Special Factors for Commercial Air Conditioner Repairs

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Residential and commercial business use similar kinds of cooling systems, and although most are the same, they can have fundamental differences as well. These differences depend on the size of the workspace, type of AC unit, ventilation and budget for installation and maintenance. A commercial HVAC system lets your business control the climate of your work environment, in order to promote production, to make clients feel comfortable, and to keep sensitive materials in good condition. Whatever the reason, you need the guidance and expert skills of a commercial AC repair technician. One of our skilled technicians here at Cool Touch can help you!

If your commercial AC is no longer operating as quietly as it once did, or the cool air is not as cold as it once was, then it may need to be serviced, repaired, or even replaced all together.

In order to understand some of the factors involved in repairing your commercial air conditioning system, it’s necessary to take a look at some of the major differences between residential and commercial AC systems:

  • Size. In general, office and industrial spaces often require greater cooling capacity, especially if the business keeps long hours or requires 24-7 climate-control. Size therefore determines what types of AC units are being used in the space, which helps the repair team know what to look for.
  • Rooftop. Depending upon the application, commercial AC units are often placed on the roof of the building in order to be out of the way.  The placement of the condenser outdoor unit will often determine the approach of the repair specialist, and will inform him of the duct layout.
  • Controls. Depending on the size and the function of the AC, a commercial cooling system may come with a more complex set of controls than with a simple residential unit. It may involve multiple thermostats, zone-control and computer interfaces. More complex systems may be easier to diagnose because so much of the process is computerized, but determining problems in the mechanical systems may be more time-consuming due to the sheer quantity of components.

Don’t let your business and office space get too hot. Call a Phoenix commercial AC repair specialist at Cool Touch today.

Do Your Homework Before Buying a New A/C Unit

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

How much research do you do as a consumer before you actually make a big purchase? When it comes to replacing your a/c unit make sure you do your homework before you move forward with a purchase. Make sure you understand all the air conditioning components, sizing and how the system operates.

By understanding your air conditioner and how it functions may mean significant savings for you. Today’s best air conditioning systems use 30% to 50% less energy to produce the same amount of cooling as air conditioners made in the mid 1970’s. Even if your air conditioner is only 10 years old, you may save 20% to 40% of your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model.

The amount of money you’ll save will vary depending on usage, temperature settings and other factors regarding how the unit is operated. The benefits from purchasing a more efficient unit is unique for each household as new air conditioning systems have different SEER ratings. The higher the SEER the more expensive your investment will be, however, usually they’re much more efficient and have better warranties.

As you research, ask questions, contact a professional air conditioning repair technician to help you understand what is available.
