When Is It Time to Repair Your Rooftop Unit?

A rooftop unit may be useful in both residential and commercial uses alike. Rooftop units combine all of the components of a heating and air conditioning unit into a single cabinet located on the rooftop, saving space so that everything is in a single location. This is convenient for a couple of other reasons as well. For one, rooftop units contain modules which means it’s easy to modify as your property goes through any changes. Furthermore, during any repair or maintenance visit, the technician does not interrupt the day to day operation of your property.

So when is it time to repair your packaged rooftop unit? Check with a technician anytime that you suspect there are problems with your rooftop unit.… Read more

An HVAC Maintenance Plan for Business: Is It Really Worth It?

Russell's Heating and Air ConditioningWhat’s a nightmare scenario you can imagine for your company during regular business hours? You can probably think of a few—and don’t want to—but here’s a particular one we want to draw your attention to: an AC failure on a 100°+ day. We get plenty of roasting hot summer days here, and whether you run a restaurant, a retail store, or an office space, a loss of cooling can mean a complete work shutdown.

Almost as bad as a loss of cooling when your business needs it the most is the fear that this will happen. If you don’t trust your AC to make it through the summer, you’ll be on the edge all the time. For these reasons alone, an HVAC maintenance program from commercial specialists is worth the cost.… Read more

3 Signs That You May Need New Commercial HVAC Installation

The summer is the period when you will have the most concerns about your business’ HVAC system. The temperatures in the Inland Empire and the other Desert Communities can often reach brutal levels, and an air conditioning system that fails on one of the hottest days of the year usually means major trouble for any sort of commercial establishment.

If the current HVAC system that keeps your business cooled down during the summer is an older one, pay special attention to signs that it has worn down to the point where you should schedule a replacement. Repairs sometimes can keep systems running a bit longer; a commercial HVAC specialist will tell you when it is more economical to replace a system rather than letting it limp along with continual repairs.… Read more

Why Install a Commercial Cooling Tower?

A cooling tower is a heat ejection device that cools water temperature and releases the removed heat straight up into the atmosphere. Some commercial cooling towers are simply immense, such as the 600-foot tall structures associated with nuclear power plants. However, you can also benefit from much smaller rooftop cooling towers, which are an extraordinarily helpful and often necessary way to remove the heat from industrial and manufacturing equipment, performing a job that a standard air conditioning system cannot.

Russell’s Heating and Air Conditioning offers full services for commercial cooling towers in Yucaipa, CA. If you want to install cooling towers, we have the equipment and skill to do the job. If you need your current cooling tower repaired, give us a call.… Read more

Why Are Rooftop Units So Popular for Commercial HVAC?

Although there are many different types of HVAC systems to provide comfort for businesses, most people are familiar with the sight of heating and cooling units located on the top of commercial buildings. These rooftop units are one of the most popular ways for a building to receive year-round comfort. If you are curious about why this is so, we have some answers for you.

The benefits of the rooftop HVAC unit

The first reason that so many property owners use rooftop units is to save space. In the early days of electro-mechanical heating and cooling, HVAC systems “migrated” to the top of buildings because the older downtown areas simply lacked sufficient space around them to fit a large cooling and heating unit.… Read more

Don’t Neglect Any Commercial HVAC Repairs You May Need

Russell's Heating and Air ConditioningBecause we enjoy warm weather through most of the year in the deserts of Southern California, it can be easy to take for granted the operation of heating and air conditioning equipment. There’s no hard line between the cooling season, when air conditioners put in the most work, and the heating season, when heaters turn on. The heating season is brief, and air conditioners still often have to put in work during the winter.

But if you own a business in the area, you can’t afford to ignore any possible issues with your commercial HVAC system, heating or air conditioning. A lot is at stake: comfort for employees, clients, customers, tenants, and protection for equipment. A home may be able to scrape past without heating for a few days if something goes wrong—but the impact on a business when the HVAC system falters can be immediate and severe.… Read more
