Commercial Air Conditioning & Heating Services in Birmingham, AL
Business owners, developers and facilities administrators encounter many challenges as they work to balance their heating and cooling resources. Companies in Birmingham, AL, recognize the importance of partnering with an HVAC contractor who is experienced in every aspect of commercial heating and air conditioning installation, repair and maintenance.
Commercial HVAC Installation
Light commercial HVAC equipment is manufactured in capacities typically ranging from 5-25 tons. The heating and cooling load requirements in a commercial building change significantly depending on the prevailing weather conditions, building occupancy rates and production process heat generation. Commercial load calculations based on ACCA Manual J are essential for determining the capacity of the equipment.
When the installation phase of the project begins, our mechanics pay careful attention to the duct system, which is always designed according to ACCA Manual D. This helps ensure the same performance at the source is delivered at the supply register. In commercial applications, your contractor should have experience dealing with tight construction schedules and other subcontractors. This is particularly important in new construction where confusion on the jobsite can cause delays and raise building costs. Quality commercial HVAC contractors always meet scheduling obligations, fulfill their contractual commitments and only request legitimate change orders.
For most companies, reliable heating and commercial air conditioning service is critical for ongoing business operations. As a general rule, service technicians are required to have more specialized training than their residential counterparts.
While residential service focuses primarily on comfort, commercial heating and cooling systems are usually integrated directly into the core processes of a business. This is particularly true for industries where maintaining specific temperature and humidity levels are critical for sustaining a productive business environment.
Managers and administrators understand the time critical nature of an HVAC breakdown. At One Source Heating and Cooling, our NATE certified technicians are equipped with the latest hi-tech tools to quickly identify the nature of the problem and implement the repairs required to restore full functionality.
Common commercial equipment problems include:
- Blown fuses
- Refrigerant leaks
- Faulty compressor
- Electrical problems
- Make-up air unit issues
- Economizer malfunction
Every business has a vested interest in avoiding an HVAC service interruption. A commercial air conditioning maintenance agreement can help eliminate expensive downtime and reduce the budget for costly repairs. It is important to select an HVAC contractor who has experience working on commercial equipment. A 20-ton, 3-phase package unit is more complex than a 3-ton residential split system. Commercial technicians undergo extremely rigorous training and testing.
At One Source Heating and Cooling, our commercial maintenance agreements incorporate many critical services designed to expose potential issues before they affect system performance. This includes inspecting and testing controls, filters, motors, relays, capacitors, burners, economizers, make-up air units and other vital system components.
