The air quality inside your commercial building is an essential element that business owners, landlords, educators, and healthcare professionals cannot afford to overlook. If the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems in your commercial business are delivering contaminated air to your employees — and experts estimate that half of commercial HVAC systems are contaminated — the health, productivity, and comfort of building occupants are at risk.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that Americans are indoors 90 percent of the time. Much of that time is in the workplace. Aqua Plumbing & Air takes indoor air quality seriously and provides the expertise you need to maintain a healthy, safe workplace. Our certified technicians install, repair, and service a variety of HVAC and air quality systems.

Since 1924, Daikin has been a global leader in air conditioning and air quality systems. With its focus on innovation, growth, and environmentally friendly products, Daikin offers energy-efficient heating and air conditioning systems for commercial businesses of all sizes.
The Daikin VRV (variable refrigerant volume) air conditioning system is a trademarked technology that circulates the minimum amount of refrigerant when heating or cooling your commercial facility. VRV technology gives you individual control over different zones within your building.
Benefits of Daikin VRV
The Daikin VRV system, launched in 1982, connects one outdoor unit to multiple indoor units, similar to other multi-split systems. Each indoor unit determines its energy demands based on the temperature setting for each zone. The Daikin VRV system offers a number of benefits to business owners:

- Reduced noise levels
- Efficient, environmentally friendly refrigerant
Commercial Chillers and Cooling Towers
Many mid- and large-size industrial and commercial buildings generate a lot of heat from manufacturing machinery, computers, electrical equipment, lighting, or people. Chillers are an effective way to regulate air temperature and dehumidify these types of commercial buildings. The two most frequently installed types of chillers are water-cooled and air-cooled.
Water-cooled chillers are typically found in larger industrial and commercial settings and are commonly located in a mechanical equipment room. These systems generate and pipe chilled water to air handler units in different rooms, floors, or individual tenant spaces throughout the building.
As the water circulates, it absorbs heat generated by the AC condenser. The heated water is sent to a cooling tower, where it is cooled and returned to the condenser coil to start the cycle again. Benefits of water-cooled chillers include:
Air-cooled chillers are better suited for smaller commercial buildings. They are often referred to as packaged units because all of the components are packaged together in one cabinet. Air-cooled chillers are usually located outside of the building. Benefits of air-cooled chillers include:
- Easier to install
- Less costly compared to water-cooled chillers
- Practical when space constraints exist
Your HVAC system is the heart of your commercial efficiency and comfort, and its performance significantly affects your operating costs. Regular maintenance keeps your equipment functioning smoothly, enabling it to withstand the peak demands of Southwest Florida weather and avoid the downtime that adversely affects your business. More important, maintenance reduces the risk that poor indoor air quality will cause your employees and customers to become sick.
The air quality level in your commercial building can change quickly if your HVAC system malfunctions. Inadequate ventilation fails to remove chemical and biological pollutants floating in your air as gasses or microscopic particles. High levels of humidity promote biologic and bacteria growth and trigger allergy and asthma attacks. Inconsistent temperatures lead to an uncomfortable environment and produce unhappy employees and customers.
Whether you cool your commercial facility with central air, a ductless system, or a chiller, Aqua’s maintenance plans will keep your HVAC system working the way it should. Discovering and repairing problems while they are small ensures that your building has a steady stream of fresh, clean air.
