What are the differences between Residential and Commercial HVAC?

What seems like an obvious question may not be as it seems. Residential or Commercial HVAC are normally associated with the building that the equipment resides in. Many times, a “commercial” building has residential furnaces and air conditioners creating the buildings comfort. At ETI School of Skilled Trades, we will explore these differences and help you understand what makes each of them unique.

A home can be beautiful in every way with an amazing view from every window, top of the line furnishings, and every amenity a home can provide.
