Designing Heating and Cooling Systems in Large Buildings

Have you ever wondered what goes into a heating or air conditioning system for a large office building or another large building like a mall or a school? My name is Evelyn, and I am an HVAC architect. I design heating and air conditioning systems for large, corporate buildings. Making sure that a large building with many rooms or offices is efficiently heated and cooled is a very large job and is much more complicated than simply heating or cooling a home. This blog will educate the reader on how heating and cooling jobs this large are designed and completed.

Three Energy Efficient AC Options Without Conventional Central HVAC

Nicole Jacobs

If you need to have air conditioning installed for your home, you want to have an energy efficient solution. Conventional central HVAC systems can be good, but they are also costly to install and repair. Other options like ventilation, evaporative coolers and ductless AC systems cost less and may even be more efficient than central HVAC. Here are some of the alternatives that you may want to consider having installed for your new AC system:

1. Ductless AC Systems For Efficient And Affordable Cooling

Ductless AC systems can be a great way to add energy efficiency to the cooling of your home. These systems are like central HVAC but without the ductwork. This means that there are less materials and labor involved with their installation, which makes them more affordable. Since there are no ducts, they also have less energy loss than a ducted heating and cooling system. These systems can even be divided into zones like conventional HVAC systems.

2. Evaporative Cooling For Efficient Cooling In Dry Climates

Evaporative coolers are a type of cooling system that uses the evaporation of water to provide cooling. These systems work best in dry climates and are much more efficient than compressed gas cooling systems. They will require a little more maintenance than a conventional system, but they will cost a lot less to keep your home cool. There are even newer systems that are hybrids of conventional and evaporative systems that can provide your home with an efficient cooling system.

3. Cooling With Professionally Designed Ventilation Systems

One of the most efficient ways of cooling your home is to use ventilation. This can be something as simple as an attic fan that ventilates your entire home. You can also have professionally designed systems installed to circulate air from cool areas of your home like a basement in warmer areas on the upper levels. If you want to have a less conventional cooling solution, adding ventilation to your home is a great solution, especially if you have a large basement with a lot of cool air that can be delivered to the rest of your home.

These are some of the alternatives that you may want to consider using for your new AC. If you need to have a new air conditioner installed in your home, contact an HVAC service and ask them about installing one of these systems for the cooling needs of your home.
