What to Look For in a Commercial HVAC Technician

Monday, October 14th, 2019

Commercial work is much different than residential HVAC work. Commercial HVAC services can include different systems and processes which means that you’re going to want to be particular when looking for your next contractor. You need a professional technician who is experienced working in commercial spaces and who knows what they’re doing with the larger, more intensive rooftop units.

Don’t take any chances. We’ll guide you through some major points to ensure that you choose the best technician you possibly can for your commercial HVAC work.

Monday, August 19th, 2019

We live in a “do-it-yourself” culture. You likely know what we mean—you can find a video online to fix just about any appliance or piece of equipment in your home when it’s malfunctioning or even when it’s broken down completely. This includes your air conditioner, but we don’t believe it should!

There are components within your air conditioner that are very important, and damaging them while trying to do repairs can do more harm than good—like your compressor or evaporator coil. There are other components that are hazardous in the wrong hands and legally require the assistance of a professional—like refrigerant.

Is Professional Duct Testing Necessary?

Monday, February 18th, 2019

technician-working-on-ductsDuct testing is necessary when you either suspect or know for certain that your air ducts are allowing conditioned air to leak, or outside air to get in.

Your air ducts are what your central heating and air conditioning systems rely on to effectively do their jobs. They either cool or heat the air, and then blow that conditioned air through your network of ducts into the various rooms of your home. This ductwork system is most often located out of sight—behind walls, in the attic, and in other out-of-the-way locations that allow them to do their jobs without getting in your way.

We’ll get down to that below. First we want to talk to you a bit about how leaks happen and why they’re such a problem.
