Domestic vs commercial mechanical services

The main differences when it comes to mechanical services for domestic and commercial purposes is the scope of the work and expertise used. Domestic mechanical services typically consist of maintenance work and occasionally work to improve a building’s systems. These services will ensure the building performs its intended function.

Commercial mechanical services include all of the above, while also taking steps to ensure the building is operating at maximum efficiency. As such, specialist mechanical services may be employed depending on the areas that need to be addressed. For instance, a chemical manufacturer will likely require more extensive HVAC maintenance work to support their operations. Measures may also include features that can increase the long term asset value of the property. For instance, improvements in ventilation could result in the scope of emissions falling under Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) legislation.
