There are a few considerations you will need to weigh when choosing an HVAC system for a multi-family home. Your choices will determine the flexibility and comfort of the home’s inhabitants. Let’s have a look at the issues that factor into your choice.
Peak Load Flexibility
When installing a single-family HVAC system, knowing your peak energy demand is a much simpler calculation.

Ease of Maintenance
Regular maintenance guarantees the efficiency and longevity of your HVAC system. Therefore, your system should be easily accessible to professional technicians. You may eventually want to arrange for a regular, hassle-free maintenance plan.
Provide Separate Access to Controls
Each one of the occupant families in your building will need separate access to controls. They will need to independently access the thermostat. That’s why your system should have intuitive controls that are easily accessible.
Centralized Versus Decentralized Units
A centralized HVAC system tends to cost more and is powered from a central location whereas a decentralized system delivers different air to the individual apartment units and does not operate from within the building. The choice you make will be based on the number of units in your building as well as where you plan on placing the HVAC system. This choice is best made with the help of a reliable HVAC professional.
