Before pro­ceed­ing with the instal­la­tion of an air con­di­tion­er in a store, it is nec­es­sary to deter­mine the required cool­ing capac­i­ty. It depends on the num­ber of refrig­er­a­tors and oth­er equip­ment, the size of win­dows, light­ing, the approx­i­mate num­ber of vis­i­tors, the heat­ing sys­tem, etc. If pos­si­ble, the air con­di­tion­ing and ven­ti­la­tion para­me­ters should be set at the design stage of the room — this will avoid a num­ber of com­pli­ca­tions. A good spe­cial­ist will offer an air con­di­tion­ing sys­tem that will meet all cli­mat­ic require­ments and will not vio­late the design of the store.

For air con­di­tion­ing a very small shop or stall, the best way out may be win­dow air con­di­tion­er. Despite the fact that many have brought such air con­di­tion­ers into the cat­e­go­ry of anachro­nisms, they can be indis­pens­able in a meat or dairy pavil­ion. The fact is that show­cas­es-refrig­er­a­tors radi­ate a fair­ly large amount of heat. Giv­en the small vol­ume of the room, it turns into a real sauna, and since win­dow air con­di­tion­er does not require expen­sive tools and qual­i­fied spe­cial­ists for its instal­la­tion, it is the most eco­nom­i­cal solu­tion.

How­ev­er, for cool­ing a large store or depart­ment store, the option of using a win­dow air con­di­tion­er is unac­cept­able. This air con­di­tion­er is tied to the win­dow open­ing, and there­fore reduces the illu­mi­na­tion, and in large areas, the cooled air will be dis­trib­uted uneven­ly. In this case, it is best to use a duct­ed air con­di­tion­er or a mul­ti-split sys­tem with a cas­sette-type indoor unit.

Using duct air con­di­tion­er dis­tri­b­u­tion of air through­out the premis­es is car­ried out through a sys­tem of air ducts, which are placed under the false ceil­ing. With the help of air ducts, it is pos­si­ble to release cooled or heat­ed air in two, three, five, ten or more places, if nec­es­sary, dis­trib­ut­ing it to sev­er­al rooms at once. In addi­tion, the duct air con­di­tion­er has the abil­i­ty to sup­ply fresh air from the street in the vol­umes nec­es­sary for prop­er ven­ti­la­tion. A sig­nif­i­cant dis­ad­van­tage of the “ducts” is that they are some­what more expen­sive than oth­er split sys­tems, and in addi­tion, their instal­la­tion requires the pres­ence of sus­pend­ed ceil­ings.

Cas­sette air con­di­tion­ers also installed behind a false ceil­ing. Cas­sette air con­di­tion­ers direct cooled or heat­ed air hor­i­zon­tal­ly along the ceil­ing in four direc­tions at once. The strength of the flow in each direc­tion is reg­u­lat­ed sep­a­rate­ly, which allows you to dis­trib­ute air more even­ly through­out the room and avoid direct flow to peo­ple. A cas­sette air con­di­tion­er is placed above the cen­ter of the trad­ing floor, thanks to which the store main­tains the most even tem­per­a­ture back­ground.

Small shops can use wall-mount­ed split sys­tem. To date, this is the most com­mon mod­el of air con­di­tion­ers, it is pro­duced by absolute­ly all exist­ing com­pa­nies. True, you can use a wall-mount­ed split sys­tem only in one room — for two, or even more so three, it is no longer enough.

In “glass” stores and oth­er stores, the walls of which are not suit­able for mount­ing wall-mount­ed indoor units, and there is no false ceil­ing, they will come in handy ceil­ing air con­di­tion­ers. As the name implies, these air con­di­tion­ers are mount­ed direct­ly to the ceil­ing, and direct the flow of cooled air hor­i­zon­tal­ly along the ceil­ing — oth­er­wise, due to the high air flow rate, peo­ple in the imme­di­ate vicin­i­ty of the air con­di­tion­er could catch a cold.

How­ev­er, in each case, the choice of air con­di­tion­ing requires an indi­vid­ual approach, and it is best to seek the advice of a spe­cial­ist.
