The Rise Of 3D Modeling In The HVAC Industry

One of the challenges in working on commercial and industrial HVAC installations and retrofits is the unique elements in the systems between buildings. Some of these building owners are interested in testing out different looks, options, and features in the HVAC system components.  It is one thing to be able to have a visual concept of these unique configurations of HVAC components, or even to create the components through CAD/CAM or other types of software programs, but it is quite another to actually manufacture the part or component.  Today, thanks to advances in 3D printing, creating a part or system

How To Prevent Winter Freeze-Ups In Commercial Building Piping Systems

In any area of the country where winter temperatures drop below freezing, piping system freeze-ups are a concern for a commercial building owner or manager. This is mainly a concern if freezing temperatures are paired with storms that knock out the power or create a challenge in maintaining above-freezing temperatures inside the building.  Of course, another issue to consider is the exposure of piping systems on the exterior of the building in the basement and sub-basement areas. Typically, these are the first areas to freeze, and with their larger pipe sizes, they can result in significant and costly water damage
