The Difference Between Commercial and Residential HVAC
A residential unit is typically placed either in the backyard or against the side of a house. It is generally out of the way of the occupants of the home, but still easy to access and service. A large commercial HVAC system is typically placed on the roof of a building. Several reasons exist for placing a commercial HVAC system on a building’s roof instead of at ground level:
The size of the unit makes it difficult to place in or around a building without taking up too much usable space. The roof typically has a large amount of space that isn’t being used. Commercial units are significantly louder than their residential counterparts. Placing the unit on the roof avoids the problem of noise pollution so that the unit doesn’t disturb the occupants of a building. The roof offers easy access for maintenance and repairs without disturbing those who are using the building.
Since commercial buildings tend to have much foot traffic around them, placing a commercial HVAC system on the roof protects it from potential vandalism or accidental damage.
