Parts of a Commercial HVAC Unit

Your HVAC unit is made up of several separate components, and it’s important to know how those components work. All Temp, the experts in air conditioning replacement Kissimmee, have your crash course to learning the parts of a commercial HVAC unit.

Condensing Unit
Located outside the building, the condensing unit is connected to the evaporator coil. The condenser is what contains the refrigerant, which is cooled through heat exchange. Gas is compressed and condensed into a liquid, which is then sent to the evaporator coil. Once converted back into a gaseous form, it’s sent back to the condenser. This process is how your HVAC unit cools.

Ducts
Without ducts, your HVAC unit could do nothing. Ducts allow air to be delivered to each part of your commercial building. In order to run effectively, a properly built duct network is crucial.

Evaporator Coil
The evaporator coil is the reason air cools. It is typically located on the top or side of the furnace.

Furnace
Your furnace is essential to those, albeit rare, cold Florida days. The furnace heats the air that comes through the system, typically through combustion where oil, natural gas, coal, or propane is burned.

Heat Exchanger
This component is responsible for extracting cold air from your commercial building; it then heats it and circulates the hot air similar to how the evaporator coil distributes cool air.

Refrigerant Lines
The refrigerant lines carry the refrigerant between the condensing unit and the evaporator coil. Usually made of copper of aluminum, they are built to work in either extremely hot or cold weather.

Thermostat
A key component to any HVAC system — commercial or residential — the thermostat is what causes the system to start heating or cooling.

Vents
Cut into ducts, vents allow air to enter each part of your commercial building.
