There are three common types of commercial HVAC systems: multi-split system, VRV, and CAV system. From all these, the Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) system offers more value for your money. The reason is it uses refrigerant as the primary cooling element and delivers the best performance.

Besides performance, you may also look for a solution that can cover your entire office building. VRV has a single condenser that supports multiple evaporators. Thus, you can implement it all over your medium or large commercial space. 

The lifespan of your commercial HVAC system is dependent on numerous factors including repairs, maintenance, and usage. A well-maintained AC can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years while a poorly maintained or periodically serviced one might only have a 7 – 8 year expected duration! 

Most often it is more cost effective to replace certain components rather than replacing the entire system. Your professional HVAC technician will advise you on the best route when it comes to repairing your heating and cooling system.

Installing a complete HVAC system in a commercial building is not an easy task. The entire process may take anywhere from 1 to 7 days.

From ductwork to thermostat settings, there’s a complete list of things that a service provider considers during the installation. The time of commercial HVAC installation depends on the size of your organization.

Installation in a small office space may be accomplished in one day while installing HVAC in a multi-floor building may take up to 7 days. You must hire a professional HVAC company to experience the least hassles during the installation. 

If you want to replace your HVAC yourself, the professional advice is no. You should not attempt to replace your HVAC on your own. The HVAC system requires professional tools, technical knowledge, and an expert team. You would need in-depth knowledge of how to configure multiple components and make them work. 

Even if you have that knowledge, you may still lack the professional resources used during the replacement. So, it’s always a great idea to call an HVAC company like Classic Heating and Air instead of replacing the HVAC yourself. 

In 2022, the price of a brand new commercial HVAC system starts from around $7,000 and can go up to $16,000. This includes your primary HVAC system, labor cost, and ductwork after the taxes.

If we expand it further, the main unit cost around $3,000-$5,000, installation labor of $1,000-$3,000, and ductwork of $2,000-$5,000. 

Like residential HVAC systems, the cost of a commercial HVAC system also depends on the size and type of equipment. The higher the HVAC tons, the higher the price, and the larger the building size, the higher the installation cost. 

The compressor is the lifeblood of a commercial AC and the life expectancy of compressors in commercial HVACs is up to 15 years if you maintain them properly.

A compressor of a well-maintained HVAC could provide many years of service. 

However, if you fail to maintain your commercial HVAC, the life of the compressor may reduce to 8-10 years. You must schedule commercial HVAC maintenance once a year to get the expected results from compressors.
