Industrial HVAC systems are typically much larger and more complex than commercial HVAC systems. They are designed to handle larger and more extreme temperature changes due to the size of the buildings. Commercial HVAC systems, on the other hand, are typically smaller and less complex coming is standard size units. They are typically designed for more moderate temperature changes and less hazardous environments whilst achieving the correct level of Indoor Air Quality.


Industrial HVAC systems can be designed to handle more extreme environments, such as excessive heat generation from equipment, toxic fumes and cleaner critical areas. That's why it is important to contact an experienced company when you are looking for ventilation, cooling, heating or air conditioning within your industrial plant when you want to invest in or replace a system.


Commercial systems depending of their size and be placed inside or outside of buildings or on the roof. Industrial HVAC units are typically placed outdoors on the roof or near the facility. They tend to be a lot larger and require the external space. This is to generate a larger volume of air to be pulled through the HVAC system due to the area required. Generally, these are placed on the roof, however you need to ensure that the roof can withstand the weight of the equipment.
