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.

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.

Regular Commercial Boiler Service Is a Must for Your Business

Monday, December 9th, 2019

The boiler is one of the oldest types of heating systems still in use in homes and businesses. Heating water and distributing it through a building provided central heating long before the creation of ventilation systems.

If your commercial facility has one or more boiler systems, these units probably serve multiple functions—something that sets them apart from residential boilers, which are only designed to provide comfort to people in a house. Your facility’s boilers may be part of process and manufacturing. Your business can’t continue to run, no matter the season, if these boilers malfunction or fail. Only seasoned, trained, and licensed commercial HVAC experts can handle the routine maintenance service to protect your investment in boilers and the operation for your facility.
