Investing in a better HVAC system for your center is smart. Properly maintaining it is even wiser.
It may sound simple, but not changing your furnace filters quarterly, or at least two times per year, could be costly to your operations.
Fresh filters increase furnace efficiency up to 80%.

Your compressor radiator on the roof (with the metal fins) leads to a series of pipes filled with refrigerant. It compresses the air and gives up latent heat.
Once clogged, the compressor becomes an efficiency sink. Once or twice a year, take a bottle of compressed air and blow the dust and grit out.Back To Top
We recently ran into a situation where a non-Stough HVAC contractor had botched the rooftop unit housing at a facility we were called to inspect.
The rack around the AC unit was not square or properly sealed, allowing a crack for outside air to get in. That caused water to run out of the plenum, leaking into the center interior.
It cost the owner a lot to fix.
