What to Know About Commercial Heating
You might already be aware of the numerous residential heating systems on the market today. Many are combustion–based, meaning they run on natural gas or some other type of fuel, such as a gas powered furnace. These systems use up a lot of energy generating heat, and are ideal for many spaces throughout Birmingham, AL.
However, commercial spaces are different. Many commercial buildings and businesses are so large that it would take a massive amount of fuel to heat the space. For this reason, the majority of commercial heating systems are actually heat pumps. A heat pump operates similarly to a standard central air conditioner. However, it can reverse the flow of refrigerant, enabling it to work as both a heating and an air conditioning system for whatever season it is.

In order to get the best return on investment for your commercial heater, there are some steps you should follow to ensure that system stays in good shape. First off, you should always get preventive maintenance done once a year for a heating system. Given the increased demands of a commercial space, you may even want to have it checked more often than this.
Preventive maintenance sessions allow your commercial heater to stay in the best shape by allowing our HVAC technicians to find and repair any issues that exist before they grow into much bigger problems. You’ll find that you can save quite a bit of money on repair costs over the lifespan of the system simply by staying on top of maintenance. Ask about our maintenance program, the Comfort Zone Service Agreement.
Does Your Commercial Heater Need Repair?
Of course, even with the most diligent maintenance, repair needs may still crop up. It’s vital that you call for repairs ASAP. The longer you wait and the problem goes unaddressed, the worse it can get and the more money it’s going to cost to repair it. The sooner we can get to the problem and fix it, the better off your system, and your bottom line, will be.
It’s important, too, to remember that commercial heaters do have an expiration date, just like any other major appliance or piece of equipment. If you notice your system is costing more and more to operate, breaking down often, and is 1–2 decades old, it may be time to consider an upgrade.
