It is not uncommon to have working spaces in offices, warehouses and factories air conditioned. While it definitely leads to working in more comfortable conditions, this need for climate control can be necessitated because of any products or manufacturing processes that demand controlled temperatures.

Commercial air conditioning systems can be of many types and selecting the right one for your particular space requires the proper consideration of a number of factors that go into the work and various processes and actions being undertaken in those spaces. A decision on a particular option can also be influenced by the energy consumption that any equipment has, the number of hours it needs to operate and other factors like the need for maintenance and insulation.
Any equipment that you select for the air conditioning of your commercial property must be one that is right for the particular premises, the staff and workers in it, the operations that will be taking place there, and at times what is needed by your customers. It must be of the right capacity for your present needs and in the future. You will have to consider space for additional equipment when you need to grow your business. Any equipment chosen must be not only energy efficient, but it can also make a statement of corporate policy if it is also environmentally friendly. The chosen equipment must be able to function without producing too much of noise that can often be a distraction for staff and workers. If your manufacturing processes have equipment that produces heat, or other action that uses chemicals or paints, these must be factored into the design of any air conditioning system. Commercial air conditioning is a must for hospitals, restaurants, hotels, and offices.
There are various options available when you need to go in for air conditioning any commercial space. Split units are by far the most common, and have condensers and cooling devices at a central space or in a space that is away from the area that needs to be cooled. This allows for a completely noise-free environment, as it is only fan units that are in the working space, and these situated at heights. Systems with cooling towers can also be installed on rooftops, and this arrangement also makes it very easy for maintenance of the equipment without in any way disturbing the working in that building. You can use glycol cooling systems that allow for temperatures as low as 10 degrees Celsius. These systems are ideal for large establishments and those that have many different sections. A majority of commercial air conditioning systems use water for cooling. The water does get heated up when the temperatures inside are reduced, but this is cooled with cooling towers, where water is allowed to run down the towers freely while it passes though fans.
Maintenance of systems can often play a major part in any final decision on the chosen option for air conditioning any commercial space. It also makes sense to go in for equipment from reputed manufacturers and agencies who are well established in the area where you have your commercial venture. In many geographical locations it may be necessary to have systems that can be used for heating and ventilation also , and it can often help if the supplier of the equipment for both purposes is the same, as the equipment that is common can be fully utilized, whether in winter, summer or for period when you only need ventilation and fresh air. Conducting an energy audit before deciding on equipment can go a long way to reduce energy bills, by deciding on insulation and other factors that affect indoor temperatures.
