Commercial Chiller in Denton, TX

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Pics 60 ton chillerWhen you need to cool large commercial and industrial spaces, you rely on your commercial chiller to reduce the temperature, especially when overheating can be dangerous to your products and applications. Hospitals, manufacturing plants, universities, and large commercial buildings are among the beneficiaries of energy-efficient commercial chillers. Chillers cool liquid through vapor-compression technology and they offer cost-effective solutions when conventional air conditioning would be inefficient. Because of the scale of their application and usage, commercial chillers are vital not merely to workplace comfort, but also to the temperature regulation of equipment and products. If your commercial chiller breaks down, it may need repair or replacement. Determining which depends on the circumstances of its application, condition, and age. But rest assured you can rely on the Denton, TX commercial chiller repair and replacement experts at PRK Services.

Here are a few of the most common problems with commercial chillers:

  • Noise. Depending on the size and model, commercial chillers do tend to make noise. And most business owners expect a reasonable amount of noise in exchange for the benefits of cooled spaces. But strange, unexpected, or excessively loud noises can often indicate a problem. For example, if you hear a hissing sound around your unit, there might be a refrigerant leak in one of the coils surrounding the evaporator valve. Rattling or excessive vibration are usually the result of loose-fitting pipes and connections, but they can be especially damaging to your system if left not repaired.
  • Chiller won’t turn on. One of the most common causes for a lack of ignition is a lack of power. A professional can ensure that your unit is properly wired and connected to a power source. Wires can be damaged by water and debris, and the can loosen over time, especially in exposed areas. This may also indicate a problem with your thermostat, which may need to be re-calibrated or replaced.
  • Leaks. It might be the refrigerant from the coils, excessive condensation in the system, or oil at the base of the unit, but leaks should not be left to fix themselves. They can indicate minor repairs and major replacements, depending on the age and condition of your system.

Commercial Refrigeration in Denton, TX

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Commercial refrigerator and beverage cooler - Dentron, TX - PRK ServicesAs every business owner knows, refrigeration not only makes things cold, it also holds valuable company assets. If you own a restaurant or grocery, or operate a cafeteria, you rely on your refrigerator to keep your food fresh before cooking and preparing. If you store prepared foods, you entrust your refrigerator with not only the cost of the food itself, but also the labor time it took to prepare. As the crux of the kitchen, the commercial refrigerator is heavily used, which means that it’s important to recognize when your refrigerator needs repair, and when it needs replacement. Call the Denton, TX commercial refrigeration repair and replacement experts at PRK Services today!

Determining whether to replace or repair is a diagnostic job best left to the professional, but if your refrigerator requires frequent repairs and over 10 years old, it may be time to invest in the future of your kitchen with a new energy-efficient unit. Here are some of the components of the commercial refrigerator, and the problems commonly associated with them:

  • Compressor. The compressor pumps the refrigerant through the various sets of coils. As the engine of the commercial refrigerator, it may eventually become problematic. If you find that your refrigerator no longer cools properly, or if you can’t hear the motor running, the compressor may be faulty. If you hear a whirring sound in the motor that sounds as though it’s straining, then it probably is. Serious compressor problems often require replacement.
  • Fans. Fans regulate the temperature of the fridge’s components. This is a necessary process in refrigeration because it works by extracting heat from the inside and dissipating it. If your fans are not working properly, your refrigerator can get very hot or stop working entirely. Fans can also become clogged with dust and debris, or be improperly wired.
  • Thermostat. The thermostat communicates your desired temperature to the components of your fridge. If it is faulty, your fridge may stop running. The severity of the repair depends on whether you have an air-sensing or evaporating-sensing thermostat, or whether your refrigerator uses a low pressure control device.

The Denton, TX commercial refrigeration experts at PRK Services can handle any commercial refrigeration repair or replacement you need. We offer comprehensive commercial services, from installation to maintenance. Call PRK Services today!

Commercial HVAC Repair Argyle TX: Do I Need a Backup Generator for My Commercial HVAC System?

Monday, February 25th, 2013

When you own a commercial property is your responsibility to keep that property comfortable throughout the year for all your employees, tenants, clients and customers. A high-quality commercial HVAC system paired with the services of a qualified professional can help you do this. Even the best products and services can run into unforeseen problems, though. If there is no power supply available for your commercial HVAC system to draw on you cannot expect your commercial property to stay comfortable for very long. Call PRK Services today for more information about a commercial HVAC backup generator in Argyle, TX.

Not every commercial property will require the services and advantages that a backup generator can provide. If your commercial property is in an area prone to power outages that last for any considerable amount of time, though, you may want to consider a backup generator installation. All heating and cooling systems require power to operate, and in the event of a power outage they will be of no use to you. This may not be a problem during a short power outage, but if the power should be knocked out for a few days – or longer – comfort levels will serious suffer.

A commercial generator can use fuel and convert it to electrical power to keep your commercial HVAC system up and running. The sizing of your commercial backup generator must be handled by a professional, though, to ensure that your generator can handle the demand that will be placed on it. An undersized commercial backup generator isn’t really going to do you or your tenants much good. Of course, a generator must also receive a professional installation for proper, safe operation. If you have any questions about how commercial generators work or their availability in your area call PRK Services today.

PRK Services offers exceptional commercial HVAC services throughout the Argyle, TX area. Don’t put the comfort of your commercial properties at risk. Call an expert commercial HVAC technician on our team for more information about commercial HVAC backup generators.
