The article discusses the development and benefits of applied rooftop heating systems in commercial buildings and industrial facilities in the U.S. These benefits include configuration flexibility, energy efficiency and wide operating ranges for both owners and design engineers. There are two types of applied rooftop heating systems such as variable-air-volume (VAV) systems and 100-percent-outdoor-air systems. Applied rooftop heating systems are useful for schools, churches and shopping malls.
