Single-Split System

The most popular option for small businesses and office spaces, the single-split HVAC system allows for the heating and cooling of different rooms. It contains an air conditioner unit, a furnace, and an evaporator. If one part breaks on the system, the other parts keep right on chugging.

Multi-Split System

A multi-split system uses one outdoor unit for up to nine outdoor units. This means that you'll have just one unit that is working, which can save a considerable amount of energy in the long run. A multi-split system also has heat pumps, which transfers the heated air to the cooler ones. This commercial HVAC system thus needs less installation space and keeps the outside of your business looking clean.

VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) or VRV (Variable Refrigerant Volume) System

This commercial HVAC system is common in larger buildings. It uses either a heat pump or a heat recovery system. A heat pump can cool or heat your air, while a heat recovery system both cools and heats at the same time. A heat recovery system is therefore employed in buildings with lots of smaller rooms, such as hotels. These commercial HVAC systems are extremely reliable and efficient, as well as easy to use.

Rooftop Units (RTU)

Rooftop units are self-contained commercial HVAC systems. These all-in-one solutions are perfect for smaller buildings and offices and are designed for flat roofs. They are also great at withstanding the elements.
