Why a New Heating Installation May Already Need Repairs

Monday, November 27th, 2017

question-mark-badgeYou took time during the fall to have new heaters installed for your commercial building or industrial facility. It could be new rooftop units, boilers, radiant heaters, or unit heaters. Whatever it was, you depended on the equipment working correctly during another rough Toronto Winter.

And here it is… and the heating system isn’t doing what it should. Perhaps it isn’t doing anything at all. Why would new equipment fail so rapidly after it was installed?

Before we look into what’s behind the trouble, make sure you know where to go to get it fixed. Whenever you require commercial heating repair in Oshawa, ON or elsewhere in the Greater Toronto Area, call on us. We have the skill and experience to see the best job gets done every time.

Maintenance Is Essential for Commercial Geothermal Systems

Monday, November 13th, 2017

geothermal-loopsBoilers and cooling towers are expected for many commercial and industrial buildings. But they aren’t the only ways to provide proper environmental controls throughout the year. Commercial geothermal systems are types of powerful heat pumps that rely on the thermal energy drawn from the ground to deliver comfort to a facility or business. The heat pump either draws thermal energy from the ground to provide heat, or it changes direction to use the ground as a heat sink where it can deposit thermal energy removed from the building.

The secret of the process—that is, the reason it offers such reliable indoor temperatures while costing less to run than many other industrial/commercial HVAC systems—is that the geothermal loops access a relatively stable temperature in the earth. No matter the weather conditions above ground, the temperature in the earth below the frost line remains stable, around 10°C, which is more than enough to work for both heating and cooling requirements.
