If you are in charge of the operations in a shopping mall, then making sure that all of the customers and retailers who are at the mall each day are kept comfortable during the summer and winter months is probably important to you. However, as you might already know, buying and maintaining an HVAC system for a shopping mall can have a lot of challenges. These are some of the challenges that you might find yourself dealing with.
Cost and Efficiency
For one thing, when installing a new heating and air conditioning system in a shopping mall, cost is always a concern. After all, even smaller shopping malls often have a lot of square footage and need large units. Larger shopping malls may need multiple large units in order to keep the building at the appropriate temperature.
Therefore, because of the amount of money that may have to be spent on an adequate system, it's critical to work with the right commercial HVAC company, to do plenty of research and to compare different units before making a choice.
Of course, you don't just have to be concerned about the cost of the units themselves. You also have to think about how much these commercial HVAC units will cost to operate in a large space like a shopping mall. Choosing the most efficient doors possible can help with this. Additionally, doing things like installing automatic doors at the main entrances can help you prevent too much heat or cool air from leaking out.
Another thing that you have to think about when it comes to commercial HVAC systems in shopping malls is maintenance. Of course, as with any HVAC system, it is critical to making sure that these systems are properly cared for. This can be more difficult in a large space that probably has multiple different shops, stores, and restaurants. Working with retailers in regards to care for the HVAC systems, ensuring that important components are in convenient places that can be easily accessed by mall maintenance staff when maintenance and repairs are needed, and more can all help reduce complications and issues.
As you can see, there are various concerns that you need to keep in mind when it comes to installing HVAC systems in shopping malls. Of course, all of these things can be quite overwhelming. If you work with the right commercial HVAC services, however, you should have help each step of the way.
