There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission.

Correcting the Record on Commercial Heat Pumps

October 3rd, 2022

When people think of commercial heating in Bozeman, MT, they probably imagine a giant, towering furnace that glows red as it burns gas or wood to produce heat for an entire building. These are images that we see often in horror movies and suspenseful television shows because of how ominous they look–but nobody can deny that a furnace does a great job of keeping a space warm. However, as the industry changes, so too must our outdated view on heating systems.

Furnaces are one of many solutions to industrial heating. When you’re heating that much space, it’s important to know about all of the options and which ones might be more affordable, especially as natural gas prices and electricity costs shift. In our neck of the woods, building owners might think that only a furnace can do the trick during our cold winters, but that’s not really the case anymore!

Keep Your Building Comfortable

September 19th, 2022

We’ve seen it time and time again–owners of a commercial establishment buying a portable air purifier to set up in their place of business. Whether it’s a restaurant or an office full of coworkers and employees, this just won’t cut it. Portable or residential air quality systems aren’t the same as commercial ones, and you can see this with some other industrial buildings that have to handle very serious concerns.

Think about a hospital or a museum! These buildings require precision indoor air quality control to the point where a residential unit could actually endanger patient lives or cause invaluable items to be destroyed. Now, your building might not be the same as a hospital or museum, but we’ve got a few reasons to talk about why commercial IAQ in Gallatin County, MT is so important. These systems are simply built differently, and they’re an important factor in keeping your building’s air clean.

Air Quality Testing: The First Step

September 5th, 2022

When you take a deep breath inside your home, how do you feel? Here are just a few examples.

Some people say their air feels “stuffy” which is usually synonymous with the word “dusty.” Dust has a way of making the air feel dry and stale, which is why the word stuffy makes sense. Other people might say that their air is “musty” which can be a sign that there’s some slightly foul odor permeating through the air of your home. This can be due to something like mold or stagnant water.

Why are we talking about this today? That’s a good question! Before you can make noticeable changes to your home’s indoor air quality, you might want to invest in air quality testing in Belgrade, MT. This can give you a good snapshot of the major contaminants in your air, and point you towards a solution.

What Are Modular AC Systems?

August 22nd, 2022

For commercial air conditioning customers, there are some big differences from residential services that we need to cover sometimes. Commercial establishments are just a lot different from residential homes, and the cooling systems that are required are just built differently. One of those aspects we’re going to cover today is the fact that air conditioning systems can be set up to be modular.

Modular commercial air conditioners are just systems that can be added to a space when it expands. This means that you don’t just have one commercial AC in Gallatin County, MT, but rather a whole set of modular air conditioners set up on the roof of your building to cool a large amount of space. This is especially important for warehouses and other large areas that require many tons of cooling power, we need to be able to add air conditioning units as demand increases.

Absolutely not! We want to be very clear that we’re always around to provide maintenance to systems that need them, especially high-quality ductless units.

But then if your next problem is identifying the best times to invest in maintenance, that would be spring and fall.

So, keep reading so we can discuss this in greater detail!
