Sometimes it’s difficult for business owners to imagine running any type of company, facility, or establishment in a building without ductwork. In fact, exposed ducts have become one of the standard design looks for many types of commercial buildings.
The development of advanced, energy-efficient ductless HVAC systems (also known as ductless mini split systems or ductless mini split heat pumps) has created a new paradigm for commercial heating and cooling. A ductless system still has parts in common with standard commercial heat pumps and ACs, such as an outdoor compressor (often housed up on the roof of the building). But instead of using a massive blower to push air from the compressor into the building’s ductwork, the compressor attaches to a series of smaller air handlers placed in zones around the facility, each capable of conditioning the air with the refrigerant sent from the compressor and blowing it directly into the zones.
How can this type of system benefit a business? Much of it depends on the business, and not all will find ductless HVAC beneficial. We’ll go over the main advantages of commercial ductless systems to help you understand how you might use one for your commercial heating and commercial air conditioning in Elk Grove Village, IL.
