Using Radiant Heating in Your Commercial Building

Monday, October 25th, 2021

Floor-heating-installationWe work with all types of commercial heating in Toronto, ON, and this covers a wide spectrum of systems.

Commercial furnaces also use forced air to provide heat. 

An alternative type of heating with many broad applications is radiant heating. In commercial HVAC, radiant heating embraces several types of systems that operate in different ways, so we have to be more specific when talking about how to achieve radiant heating inside a commercial space. In this post, we’ll look at some of the ways we can install radiant heating for a facility—the right type of radiant heating to match its needs.

Upgrading Industrial Heating Systems

Monday, March 29th, 2021

Industrial-ventilation-systemResidential homes have standard maintenance program calendars: maintenance for the air conditioner in spring and for the heater in fall. It’s not so cut-and-dried for industrial facilities where cooling and heating systems often work year-round and handle more jobs than simply providing indoor comfort for customers and employees. The heating systems in an industrial facility serve numerous functions and must operate during all seasons, making their regular maintenance essential in periods when everyone else is scheduling service for their air conditioning systems.

Is Infrared Heating Right for Your Industrial Needs?

Monday, December 7th, 2020

thermometer-going-redThere are several different methods to provide heating for process in an industrial facility. People often make the error of conflating industrial heating and heating designed for indoor comfort. The two are different, and the standard methods used to deliver a comfortable indoor climate for employees, clients, and tenants are often not useful for process and protecting equipment.

This is why relying on experienced professionals when it comes to any industrial heater in Ajax, ON is essential: a contractor who only handles commercial HVAC may lack the options necessary for climate control. One example is infrared heating systems.

Commercial Hydronic Heating: The Benefits

Monday, October 26th, 2020

radiant-heating-tubesThe term hydronic heating encompasses any type of heating system for a facility that uses the circulation of hot water to send heat into a space. The most common type of hydronic heating is a boiler system, although this is not the only way to heat and circulate water to terminal points. 

Although people commonly think of radiators as the method hydronic heaters use to distribute heat, these are rare today—especially for commercial systems. Baseboard heaters are more common, and the preferred method for the installation of new commercial heating in Toronto, ON is with in-floor heating. For new commercial construction, we often recommend our clients consider hydronic floor heating, which is one of the best methods available for providing heat to a large area with reduced energy consumption. Hydronic heating is suitable for numerous types of businesses and facilities, whether to provide comfort for people inside, facilitate process, and/or protect equipment and product.

Now Is When to Sign Up for Customized Commercial Heating Maintenance

Monday, 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.

Monday, 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?
