Watch Out for These Troubles From Refrigerant Leaks in Your HVAC Equipment

Monday, November 8th, 2021

commercial-HVAC-unit-refrigerant-rechargeAlthough people connect the word “refrigerant” to devices that produce cooling, such as air conditioners and refrigeration equipment, refrigerant is often an essential part of the heating and cooling systems for commercial spaces. The standard rooftop units that most facilities use for climate control use refrigerant to both move into and out of the space. Under normal circumstances, refrigerant-based equipment will use the same charge of refrigerant through its service life—refrigerant circulates in a closed loop and does not dissipate through the heat exchange process.

Refrigerant can escape through leaks, however, and this is a common problem commercial facilities encounter, particularly with aging equipment. Corrosion will start to affect the copper refrigerant lines and allow the chemical blend to escape through even the smallest holes. Leaking refrigerant can lead to serious problems for your facility—some of which you may not anticipate.

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.

Facts About HVAC for High-Rise Buildings

Sunday, January 3rd, 2021

commercial-building-exteriorThe high-rise building helped transform business spaces in cities, but they also present special challenges for commercial HVAC. Evenly heating and cooling a tall building requires equipment able to move large amounts of heat transfer mediums (water, air) vertically, while also accounting for temperature differences at higher altitudes. Air quality is also an important factor: high-rises rarely have windows that can open on upper floors, so proper ventilation throughout the building is essential. 

We’re local experts when it comes to commercial cooling and commercial heating in Whitby, ON, and this includes extensive work with solutions for high-rise buildings. In this post, we’re going to look at several of the ways we can provide effective climate control and ventilation in a high-rise.
