Now Is When to Sign Up for Customized Commercial Heating Maintenance

September 28th, 2020

corssed-wrenchesWhen it comes to commercial HVAC in Toronto, ON, maintenance is the most important service we provide for our customers. Maintenance is key to ensuring steady operation of a facility without interruptions due to climate changes or indoor air quality fluctuations because of failed equipment, and maintenance also keeps efficiency from sliding and equipment from failing years too early. It’s impossible to overstate how much about the operation of a facility—from heavy industrial to light commercial—depends on the reliability that regular professional maintenance provides.

Now that we’ve entered the fall, it’s time to schedule heating maintenance for your facility. If you have “gotten by” with making a call to a local HVAC company that comes to your business once and runs through a checklist on your equipment, you are not receiving the full equipment maintenance necessary. Only a customized maintenance plan can give you the assurance you’re getting the most benefit from these inspections and tune-ups.

September 14th, 2020

commercial-air-duct-largeWe are a full-service commercial and industrial HVAC contractor, and that means we can offer extensive services you won’t find at all commercial HVAC companies. One of the most important of these services we provide for our clients is customized ductwork sheet metal installation in Toronto, ON.

When we design ventilation systems for buildings, either as part of new construction or a retrofit-remodel-renovation, we use both pre-fabricated pieces and customized sheet metal ductwork. There’s always a place for prefabricated parts, but it’s rare for a facility to be able to have a practical ventilation system with only these off-the-shelf components. A house can manage with them, but a commercial or industrial space has more complex requirements and variables.

Below are reasons to always go with a commercial/industrial HVAC contractor who can offer you customized sheet metal ductwork installation:

Why Consider Rooftop Unit Installation for Your Commercial Heating

August 31st, 2020

commercia-HVAC-unit-cloudy-skyWhen it comes to commercial heating installation in Ajax, ON and the Greater Toronto Area, our team is able to handle any job. Heating is a special challenge here in Toronto because of the long winters and heavy snowfalls. In fact, concern about snowfall is what often makes commercial facility managers feel hesitant about installing rooftop HVAC units to provide heating. The exposure to the elements makes it sound like a rooftop packaged unit is a risk.

But rooftop HVAC units are the most common way to provide climate control for facilities. You only have to look at buildings in Toronto to see all the units installed on the roofs of buildings. Why is the rooftop heating (and air conditioning) installation advantageous, and why do we do so many for our clients?

Finding the Right Commercial Air Purifiers for Your Business

August 3rd, 2020

commercial-air-duct-largeClimate control inside a commercial building is only one part of maintaining conditions that are conducive for process as well as the protection of the health of employees, clients, and other people in a facility. Proper indoor air quality control is essential: from humidity to the removal of dust, the air quality inside a building must present no obstacle against running your business from day to day.

Why Server Room Cooling Is Different Than Other Commercial Cooling

July 20th, 2020

thermometer-going-redThe job of a commercial air conditioning contractor in Toronto, ON covers many different tasks. A contractor who handles residential air conditioning has a single, straightforward job: provide cooling for a house that keeps its residents comfortable. Commercial cooling is far more complicated, since comfort isn’t the only goal. It’s best to think of commercial air conditioning as general cooling and climate control rather than comfort, since businesses rely on temperature control for different reasons.

One of the essential jobs of commercial HVAC is server room cooling. Most businesses have a server room or computer room of some type; even small offices need to have a server room to store vital computer and telephone equipment. What is the best way to cool down these rooms? It’s not as basic as having a standard air conditioning system blow cooled air into the server room. We’ll go into why server room cooling is different and requires special consideration from licensed commercial HVAC pros.
