One of the many areas of commercial HVAC that we specialize in is the installation and management of building automation systems (BAS). These systems are a way to improve upon the energy management programs that already offer numerous benefits to commercial and industrial buildings. If you are a restauranteur, a standard energy management program will pinpoint where our team can upgrade and retrofit your equipment and put in place superior building controls. When you work with us, we’ll assign you a dedicated account manager so the new program is tailor fit for your needs.
We strongly recommend making installation of a building automation system part of your restaurant’s energy upgrade. BAS has benefited many restaurants by making the switch to a “smart” establishment.

August is often the hottest month in Toronto, and commercial facilities will have their cooling systems working at peak levels for long stretches. This makes it hard to imagine preparing HVAC equipment to handle cold temperatures and ensure that heating systems are in good shape. However, planning is an essential part of preventing major equipment breakdowns.
If you don’t have a maintenance plan in place for your commercial HVAC systems, we strongly recommend calling our office to set up one. We not only offer commercial air conditioning services in Toronto, ON, but our maintenance programs are designed to see to your facility’s HVAC needs around the year.

Air quality inside buildings is often three to four times worse than the air outside. This is the opposite of what most people think when it comes to air quality, which is that air pollution is what occurs outside.
The concern with indoor air quality is severe when it comes to commercial buildings. Equipment and processes in a commercial facility create a large number of airborne contaminants: carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, smoke, chemicals, even bacteria and mold spores. Proper ventilation is a necessity to remove as many of these pollutants as possible, but facilities often need other IAQ measures.

Cooling is an important part of most commercial facilities. Maintaining lower temperatures isn’t only useful for comfort control during summer Toronto weather. It’s also vital to have climate control around the year to protect valuable equipment and allow for process. You may not have realized how important some of these cooling services are for your business’ success.
Below are a few cooling services your business may need. If you aren’t sure what HVAC jobs your commercial facility requires, set up an appointment with our experts and we’ll develop a plan. We have more than 30 years of history serving the Greater Toronto Area.

We work with industrial air conditioning units in Toronto, ON, and have for more than thirty years. Installing, repairing, and maintaining these powerful cooling units are basic parts of our day-to-day job.
You’ll appreciate having trained and experienced industrial air conditioning technicians at work for you. You can’t expect this level of service from people who primarily work on residential air conditioning systems, because there are significant difference between the two types.

When you own and operate a business that relies on heating, ventilation, and air conditioning on a daily basis, it’s vital you have a relationship with a commercial HVAC contractor. You can’t depend on amateurs to handle your regular maintenance service or to come to your rescue when you have a problem like a failed server room cooling system or a complete loss of warm air circulation during the winter. Even simple residential HVAC systems must have a licensed professional to take care of them—and commercial systems are far more complex and intricate.
But not all commercial HVAC contractors in North York, ON offer the same level of service. There are many large contractors who serve the area but aren’t actually local. When you need assistance or to schedule service like installations, these companies will send the work out to whatever contractor in your area is available, sometimes from hundreds of kilometers away. But you can choose to work with a real local contractor in the Greater Toronto Area, like Advantage Airtech. Here’s why going local is your best option.

The climate of the Greater Toronto Area puts enormous strain on the HVAC system of any commercial facility. It’s not an easy task to take care of and properly maintain the vital commercial equipment used to control the temperature and air quality inside a building that’s necessary for process, comfort, and more.
Right now, with summer approaching, commercial air conditioning maintenance in Toronto, ON is of paramount importance. If you haven’t yet scheduled AC maintenance for your facility, we recommend that you not only arrange for this service with our technicians, but that you sign up for a complete and comprehensive commercial maintenance program. This way you’ll not only have your HVAC equipment ready for the summer, you’ll have a customized program in place to maintain it throughout the year, every year, every season.

The HVAC system for a commercial facility is one of the major sources of energy use—sometime the biggest source of energy use. It can be a challenge to find ways to lower operating costs and finding opportunities to save energy.
There are different strategies for improving commercial HVAC energy efficiency. On the extreme end, you can have an aging system entirely retrofitted with the latest in heating, cooling, and ventilation technology and special high efficiency units. This is the most expensive route, but for older facilities it may be the best option. Our technicians at Advantage Airtech Commercial can perform this retrofit so you receive the best results.
For a newer building, we recommend investigating commercial energy management in Toronto, ON.

If you’re debating installing heating for your industrial warehouse, you’re likely facing a few tricky dilemmas and tough questions. Heating a large space with a high roof is often much more expensive than heating conventional commercial spaces like offices and retail stores. Not only is cost a concern, but you’re probably unsure how best to distribute heat and what type of heating systems to use. Can conventional rooftop units do the job? Or are there better options when it comes to industrial heaters in Toronto, ON?

The best time to have the maintenance done for your commercial air conditioning system is during the cool weather of early spring. Most commercial facilities rely on cooling equipment of some type, whether it’s to provide comfort to employees and customers, or to stop the loss of vital data from equipment overheating. You may think more about your heating system because of the harsh winter in Toronto, but caution year-round can pay off in many ways—particularly in preventing loss of revenue because of a cooling system failure.
