Clear communication using video and photo reports
Decision-makers aren't always on-site; they could be down the road or even in a different state. That's why we leverage video documentation during service calls, ensuring complete transparency. This unique approach allows anyone involved to witness the issue firsthand, in real time, without the need for ladders or physical presence, enabling swift decisions for rapid repairs.
Not limited to repairs, we utilize this documentation for commissioning new units and ongoing inspections. As a result, every invoice is accompanied by a video or photo report! Using visual documentation builds trust by offering a digital record of our work. Our goal is to simplify communication and keep everyone seamlessly aligned, regardless of their location.
We recommend a minimum of every eight weeks or between each cycle. However, the higher the MERV rating the more often you need to change your filters. Always refer to your equipment's manufactures specs for their minimum recommendations.
Washable filters do save you money, but a washable filter is a MERV 4 rated filter at best. MERV 4 is known as a rock catcher. In other words, your washable filter is catching only large partials, which means your coil and blower wheel are catching the rest of the dirt. A dirty coil and blower wheel leads to poor equipment performance and will cost you more in the end, in cleanings then using a proper filter.
The majority of HVAC equipment is built with the same parts, making most units very similar. For us to help you choose the right equipment we need to know what is most important to you: Cost? Energy usage? Best warranty? Built in dehue? Availability? Performance? Top of the line? Rebates? Color? Once we understand what is important to you, we can help you make the right decision for your facilities needs.
Figuring out the right amount of cooling and dehumidification that you need means we have to do some load calculations. If someone is telling you need a certain amount of cooling, but isn't providing you load calculations, then you are in need of a new contractor or consultant. 5-tons of cooling doesn't actually mean 5-tons of real (sensible) cooling.
Your AC's first job is to cool, however anything that makes condensate is dehumidifying and removing water from the space! This can be accounted for in load calculations. Most equipment can be adjusted to get more dehumidification performance out of it. Some equipment can even be set up to dehumidify when it's not cooling. Pretty cool, huh!? Ask about how!!
Short answer, no! Most equipment can cool in the winter time with the right accessories! Cooling in the snow requires what is called "low ambient" controls. These are key to an AC's success half the year, most equipment out there is only rated for down to 68 ° F with out a low ambient kit!!! If you plan to cool year round, this will need to be addressed. We offer solutions to keep all types of equipment running when its cold outside! Ask us how!
Something to keep in mind, low ambient kits are great for winter, but aren't great in summer time. This means seasonal maintenance is needed when using low ambient controls. Depending on the low ambient controls your facility has, you may need to have your low ambient controls completely wired out for the summer time, while other forms of low ambient controls you only need to dial in for the summer & winter.
Yes, maintenance is paramount for success. All equipment manufactures will state their condensers need cleaned a minimum of once a year to maintain your factory warranty, and depending on your location you may need to clean them more then once a year. If your coils are dirty, then you unit can not transfer the heat out of your space properly, which not only makes you system less efficient, but will damage your equipment in the long run.
If you're keeping up on your filter changes and using a proper filter, then your indoor equipment should stay pretty clean for the most part. However, this does not get you out of doing basic maintenance.
Do you like to save money? Then the answer is yes, you need a maintenance contract. We can not stress enough the importance of cleaning and maintaining your equipment. In our current world, where lead times are outrageous, you can't always bank on the parts you might need being on the shelf. The better you maintain your equipment, the longer and more efficiently it will run. Plus, most maintenance contracts come with perks as well, like priority service, a cheaper labor rate, a discount on future service calls, and more.
However, it is very important you understand exactly what you are getting with a maintenance contract. Some companies will promise you that parts and labor is included in your contract on anything they can fix, but this company will also be quick to condemn a piece of equipment so they can make more money off of you. If you don't understand what your contract includes, do yourself a favor and ask for a quote from another company.
