“Are Rooftop Units Right for My Business?”

rooftop-units-on-top-of-commercial-buildingAs summer temperatures stand steady, you’re likely focused on a number of things… running your business or managing your commercial space, ensuring your customers, employees, and/or tenants are happy, and of course, making sure your building is comfortable.

Wait, what’s that? You haven’t been thinking about the comfort of your business? It’s not something that’s typically at the top of mind for business owners or manager, so we get it—but it is important. An uncomfortable commercial environment can lead to a variety of problems, not the least of which is a severe business interruption. To achieve a comfortable environment in your commercial space, you need the right mix of indoor air and HVAC products and services—and this can start with a rooftop unit HVAC system.

What Is a Rooftop Unit?

A common recommendation for commercial HVAC solutions, rooftop units are comprised of multiple modular units placed on top of your business or commercial space. It might seem counterintuitive to have your air conditioner on top of your building, where it is exposed to the elements.

However, commercial rooftop units are designed to handle the blazing hot heat and anything else that comes its way. Additionally, they provide a number of tangible benefits, such as:

Easy Access

Can you imagine being in the middle of a busy day at work, or busy managing an aspect of your commercial space, only to have an HVAC repair technician banging through your business to handle your AC problems? Fortunately, rooftop units eliminate this problem altogether.

Our professional and highly trained technicians are able to access these systems and work on them without interrupting your business at all, allowing you to continue business as usual, while getting the peace of mind that your AC problem is being resolved in the process. Rooftop access also means that new units or other important equipment can be moved in and out without disrupting your business space.

Cooling Power Flexibility

This is a big benefit to modular AC units—you’re able to increase or decrease your cooling power. This is advantageous if you have changing needs for the existing commercial space, or if you need to accommodate the needs of a new business or office taking up residence within your commercial space. We will simply install a new modular unit to the existing system (or remove one, if necessary).

The rooftop of your commercial space is the best place for this to all happen, since it’s easier to add and subtract units without the need to move through the business space itself, and you don’t have to worry about making any landscaping changes surrounding your commercial space in order to accommodate these systems, either.

Better Use of Space

Whatever kind of commercial space you manage or business you run, everyone wants to be able to make efficient use of it—using it for workstations, showrooms, offices, or even tenants.

If you have to add on a cooling system either surrounding your property or inside the building, then you are forced to utilize some of the space you need, in order to accommodate your cooling system. The roof, however, allows you to have the system setup in an unused space, therefore eliminating the problem.
