4 different types of the commercial heat pump
If you are preparing to install a new or replacement commercial heating system, there are several important factors to keep in mind. Cost is always important, but savvy business owners will consider the cost of use and repair in addition to the installation price tag. Commercial Heating Systems are more complex and expensive that those for residential usage. Because these units have different considerations and cover more square footage, it’s in your best interests to understand the different types of systems available. The time and expense involved in installing a new or replacement commercial heating system warrants the research required to find the right product for your commercial needs. Here are common types of commercial heating systems available for purchase and installation.
Natural Energy Systems
Installing commercial heating systems using sustainable resources is an option. These systems employ energy sources such as solar and geothermal power. Systems using sustainable resources, such as solar geothermal power, are a relatively new option in the United States.
Oil and Gas Steam Heating
Oil and gas steam heating is one of the oldest types of commercial heating systems. The units use fossil fuels to boil, condense and then pass steam through pipes to heat a building.
Gas or Oil Water Systems
Water systems are also less than ideal from an efficiency perspective. One reason for this is that you have to clear the air in the system each time the heat is engaged, causing delays in heating and inefficiencies.
Commercial heat pumps are an efficient alternative. The process used by these systems is similar to technology used in refrigerators as they extract heat from cold air then use a refrigerant and subsequently pump generated heat throughout the property. Heat pumps do not require fossil fuels to function, so they are also kinder to the environme
