Significant Savings Unveiled: A Real-life Example of a Commercial Rooftop HVAC Unit
Let’s take a look at an example of a large grocery store chain that decided to install commercial rooftop HVAC units in their stores.
This grocery store chain operates 100 stores, each measuring around 30,000 square feet. The chain was previously using traditional HVAC systems with an average Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) of 13. They decided to upgrade to commercial rooftop HVAC units with a SEER of 16.
Calculating the approximate savings, we can use the formula: Savings = (Operating Hours * (Old Unit BTU / Old Unit SEER – New Unit BTU / New Unit SEER)) / (Cost per kWh * 1000)
- Operating Hours: 15 hours a day, 365 days a year
- Old Unit BTU: 200,000 BTU
- New Unit BTU: 200,000 BTU (the cooling capacity remains the same)
- Cost per kWh: $0.13 (national average in the U.S)
Savings per store per year = (15 * 365 * (200,000 / 13 – 200,000 / 16)) / (0.13 * 1000) = $1,730.77
When we multiply this by the number of stores in the chain, we get a total annual saving of $173,077 for all 100 stores.
But that’s not all! The grocery store chain also benefited from additional space savings, as the rooftop units freed up substantial ground space previously occupied by the traditional HVAC systems. This space was then converted into retail space at an average cost of $200 per square foot, generating additional revenue.
Moreover, the grocery store chain noted a decrease in noise pollution resulting in a more pleasant shopping experience for customers, which they credit as contributing to a 5% increase in customer retention. They also found the new units to be easier and less costly to maintain, reducing maintenance costs by around 20%.
Lastly, the chain saw an increase in property value across their stores, with an estimated increase of 10% due to the new, energy-efficient HVAC units and the subsequent boost in their EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) rating.
In conclusion, the transition to commercial rooftop HVAC units brought about considerable financial savings, improved operational efficiency, a more pleasant environment for customers, and an increase in property value. A single decision transformed their business, setting a prime example for establishments like restaurants, medical facilities, educational institutions, event venues, and more to follow.
As we embark on the finale of our narrative, imagine yourself in a maze. You’ve reached a dead end. You feel the stifling heat around you and the cost and operational inefficiencies seeping into your business, corroding its vital core. Suddenly, you recall the transformative tale of the large grocery store chain and their significant savings due to one strategic decision – the adoption of a commercial rooftop HVAC unit. Picture those savings flowing into your business, the increased customer satisfaction, the additional retail space, and the property value appreciation.
It’s a tantalizing vision, isn’t it? But it doesn’t have to remain a vision. The trail has been blazed; the path to success illuminated. It’s time for you to step into this brighter future, to take control of your destiny.

What is a commercial rooftop HVAC unit?
A commercial rooftop HVAC unit is a comprehensive, packaged unit installed on the roof of a commercial building. It contains all necessary air conditioning components, including the evaporator coil, fan, compressor, and condenser, housed together in one unit.
How long does a commercial rooftop HVAC unit last?
Typically, a commercial rooftop HVAC unit has a lifespan of 15 to 20 years.
How does a commercial rooftop HVAC unit work?
The unit works by compressing cool, low-pressure refrigerant into a hot, high-pressure gas, which then flows into the condenser coil. The heat is absorbed and dispersed, with the condenser fan blowing the exhaust away from the building. Warm air from the building, along with fresh air for ventilation, passes over the evaporator coil, allowing the refrigerant to extract heat from the air. The cooled air is then circulated back into the building.
Can a commercial rooftop HVAC unit provide heating?
Yes, many rooftop units can also provide heating. They typically contain a gas heat exchanger downstream from the evaporator fan. In heating mode, return air is discharged into the heater and blows over gas-fired coils. A fan then sends the newly heated supply air back into the building.
What are the benefits of installing a commercial rooftop HVAC unit?
There are many benefits to installing a commercial rooftop HVAC unit, including maximizing space utility, cost and energy efficiency, simplified servicing, versatility and scalability, consistent climate control, reduced noise pollution, enhanced security and safety, environmental sustainability, and improved aesthetics of the commercial space.
Are commercial rooftop HVAC units easy to install?
Yes, rooftop units are generally easier to install than split systems, as all components are housed together in one unit.
