The reason they’re called “air-source” heat pumps is because the use the air both indoors and outdoors for heat transfer.

Custom Sheet Metal for a New Commercial HVAC System

Monday, June 25th, 2018

 

System of ventilating pipes

A typical ventilation system set-up in a commercial or industrial facility consists of pre-fabricated duct sections that are fit together as best they can to serve the space. This allows for fast installation of ductwork during new construction, but it is almost never the ideal way of doing it. The space dictates how the ducts should be laid out, but when the ducts are all pre-fabricated there is little flexibility for putting in ducts in a design that will optimizes airflow, air balance, and conditioned air distribution.
