Air Conditioning for Industrial Settings

Traditionally, air conditioning for industrial settings is not built-in

This is because large machinery generates heat while working and commercial air conditioning units have to work double to ensure cooling in these industrial settings.

Air conditioning for industrial settings are more commonly portable cooling units as they are pushed around by staff to ensure sectional cooling.  However, temperature-sensitive industries dealing with perishables, electronic components, etc. need integrated ventilation and cooling systems along with humidity control units to ensure that manufacturing standards are met.

Requirements of HVAC commercial air conditioning for industrial settings 

Now, almost all modern day air conditioning for industrial settings as well as other settings are air conditioning systems that are split systems or ductless systems that are very efficient. The cooling grid, fans and compressors are located outside the building in a remote location and the cooled air is conducted to the facility through ducts. Almost all central cooling units like these have thermostats for industrial settings and staff rooms.

Temperature of the entire commercial air conditioning system and of industrial settings and staff rooms can also be controlled. Top-of-the-line systems now use computer routing systems that will shut down cooling in unoccupied industrial settings and staff rooms and divert the air to frequented or machinery-occupied areas. The size and capacity of industrial cooling units will depend on the size of industrial settings and staff rooms. Ideally, industrial AC units may vary in size but they will usually be over 2 tons or 24,000 British Thermal Units (BTU) to about 150 tons to 150 tons (1,800,000 BTU).

It may not be easy to estimate the cooling requirements of air conditioning for industrial settings due to the several factors like temperature generated during manufacturing, staff, outside temperature, internal humidity, and energy efficiency of the building and ventilation of the building. Architects usually do provide provisions for installing full warehouse or factory chilling. However, retrofitting a central AC into the warehouse is also possible.

Maintenance and A/C repair of the commercial air conditioning unit

A professional commercial air conditioning firm can properly evaluate your industrial unit. Remember, the maintenance and A/C repair requirements of each industrial unit will vary considerably.

As a result, the commercial air conditioning firm D.B.A/C is best to maintain existing systems, upgrade them and carry out regular A/C repair and renovation procedures to ensure optimum functioning.

We also are very experienced evaluating for and recommending new HVAC systems for the particular needs of an industrial setting.
