Choosing a rooftop unit for commercial space

I spent nearly two years looking for the perfect commercial household to purchase with the purpose of opening a Tim Hortons Cappuccino shop. I was hoping for a legitimately visible location with plenty of parking. Big front windows & adequate square footage for a prep area, display case, seating, storage, an office & bathrooms was important. My budget necessitated choosing a fixer-upper. I found a commercial building that was everything I wanted. The household had been vacant for several years & allowed rundown. There were weeds growing through the pavement of the parking lot, issues with the roof, broken windows & water disfigurement from corroded plumbing, but one concern was the heating & cooling unit. The packaged unit was situated alongside the building, taking up a significant amount of space in the parking lot. Large & noisy, the heating/cooling system was an eyesore & a detriment to the property. I hired an Heating, Ventilation & A/C corporation to check it over & he said that the system was not worth saving. He recommended investing into a rooftop unit. Since I already needed repairs to the roof, I was able to add reinforcements to handle the added weight of the equipment. Lifting the system up off the ground was a space-saving measure. It also removes operational sounds & the issues with aesthetics. Plus, the heating & cooling system can be worked on or repaired during proper business hours separate from disrupting my clients. It also protects the unit from vandalism. The rooftop heating & cooling unit has proven charmingly effective, providing ideal comfort no matter the weather. The operation is efficient & reliable.
