Understanding HVAC Systems

Welcome to my blog! My name is Darren. My friends say that I am boring because I love the HVAC system in my home. I am not an HVAC professional, I just love the gentle hum of my air conditioning system as it gently brings the air in my home to the perfect temperature. When I was a kid, my family couldn't afford air conditioning so I spent many summers sweating away and feeling miserable. I vowed to myself then that when I grew up, I would have the best HVAC system money could buy. I hope you find my HVAC blog useful.

3 Questions You Must Ask When Choosing The Right Size Of Commercial Refrigeration Units


It's a well-known fact that commercial refrigeration systems do not come cheap. To get value for your money, you want to ensure that you get not only the top brand and right type of commercial refrigeration, but also the right size. One size definitely does not fit all.

Whether you are looking to buy walk-in commercial refrigeration units or their reach-in counterparts, you will need to take several factors into consideration when choosing the size of the units. Among these considerations include the following:

1. How Much Storage Space Do You Actually Need

What and how much of it will you be keeping in the refrigeration units. After making a list of all the items that you will be keeping in the units, gauging how much room they will take up shouldn't be too difficult to do.

It's always a good idea to have just a little extra space in your freezer or cooler. Again, instead of focusing on just your present needs, you should also consider how much room you may need in the near future. As your business grows, the supplies you keep in refrigeration will also increase.

2. How Much Available Space Do You Have For Set Up?

The refrigeration units will have to go somewhere, and you will definitely have to choose units that will fit into the space that you have available. If the new refrigeration units take up too much space, the efficiency of your operations may end up being affected because there won't be enough space left for employees and other equipment to move around freely.

3. What is Your Budget?

With commercial refrigeration, bigger is generally more expensive. Your working budget will determine what you can afford. If you have a lot of supplies, make sure you have enough space to accommodate the unit. Then, see what money you are able to spend and choose the right fridge for your needs.

Commercial refrigeration comes in a wide range of sizes. Too big a size, and you will be spending a lot of money cooling unutilized spaces in addition to dealing with cramped areas. Again, choose too small, and there won't be enough space for all your supplies, resulting in waste when they go bad.

If you are unsure of which size is best for your business, then you can speak with a professional HVAC contractor who will also help with the installation, servicing and repair of your commercial refrigeration.
