Reliable heating and cooling in an industrial setting is not only important for the comfort of employees, it is crucial to the overall quality of a product in warehouse settings. Capacity, efficiency, and safety should be the driving force in your heating and air component decision.
Industrial heating and air is often complicated because of the size of a facility and of the safety requirements that the HVAC system must meet. For example, electrical rooms filled with large power supplies and VFD controls give off high heat and require cooling to keep the plants running.
What To Consider When Choosing an HVAC System
- One of the main things to consider when upgrading industrial heating and air components is where they are going to be housed. Some equipment and machinery may need to be operated at certain temperatures.
- Many commercial and industrial buildings opt for the rooftop ventilation systems to save room and for easy access. However, separated units are also an option.
- Capacity requirements should also be considered. Unit requirements are based on application and potential available sources. For example, gas is required for direct fired or indirect units. Hydronic is another option for hot water, steam, or glycol. Cooling choices can range from evaporative or chilled water, electric, and more.
- Selecting the proper industrial HVAC system is one of the most important decisions your company will make. If the wrong model is installed, you might be paying exorbitantly high utility bills while creating an unsafe work environment and risking damage to your equipment and products.
