The language of commercial HVAC often sounds strange to people who aren’t in the field—something that’s true of almost any specialized field. But our commercial HVAC experts take pride in working closely with all our customers. It’s one of the reasons most of our customers stay with us for life. We want you to understand what’s happening with your HVAC equipment and what it all means. That way we can maintain great communication that keeps you in the loop.
One example of commercial HVAC lingo you have heard before is tonnage, as in “How much tonnage does a business need for proper climate control?” This sounds like we’re talking about the weight of an HVAC system, but we’re not. Tonnage refers to the cooling and heating capacity of a rooftop HVAC unit or other heat pump/air conditioning system. Finding the ideal tonnage for a commercial or industrial facility is a key part of the work we do.
