Commercial HVAC Units in the Yale Area

Businesses in Sandusky and Capac are as unique as the entrepreneurs who started them. This means that the heating and AC needs of every company are best met through a personalized comfort plan. Crafting the perfect solution requires us to be knowledgeable in a wide array of commercial HVAC equipment types, including:

Packaged Systems:

Packaged units—as the name implies—bundle together the condenser, fan coil, evaporator, thermostat, and compressor. This allows for more compact heating and AC and is ideal for buildings without the square footage for separate units. This single unit can cool and heat, eliminating the need for separate equipment.

Packaged systems are popular in hotels, condos, and senior homes. This is because their design allows for economical room-by-room temperature control.

Whether you want to replace every packaged terminal in the building or just need someone to deal with a troubled block, our commercial HVAC experts are ready and able to assist. Give (810) 387-4452 a call to schedule service in Capac, Sandusky, or Yale.

Split Systems:

For areas bigger than single rooms, residential building in Yale will typically opt for a split system. Split systems are connected to a building’s existing ductwork. They also work well for small offices, restaurants, and individual storefronts. Each area comes with its own thermostat or can be controlled through a central system.

The main issue with these systems? Each space you want controlled needs its own HVAC unit. This clutters your roof or the outside of your building. If excessive, it can turn even the most attractive building into an eyesore. You can zone these systems, but the cost is normally prohibitive.

Rooftop (RTU) Systems:

An RTU or rooftop unit is a large packaged unit on the roof of your building. They are equipped with weather resistant housings to protect all major opponents. They are also compact and bring condenser, air handler, compressor, evaporator, and blower into one package. They arrive fully assembled from the factory. Some RTUs only cool while some units can both heat and cool.

In terms of limitation, most are based on architecture. These units lose effectiveness if required to heat or cool a building taller than 10 stories. Their structure also requires a flat roof for safe and stable installation. If you want to schedule an RTU repair or replacement, give (810) 387-4452 a call. We’ve been servicing these supersized units in Yale since 2003.

VRF (Ductless) Systems:

Relatively new to America—but fairly popular in Europe—VRF systems are ductless. They rely on heat recovery systems and heat pumps to circulate refrigerant from a central outdoor unit throughout the building. Their segmented setup also allows them to transfer heated air to areas that need it while also cooling other areas. The rate at which this refrigerant is distributed determines the temperature of an area. These systems are quiet and take up very little real estate in your building. Their lack of ductwork and compact size also make them easy to install. When compared to traditional ducted systems, VRFs are 30% more efficient than ductless systems
