Heat Exchanger Failures

Here are some pictures from our commercial service manager of a leaking heat exchanger we ran into in the field.  It’s important to keep your system maintained so you can detect dangerous leaking heat exchangers!

No Day Like A Snow Day!

Here’s a couple pictures from Tuesday of this week.  The snow didn’t stop our techs from getting out to help our clients!  We even did a rooftop unit replace for our friends over at Richmond Ford.

Found on a Commercial Service

Here’s some burnt wires we found on a commercial service call today.  It had the potential to turn into a dangerous situation!  This is why it’s important to keep your equipment maintained properly.  Call or e-mail us today to talk about a commercial preventive maintenance agreement!

Rooftop Unit Installation at Richmond Ford

Here’s a couple picture snapped by Mary in our office of an installation we did last week for our friends over at Richmond Ford.

We replaced a couple units in their service shop (where we happen to get most of our vehicles serviced!).  Call or e-mail or commercial team to find out what they can do for your company!



Weinstein JCC Gym Lighting Retrofit

Mitch Mitchell, our Commercial Service energy-savings expert, passed along this information on a project of his that we recently completed at the Weinstein JCC.

  • As you can see in the Before / After photos, the gym now has much brighter, attractive lighting.
  • Footcandle readings at Center Court went from 8 to 42!
  • The new lights are also more efficient… they use 55% less energy!
  • We were able to capture the latest Dominion Lighting Incentives, which covered 25% of the cost of the project.

If you’re interested in setting up an evaluation of your lighting and discussing the available upgrades and utility incentives, please call us at (804) 358-9333 or fill out our online contact form.

Dual Temperature Tankless Water Heater Installation

Here’s a photo from our commercial service department.  Most of you are probably familiar with tankless hot water heaters, but this is a dual temperature model.  It not only provides hot domestic water, it also supplies hot water to the building’s hydronic heating system… all with one efficient tankless heater!
