Commercial chillers are crucial to the comfort of your customers and employees. Whether you're seeking a new chiller installation, need a replacement for an outdated unit, or simply need routine maintenance to keep your system running smoothly, you can rely on us for all your chiller-related needs.

How Does a Commercial Chiller Work?

Commercial or industrial chillers are essential components of HVAC systems in large buildings, helping to regulate temperatures in commercial spaces. Like air conditioning units, commercial chillers use refrigerant to absorb heat from one place and transfer it to another, resulting in cool spaces.

First, commercial chillers transport heat from the building to the chiller unit. Inside the chiller unit, a refrigerant absorbs the heat and converts it from a liquid to a gas. The heated gas is then transferred to a condenser, where it's passed through coils surrounded by a cooling medium and condensed back into a liquid.

This cycle recurs, continuously removing heat from the surrounding space and maintaining a cool and comfortable environment for your customers and employees.

Types of Commercial Chillers

Commercial chillers aren't created equal. There are a variety of types, each designed to meet specific cooling needs and applications. At HQR Air, we offer chiller installation, replacement, and maintenance services for a wide range of industrial chillers, including:

  • Air-Cooled Chillers

    These chillers use ambient air as the cooling medium to condense the refrigerant vapor. They are usually used in buildings where water isn't readily available, or water treatment costs are high, making them a cost-effective solution. They're also relatively easy to install and maintain.

  • Water-Cooled Chillers

    These chillers use water as the cooling medium to condense the refrigerant vapor. The water is usually sourced from a cooling tower or municipal water system. They offer better performance than air-cooled chillers, making them ideal for commercial spaces with high cooling demands.

  • Centrifugal Chillers

    These chillers use centrifugal compressors, and they're known for their high cooling capacity. They suit large commercial spaces, industrial facilities, and power plants.

  • Screw Chillers

    These chillers use screw compressors. They are known for their quiet operation and compact size, making them a space-efficient option.

  • Absorption Chillers

    These chillers use heat energy for the cooling process. This quality makes them an eco-conscious and cost-effective option for businesses looking to reduce their water usage and electricity consumption. Our HVAC technicians at HQR Air are conversant with various chillers. Regardless of your cooling requirements, available space, and budget constraints, we'll help you choose an ideal commercial chiller for your specific needs.

Why Is Commercial Chiller Routine Maintenance Important?

Like other mechanical equipment, commercial chillers require routine maintenance to remain in tip-top shape. Regular chiller maintenance can prevent unexpected breakdowns, extend the lifespan of your chiller, enhance chiller energy efficiency, and ensure your employees and customers remain comfortable.
