Hole for HVAC units
HVAC stands for “Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning.” It’s an acronym architects, engineers, and builders use all the time. We’re getting 2 new 5-ton HVAC units installed at the restaurant at 7 Holyoke St. We’ve been back and forth with engineers who would like one more (3 5-ton units), but we’ve ended up with 2 in part due to cost constraints, in part due to space constraints. 2 instead of 3 should mean less energy used (I like that). And we are using something called “heated make-up air” in coordination with our hood which should also contribute to keeping everything balanced.
The real test will come when we operate the restaurant. We can always add another unit later if necessary.
