Living in Los Angeles can get uncomfortable, especially during the summer when the temperatures can exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit. However, although most people associate Los Angeles with sun and warmth, the temperatures can drop below freezing during the winter.

Properly maintaining your commercial HVAC system is critical for both the comfort of your clients and staff and increasing the lifespan of your Los Angeles commercial AC and heating unit.

Commercial air conditioners are substantially larger than their residential counterparts

home and office ac iconHow Commercial AC Differs from Residential

There are several critical differences between your commercial HVAC system, and the AC unit or heater in your home, including:

Size of the equipment. Typically, commercial heating and air conditioning units are much larger. This is simply because the square footage of commercial properties is more extensive, meaning the heating units and AC units must maintain the temperature of a much larger structure.

Equipment placement. Most residential AC condensers are installed on the ground, particularly on the side of the house. A commercial air conditioning unit is installed on the roof. The roof is the safer option and an excellent choice for customers concerned about the noise associated with the much larger heating or air conditioning system.

Drainage. In addition to a more complex duct system, the drainage system on a commercial HVAC unit is much more significant to accommodate the additional evaporation from the larger structure.

Costs. The cost to install standard residential HVAC systems is between $4,000 – $9,000. Los Angeles commercial AC and commercial heating systems can cost between $7,000 – $35,000.

The installation of a commercial HVAC system requires specialized tools and knowledge, and should always be left to a certified, experienced Los Angeles commercial HVAC services professional.

Commercial HVACs come in a range of sizes, from residential sized units to behemoths like these

commercial air ventTypes of Commercial Air Conditioners

Chances are, your Los Angeles, CA, home or apartment is fitted with a central air conditioning and heating system or mini-split, ductless system. In addition to industrial single mini-split and central air conditioning and heating systems, which work well in smaller buildings and commercial properties, there are several other types of commercial HVAC systems, including:

Multi-Split Systems

This type of system, which is popular in smaller and mid-size commercial properties, features multiple indoor units that are connected to one or two large outdoor units through a system of ductwork.

Suppose you manage or own a hotel, office space, or commercial property with several smaller units. In that case, it is an excellent option because you can install an inverter, which allows each indoor unit to independently control the temperature of the air conditioning or heating units.

VRF or VRV Systems

A more powerful system that is adequate for larger commercial businesses and properties, a variable refrigerant flow or variable refrigerant volume, VRF and VRV, utilizes a heat recovery system or heat pump to either pump cooled or heated air throughout the property.

Be aware that this is a more extensive system and is more expensive to install and repair. However, if you have a larger commercial property, your HVAC company might recommend this system to handle your heating and air conditioning needs.

choosing your hvacWhy Choosing the Right AC System is Critical

In addition to ensuring your company chooses the ideal HVAC system to cool or heat your property adequately, there are other reasons why you need to choose the perfect HVAC system for your business.

Energy Efficiency

In addition to the size of the unit, the energy efficiency will directly impact the HVAC system’s cost—specifically, the unit’s SEER and AFUE ratings.

SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, accurately measures the efficiency of a commercial or residential AC unit. It is based on the system’s output for an average cooling season divided by the average total energy used. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the unit is.

The AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, ratings are based on the average fuel or energy required to run the unit. You want to choose a Los Angeles commercial HVAC unit with the highest AFUE rating for your budget.


There are several different control systems for your Los Angeles, CA, commercial HVAC system at various price points. You can utilize a simple thermostat system, similar to residential HVAC controls, or a more high-tech Direct Digital Controls, or DDC, system. This system is often more energy efficient but more expensive.

Noise Level

If you live in a congested urban area, which chances are if you live in Los Angeles, CA, this is the scenario, you want a commercial heating and air conditioning system that is as quiet as possible. Installing the main outdoor unit on the roof can also help reduce noise.
