Is a Commercial AC Also a Server Room Cooler?

Monday, March 20th, 2023

This is a common misunderstanding people have about commercial cooling systems. People are often more familiar with the residential air conditioning systems that cool down their homes, and extend that knowledge to commercial cooling.

There are many overlaps when it comes to residential air conditioning and commercial air conditioning in Whittier, CA. Refrigerant-based split systems are common to both, and the packaged units found on the rooftops of so many commercial buildings are sometimes used for smaller homes (although they often aren’t on the roof). But commercial systems are larger, more complex, and more varied because they must target a range of different needs within a facility. This is where we get to server room cooling.

Monday, March 6th, 2023

Spring is around the corner and with it, allergy season. Just because you have four walls and a roof over your business space, it doesn’t mean that the air indoors is going to be the right quality. And there is nothing like a sneezing fit or itchy skin to ruin someone’s concentration.

Investing in a commercial indoor air quality system means investing in better comfort for clients, customers, and employees. Here’s what you should know about your IAQ system options and the benefits they can bring to your space.

It’s Never Out Of Season To Consider Server Room Cooling

Monday, February 20th, 2023

Have you ever walked into the house of someone who plays video games on their PC? You likely noticed that the heat from that computer alone warmed the house on a cold day. This gives you a real-life example of just how much heat computers and internet servers can generate.

Most commercial businesses utilize some form of technology. If you’re a business that uses a larger amount of network server resources, you likely need a server room. And, if you didn’t know this already, those servers will produce a lot of heat.

Heat and computer servers don’t mix. So if you need to install a reliable server room cooling system in Whittier, you’re in the right place to get started.

What’s Wrong With Your Ducts?

Monday, January 9th, 2023

If you aren’t familiar with the ductwork in your home and what it does, we want to give you a small crash course. The ducts in your house serve as the delivery system for all the temperature-controlled air produced by your duct-based comfort system. When you run your ducted heat pump, central AC, or furnace, the air that these systems create is pumped through the ducts and vents and into the rooms around the house.

As you may have guessed by now, a problem in your ducts means a problem with your comfort.

Ducts can wear down over the years, the same as your home comfort systems can. The difference is that your ducts are out of sight so you can’t assess their condition. Plus, leaks or holes are much harder to find than issues like a broken fan! Here’s what you need to know about duct issues and how to handle them.

The Importance and Potential Hazards of Your Furnace Heat Exchanger

Monday, October 17th, 2022

When we talk about gas furnaces, it can sound like we’re saying that they are dangerous. This is not the gas–gas-powered heating systems are not inherently dangerous. However, when they’re not properly cared for, certain components within them can become dangerous. In particular, the heat exchanger.

In a gas-powered furnace, the heat exchanger is where combustion gasses collect in order to heat the air. And if these gases are allowed to escape through a damaged heat exchanger, your household could be exposed to harmful fumes, like carbon monoxide.

Read on to learn more, and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you suspect you need furnace repair.

Monday, October 3rd, 2022

If you don’t keep up on HVAC industry news–and most homeowners don’t–you’ve likely missed a pretty big update.

As of January 1, 2023, lower SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) AC systems will begin to be phased out in favor of more efficient, and more expensive, air conditioning systems.

If you’ve already been considering it, then the answer is… now. Of course, if you have a newer air conditioner, then replacing now might not make much sense. But if your air conditioner has any of the following symptoms, it’s time to give us a call!
