Temperature Zoning Tips for Your Business

What will commercial services do for your business profits and productivity? Make sure you are taking full advantage this climate control tool for your business.

Professional HVAC commercial services provide your business with the specialized tasks you need to increase comfort and functionality while decreasing your costs. Zoning is one of the easiest methods for achieving this. It’s also a job requiring an expert’s touch. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits your business can experience if you having zoning in place:

Common Sense Comfort Control

Commercial buildings are often large and contain various types of spaces: meeting rooms, offices, workshops, cafeterias, parking garages, storage space and more. Each of these spaces has its own needs for heating and cooling. Treating them all the same would be wasteful and inefficient. Zoning gives you the ability to control temperature and other comfort controls based on individual rooms or groups of rooms within a structure.

Increased Comfort

In a large commercial building, there are areas that are naturally warmer or colder than others. Sometimes, this is by design. The kitchen or workshop, for instance, might always be warmer than your bathrooms or offices because the work taking place in those spaces generates heat. If you gauge the temperature of your building as a whole, the people in your offices might always wind up feeling too cold. A zoning system measures the temperature of each space on its own to determine whether to turn up the heat.

Lower Bills

Funneling heat into a hot kitchen is an obvious waste of money, but HVAC systems don’t have the ability to think, unless, that is, you have a zoning system in place. While it may seem like magic, it’s not! A zone system helps your equipment determine what rooms need climate control, so they’re not wasting energy trying to heat a parking garage with open windows or heat a lab where workers are melting glass.

These systems provide the opportunity to save your company a great deal of money while also keeping your workers comfortable, but designing them requires the help of an expert team.

Let G+ S Heating, Air and Energy Services help you to design the ideal zone system for your unique business layout. Get in touch with us now to schedule a consultation for commercial services to increase comfort and cut costs for your company.

Fall HVAC Troubleshooting Tips

Know the best troubleshooting tricks to get your heating equipment up and running?

“Troubleshooting” makes heating and cooling solutions sound like the Old West, but there’s nothing dangerous about it. The following are safe and effective ways to determine why a system isn’t running the way it should. Sometimes, there are free, easy fixes homeowners can perform on their own. At other times, it’s important to call in a professional.

Low Blow

Whether your furnace won’t turn on or it’s blowing cold air, air flow could be the problem. Change the filter and make sure there isn’t a buildup of debris in the blower or other components. If the interior checks out, inspect the intake tubing. These normally are long sections of PVC piping bringing fresh air into the unit if you have a 90%+ efficient furnace. Sometimes, these tubes get blocked outside at the entry or at the point where they connect with the furnace. Check both ends of the pipe for obstructions. You might find it’s packed with leaves.

Power Struggles

Does your heat pump or furnace have its own fuse or breaker? Now that you think about it, do you even know? The heating and cooling system sometimes has its own electricity source away from the main electrical panel, usually in a light fixture above the unit or in a small breaker panel nearby. Make sure the breakers haven’t tripped and you haven’t accidentally bumped the power switch at the unit searching for those Halloween costumes in the attic.

Wrong Place, Wrong Time

Is your heat pump running non-stop, regardless of how warm it is outside? This is a common problem and often has a quick, easy and affordable solution. Some homeowners mistakenly think they need to change the fan setting on their heat pump as their needs for cool or heated air change. Instead, they wind up switching their unit to “emergency” mode. All this does is turn on the emergency backup heater, fueled 100 percent by electricity. The solution? Turn it back to the auto setting and allow your unit to get to work.

When troubleshooting doesn’t solve your problems, schedule a service call with our expert team at G + S Heating, Air and Energy Services.

Fall HVAC Troubleshooting Tips
HVAC Horrors to Keep an Eye out for This Halloween
Thursday, October 04, 2018

Haunted by these heating and air conditioning problems? Find out what you can do.

Avoid having a House of Horrors with these heating and air conditioning tips from the experts. Temperature changes sometimes create problems for your HVAC system, but you don’t have to accept defeat. We’ll cover the most common nightmares here and show you what you can do:

Your Furnace Is Shrieking

While it might sound like evil is afoot, the high-pitched wail coming from your furnace is probably a worn belt. It’s an easy, affordable fix. Still, if you’re not an HVAC professional, it might be best to call a professional to perform the work.

Something Inside It Is Scraping

We promise. There are no monsters in your furnace trying to get out. Most likely, the ball bearings have just worn out. You’ll need to shut down your unit and get a professional out to fix them as soon as possible.

Your HVAC Won’t Stop Rattling and Rumbling

Loose components inside your furnace cause vibration. The looser they are, the louder they get. A technician will lube and tighten moving pieces and check your system for worn components you should replace as part of a fall preventive maintenance visit. Unfortunately, if something breaks or becomes too loose, it can wind up breaking other parts of your heating system. It’s best to shut your furnace off and call a repair service for a phone consultation.

Your Heat Pump Is Icing Over

Finding your heat pump’s outdoor unit covered in a layer of ice is unnerving in any season, but especially so in an area known for warmer weather. Most often this happens once winter is in full swing and there is debris blocking airflow around the unit.

Try to clear them away and see if your heat pump begins working differently. Unfortunately, icing up during normal fall weather is a sign the unit isn’t defrosting. A bad switch or sensor could be to blame, so be sure to call a reliable repair shop for more information.

Experiencing some HVAC fright? It’s time to schedule a service call with our heating and air conditioning pros at G+S now.

The Definitive Checklist for a Transferable HVAC Maintenance Agreement
Thursday, September 27, 2018
man doing an inspection

When hiring an HVAC company, do you ask if they have experience in commercial services? 

Hiring Commercial Services saves you time, even if you have your own maintenance team. HVAC experts will have the tools and training to handle all of your HVAC maintenance and repair needs. When you choose a qualified company with expert technicians, you don’t have to worry about a visit leading to a long list of expensive, unnecessary repairs. 

If you’re shopping for an HVAC company to take care of your commercial services, here are a few things to look for that will let you know you’ve found a reputable company: 

They Have a Physical Location 

HVAC companies carry more tools and supplies than you can store in a van. One-man shows often purchase low-quality supplies off the shelf at the local hardware store. Professionals have access to durable, high-performance materials. 

They Have Insurance 

Accidents happen. A professional HVAC company will make sure you don’t wind up footing the bill. Insurance is also a requirement of certain supply partners. Investing in insurance is essential for technicians to deliver the best service possible. 

They Have Referrals

Don’t believe any company that claims to have a non-disclosure agreement with all of their commercial clients. If you wouldn’t think to draft one, it’s not likely anyone else would either. Request at least two referrals and don’t stop at securing the names and numbers. Follow up with them on the phone. 

Schedule a Service Call with the professionals at G+S, a company you can trust in the Kannapolis, NC, area. Our technicians are qualified, insured and ready to go to work for you to meet all of your commercial HVAC needs.
