From shops to supermarkets and multi-storey office spaces, the air conditioning needs of commercial properties are far more diverse than for residential installations, so knowing which air conditioning system to choose can be very confusing. Cowan Air is Melbourne’s leading choice for fast and effective industrial air conditioning service and repairs. Let’s explore the most common commercial air conditioning systems available to help you decide which type would be most suitable for your business.
Split System Air Conditioner
Highly affordable and easy to install, these systems consist of an indoor and outdoor unit and require no ductwork. They run quietly and can be used to both heat and cool a space. Available in a wide range of sizes and specifications to match your needs, they are effective for small spaces and ideal for smaller business such as retail stores, cafes, studios and server rooms.
Ducted Multi Split System
More complex and more expensive than single split systems, however these systems can heat and cool a larger space with ease. Ideal for medium sized commercial spaces such as bigger retail stores and restaurants, these systems require the installation of ductwork and consist of one central unit which is installed outside. With quiet operation and the ability to heat and cool different rooms and spaces within a business, this system a popular choice for many commercial fitouts.
Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) System
An industrial air conditioning system designed for larger commercial and industrial buildings such as factories, warehouses, hotels, hospitals and multi-level office buildings. This system uses a variable refrigerant and allows users to maintain individually zoned temperatures in each room and/or floor of a building. Ideal for large open plan areas and buildings with many individual rooms, VRV systems can cool and heat areas simultaneously helping to minimize energy consumption and delivering maximum energy savings.
Cassette Ceiling Mounted Air Conditioning Unit
A perfect solution to cool rooms where there are no available walls to mount a split system or where there is limited ceiling space for ductwork. Suitable for use in a wide range of applications such as showrooms, hospitality venues, fitness studios and small offices, these units are discreet and space saving, however they cool a wide area and are highly energy efficient. They are also sleek and stylish, making them an ideal choice for businesses where aesthetics and design are of high importance.
