The Benefits of Installing a Chiller System in Your Commercial Building

Chiller System HVAC services for commercial buildings

As the demand for energy efficiency and cost savings increases, commercial buildings are turning to chillers as an effective solution to regulate temperatures. A chiller is essentially an air conditioning unit that circulates chilled water through pipes located in walls, ceilings, or floors resulting in cooler air being delivered into each room helping maintain more consistent temperatures throughout the day! In this blog post, we will discuss why installing a chiller system can be beneficial for your commercial building, as well as the four main components of a chiller system.

What are Chiller Systems?

Chiller systems are often used in HVAC systems to help regulate temperatures within a large area. The most common type of chiller system is the chilled water HVAC system which uses refrigerant to cool water before it is circulated through piping systems and air handlers throughout the building. This results in cooler air being delivered into each room and helps maintain more consistent temperatures throughout the day.

Benefits of a Chiller System

Chillers are also highly efficient and can reduce energy costs significantly compared to traditional HVAC systems. They have been shown to provide up to 30% greater energy efficiency than conventional air conditioning systems and can significantly reduce your monthly electricity bill. Additionally, chillers tend to last longer than traditional AC units.

What are the 4 Main Components of a Chiller System?

The four main components of a chiller system include evaporator coils, condenser coils, compressor, and expansion valve/orifice plate. The evaporator coil absorbs heat from inside the building while the condenser coil releases heat outside of the building. The compressor compresses gas molecules into liquid form which then passes through the expansion valve/orifice plate where it expands back into gas.  

A well-maintained chiller system can help you save energy and money while still keeping your building comfortable all year round. The greater capacity of chillers over other types of HVAC systems requires fewer pieces of equipment.
