Choosing The Best Commercial Air Conditioning System For Your Business


The control and maintenance of your air conditioning is an important aspect to any business. Whether you own a shop or manage a large building or office space, the comfort of your customers and employees is critical to making sales or having a productive and efficient workforce.


Selecting the right commercial air conditioning system for your business isn’t a decision to take lightly or rush into. An air conditioner is an investment, and you want to make sure you get it right the first time. There are a lot of models to choose from, and each is designed to meet specific purposes. Here are a few of the considerations you should keep in mind when shopping around.

The size of your business

One of the biggest factors influencing your decision will be the dimensions of your business. If your office or business is situated in a small building, for instance, you won’t need a large air conditioning system, and a small wall. If, on the other hand, your business is located in large building with high ceilings, or if you occupy a building with cubicles and a large workforce, you may need a larger system such as a rooftop unit to accommodate.


With larger workplaces come a range of other factors as well, such as the hours of operation. Does the business require a system that can handle working through day and night and alternate between heating and cooling? Are there computers and servers or other equipment running constantly that can heat up the space? Take these variables into consideration when you’re making your decision. 

Weather conditions

Of course the climate your business operates in will also be a deciding factor in your decision. A business operating from central Australia is going to have very different air conditioning needs to one located in Melbourne’s CBD where the weather can change in a flash and often drastically. Speaking to an air conditioning consultant will help you determine the best type of system for your location.

Commercial Air Conditioning System Differences

Every business is different, and so is every type of air conditioner, designed to meet specific requirements. Window and through-the-wall models along with PTAC systems are ideal for smaller offices where a lot of power isn’t needed. Larger offices that occupy entire floors, or retail, warehouse and showroom spaces will obviously benefit best from duct air conditioning systems in order to best manage the wide space.
