Commercial HVAC systems are complex systems that give and take away heat or cool air in a commercial facility. Aside from the workings of different commercial HVAC systems, electrical wiring must connect certain HVAC parts to each other and from the initial connection to the building’s power source. TriStar Electric is here to provide your Maryland business with all aspects of HVAC wiring installations, including chiller wiring. Contact us for chiller wiring services in Northern VA, Washington, D.C., and the MD counties of Baltimore, Howard, Montgomery, Prince George’s, and Anne Arundel.

Understanding Chillers for Commercial Properties
Overall, there are two types of chillers, vapor compression systems, and vapor absorption systems. Vapor compression systems use electricity to power motors that push water or air to move the refrigerant. Meanwhile, vapor absorption systems use a heat source like steam. The former kind is much more common than the latter.
Two main types of vapor compression systems are water-cooled and air-cooled. If you have seen a large metal object that looks like a water tank on a roof, that would likely be a water-cooled chiller.
What Is the Purpose of a Chiller?
Any chiller’s goal is to cool a commercial building’s interior spaces; in other words, it air-conditions the property. It acts like a refrigerator, using the second law of thermodynamics to allow the refrigerant to absorb interior heat and let it go outdoors through a cooling tower, usually located on the roof. Because air-cooled chillers are located on the roof, they are more susceptible to wear and tear. Either way, chillers’ electrical workings are susceptible to damage due to their complexity or lack of maintenance.
Where Can You Find Chillers?
Large and medium-sized buildings have water-cooled chillers, while medium and smaller structures will have air-cooled chillers. They are applicable to any industry within such a building, such as healthcare, education, manufacturing, warehousing, and much more.
