As a business owner you know how important it is to provide a comfortable environment for employees and customers alike. Employees who are comfortable experience higher rates of productivity and satisfaction with their jobs. Stores and restaurants that are kept at optimal temperatures are more inviting to customers and will be more successful. If your HVAC system breaks down or simply fails to control the temperature in your place of business, you need repair fast. Many people will be negatively affected by heating and cooling problems in a commercial setting. Aaspen HVAC Inc. will arrive quickly to diagnose and repair your air conditioner or furnace.

Commercial Air Conditioning Systems

Central Air: Central air conditioning recycles the indoor air and in most commercial applications, brings in outside air, cools it, and distributes it around your building. Often the furnace shares the same ductwork and is all part of the same central air system.

Split systems: Trane split systems consist of an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. Trane makes larger models for commercial use such as offices, schools, hotels, and industrial buildings. They are designed to provide efficient heat and air conditioning for large spaces.

Rooftop units: Trane rooftop units are ideal for large commercial buildings. The rooftop location for the outdoor unit is a space saver in cramped cities.

Ductless units: Fujitsu ductless units make it possible to control the temperature in one room or office at a time. A simple wall unit can be installed in a room and provide zoned air conditioning that is individually adjustable. The lack of ductwork makes installation quick and easy.

Efficient Heating Systems

Gas, oil, electric: Gas, oil, and electric heaters are the most common in terms of energy sources. Whether you have access to natural gas, have oil delivered, or use electricity for your heating system, most businesses use one of these energy sources for heat.

Forced air furnace: A forced air furnace creates heat using gas, oil, or electricity and then forces that warm air through the ducts and out of the vents to warm a building. This is a common heating system for commercial use.

Boilers: Buderus boilers are often used for commercial buildings because they are efficient for heating large spaces. Boilers heat water that is forced through pipes throughout a building to spread warmth.

Hydronic heat: Heating systems that create hydronic heat use heated water to warm up a building. Hot water flows through pipes in floors, walls, and ceilings spreading warmth.

Steam heat: Similar to hydronic heat, a steam heating system uses water to transport heat. But with steam heat, the water is heated to the point where it becomes steam, which is then pushed through pipes releasing warmth as it cools and condenses back into water.

Solar: Solar heat can be used in combination with other heating systems or as its own entity. Solar energy can heat liquid or air to warm a building. It is often used with boilers, radiant heat, and heat pumps.

Air to air heat pump: A heat pump uses electricity to move warmth between the outside air and the inside of a building. Rather than creating heat, heat pumps use less energy by taking advantage of the heat that is already in the air.

Geothermal heat pump: A geothermal heat pump also transfers heat, but its source of heat is the ground rather than the air. The ground offers more consistent temperatures than the air, making it work better in all weather conditions.

Air Filtration Options for Healthier Air

Stale air moves out and this air filtration system brings in fresh air and reheats it using the warmth that is already in your home without wasting energy.

Humidifiers: Winter air can be very dry causing all sorts of problems from dry skin and respiratory discomfort to static electricity. Humidifiers restore moisture to the air in even the driest seasons and climates.

Electronic air cleaner: Easily fitted onto central heating and air systems, an electronic air cleaner filters the air as it passes through your HVAC system. It removes particles and air pollutants, which improves indoor air quality and promotes a healthy work environment. A variable speed blower with an electronic air cleaner will ensure the most thorough air filtration possible.

Media filters: Used with HVAC systems, media filters also remove particles from the air such as dust, pollen, and other allergens that can be potentially harmful to breathe. Media filters can be used with any air filtration system and are usually located in the ductwork of a central air system.

Ultraviolet treatment: These air filtration systems use ultraviolet (UV) light to kill bacteria and viruses in the air. The UV light breaks down these microscopic and potentially harmful germs and removes them from the air. When used in the workplace, ultraviolet treatment can stop the spread of illness between workers.

Other Products Keep Your System Functioning

Thermostats: Programmable thermostats, also known as smart thermostats, can help you save a lot of energy if used properly. You can program a smart thermostat to adjust itself at certain times of the day. For example, when no one is in the office at night, the temperature can be automatically raised or lowered depending on the season, and will automatically change back during business hours.

Sensors: All thermostats have a temperature sensor, but other sensors can be useful as well. A humidity sensor will alert you if there is too much or too little moisture in the air. Air quality sensors, smoke sensors, and CO2 sensors/duct sensors alert you if there are any potential dangers in the air. Condensation sensors alert you to potential unwanted moisture. All of these precautionary measures are important to the safety of workers and the condition of a building.

Damper actuators: A building’s HVAC system needs to bring in outside air and also prevent the entry of unwanted outside air. Damper actuators control the movement of dampers for air intake and zoning purposes.

Duct zoning: In order to heat or cool certain areas of a building and not others, duct zoning is necessary. Dampers are opened and closed to seal off certain parts of the ductwork so that the air travels to the desired zone only.
