Setting up shop in a historic commercial building can be a boost to your business. Lawyers, accountants, and other professionals often choose historic buildings to charm their clients. This endeavor can work quite nicely, provided you include energy savings products in the retrofitting project. The key is to keep the historic building’s architecture and charm while adding modern commercial HVAC options.
It can be a challenging prospect, but with a few creative placements to hide the vents and condensing units, it is possible. The use of energy savings products in historic commercial buildings isn’t just to control energy costs. It can also protect the building by controlling humidity and extreme temperature fluctuations.
There is no reason why you can’t enjoy the benefits of energy savings products while capturing the magic of a bygone era. Be sure to take care with placement to keep up with maintenance easily. You also want to avoid the potential of a water leak from the unit damaging the historic woodwork.
