Commercial air conditioning units look ugly. You might not want to give up the amount of room that sizable HVAC units need, depending on the size of the building. Rooftop HVAC units are pre-packaged systems that are installed on rooftops and connect to the ductwork of a structure. Rooftop HVAC systems are more flexible and have more possibilities than other HVAC systems on the market, in addition to having reduced installation costs.
How Do Rooftop Units Work?
Rooftop units (RTUs) have existed since the turn of the 20th century. Since there wasn’t enough room between buildings to install air conditioners on the sides of the buildings, they were initially erected in urban districts.
RTUs can provide the building with cooling, heating, or both, and by adding a humidistat, they can also increase the humidity level there. Rooftop units are also referred to as package units because all of the coils, compressors, and fans are contained in one outside cabinet. Installing a Rooftop HVAC plant platform has its benefits in the long run as well as the short run.
Benefits of Commercial Rooftop HVAC plant platform.
Modular modules make rooftop HVAC systems. This implies that if you increase or change the space, you can add to it. In addition, you can arrange the modules over the roof if necessary, based on the heating and cooling load requirements of the building. When a building has numerous rooftop units, you can regulate the temperature and monitor the energy use in different rooms.
Less Noise Pollution
Even while many contemporary HVAC systems are quieter than their forerunners, they nonetheless produce audible noise. Commercial air conditioning units positioned on the roof are out of earshot, making the building appear calmer.
Vandalism and theft of individual components are a possibility for HVAC units on the ground floor. Rooftop systems take away the comforts that potential criminals would desire.
The land is a valuable resource. The entire heating and cooling system are contained within a rooftop unit. With this arrangement, you have more room for more appealing elements like landscaping, more parking, or potential building additions.
Reduce Dirt And Damage
HVAC systems located below ground are susceptible to harm from dirt, dust, organic debris, and litter. Rooftop units typically keep cleaner and safer from debris and unintentional damage due to their elevated placement.
Increased Energy Efficiency
Commercial rooftop HVAC systems already have energy-saving options or features that you may add to them to increase their efficiency. For instance, those with variable air volume controls conserve energy by matching fan speeds to airflow requirements.
When the outside temperature allows, energy-saving controls, such as dampers, use the outside air to cool a structure. By moving the heat and humidity in the supply airstream to the cooler, drier airstream in the exhaust, thermal wheels, also known as energy recovery wheels, reduce the strain on the cooling system during the summer. You can modify the functioning of the HVAC system in the building under seasonal variations and occupancy schedules by employing programmable thermostats.
Ease Of Maintenance
To eliminate mechanical issues, assure efficiency, and prevent unneeded wear and tear, commercial rooftop heating, and cooling devices need professional maintenance at least once a year. When rooftop HVAC units are present in a business structure, a technician has quick access to every module. The expert does not have to scour the entire site looking for specific units.
Additionally, he doesn’t have to go inside the structure to fix or maintain the machinery. Remember that you can require expert maintenance services more frequently if you don’t execute simple maintenance procedures on a monthly or quarterly basis (such as changing the filters, checking for leaks, or cleaning the fins).
