removing old commercial HVAC

Out with the old, in with the new…some relics are simply not worth clinging onto and you deserve some new technology heating your business

warning signsSigns You Need a New Commercial Air Conditioning System Installation

Unlike residential HVAC systems, which are smaller and easier to manage and maintain, chances are you, as a commercial property owner or maintenance technician, won’t be able to determine if you can repair a commercial AC unit or if it is better to remove the old unit and replace it.

Here are a few telltale signs that it is time to have your current air commercial air conditioning system replaced:

High Energy Bills

If you are like most commercial property or business owners, chances are your energy bills are beginning to skyrocket. The average electricity usage for common commercial and business devices is rising, and most business owners spend thousands of dollars each year on their air conditioning services alone.

Suppose your utility bills are rising, but you are not consuming any additional energy, or the numbers don’t add up. In that case, chances are it is time to replace your existing commercial air conditioning unit rather than opting for a potentially costly repair.

The Unit’s Age

On average, most well-maintained commercial HVAC and commercial air conditioning systems will last anywhere from 15 to 20 years. When commercial AC units become older, they not only require additional repairs and maintenance, they are not as energy efficient as they once were.

Suppose your existing commercial HVAC system is getting older, and you want to enjoy the perks that come with newer, more efficient commercial air conditioning equipment. In that case, it is time to consider an upgrade.

You Are Concerned with Your Property’s Air Quality

As a commercial business owner, your clients’ and staff’s health and welfare are a top priority. However, did you know that your older, commercial HVAC system can have a dramatically negative effect on your property’s indoor air quality?

If your staff and clients suffer from common health issues, from asthma to seasonal allergies, the air inside your structure could worsen their symptoms. At Universal Heating & Air, our EPA-certified technicians can help you choose the best commercial AC unit that can dramatically improve the air quality of your commercial business.

Several Major Components Are in Disrepair

It is common for a commercial AC unit to frequent repairs. These can also be costly repairs, especially if you are consistently replacing key components, including the evaporator coil or condenser.

If your HVAC system requires multiple repairs, and the combined cost of all AC repairs will be far more than the replacement value of the current unit, it is time to upgrade your commercial air conditioner.

Constant Short Cycling

Is your commercial air conditioning system constantly turning on and off, and you are not able to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the building? If so, chances are you are experiencing a common HVAC issue called “short cycling.” There are several common causes of short cycling, from something as simple as a blown fuse to a more difficult and complicated problem.

Unfortunately, if short cycling is a constant issue that is left unrepaired for several months, the wear and tear it can have on the system can be devastating. In most cases, if the cause of short cycling is expensive to repair and the HVAC system is much older, your technician will often recommend replacing the entire system.

different commercial hvac systems
There are a great many types of commercial HVAC’s out there. We have seen and worked with them all!

commercial hvac systemCommon Types of Commercial HVAC Systems

Not all air conditioners are created equally, and there are several key features on commercial HVAC units that must be present and are often not found on typical residential HVAC units, including:

  • Ventilation
  • Air filtration
  • Air humidification and dehumidification

Ready to upgrade your Los Angeles, CA, commercial air conditioner? Here are the most popular and common options available to our commercial clients:

Central Air Conditioner

A great option for smaller commercial properties, commercial central air conditioners work in the same way that residential units operate. The air is cooled and travels through ducts that distribute the air throughout the property.

This is often the most cost-effective option and requires less commercial air conditioning repair and maintenance. However, if you have a larger commercial property, it might not be the most efficient option.

Mini-Split, Ductless Systems

Another commercial air conditioning system that also resembles its residential counterpart, a mini-split system, is a single unit that is attached to the wall. The unit is split, with half being inside and half outside the structure. If you have a small commercial property in Los Angeles, such as a coffee house or a boutique, two to three mini-split air conditioning units could suffice.

This is a cost-effective option that also requires less regular commercial HVAC maintenance, as well.

vrf vent unit
VRF systems are more like a network of independent units rather than a single entity which can be useful for large businesses

Variable Refrigerant Flow System

If you own or operate a larger commercial building, your commercial HVAC technician might recommend a variable refrigerant, or VRF, system. This variety of air conditioning systems features one central outdoor unit connected to several smaller units spread throughout the building.

If you have ever relaxed in a hotel with air conditioning, there is a chance the structure utilized a VRF system.

A VRF system is a unique type of air conditioning equipment because it allows the user to control each particular unit.

Vapor Compression Chiller
The mighty “chiller”. There is no mistaking these units given their massive size and impact with commercial clients

Vapor Compression Chillers

“Chillers” are the largest type of commercial AC units and are typically rated by the ton. There are two main types of chillers: an air-cooler chiller and a water-cooler chiller. Both types of systems chill water that is then used to cool the building.

These types of industrial HVAC systems are reserved for very large commercial structures. These are the most expensive variety of commercial AC units to purchase and have installed, repaired, and maintained.

Because no two HVAS systems are alike, it’s tricky to estimate a timeline until we’ve personally inspected your project

time to repair hvac systemHow Long Does it Take to Completely Install a Commercial AC System?

The time it takes to have your commercial AC unit installed depends on several factors. For example, if you have the AC or HVAC unit installed on a new construction property, it will typically take less time because you do not have an existing unit removed.

The size of the building and the variety of AC system that is being put in will also impact the time it takes to complete the installation.

The crew at Universal Heating & Air will provide you with an approximate timeline, along with a free estimate of the cost of all their commercial services, including parts and labor.
