The traditional way for commercial buildings to be furnished with conditioned air is with packaged units, which are often located on the roof. However, they’re not your only option. Many companies, particularly local restaurants and bars, use ductless, mini-split heat pumps that are popular for homes. In this article, The Ice-Man discusses the reasons why ductless HVAC units may be your best choice for commercial heating and cooling services.
Heating and cooling. All ductless mini-split systems are heat pumps. This means that your indoor space will remain safe and comfortable for guests year-round, as heat pumps provide sufficient cooling during the hot, humid summer months and the right level of heating throughout cold, frosty winters.
Better control. A ductless mini-split system operates through a series of individual blowers mounted in different areas of the commercial building. All of these connect back to a single outdoor unit. This allows you to shut down cooling in places within the workspace that don’t require it, saving money that a central AC would otherwise waste. Your employees can also adjust the temperature in an area according to their comfort needs without affecting the rest of the building’s indoor air.
Less energy loss. It’s not uncommon to encounter air leaks in the ductwork. Having a ductless mini-split system eliminates this possibility, making your HVAC system more efficient and your utility bills significantly lower.
Improved indoor air quality. Ducts collect dirt, dust and other contaminants over time. If these particles end up getting blown into the house and entering your indoor air, they can lead to discomfort and health issues such as asthma and allergy symptoms.
