For most businesses, an HVAC system is a necessity, so you want to make sure that the one you choose will work well for many years. Rooftop units are a great choice for many commercial buildings. Their location keeps them out of the way so that everyone in your building can enjoy the benefit of year–round temperature control without having to deal with the noise or emissions of the compressor. In fact rooftop units have become so popular that it’s difficult to select the right one for any given commercial application without the advice of a trained heating and cooling professional.
If you’re interested in this type of unit for your Washington, DC or and Northern Virginia area commercial building, call Polar Bear Air Conditioning today. We have extensive experience working with these types of systems and we can offer you full installation, maintenance and repair services to keep your unit running smoothly for years to come.
Rooftop HVAC Unit Installation
We know that it’s important to you to have your rooftop unit installed with a minimum of disruption to the occupants of your building. That’s why we make sure to have everything in place as quickly as possible. We’ll work within the confines of your schedule as much as possible so that the work is done at a time that’s convenient for you.
During installation, we’ll help you decide what type of rooftop unit is best for your building – cooling only or a combination of cooling and heat. Many major brands offer multiple options for heating including staged and modulated gas heat, electric resistance heat, hot water heat and steam heat. Depending on your existing components, we can help design a system for you that will be as efficient as possible.
If you don’t already have ducts installed in your building, we provide full ductwork installation services. An air duct installation project can take a bit longer than an HVAC project in which the ducts are already in place, but you’ll find that our technicians are in and out in no time. Most importantly, you can be sure that the job is done right the first time so your rooftop unit will work well for years to come.
Because of the size and scope of most roof top units, the installation process will also include exhaust and supply fan integration and placement of your evaporator coils and drain pans. The exact layout of your rooftop unit depends greatly on the current layout of your roof, the cooling and heating load required for your building, and the brand you choose.
Rooftop HVAC Unit Repair
Over time, there will inevitably be times when a rooftop unit will need repairs. Call us as soon as you notice an issue with your unit and we’ll have someone out as quickly as possible to assess the situation and complete any necessary repairs. Even if we didn’t do your initial installation, we have the knowledge, skills and equipment needed to complete repairs on any type of rooftop unit.
Rooftop HVAC Unit Maintenance
The best way to avoid emergency repairs, though, is to keep up with regularly scheduled maintenance for your rooftop unit. The cost for these maintenance visits is relatively small, and they’ll save you plenty in repair and replacement costs in the long run.
Most manufacturers of commercial rooftop HVAC units recommend maintenance at least once per year. During a maintenance checkup, a skilled technician will complete a thorough inspection of your rooftop unit to make sure all parts are functioning properly. They’ll also clean out any debris or sediment that has built up over time and replace any parts that seem to be wearing down.
