What to Do About Uneven Heating in Your Commercial Property

Monday, January 30th, 2023

Commercial spaces present big challenges when it comes to heating and cooling them. Even smaller commercial facilities are larger than the average-sized home and have far more people in them. Businesses often contain large, heat-creating equipment and have special climate requirements. For example, server rooms need to have specialized cooling and ventilation to prevent computer equipment from overheating.

One of the major challenges for commercial heating is ensuring proper heat distribution. A home may be able to get away with a few rooms that are colder than the others, but this isn’t something that should occur in a commercial space (unless by specific design, such as in a server room). If you begin to hear complaints about cold spots in your commercial business from employees, customers, clients, tenants, etc., it’s something you’ll want fixed. We’ll look at the ways our professionals can help improve your commercial heating in Covington, GA when it’s uneven.

Is Your Upper Floor Getting Too Hot When the Heater Is On?

Monday, December 19th, 2022

Heat rises. This is a basic scientific fact that most people learned in elementary school. It’s also a fact that can turn into a problem when you live in a two-story home. Heat moves through the floors to collect at the top of the building, creating too much warmth in second-floor rooms.

When you use a central heating system for your house, you expect the heater to provide an even distribution of warmth to all the rooms. But you may run into the problem of an overheated upper floor in your home when your heating system is running. You have the heater sending heat to both levels, and then heat from the lower floor rises to the upper floor, resulting in temperatures possibly too high for comfort.

Is this something you just have to “deal with”? Or are there solutions?

Any natural gas-burning appliance in a house has the potential to become hazardous. This is true of any appliance that burns any type of fuel. Electrical devices can create dangers from high voltage shocks or electrical fires. 

This is a way of showing that, although a gas furnace can present dangers for a house, it isn’t much different in that way than many other appliances you use regularly. Because of the power of gas furnaces, people often find them intimidating and worry about them more—but if they were significant dangers, they would never be allowed into residential homes in the first place.

Your gas furnace can create hazards for your house, but you can prevent most of them through some basic steps. Modern gas furnaces are built to high standards of safety, and with the proper attention, you can minimize the possible harm to almost nothing. That’s what we’ll focus on in the rest of this post.
