The Benefits of a Building Automation Solution

building automation solution

While our HVAC contractors work hard to bring the right solutions to homeowners, we also work hard to help commercial and industrial customers manage their facilities better. With our building automation solutions, we can help regulate the heat, air conditioning, and electricity that you use. With an automation system, you’ll enjoy:

A lower utility bill

When it comes to heating, air conditioning, and electricity, you probably use all of them more than you need to. With a building automation solution, automated controls will be able to learn your system and determine how often your heat or air needs to run and how often your lights should be on – all of which can save you anywhere from 20% to 40% on your utility bills.

Constant comfort

With the perfect amount of heat or air conditioning at all times, you and your workers will constantly stay comfortable (and you won’t have to deal with complaints).

A smaller carbon footprint

Having a building automation solution is a great environmental choice – especially if you’re someone who likes to “go green.” The automated controls will help your building use less power, which means you’ll reduce your carbon footprint.

Increased property value

The value of most commercial buildings is largely based on its operating income; when you lower your utility bills, you increase your operating income. This means that the larger your operating income, the more your property is worth.

Improved productivity

It’s hard to work productively when you’re too hot, too cold, or don’t have enough light. With the constant comfort that a building automation solution provides, your workers will always be at the right temperature, and you’ll see an improvement in their productivity.

If you’re interested in a better way to manage your facility, contact the HVAC contractors at Oliver Mechanical. We’ll help you find the best solution.

5 Benefits of Commercial Duct Cleaning

Schedule Yours Today

People spend about 90% of their time indoors, which means clean air is a must. At Oliver, we provide residential duct cleaning to keep you and your family healthy, but we also provide commercial duct cleaning. Here’s how it can help your wallet, your building, and its occupants:

Airborne particle reduction

Indoor air can be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air, which means the occupants in your commercial building can be inhaling dust, dirt, mildew, pollen, smoke, fungi, and more on a day-to-day basis. A commercial duct cleaning can remove these particles and give your building cleaner air.

Improved productivity

Whether your commercial building is an office, a school, a hospital, a factory, or any other structure, clean air improves the productivity of the people inside. Students and faculty alike can focus and work harder when their environment is clean and air is easy to breathe.

Fewer sick days

When your air ducts are dirty, they can spread bacteria that cause sicknesses. As a commercial business, you want all of your employees to be healthy and working hard, and a duct cleaning can reduce the number of sick days that workers take.

Reduced energy costs

Just one millimeter of dust and dirt build-up can reduce the efficiency of your HVAC system by 21% (according to the EPA). Keeping your system clean can help maintain its efficiency and in return, can lower your energy bills.

Longer equipment life

When dirt, allergens, dust, and other particles build up, they can clog your HVAC system and cause it to fail. Regular duct cleanings can keep your equipment in top shape and running for years to come.

Interested in a commercial duct cleaning? Just leave it to the experts at Oliver! Our equipment is 99.97% efficient in removing microbial contaminants.


3 Reasons to Leave the Commercial HVAC Repairs to Us

Professional Repairs You Can Count On

Commercial HVAC Repairs

When it comes to commercial HVAC repair, even the most basic fixings can be very different than a residential HVAC system.

Turn Your Air Conditioner on Early

Be Prepared This Season

We know it’s not quite hot enough for you to have to use your air conditioner yet, but we also know that the last thing you want when it does get hot is an HVAC system that doesn’t work. That’s why, as HVAC repair experts, we recommend turning your air conditioner on for a few hours in the springtime to make sure it’s running smoothly.

By turning on your air conditioner early, you’ll give your system time to adjust to providing cold air instead of all the hot air during winter. You’ll also be able to make sure all of the equipment is operating correctly. Plus, running your air conditioner before you really need it will give you time to call us to take care of any HVAC repairs you may encounter.

Before you turn on your HVAC unit, refer to our checklist of things you should do:

1. Check the condenser fan: Make sure no debris is stuck inside the blades of the fan (such as dead leaves or twigs) and that nothing is blocking the fan’s airflow.

2. Replace your HVAC filter: Your current filter has spent all winter collecting dirt and dust, so start fresh with a new one.

3. Check the coolant lines: Inspect the lines to make sure their insulation is still intact and there are no leaks. If you see any damage to the lines, call our HVAC repair experts.

4. Clean your coils: Winter weather can leave your outdoor condenser coils covered in dirt and dust. Remove any debris around the coils, then use a garden hose to gently clean them.

At Oliver, we’d be happy to give your HVAC unit a proper inspection before the hot weather hits. Call us today or schedule an online appointment.


Is Your Business Running Efficiently?

commercial-hvac

As an employer, you want your employees to do their best every day of the week, because if they’re efficient, your business is efficient. Have you ever thought about your HVAC system, though? An efficient HVAC system not only means less energy that your business consumes, but it also means lower overall costs. When it comes to HVAC, you should have the same efficiency expectations for it as you do your employees.

Unlike a home HVAC system, a commercial HVAC system is extensive and requires specific knowledge, which is why at Oliver, you can trust us to make sure your HVAC system is running at its peak efficiency. Our commercial HVAC experts are professionally trained and will inspect its many workings to ensure that you’re getting the most from your system. We can help you not only streamline your comfort, but also streamline your operating expenses so that you can focus on your company’s profits.

We know what to look for and what to do to maximize efficiency. For example: did you know that upgrading your HVAC equipment from an 8 SEER rating to a 12 SEER rating can reduce your energy consumption by about 30%? Or that the best kind of thermostat is a programmable thermostat that automatically turns off your heat or air conditioning when no one is in the building? We want to help you save as much energy as possible to reduce both your carbon footprint and your monthly energy bills.

We can also inspect your air duct system to make sure the distribution of your heat or air conditioning is correct. If your duct system is off balance, it could overwork your HVAC system as well as make your employees uncomfortable (and when employees are uncomfortable, they’re not as productive). We’ll balance your system so that your airflow is accurate and everything runs smoothly.

As you may have noticed, there are many details in a commercial HVAC system that need to be addressed in order to ensure its efficiency. If you’d like our experts to inspect yours, give us a call today and set up an appointment.
