Commercial HVAC Services in Colorado Springs

Commercial HVAC versus Residential HVAC

In addition to residential heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, we can handle all your commercial HVAC needs. Commercial HVAC systems are quite complex and differ from residential systems in various ways. Due to the complexities of commercial heating and air conditioning, our team at Elevation Mechanical highly recommends that you enlist the help of professionals to be sure that your systems are properly treated and taken care of.

Below are some of the ways that commercial and residential HVAC differ:

  • Size: Commercial heating and cooling systems are substantially larger than residential systems. Since they are expected to regulate temperature in much larger spaces than residential areas, the systems themselves need to be larger.
  • Placement: Due to the space HVAC units take up and the level of noise they emit, commercial heating and cooling systems are generally placed either on the roof of the building or in swamp coolers.
  • Structure: The structure of commercial heating and cooling systems is much more complex than residential systems due to the nature of their use. Depending on the size of the space being heated and cooled, the number of occupants, and the materials stored within the building, the systems need to be adjustable to accommodate these factors.
  • Drainage: In order to prevent flooding, these large heating/AC systems need multiple draining pipes and pans for excess water.
  • Mechanism: Whereas residential systems are standalone, commercial systems are modular and all parts are kept in the same area, making modifications easier.
  • Equipment: Commercial heating/air conditioning equipment is significantly larger than residential.
  • Maintenance cost: Due to the size and complexities of commercial systems, maintenance is more expensive than residential systems.
