As a property manager or a business owner, it can be a hassle when your HVAC system stops cooling or heating.  Not only do you need to get it fixed fast with the correct parts, but you need to think about the comfort of your employees, your clients, and the customers that come to your facility.

Unfortunately, businesses that do not have the support and maintenance of a reliable HVAC contractor can find that they must close unexpectedly until service and repair can be completed. If planned for, this work can be scheduled after hours and prevent an office or plant shut down.

We offer commercial/ industrial/ institutional HVAC repair and maintenance services, as well as retail and refrigeration services, throughout Ontario.

Here are our tips for staying open.


Scheduling During Plant Shut Down, Non-Peak or Off Hours


If you only have one system, the last thing you want is to have it down for an extended period during business or operation hours. Make sure when needed that your HVAC company is willing to work during non-peak hours or during hours when your business or production is shut down. This may cost a premium but will minimize disruption, and better serve your business.

Scheduling your commercial HVAC technicians to come in benefits both you and the technician. They can execute their work without disruption and without having to work around a busy work environment. That means they can perform their tasks better and that the work is executed faster & safer. It’s a win-win!


Hire Professionals Only


This is an absolute must when you’re dealing with a complex HVAC system that needs repair work, do not consider hiring an amateur. It may end up leading to delays in the work and low quality work. You may end up creating more problems than you already have!

You also want to avoid hiring residential HVAC repair people, professional or not. The complexities of a commercial HVAC system will likely far exceed the capabilities of a residential repair technician. Only a skilled and trained commercial HVAC system technician is suitable to come in and execute this work in a timely and effective manner.

Major reputable equipment manufacturers and commercial installers are unquestionably the best option when it comes to minimizing disruption and extending the life expectancy of the equipment.
