When it comes to your business, Jennings Heating wants to help you be sure that the commercial package unit you choose will keep your business comfortable. There are many different commercial package units, but they all fall into two categories: heat pump (electric) or gas.

Efficiency Ratings

Efficiency ratings are based on the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating). SEER is the same for gas and electric heat pumps, measuring how much energy is used to cool a home. The higher the SEER, the more efficient it is.

Gas heat or electric heat pump

Gas heat is generally the most efficient option for any commercial building, saving money on utility bills. However, gas systems are more expensive to install than electric heat pumps.

Electric heat pumps are a good choice if you want to reduce your carbon footprint but don’t have the budget for a natural gas system. They’re quiet and efficient, making them perfect for office buildings where employees need peace and quiet to stay productive throughout their day.

It may be expensive to switch from one heat source to the other.

It may be expensive to switch from one heat source to another. You’ll have to pay for a gas line installation if you change from electric to gas. This can become expensive, depending on the unit’s size and location (the further away from the gas meter or accessible gas line, the more expensive it is).

If you decide to use electricity instead of gas, it will require new electrical wires to run from a breaker box into your unit. The further the unit is from the breaker box, the more expensive the installation.

Jennings Heating and Cooling is happy to provide you with an HVAC estimate as well as an electrical estimate if necessary. At this time, our professionals can discuss what options are available to you for the specified project. We will ensure that you are aware of any costs associated with changing your heating source.

Are you changing out your old unit for a new unit?

If you are happy with your old unit, you may want to stick with the same brand. Going back with the same brand is often cheaper to install and may be less hassle overall.

However, if you weren’t happy with your previous unit, consider switching brands now. While changing brands may require new mounting hardware and roof alterations (depending on the brand of choice), it could also result in higher efficiency and better performance from your new unit!

Is this a brand-new building with a brand-new commercial package unit?

If you are building a new building with plans to install a brand-new commercial package unit, Jennings Heating can help guide you on what size unit will work best for your business. They may also have a preferred brand that they generally deal with and will be able to install more efficiently. This may also mean that if there are problems with the system after installation, they will have a relationship with the brand and will be able to repair it quickly and efficiently.

Are you changing out your old unit for a new unit?

If you’re going to replace your old unit with a new one, you must consider what type of dealer you purchased from. If you’re happy with the brand and model already installed in your building, purchasing another unit from the same manufacturing company is often a good idea.

However, if you weren’t satisfied with the performance of your first unit or were unhappy with other aspects of its installation, it may be wise to look elsewhere for a new commercial package unit. In this case, choosing an alternate brand can help establish a better working relationship between yourself and the dealer installing your new system.
