Heating, Ventilation, and Cooling systems, otherwise known as HVAC systems, are a vital part of any modern commercial building. The job of an HVAC system is to keep temperatures comfortable (usually around 72 degrees), humidity consistent (between 40-60%), and indoor air quality high.

There are many different types of commercial HVAC systems; however, in general, these systems operate the same:

An AC unit lowers the temperature by passing air through refrigerant or water-cooled systems, removing excess moisture from the air in the process. Heating systems work exactly  the opposite; air passes through systems that heat the air using water, radiator coils, or gas.

Ventilation systems keep the air clean by circulating air with fans and passing air through filtration systems.

The Different Types Of HVAC Systems

If you’ve considered replacing your buildings’ HVAC system, you’ll know that there are an overwhelming number of combinations of different types of systems. While this is true, all of these various types fall into three main categories:

  • The Single Split System

This system is the most affordable of HVAC system. Are commonly used in smaller commercial buildings and residences. This system allows for individual control of each space. The system includes air conditioners that pass air by refrigerant coils above a furnace or  in an air handler. One system  circulates the air via ducts. The disadvantage of a single split system is that for each space controlled separately, you’ll need an outdoor unit.

  • The Multi- Mini Split System

Multi- mini split systems operate likewise to a single split system, but is much more energy-efficient and has a much smaller outdoor footprint. Multi-split systems allow you to connect up to 9 indoor units to one outdoor unit. The system also includes heat sensors that detect temperature changes, adjust as needed, and consume far less energy. 

Furthermore, the heat pump in this system is designed to move air in a way that works with the natural flow of warm air into cool areas, saving money and energy. The disadvantage of these systems is that they require more installation time, 

  • The VRF (variable refrigerant flow) or VRV (variable refrigerant volume) System

These systems are preferred for larger mixed-use type buildings, such as office buildings or hotels. VRF systems can provide heating and cooling to different areas at once, using warm air from areas of the building and delivering it to where heat is required. This is especially beneficial for buildings with lots of smaller rooms. Heat pump VRF systems provide either heat or cooling and are best for larger open areas
