Is a commercial rooftop air conditioning unit right for your building?
  • Are you thinking about upgrading the heating, ventilating and air conditioning  (HVAC) systems of your business or industrial facility?
  • Are you considering the installation of a rooftop air conditioning (AC) unit?

Keep reading to learn more about why rooftop AC units are a preferred choice for buildings and industries across Canada.

Make the most of your space

Regardless of the type of business or industrial facility you operate, chances are space is at a premium.

  • By using a rooftop air conditioning unit or combination heating and cooling system, you will open up vital space for storage, work stations, parking and more in your building.
  • You can have a comfortable environment without giving up precious square footage.

Enjoy the versatility of rooftop units

Rooftop HVAC and AC units are modular in nature.

  • In other words, they are designed in a way that you can add and subtract components as needed.
  • This is a great feature for a growing business whose comfort demands might change over time.
  • With your system located on the roof, you don’t have to worry about having enough space to add on. Of course, it helps to have easy rooftop access.
  • You also don’t have to worry about unnecessary interruptions and distractions inside your building.

Ease of maintenance and repairs

Having all of your HVAC components in one place will add convenience in terms of maintenance, troubleshooting and repairs.

  • Your HVAC technician will be able to handle your job in a timely manner — from one location.

With traditional central air conditioner systems, the technician would need to check the furnace, the AC unit and all the connections in between.

Standing up to Canada’s weather extremes

Rooftop units are specially designed to withstand weather extremes common in Canada.

  • That being said, just because your AC rooftop unit is out of sight doesn’t mean it should be out of mind.
  • To ensure the proper functioning and long life of your system, you should have a reputable HVAC technician skilled in commercial rooftop systems.

Final questions

You can save space, set the stage for future expansion and enjoy the ease of maintenance and repairs by installing a rooftop HVAC or AC unit at your facility.

As with other HVAC systems, you have many options and questions to consider.

  • What is the size of your facility?
  • How much weight can your roof support?
  • What level of energy efficiency do you want to achieve?
