The Benefits of Fall Commercial HVAC Maintenance

Monday, September 27th, 2021

commercia-HVAC-unit-cloudy-skyWith October almost here, it’s time to think seriously about the change in the weather. Before you know it, the air will turn crisp and cool—and then suddenly it will be winter and the temperatures will plummet. Is your business ready to handle the seasonal change? Or, to be more specific, is your Cincinnati, OH, commercial HVAC system prepared to deal with the colder weather?

You don’t have to have an immediate answer to this. Few people who own or operate a business know the exact details of how their heating and cooling systems work. That’s why you have commercial HVAC professionals like us to handle the service. 

We can tell you this: an HVAC system isn’t prepared for winter if it doesn’t have fall maintenance. This is an essential step to protect your investment in your business.

Warning Signs You May Need Commercial AC Repairs

Monday, August 2nd, 2021

air-conditiong-units-on-roofThe signs of air conditioning problems in a house aren’t often difficult to spot. Residential ACs are smaller and handle cooling limited areas, so when anything goes wrong, it will result in quick changes in indoor temperature and humidity. Even if the trouble with the home’s AC isn’t causing temperature changes yet, it’s easy to notice something going wrong with a unit when half of its components are sitting in the house itself.

Commercial spaces face a different situation with air conditioning systems on the fritz. Commercial ACs are larger, more powerful, and modular, and may start to fail in specific areas of a business rather than the whole working space at the same time. Because commercial ACs units are usually housed entirely on the roof in packaged units (in other words, they don’t have major components housed inside the building), it can be tricky to pick up on faults right away. 

How can you tell the early signs of a faulty commercial air conditioning system so you know to call for repairs? Below we’ll go over three major signs to look for.

What Makes Commercial HVAC Repair Different from Residential?

Monday, July 21st, 2014

When you need to have repair work done for the HVAC system that keeps your business comfortable throughout the year, it is vital that you only call up technicians qualified for commercial work. No matter how talented a residential repair technician may be, no matter how experienced, if he or she has not done extensive commercial work or received the proper training, the job will not be done right, and your comfort and budget will suffer.

We will look at the ways that commercial HVAC repair in West Chester, OH is different from residential. Our team at Bartels Heating & Cooling has worked with both since 1973. We have high qualifications to handle any type of repair work you may need for commercial HVAC. We offer 24-hour emergency service, so we are always ready whenever your commercial heating and cooling encounters trouble.

The Differences in Commercial Repair Work

The most obvious difference between commercial and residential heating and cooling is size: the heating and cooling capacity for a commercial system must service a larger space and more people. But how does this affect repairs? One way is that commercial systems are modular, and often contain multiple packaged units to accommodate the needs of a large work space. A residential repair technician only has one unit to check, whereas a commercial repair technician must perform more extensive inspections to find which of the various units—and it might be more than one—is malfunctioning. The size of the system also means a more complicated series of dampers and thermostats; this intricacy of the system calls for specific training to remedy problems.

The majority of commercial units are packaged units, which means they contain all the components of a residential indoor and outdoor cabinet inside a single cabinet. Packaged units are configured much differently than other systems and require special training for their repairs and maintenance.

When doing repairs for a commercial system, a technician must have more in mind than maintaining comfort for the people inside the building. The system must also stay within local electrical codes. This is one of the reasons that you need to hire commercial specialists for your repairs, as you cannot take the chance of your building failing to stay up to code.

Schedule Service as Soon as You Need It

Don’t risk a breakdown in the comfort system that keeps your workplace viable for both employees and clients around the year. When the heating or cooling in your business appears in jeopardy, give us a call for commercial HVAC repair in West Chester, OH from Bartels Heating & Cooling. We can take care of your commercial comfort needs, any time of the day or night.
