls & floors is very difficult. Warehouses that have high ceilings are easier to work with as long as you don’t mind the galvanized steel hanging from the rafters & running on the outside of walls.

If you’re concerned about exposed duct work, then you’ll be limited on how you can retrofit your unit slightly. However, you may opt to install ductless mini split air conditioning units placed strategically throughout your facility. There are many advantages to using these types of units. For example, their small size & flexibility make them a great choice for smaller office spaces. The newer models are very pleasing to the eye & blend in well, as long as the rooms are painted white. The zoning capabilities are advantageous if you are interested in connecting four or more indoor handling units to one outdoor unit. You have the option of running the air conditioning in the rooms that are occupied & switch off the air in those that are not.

Like most H.V.A.C. systems, the efficiency of these systems largely depends upon how well the rooms are insulated. If the insulation is poor, cool air will escape easily. To solve this problem, have a contractor address your insulation needs before installing any climate control system.

Central air units are a wise choice if your business is an office space with drop ceilings & multiple rooms that need to be cooled. The best part about drop ceilings when installing the duct work is it can be hidden about the ceiling tiles. To help with saving money, Energy Star qualifications are highly recommended. For a manufacturer to have these qualifications, they must construct a highly efficient unit that has a S.E.E.R. , or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, rating of 13 or higher. S.E.E.R. is a performance rating for cooling output during a typical cooling season.
