Commercial Cooling: Eliminate Wasted Space with Rooftop Units

April 9th, 2018

rooftop HVAC unitsYour commercial HVAC system differs from residential systems in a number of ways. First off, it likely has to cool more space, and you might have specific cooling needs that must be met for your business to function as it should. For instance, perhaps you need to keep computer system from overheating, or maybe you are a manufacturing business and have specialized refrigeration needs.

Commercial spaces require specialized care and attention when it comes to HVAC installations and services, so it’s important that you use a company you can trust for the job. In most cases, we recommend the use of rooftop units when it comes to commercial HVAC in Houston, TX. These consist of multiple, modular, units placed atop your commercial space.

This may seem counterintuitive—exposing your air conditioner to blazing hot summers—however, commercial units are developed to handle these issues easily, plus they offer a number of benefits for business and commercial property owners.

dirty duct versus clean ductHow much do you know about the ductwork in your home? Probably not a whole lot, and we wouldn’t expect you to. After all, they’re hidden from view for a reason.

What If Your Heat Pump Won’t Switch Modes?

February 12th, 2018

white question mark on blue circleIt’s not quite time to switch your heat pump from heating mode to cooling mode just yet, but that time will come soon enough. And when it does, you’ll want to easily adjust your heat pump system so that it begins cooling as effectively as it heated your home all winter long.

However, we can’t guarantee that your heat pump will work accurately every time, especially if you skipped your maintenance appointment (this tune-up should be scheduled twice a year for heat pumps) or if your heat pump is aging and is about ready for retirement. If either of these scenarios are the case, then you might find that warm or lukewarm air is coming through your vents still when you try to switch over to cooling mode.

If this is the case, you’ll want to call for professional Sugar Land, TX heat pump services right away. In the meantime though, we’d like to tell you what’s probably going on with your HVAC system.
