Commercial HVAC services are as important as residential HVAC services here in Louisiana. Our summer days are long and hot, with a high amount of humidity thrown into the mix. It’s bad enough when we’re home, but most of us spend our days in a commercial space such as an office building or small business site. Commercial HVAC systems may have specific needs that should be met, such as the ability to run industrial refrigerators in restaurants. And if you own a business or manage an office space, you need to move quickly in the event your system runs into trouble.

We’ve reached the end of air conditioning season here in Louisiana, but with our mild winters, you can never be sure when you might need yours to function again. The cool days of late fall and early winter make an excellent time to take stock of your system and schedule repairs if necessary. The same holds true for commercial air conditioning systems, which have more complex needs than residential systems and which need a high-quality service to keep them maintained. Reliability in such services is supremely important for the health of your business.
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.

A commercial heating system contains a lot of different components, all of which, unfortunately, may fail someday. However, with proper care and maintenance, most commercial heating systems should last over a decade with little trouble provided they receive the proper care and maintenance. Part of this maintenance is scheduling regular visits from commercial specialists for a tune-up. But you should also take care of your system by paying attention to any signs that your commercial system is in trouble and by calling for repairs immediately when you spot a problem.
Your heating system sometimes alerts you to trouble with the various noises that failing parts make. Some parts will sound off when they’re in a state of disrepair, and while it may seem to be only a minor inconvenience in some cases, you should always call for repairs immediately.
- Humming – Even though your business’s heating system most likely runs on gas, there are many electrical components that must all be in top shape in order to operate. The fans in the furnace pull in indoor air in order to move it past a heat exchanger so that warm air can move through the vents in your home. The fan motor can run into a number of troubles due to a dirty filter or over-exhaustion. And when the motor suffers, you may hear a faint or obvious humming noise from the ducts or from the unit itself.
- Rumbling Noise – Chances are, the heating system in your office is most likely located pretty far away from where business actually takes place. Most larger businesses have packaged heating and air conditioning systems located right outside of the office or on the rooftop, so you may not be able to hear noises from the unit. However, if you happen to hear a low rumbling noise, it could mean that gas burners are dirty, resulting in inefficient heating.
- Banging – Loud banging or rattling noises could mean fan trouble. If a fan blade is loose, or if the fan motor is in trouble, you may hear a banging noise that echoes all the way through the ducts and into the building.
