6 Best Commercial-Grade Air Conditioner (AC) Units


Not all commercial-grade air conditioner units are created equal, despite what many people think. While they all may perform the same function – bringing in air, removing the heat from it, and cooling things off – there are varying levels on how efficiently this is done, and how much cooling an area will cost. We’ve been installing commercial-grade air conditioning units for many years, and can offer some tips on the best units you can get for the most bang for your buck.

AC Units That Get the Job Done:

Trane: Made well, Trane units are often found in commercial settings, where they may have been in use for years, providing cooling without issues. Like Carrier, Trane also has a solid reputation when it comes to their commercial units.

Carrier: This brand of A/C unit is very strong, and offers a number of units, fit for any commercial need. Carrier has an excellent reputation, and won’t let you down.

York: Another solid brand, York air conditioners are well built, and efficient. The only downside is that they have a simpler design, and don’t offer some of the bells and whistles available with other brands.

Goodman: Reliable and less costly than some brands, we’ve also had good experiences with Goodman A/C units. They’re also known for being a company with great customer service, which helps when an issue does come up.

Lennox: Like the other brands on this list, Lennox is reliable and solid. The downside is that they’re a bit pricier than some of the others, and replacement parts can be costly.

Rheem: This brand is a bit different than the others on the list. While they will perform well, Rheem A/C units are prone to having frozen coils, and may need more maintenance than the others. This is because they have a distinctive geometric configuration. They also need to be cleaned more frequently.
