Running a business is a huge undertaking. You have a lot of tasks to juggle, departments to oversee, and affairs to manage. Among all this work, it’s easy to let something like the HVAC system that heats and cools your facility slip from your mind. As long as it seems to be working, creating the desirable indoor environment for your business needs, then you likely won’t focus on it.
However, lack of attention to your commercial heating and air conditioning can be costing you money. Possibly a lot of money. We’re going to look at four common mistakes that people make in commercial facilities that can lead to HVAC system waste.

Does your commercial facility have an HVAC system that’s controlled through a single thermostat? That sounds convenient, but it also means that no matter what, you’ll have a single temperature throughout the facility.
Actually, you’ll have a single temperature setting for the facility, but the temperature will fluctuate throughout it because of things like heat gain through windows, heat from equipment and light, loss of heat through less insulated areas, and constant changes depending on how many people are in the room.
This “one temperature to rule them all” approach doesn’t just mean lack of comfort for people in your facility. It also means energy waste and potential damage to equipment and processes in areas that have the wrong temperatures.
Instead of constantly adjusting the single thermostat to get around these problems, you can opt for the installation of commercial zoning.

This is the right time of the year to prep your facility’s HVAC equipment for the warmer months of the middle of the year.
If you still require heating equipment, it will need an inspection and service after its work during the winter.
Your cooling equipment, whether it works year-round (a chiller, server room cooling) or only during the hot months (air conditioning systems necessary for climate control), must have a thorough inspection and tune-up before the warm weather arrives.
We can see that you have the finest commercial HVAC maintenance in Ajax, ON or elsewhere in the Greater Toronto Area. Our maintenance program is different from what many other contractors offer.
We don’t send out whatever technician is next on the roster to go to your facility and simply go through a checklist. We set up a dedicated maintenance team to work with you, starting with an account manager.
The technicians who arrive at your business will already know your equipment and provide the exact services you need for the best HVAC performance.

You may have heard the term retrofit regarding parts of commercial facilities, such as a “lighting retrofit” or “electrical system retrofit.”
Is a retrofit the same as upgrading equipment or replacing older units with newer ones? And if it’s different, what are the benefits of choosing a retrofit over other options?
We’re worked on commercial cooling and heating in Pickering, ON and the Greater Toronto Area for more than thirty years, so we understand all the goes into making beneficial changes for commercial and industrial HVAC systems.
We’ll explain what retrofitting means and the ways it can benefit your commercial operation.

One of the most important parts of installing new commercial and industrial HVAC equipment is sizing it. To people unfamiliar with HVAC terms, this may sound like trying to determine the right physical size of the equipment.
But the “sizing” we’re referring to is the capacity of the unit to provide either heating or cooling (often both in the case of packaged rooftop units).
This sizing needs to take into account numerous factors about the facility.
When you schedule commercial or industrial HVAC installations/replacements with our expert technicians, they’ll go through several steps to size the new equipment so that it matches your facility’s requirements. Undersizing or oversizing equipment will result in inefficient performance and early unit failures.

Maintenance for residential homes operates on a straightforward schedule: it needs to happen twice a year, once in spring to attend to the air conditioning system, and once in fall to attend to the heating system.
This basic biannual schedule doesn’t work for many commercial and industrial facilities, however, for several reasons:
- The equipment in commercial and industrial facilities undergoes more work because it must handle comfort and process needs for a large area and a larger number of people.
- Because heating and cooling equipment aren’t used only for comfort, they often run during what is considered the “off-season” for a home. Heating and cooling are often necessary around the year to protect equipment and to facilitate the process. There’s little downtime for HVAC equipment.
- The types of HVAC equipment used in commercial and industrial facilities are much different than residential ones, including systems such as infrared radiant heaters, unit heaters, and make-up air units. These systems have different maintenance requirements.
