HVACWe are back at the topic of HVAC and what and how to choose your next commercial heating and cooling system for your business in St Louis MO.  We already talked about the dealer you choose being one with a good, or even great reputation.  Make sure the brand you buy is backed by the dealer you choose that you already have decided is trustworthy.

How do you know what size to buy?  “Most dealers GUESS. That doesn’t do you any good. Most existing equipment is too large. In the ‘old’ days, the thought was bigger is better.”  The problem, according to experts in the commercial HVAC industry, such as your Bridgeton HVAC business near St Louis City, is that the big furnaces, when cycling constantly, are not the least bit efficient, nor do they deliver a proper and even level of comfort.  In fact, this bigger is better mentality it downright expensive in the end and for little benefit.  The same thing goes with big AC units.  The constant on and off cycling is truly very inefficient, especially when they don’t remove moisture in a competent fashion because they are too big for the space.  They also fail to cool evenly over a smaller area.  The only way to really know the size you need is by surveying the space that the AC or furnace will be responsible for heating and cooling.  The walls and windows should be accounted for as well, according to your American Services experts.  Anyone trying to install a commercial HVAC system for you without surveying first is not doing it right.

The level of efficiency you should shoot for when buying an HVAC system for your home or business can be rather confusing since it depends on a lot of factors that must first be considered.  Here is what one online article says regarding the subject, “It depends upon local fuel rates and how long you are going to be in the house. In many climates, standard (much higher than you have now) efficiency furnace & air conditioners are all you need. The extra for a super efficient A/C or 90% efficient furnace won’t pay you back in utility savings in the near future.”  If in extreme climates or with high fuel rates they might be worth your investment.
