Here are the four major differences between Commercial and Residential HVAC systems are followings.
Commercial systems are more powerful – As you may know that the commercial spaces are much larger than residential space and often serve a larger number of people. Commercial HVAC units are large in size and properly sized to account for the customers and employees during peak hours. It should be properly sized by the experienced HVAC contractor or professional with their technical skills. On the other hand, residential HVAC systems are smaller in size and it has also a limited heating and cooling capacity.

The second difference is that the commercial systems are generally housed on the roof of the commercial building but residential systems are placed behind the house but this arrangement is impractical for the commercial HVAC systems. So the location also makes a big difference between them.
Commercial units are packaged while on the other hand residential units are split.
Residential systems are standalone but the commercial HVAC systems are modular.
