As desert dwellers, Wisco Supply Inc. knows a thing or two about the importance of effective commercial air conditioning and air systems. As your industrial supplier, we work with businesses of all kinds and sizes to supply them with the equipment they need to repair and set up a good air system. There is a lot that goes into having a working and efficient commercial air conditioning system. We thought we’d take a look at some of the main components of a good commercial air conditioning.
When it comes to providing industrial supplies to warehouses or other industries, we provide only high-quality products and installation. Part of our role as a wholesale distributor is to build relationships with the business community of the region we serve. As a company, we have been serving the Southwest for many decades and take that responsibility very seriously. Our clients know who to trust with their supplies and we live up to that by providing high-quality service and products.
The Role of the Wholesalers in the Commercial Air Systems Supply Chain
As a wholesaler, we are an important part of the supply chain. A company’s supply chain relies on wholesalers, distributors, or a combination of the two. So what is the difference between these two entities?
A supply chain refers to the entire network of entities that work together or in tandem to supply a company with products it needs. It is made up of several entities:
- Vendors that supply raw materials
- Producers who convert the material into products
- Warehouses that store these products
- Distribution centers that deliver to the retailers
- And retailers that bring the product to the users
Depending on what industry we’re talking about, one or two of these entities could be cut out of the equation. With Wisco Supply, for example, our clients get the quality products from top manufacturers directly through us. We help with answering questions, installation, and more. We employ people that are knowledgeable and experts on the products in question so that people get quality service.
Servicing a commercial site with air conditioning services or boilers is a little different than a residential HVAC needs.
The Difference Between Residential and Commercial HVAC
Let’s start from the beginning. We all know that a residential air conditioning system and a commercial one have similar purposes but different responsibilities. That is, the task of a commercial air conditioner is usually much greater, must cover a lot more ground, and is a lot more powerful. So the biggest differences between the two include:
- Size and operating power. Because the size they are cooling is typically far different, commercial air conditioners have to be a lot bigger and more powerful. The needs are intensive, as commercial systems are programmed for efficient heating and cooling. So one big consideration is that the installation of a commercial air system must have into consideration the rest of the electrical system and ensure that the system is not taxing the system too much.
- Intricacy. Because they have to be more powerful, the system in a commercial building is typically far more complex as well. As opposed to cooling or heating just one home or one space, an office building or industrial plant, for example, has a lot more complex demands when it comes to how it needs to be cooled.
- Exhaust, ventilation, and drainage. Most systems have to have some form of drainage and installing this will be far more difficult in a commercial building. Additional components are also needed for the exhaust system in order to ensure proper function.
- Location. In a residential house, the air conditioning system will be located on the side of the house or on the roof. In a commercial building, the HVAC is typically on top of a building. There are several reasons why commercial air systems are placed on the roof: the size of the unit is usually far larger, commercial units are far louder, the roof allows for easy access to the units when it comes to maintenance and repairs without disturbing business too much.
- Installation and manufacture. Residential HVAC has a relatively straightforward installation. When it comes to commercial buildings, the air conditioner system must be customized to serve the building. The way space is laid out and how it is distributed has a lot to do with how it will be installed and the kind of system needed.
As a wholesaler, we buy the products directly from the manufacturer. It’s why we specialize in the products we sell and supply. We want to ensure that the businesses we work with have a good experience when trying to install or set up an air conditioner system, boiler, etc. We supply equipment and supplies such as:
- Rotary lobe blowers
- Oil-free compressors
- Compressed air dryers
- Aircheck and relief valves
- Air dryers and chillers
When it comes to supplying your businesses with industrial supplies, trust a wholesaler that has been in the business for fifty years. Here at Wisco Supply, we have been working with businesses of all kinds since the beginning of our company.
