The Specialized World of Commercial Heating and Cooling
It takes a true specialized heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professional to adequately address the needs of a Oak Brook and Chicago area commercial building. In a home, there are only a handful of types of equipment the expert could run into.
That’s because the needs in a Illinois home are universal—the home has to be comfortable for living. In commercial, you could run into an infinite number of combinations of components, controls, types of equipment, and access issues.
At Amber Mechanical, we take great pride in our capabilities to address the needs of all businesses large and small. We also have the knowledge and experience to know when to call in specialists to focus on unique challenges or issues.
As you can imagine, there are stringent codes and regulations involved in commercial HVAC. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), their OSHA Technical Manual (OTM) specifies workplace hazards and controls to help keep the workplace safe. Our Amber Mechanical team works hard ensure we meet our part of the OSHA standards, as well as all federal, state, and city ordinances and codes.
From medical buildings to manufacturing to even the zoo, there is a large spectrum of needs in commercial properties. When choosing your commercial contractor, you want peace of mind the qualified contractor you select will do the job right the first time. Here are a few situations to consider in the commercial HVAC world.
A Glimpse Into the Office
In a standard Oak Brook and Chicago area office building, you have dozens to hundreds of different components all working together to address the comfort needs of dozens to hundreds of employees. You have employees and tenants moving and reconfiguring the layout all the time. There are offices overheating due to the sun, cubicles with too much or too little airflow, and thermostats hidden by office plants for visual aesthetics.
At Amber Mechanical, we get it. We can and will adapt your system to the ever-changing requirements of your building and maintain all of these factors. As a result, you as the owner will receive the best possible return on investment (ROI) on your HVAC equipment and can keep your employees or tenants comfortable and happy.
The Restaurant Menu
One of the most common commercial businesses is restaurants. With the diverse specific demands a restaurant places on the commercial heating and cooling professional, the expert really needs to be well trained and experienced. There’s no room for error here.
Commercial kitchen hoods and restaurant HVAC equipment have to be properly working, balanced, and maintained or you can run into a world of problems for the restaurant, their customers, and even neighboring Oak Brook and Chicago area tenants.
Commercial Control Systems
Most people are familiar with their Illinois home’s wall thermostat and maybe even have a couple throughout their homes. In a commercial building, thermostats are a completely different animal.
They could be a single-zone system with just one thermostat to each HVAC unit, though more than likely they are interconnected throughout the building and connected to a much larger HVAC unit. This larger unit would feed the entire building, working with smaller units throughout for proper air distribution at the appropriate temperatures.
Once again, it takes a highly knowledgeable and experienced commercial expert to work on these types of control systems. Without the proper training, someone working on your system is much more likely to do expensive damage than fix a comfort issue.
Focusing on Indoor Air Quality
These days, the need for clean air is on top of all of our minds. Indoor air quality (IAQ) in a commercial space requires precise engineering and design to help facilitate the building’s comfort. In addition to your comfort, a property’s indoor air quality directly affects the health of its employees or tenants.
Without the aid of an effective indoor air quality system, the indoor air can contain damaging particles and toxins. At Amber Mechanical, we understand this and can design a system for your Oak Brook and Chicago area commercial or industrial property that will improve your air quality without sacrificing comfort.
