Today we’re going to cover three reasons why you’ll need a HVAC system after building renovations are completed. From time to time, your office space and commercial facilities need to be upgraded. These upgrades often take the form of remodeling and renovation projects. These endeavors are supposed to help your business thrive. Even so, there are numerous logistical challenges to address and overcome. One such dilemma is replacing the HVAC system when it becomes necessary.
Changed Layouts Call for New Ductwork
Air ducts move heated and cooled air throughout your facility. The ventilation system you had in place before the renovation was optimized for the space that it was in. What exactly does this mean? This means that comfort has been made a priority, and any changes in layout or floor plan will affect that level of comfort for both you and your employees, along with any visitors who might be coming into your office, even if it is only sporadically. Changing the positions of walls, windows, doors, and office cubicles will all impact airflow; thus, ventilation and ductwork need to be updated to avoid the possibility of random hot and cold spots throughout the workplace.
HVAC System Needs Will Change
As we alluded to above, heating and cooling needs tend to change throughout the year. After a renovation is complete, your HVAC system must be overhauled as well. This state of affairs is simply due to the fact that your business is likely going to be radically different from the previous occupant of that same space. There is a vast difference between spaces meant for exercising, retail locations, or typical offices with computer equipment and other electronics adding their own sources of heat throughout the day.
You Have More Employees on Your Team
Despite many companies implementing cutbacks and furloughs in recent months, it is entirely possible that your organization can emerge from the turmoil of the times even stronger. As a result, you might be in a position to expand your team. If that is the case, then you will need more cooling, even as fall approaches and winter follows behind it.
