HVAC commissioning is an ordered process that’s meant to verify that the installation of your commercial HVAC system is operating exactly the way the designer intended. With the increased popularity of the LEED rating system, HVAC commissioning has become recognized as an important process by heating and air contractors that’s needed for the construction, operation and maintenance of commercial HVAC systems.
The Three Types of HVAC Commissioning
- Commissioning. This involves the testing of brand-new HVAC installations within the building to see if they meet the designer’s and owner’s specifications.
- Recommissioning. As the name suggests, this involves testing an HVAC system that was commissioned in the past to check if it’s still performing efficiently. This process usually involves repairs and adjustments done by your AC contractor to ensure that your system is up to standard.
- Retro-commissioning. This involves testing an existing HVAC system, usually in an older building, that was repaired and upgraded rather than replaced.
The Benefits of Commissioning a Commercial HVAC System
Even though commissioning a commercial HVAC system is considered very important, unfortunately it’s still often overlooked. Commissioning your HVAC system ensures that it meets all the standards, as well as green building, state and national codes for full efficiency.
Commissioning your HVAC system ensures that you have maximum energy efficiency, which is crucial, especially in a commercial setting. If an HVAC system isn’t commissioned, there’s really no proof that your system will work the way the designer and owner intended.
