Types of Buildings Where HVAC Installation is a Must

If you’ve read the title to this post and rolled your eyes thinking “They’re going to say every building needs HVAC,” in a way you’d almostbe right. However, HVAC installation comes with a price; it costs a lot of money to get A/C or a furnace installed and, if you don’t use A/C or the furnace very often or you find ways to stay warm or cool without it, you’re probably better off not having it at all.

That situation we just described is a rare instance. The reality is that many types of buildings not only need HVAC installed, it’s also an absolute necessity to keep things going. We’re going to talk about these types of buildings today.

New real estate

HVAC can actually add a lot to the real estate you’re either looking to buy or trying to sell. However, you have to determine when having it installed is necessary. If the humidity levels are okay and air conditioning seems unnecessary, it won’t add value to the house. If the systems are already in working order, replacing it with a new one isn’t necessary either. The area surrounding the house also matters in terms of air quality and temperature; if both are adequate, then there’s no need for a new system.

However, if the ducting and systems are over 15 years old and you put in the effort to replace them, a new HVAC system can add value to the property you’re trying to sell. This is because it removes the burden of expense on the homebuyers’ parts to replace the system themselves, which is a more desirable thing to want from a new home than the opposite.


If you run a restaurant, you’re going to need HVAC to keep your business running smoothly. Commercial fridges, hot water tanks, A/C, ice machines—all of these systems work together to ensure a comfortable cooking and dining experience.

The dishes you serve food on should be clean and warm, the food you ordered should be properly stored and cooled, and you, your staff, and your customers should all comfortable when the heat gets to be too much or when humidity levels are high. All of this boils down to having properly maintained HVAC equipment around.

Grocery/Convenience Stores

It’s rare these days to find a grocery or convenience store that sells food but not the refrigerated kind. Commercial fridges are not limited to restaurants; they can add value to your grocery business by offering refrigerated and frozen products. After all, much of the food we buy requires heating and cooling systems installed to ensure we’re getting fresh ingredients as well as a brief respite from the hot or cold weather outside.

Elevated Homes or Buildings

In cities such as Abbotsford or Coquitlam where several of the houses are elevated or facing the mountainside, that means the temperature can be extreme on either side depending on the season! Add in the features of wide windows that can suck in direct sunlight in some homes, and you’re looking at a warm space that heats up fast. Central A/C or a portable air conditioner and heat pumps can make the difference from a too-warm-too-fast environment to one that’s more comfortable.

New construction sites

Believe it or not, an HVAC technician is in fact someone you want to have on site for new construction. A professional technician can help install equipment while construction is going on that is energy efficient, high tech, and properly sized to fit the new building’s requirements. Some technicians, such as our team, are also licensed to handle the electrical components during installation or replacement (depending on which is required). This will ensure that when the process is complete, it’s safe to use and ready to go once construction is finished.
