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.

Is A Central Air Unit Right For You?

Nicole Jacobs

Are you tired of sweating through the hot summer days with zero relief? If so, you should consider investing in an air conditioning system for your property. You can choose from two different types: window or central air units. Most people choose the central air because of how easy it is to use and the amount of space that it covers. Yet there are also some cons involved with choosing this type of AC unit. This is a list of the advantages and disadvantages of central air systems.


This is a list of advantages of installing a central air unit.


A central air unit is the best way to get a consistent temperature in your property. This is especially beneficial if you live in a climate that experiences hot temperatures all year long. The A/C system will keep the entire home nice and cool during the hottest days.


Central air systems are very convenient and easy to use. All you have to do is set the thermostat at the temperature that you want. The system will turn on and off throughout the day to keep the home at that temp. Some systems even have smartphone apps that allow you to adjust the temperature when you are not home.


There are also some disadvantages associated with this type of A/C system.


A central air conditioner costs a lot more than a window unit. If you are on a tight budget, this would not be the best option for you. You would do best to buy a few smaller window units and place them throughout the house.


The installation process for the central air units is a lot more complicated and complex than window units. If you are renting your property, you most likely would not be able to get a central air unit installed. The landlord would have to approve it first and even then, it wouldn't be feasible to put that amount of money into a property you don't own. Even if you own your property, you need to realize the amount of work that goes into installing ductwork and the rest of the central air system.


Should you decide that you want this type of air conditioning, you need to contact an HVAC installation service in your area. Call around and ask about rates for several businesses. Find the ones that have the best prices and go from there.
