Natural Energy Heating Systems

heating repair in St. LouisAmerican Services Cooling and Heating installation in Overland knows that the utilization of sustainable resources for the installation of commercial heating systems is a viable option today.

Some energy sources that power these systems are solar, and  geothermal power. HVAC options like these systems are not only eco-friendly, but in the long run will prove more energy cost efficient than the traditional oil and gas option. Some industry experts agree that initial installation costs can be an expensive investment and generally reserved for larger businesses.

Commercial heating alternatives

Gas or oil water systems:
This system is similar to steam heating in concept, there is a water heating method, usually a boiler, then  pushed through radiators throughout the property. This system is somewhat inefficient because you must clear the air in the system when  the heat is engaged causing delays in heating ,and creating unnecessary energy costs.

Heat Pump alternatives:
Another efficient alternative method of heating a commercial building is the implementation of the heat pump. The technology is similar to how a refrigerator works. The process essentially extracts heat from cold air.  Consider how warm the coils on the back of a refrigerator gets, add a refrigerant, and subsequently pump the heat that was generated throughout the commercial property.  This is an
extremely efficient system as it requires no fuel source to function.

Some commercial heating selection tips:
HVAC professionals suggest don’t just add up the installation costs to determine if your system is truly worth a sizable investment but suggests calculating the first several years of ownership of your new commercial heating system to better establish its “cost” versus energy savings.

You can also offset these costs using high efficiency systems. These superior systems are rated with high annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) ratings and possess an Energy Star seal of approval and most generally are elgible for rebates. Finally you must consider the climate, A mild climate requires a different system than one with extreme temperatures during the winter and summer months.
