When researching commercial heating systems in Herndon businesses must first determine what their individual needs are. Every company and business has unique needs which make a ‘one size fits all’ approach to heating systems not work. With so many options on the market these days it’s easy for business owners to become confused. By conferring with a commercial heating systems technician the various types of heating systems can be explained and a recommendation can be made.
Gas And Oil Steam Systems
Everyone has fond memories of either a church or school or even a home that housed radiators in every room. They would turn on in the winter and with a quiet hissing emit warmth throughout the room. While these are one of the oldest methods of heating commercial buildings they are by far not the most economical. Crucial to this type of system is the boiler room where gas or oil is used to boil water which is then passed through piping and used to heat a building. Not only does this method use a lot of gas making it very expensive it also takes a long time for the warmth to reach rooms because of the time it takes to boil the water.
Heat Pump Systems
Anyone who has ever put their hand behind a refrigerator knows how hot it can be. Heat pump systems work in the same way as refrigerators. They remove heat from cold air and then send it through the ventilation system. As far as commercial heating systems go Herndon businesses quite often rely on heat pumps. They are much more efficient that steam systems and are relatively inexpensive to install.
Natural Energy Sources
With the advent of new technology Herndon business owners now have more ‘green’ options when shopping for commercial heating systems. One type is solar. By harnessing the power of the sun heat can be generated and circulated through a building with very little, if any, natural resources spent. Another option is geothermal heating. With this method a tunnel of piping in laid below ground and filled with liquid. The liquid is run across coils (much like the heat pump method) which change it into a gas which then expresses heat through the building. As the gas cools it once again becomes a liquid and the temperature is regulated through the network of underground pipes.
When shopping for commercial heating systems the initial installation price should not be the only consideration. Included in research should be the cost of natural resources to run it, parts and labor for maintenance and lifespan. Only a qualified commercial heating systems specialist can fully explain the options as well as cost-effectiveness. Although every industry needs commercial heating systems Herndon business owners understand that different systems work for different needs.
Depending on the industry and purpose of the building commercial heating systems Herndon vary greatly. Business owners should contact Refrigeration Systems Inc for more information.
