One of the major differences between residential HVAC systems and commercial ones is that commercial systems are modular. One of the reasons for this is that it makes the systems easier to manufacture and transport; commercial HVAC systems must be large to supply most spaces with significant cooling and heating—even light commercial—and trying to build a single unit big enough would be too unwieldy.
However, modular systems are also a benefit to you as a business owner for a number of reasons that we’ll look at. For top quality work on light commercial air conditioning in Tampa, FL, whether it’s for installation, repair, or maintenance, call the experts at Ierna’s Heating & Cooling.

Why modular HVAC is good for your company
It’s the nature of businesses to expand if they are successful. Your company can go from a few rooms and a handful of employees to double the space and maybe three times the staff (and customers) in only a year… and it can be exponential over a decade. All of this can happen in the same workspace. In a home, a single air conditioner and heater will match a family until it grows too large so that it must move to a new home. For a business, you need to find a way to expand the cooling and heating without needing to relocate.
This is where the modular system is immensely helpful: you can increase the heating and cooling load of your HVAC systems by adding more packaged units onto the system. This isn’t something of which residential systems are capable. The add-on modules for commercial HVAC come in a range of sizes: 5-tons, 10-tons, 15-tons, 25-tons, up to 50-tons. There is a module size to fit your company’s expansion and comfort needs; you never need to worry about having to tear out the whole system to replace it with a larger one.
This also benefits you when the system begins to age. You don’t have to replace the entire HVAC system when it’s time to upgrade it; you can instead upgrade individual modules as needed, and only need minor disruptions to your work’s schedule. When it comes to repairs, you will also only need to worry about one module at a time going off-line.
