Contractors Can Improve Your Home

Hello! I would like to give you the warmest welcome to my blog. My name is Pete and last year, I decided to carry out some home improvements. Somewhat foolishly, I decided to try and carry out the work myself. As you can imagine, it was a bit of a disaster as I do not have many skills. Thankfully, I have a friend who works in the construction and contracting service. He called in some of his friends who were able to come in and fix up the mess I had made. I am really pleased with the results so I thought I would write about it here.

Types of Commercial Air-Conditioning Units

by Regina Barnett

Commercial air conditioning units are more complex and larger in size than residential units. A few examples of commercial air conditioners include:

Under ceiling units

These are also known as split systems, and have an under ceiling unit and an outdoor unit. The indoor ceiling unit distributes air into the rooms. This split unit is suitable for instances when your budget is tight and ceiling height can allow for proper installation. It is cost-effective and allows for easy cleaning of air filters. They are suitable for classrooms, server rooms and retail stores.

Concealed ducted systems

Ducted AC units work to cool your business property through interconnected ducts. With a ducted AC, only the grilles are visible. It has a unit installed in the roof of the property or in the ceiling, and from this fan unit there are networks of ducts that run to different floors. The ducted system then distributes air through the ducts or vents. The ducted AC has a thermostat that allows the different floors to control the temperature at their convenience. Ducted AC units are convenient for offices with stationary workstations, due to the positioning of air vents. With a ducted AC system, you can cool several offices with one unit and have different temperature zones. It has simple installation and offers a quiet way of cooling a room.

Rooftop packaged units

This type of unit provides air conditioning in one unit. They can be used for light and large applications and are suitable for retail or industrial buildings. This unit connects to a duct system that circulates cool or warm air through a building and takes it back to the rooftop unit. This unit draws in outside air and mixes it with the air present in the building to ensure a fresh supply of air. This unit offers the convenience of a thermostat to control the temperature. However, this AC unit is exposed to the elements, so a little extra care and maintenance is necessary.

Floor standing unit

This air conditioning unit stands inside a room. It consists of two parts: a cooling unit and condenser unit. Floor standing units have the advantage of temperature zoning, depending on the room they are located in. While the sound of the indoor unit can be heard, it is fairly low. The outdoor unit, however, has a high sound level. Some floor-standing units even have an auto-restart feature that will back-up temperature settings in the event of a power outage.
