There’s no doubt about it – air conditioning has improved the lives of millions, and our society as we know it would change a lot without air conditioning. We breathe a sigh of relief coming into a cool building, away from the hot air outside. Our houses are air conditioned, as are our workspaces and public areas, but are all these areas air conditioned in the same way? Why does air conditioning get so much more complicated as we scale up?

The first (and most obvious) reason is that large commercial areas take up more space than your average home. This means your HVAC (Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning) unit must be more powerful to deal with larger volumes of hot air. The other, less obvious consequence of a larger commercial space is more bodies within that space. More people means more body heat being generated, which means the unit has to work even harder.

The consequence of a more powerful unit is that it is louder and noisier than a residential system. This presents interesting challenges for a business – how can it place the unit in a way that doesn’t impede traffic, create distracting noise or become prone to vandalism? The answer is right above you – on the roof! This means most commercial HVAC units are specially designed to cool buildings from the top-down, which created some interesting engineering challenges.

We hope our homes will be large enough to accommodate us for a long time; moving is a hassle, and it’s nice to grow into a space. Conversely, we hope our businesses expand beyond our wildest dreams and that we can’t fill the space we bought initially! Commercial HVAC units are designed in a modular fashion with these fluctuations in mind; should the needs of a business change, modules can be added and removed. Residential systems are fixed, and expansions may mean a new system.

Residences can afford to have less complex mechanisms, even if it takes up more space; most residential systems are split between an outdoor compressor and an indoor evaporator. This makes the systems easier to repair than commercial systems, which are almost exclusively single unit. Commercial systems are also more likely to have multiple thermometers, and to be able to selectively cool areas of a building; all in all, they’re much more complex!

All in all, while commercial air conditioning is much more complicated than residential, it’s important to always trust the professionals, either way! Sophistication aside, a badly installed residential unit can cause uncomfortable temperatures and humidity in your home, not to mention the increased electricity cost!

We've been using Classic Air Conditioning & Heating Services for the past five years to include Installation of new units (flawless by the way), bi-annual check-ups that are scheduled and carried out without a second thought on my part, and in emergencies (backed up drain in the bathroom with a response time in under 24 hours to troubleshoot the problem). Their technicians are master's at their craft, personable, and cut to the chase on his service calls. I never feel like I'm being given the run around or a sales pitch with this company. Today, Mitchell Wesch went above and beyond walking us through what was happening and provided a multitude of options and expected timelines for future repairs. Once again, a great example of exemplary customer service. He was able to troubleshoot the problem with zero delay. We're ready for the Texas summer, and are already looking forward to the next scheduled service call. Thank you Classic Services for keeping our home healthy and happy.

Theresa did an amazing job! She informed me about everything she was doing and took extra pictures so I could have them for my record. She was quick but still answered all my questions. She definitely saved the day when my condensor froze over on the coldest day of the year, leaving my family in the cold. She was out at my house within the hour and had everything fixed in minutes.
