What Makes Commercial HVAC Service So Different from Residential?

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Licensed contractors will always warn against choosing amateur for heating and air conditioning repair, maintenance, and installation, especially when it comes to commercial HVAC services. Commercial technicians are trained specifically to handle large commercial systems. Now, you may already know that a commercial heating and AC system is generally bigger than a residential unit. But besides that, what makes these systems so different? Why wouldn’t a residential technician be able to handle a commercial unit as well?

The fact is that commercial units aren’t just a little bit bigger in size; they’re much larger and far more complex. Commercial heating and air conditioning systems are designed to heat or cool spaces that have multiple stories or expansive floor plans. This means that many commercial units have a zone control system so that all of the clients, employees, and/or residents in the building can control their areas independently of the others. And while residential homes can have a zone control system installed as well, it’s certainly not as involved as a commercial HVAC system.

The control system alone needed for installing a commercial unit is quite intricate. This contains the gateway from the thermostat to the air conditioning and heating unit and all of the safety devices, zone control ports, and other electrical components involved therein. When a technician comes to service your unit, it should be simple enough to determine which switches manage which components quickly so that the necessary repairs can then be completed, but this is not an easy task for an amateur.

Someone who was never trained on complex commercial units will most likely take a longer time to perform repairs and handle maintenance as they must spend much of the visit searching for the different parts and controls and locating problem areas. And installation is quite a chore for the untrained eye since these systems are not only large and complicated, but they also are designed in a different way than the average residential unit. Residential systems may have an indoor and an outdoor unit, but a commercial system may be packaged, with all of the components, including the air handler, located outside, generally on the roof.

Why You Need to Schedule Professional Commercial HVAC Repair in Bergen County

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Because many commercial HVAC problems are not immediately recognizable, they are often allowed to progress for some period of time. Due to the fact that problems with commercial HVAC equipment tend to get worse with the passage of time, this can be a real issue. Luckily, there are some warning signs that you can spot that may indicate a need for professional commercial HVAC repair in Bergen County. Do not wait for a total breakdown. Take these tips into consideration and call DB Heating & Cooling the moment you suspect a problem with your commercial air conditioning and heating equipment.

One telltale sign that it may be time to schedule professional air commercial HVAC maintenance is a decrease in the efficiency with which the equipment operates. Pay attention to the costs associated with running your commercial heating and air conditioning equipment. If it seems like there is a spike in the cost of operating this equipment then there is a good chance that there is an underlying problem causing this inefficiency. Not only does this mean your system is costing more to operate; it also means that your commercial air conditioning and heating system is at an increased risk of damage. Schedule service right away.

Even minor inconsistencies with the quality of your commercial HVAC system’s performance can be indicative of a more serious problem in development. If your system is heating and cooling your property unevenly, call a professional commercial HVAC technician right away. There may be a problem with your air ducts or the air conditioning and heating equipment itself causing this problem. No irregularity should be ignored, no matter how inconsequential you think it may be. The development of odd sounds or the presence of strange odors during operation may not seem like that big a deal. However, they may indicate a more serious issue that you are unaware of.

The sooner you can have any commercial HVAC repair in Bergen County completed, the better. Do not put the comfort in your commercial property at risk. Let DB Heating & Cooling help you keep your commercial property comfortable reliably all year long.

Why Your Business Needs HVAC Maintenance: A Paramus Commercial HVAC Tip

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Have you ever walked into a business in Paramus whose HVAC system wasn’t working? It’s either too hot or too cold inside and you’re uncomfortable while you’re there. That isn’t a good impression. If you own a business or building in Paramus, you want to make sure that the HVAC system in your building is working well every single day that the doors are open.  At DB Heating & Cooling, Inc., we thought it would be helpful for our commercial customers if we put together a few reasons why regular maintenance is a good idea for your business.

Customer, Employee and Tenant Comfort

When you have people working, living or entering your building you want to make sure that they are comfortable. Whether they live, work or shop there, the climate in your building is critical to your success as a business.  Having a professional technician visit your building to regularly inspect and repair your HVAC equipment is a great way to make sure that it keeps running reliably and consistently.

Greater Efficiency

Over time, the HVAC equipment at your building in Paramus will start to break down. It’s a sad fact of life but eventually, this happens to everything. One of the best ways to slow down the ravages of time is to have your equipment regularly maintained. During the inspection of your building’s HVAC equipment, your heating technician will be able to spot small issues that could be hindering your systems’ performance. They can lubricate valves and fan bearings, change fan belts and blades and clean out debris that has accumulated on moving parts. Things like this go a long way to the overall efficiency of your HVAC system.

Reduced Repairs

Another great reason to get your HVAC system regularly maintained is the potential to reduce costly repairs. If you own a car, you most likely get the oil changed regularly and have it tuned-up. We do this to keep the car running as best as possible. The same principle is true with your HVAC system. When your heating technician is able to catch small issues early, you can keep them from developing into catastrophic and expensive failures later on down the road.

If you have own a building or office complex in Paramus, make sure that your customers, tenants and employees are comfortable as soon as they walk in the door.
