For commercial buildings, ventilation can be complicated. Depending on the business, like the ones here in Sulphur, LA, ventilation can be serving a 10,000-square-foot industrial warehouse or a 2,000-square-foot, one-office building. For either of these scenarios, and all the ones in between, the purpose of ventilation is the same—transporting air between the inside and outside of the building via sheet metal ductwork. Though the purpose is the same for different businesses and buildings, where it diverts and get complicated is how the ventilation is designed, installed, maintained, and serviced.
Trouth Air Conditioning and Sheet Metal is knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to commercial ventilation needs. Call us whether your existing ventilation equipment needs repairing or replacing or you’re moving into a new building and need something custom designed. Our goal is to help you obtain the best indoor air quality (IAQ) and greatest comfort for your business.
Design and Installation
Installing a new commercial ventilation system of sheet metal ducts, whether it be a replacement or a brand-new installation, requires a solid design as its foundation. Different reasons to consider replacing your current ventilation are inefficient layout, corrosion, extreme gaps, leaks, or dents, or blockages. There is a masterful installation process to be followed to ensure the highest efficiency and performance.
Knowing where to implement the sometimes-needed sharp turns in a duct run is based on years of experience. Those sharp turns can definitely decrease your ventilation’s efficiency and run up your operating costs. To avoid these issues, a careful design and installation with the latest energy-efficient technology is required. This will result in cost savings for you overall via lower energy bills.
Service and Maintenance
Your ventilation system supports your building’s HVAC system and needs to be maintained, just as your HVAC system does. Damaged ductwork in any capacity should be addressed immediately so as to prevent further damage to the ventilation’s surrounds, like construction or insulation. Leaks, corrosion, or dents can easily snowball into a bigger issue costing you more money in the long run, which doesn’t serve to protect your investment. Having your ducts evaluated and checked for leaks also saves you money—leaking air is leaking money.
Hand in hand with maintenance for damage and leaks is maintenance for clogged or dirty ventilation ductwork. Be sure your ducts are cleaned regularly to avoid higher energy costs. Your ducts control the indoor air quality of your building. Having the exchanged air circulated through clogged or dirty ductwork stresses your HVAC system (as well as your lungs), thereby resulting in increased energy costs, as well as possible increased HVAC maintenance.
Designing and installing, maintaining, and servicing your commercial building’s ventilation system needs to be performed by trusted professionals. Air quality and your investment are too important to be left to someone without the experience and knowledge to back up their work. Too much can go wrong, costing you.
