Cooling Towers and Chillers Combine for Powerful Cooling

Monday, September 3rd, 2018

industrial-rooftop-pipesAir conditioning is a word that’s often misunderstood when it comes to the industrial and commercial world. People think of ACs as small systems sending out cool air to provide comfort. But the job of conditioning industrial and commercial spaces often involves systems far different from the air conditioning systems people are used to. For many large facilities, it takes the combined work of chiller and cooling towers to deliver the consistent lower temperatures that make work even possible in the first place.

We’ll look at the partnership of the chiller and the cooling tower in industrial/commercial buildings.

When Late Summer Weather Is Too Much for Your Commercial AC

Monday, August 20th, 2018

thermometer-going-redWe’ve experienced a hot summer here in Toronto, and we can expect the temperatures to remain high for the foreseeable future. These conditions place a huge workload on any type of cooling system—but especially for the air conditioning system for a commercial or industrial facility. An air conditioner is not only doing the work of cooling off personnel, clients, and customers in a facility, it also must manage climate control to protect equipment and process. This is one of the reasons commercial and industrial ACs are more complex than residential air conditioning: a commercial AC handles multiple jobs, and the risk of a loss of cooling puts more in jeopardy than just stopping people indoors from sweating.

But what happens when all this summertime pressure overwhelms an AC, and suddenly you’ve not only got sweat but the threat of failing equipment and an operational shutdown?

Custom Sheet Metal for a New Commercial HVAC System

Monday, June 25th, 2018

 

System of ventilating pipes

A typical ventilation system set-up in a commercial or industrial facility consists of pre-fabricated duct sections that are fit together as best they can to serve the space. This allows for fast installation of ductwork during new construction, but it is almost never the ideal way of doing it. The space dictates how the ducts should be laid out, but when the ducts are all pre-fabricated there is little flexibility for putting in ducts in a design that will optimizes airflow, air balance, and conditioned air distribution.

The better route for new duct installation during construction is to have a contractor put in customized sheet metal ducts. Not all commercial and industrial HVAC contractors have the facilities, means, and training to do this job. But we do!

Hesitant About Replacing Your Commercial AC System?

Monday, June 11th, 2018

commercial-hvac-fans-in-rotationRunning a business of any kind involves making numerous decisions both large and small on a daily basis. Making a choice to upgrade or replace a large part of a facility’s air conditioning system definitely falls in the “large” category: most commercial facilities need cooling of some type in order for them to operate. Cooling can be necessary to protect equipment (such as in vital server room cooling), facilitate process, and provide comfort to employees, clients, tenants, etc. Failure of the air conditioning equipment or ineffective/inefficient performance will have a major negative impact on running your business.

Of course, taking the step to make major changes to older, out-of-date cooling equipment can be expensive, and you may be reluctant to make the change immediately.

Arrange to Service Your Rooftop AC Units Before Summer

Monday, April 30th, 2018

thermometer-going-redMaintaining the proper climate inside a commercial facility with cooling units isn’t only something to worry about during the hot weather of summer. The heat created in facilities from the equipment inside them often requires cooling systems. For example, server room cooling is essential for most businesses, even small ones, and it’s necessary around the year.

However, summer brings extra challenges for facilities where air conditioning is an essential part of comfort for employees, clients, customers, tenants, etc. This makes it essential to have maintenance service for rooftop air conditioning units before the hot weather arrives. The weather in Toronto is still cool, but it won’t remain that way for much longer—and you don’t want to get caught with any non-working air conditioning equipment when the summer weather strikes.
