Important Differences between Residential and Commercial HVAC Systems

In many ways, the HVAC systems that keep homes and businesses comfortable throughout the year, providing cool temperatures for summer and warm interiors for winter, operate the same way. The majority of commercial HVAC systems are heat pumps that work through the circulation of refrigerant through two sets of coils, and this is identical to the way that a heat pump installed for a home works.

However, there are some important differences between the two, and they are one of the reasons that you must always rely on HVAC technicians who are experienced with working on commercial comfort systems whenever you need to have work done for your business.

Where residential and commercial HVAC differ

Although there are a number of differences we could list that separate the heating and cooling systems for a business space from those for a home (such as size), there are two key ones that make a major difference in how they are installed and serviced:

  • Packaged units: Most commercial HVAC systems are what is known as “packaged units,” i.e. they do not use separate indoor and outdoor units the way that most home air conditioners and heat pumps do. Instead, they house both coils, as well as the compressor, engines, and fans in a single unit, which is usually placed on the roof. This configuration requires that specialists handle any repairs and maintenance the system may need.
  • Modular units: Commercial systems are modular; they can have new condensers and blowers added onto them to increase heating and cooling power. This is helpful for companies that wish to expand. Residential systems must be completely replaced if the homeowner wishes to increase heating and cooling power.
