Basic Aspects of Your Commercial HVAC Units

When it comes down to your commercial building’s HVAC units, it is vital to understand all the nooks and crannies of it.

When it comes down to your commercial building’s HVAC units, it is vital to understand all the nooks and crannies of it. Hopefully, you won’t ever have to actually deal with problems within your HVAC unit, but if you do, it’ll be useful to have a bit of knowledge of the essential components. While you will still probably have to call in the pros for repairs and the louver contractors from Hercules for protection, this guide will still help you see who has to be called and how quickly. Read on to learn more!

Heating Your HVAC: Your Furnace

Your furnace is the main heating system of your HVAC unit. Both residential and commercial buildings have furnaces, but for commercial buildings, as the furnace will be a lot more strong. The furnace uses all the energy to heat up the air before moving it throughout your entire facility. All of this is turned on by a pilot light. Once you mess with the temperature, the pilot light will start, setting off all the burners. The heat that is created by burners is then blown right through a heat exchanger before it is moved throughout your building by a blower motor. This process will keep happening until the desired temperature has been achieved, at which point, the system will turn off. If you own an electric furnace, it will work a bit differently. Instead of pushing a pilot light, electricity will pass through the heating elements to start. These heating units are then attached to resistance coils, which will lead to blown motors.

Air Conditioning Aspects

The cooling aspects and parts of your HVAC unit are more simply known as the air conditioning unit. In many businesses, this is crucial to the safety and well-being of your equipment and employees, especially if you work within a field with items that might be heat-sensitive. There are four primary aspects to your HVAC’s air conditioner, and these are the condenser, the compressor, the expansion device, and the evaporator. Both the cooling and the heating are pumped through your building with assistance from the heating pump. The heat pump will generally need either a water source, air source, or ground source to work properly.
