How to Keep Your Commercial AC Bills Low This Summer

Friday, March 20th, 2015

Summer temperatures in Bloomfield average in the high 80s and low 90s, and your business’s air conditioning will usually stay humming every day keeping the workplace cooled down for the comfort and contentment of customers, clients, tenants, etc. Air conditioning costs are probably a large item on your quarterly budget during the summer, but you are probably paying more than you should.

The technicians at Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. have some advice for how you can save money with your AC during this summer. If you have further questions, or wish to schedule service for your commercial HVAC in Bloomfield, NM, just give our staff a call.

Ways to lower your commercial AC bills

  • Schedule spring maintenance: This is the key part of seeing that your commercial cooling system works at peak efficiency during the summer, without wasting energy. A commercial HVAC technician will come to your business and provide a thorough inspection for the air conditioning and then tune-up, adjust, and clean it where necessary. The technician will catch any impending repairs so you can have them fixed before the summer starts. These regular inspections and tune-ups will help an air conditioning system retain 95% of its efficiency throughout its lifespan, rather than experience a 5% decline over each year.
  • Install “smart” thermostats: One of the key ways to maintain energy efficiency for an HVAC system is by maintaining a temperature on the thermostat that is comfortable but not wasteful. In a home with a single thermostat, this job is simple. But for a business it is much more complicated. Installing new “smart” thermostat technology will make it far easier. These thermostats learn from your programming and create their own energy-saving program. Not only will smart thermostats help your business save on air conditioning, but you won’t have to worry about constantly monitoring it.
  • Only rely on professional repair services: Whenever your air conditioning starts to show signs that it needs repairs, always call on experienced commercial repair technicians. Going with amateurs or professionals who only have residential experience can end up damaging the AC’s efficiency, making it more expensive to run.

Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. has served businesses in Bloomfield, NM with commercial HVAC services for over a decade now. We want to help you lower your air conditioning bills this summer, and every summer after that, so give us a call today to arrange for the work that will help make your commercial air conditioning the most energy efficient it can be.

How to Select the Right Heating for Your Business

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

If you need a new heating system for your business, it may be difficult to decide which type of unit is right for you. In general, you can choose between two different modes of heating: forced-air heating and radiant heating. While a forced-air heating system (like a furnace) may be inexpensive to install as long as you have an existing set of ductwork, boilers can offer greater efficiency and comfort in some cases.

Choosing the right system is going to depend a lot on your preferences, the amount of usage your system will get, your monthly utility budget, and the size and structure of your building. Therefore, this likely isn’t a decision you can make on your own.

If you’re replacing an older system, however, it may be easier to figure out what’s best for your commercial heating in Farmington, NM.

What Type of Heating System Are You Using Now?

In general, if you’re replacing an older heater, you may want to stick to a similar unit, especially if that unit was working just fine at some point. It’s a very involved process to replace a boiler with a furnace, and vice versa. While initial boiler installation may take several days, replacing an older boiler should go a lot more smoothly. And adding a furnace to a property is difficult if you don’t already have a set of ducts for your heating.

You may be concerned about replacing your older unit with a similar model because your property’s old furnace or boiler was not as efficient or high-performance as you’d like it to be. However, you should keep in mind that today’s commercial heating units are far more efficient than they once were, allowing unsurpassed levels of comfort as long as your system and your ducts are inspected and provided that you choose professionals for installation.

Ask a Professional

Of course, the best way to choose the right type of heating system for your business is by asking an expert. Trained technicians are best qualified to assess your property to help decide which type of unit is ideal. The folks at Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. have years of experience installing, repairing, and maintaining forced-air units and radiant heating systems alike, and we’d love to be the company you choose to help select your new commercial heating system in Farmington, NM.

Watch for These Signs That You Need Commercial Heating Repair

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

For all the differences between commercial heating and home heating, there are a remarkable number of similarities when it comes to repair issues. Unfortunately, business owners can be just as ignorant as homeowners regarding recognizing the need for heating repair. Read on for a few of the more common commercial heating repair needs, and how you can recognize them.


Short-cycling is the name for when your heating system rapidly turns itself on and off throughout the day. This is caused by the heater control circuit shutting down the system as a safety measure to prevent overheating. When the heater turns on, the internal temperature of the unit reaches a level beyond the established safety level. When the control circuit registers this, it shuts the heater down in order to prevent a fire or further damage to the unit. After the temperature in the heater drops back below the safety level, the unit turns itself back on. The cycle repeats endlessly, as the safety measure doesn’t actually resolve whatever is causing the heater to overheat. In order to actually solve this problem, you’ll need to call a professional to look at it.

Increase in Heating Bills

Heating bills fluctuate as demand varies from month to month. However, you should pay attention to whether your bill either keeps increasing or spikes and doesn’t come back down. This is a sign that your heater is having to work harder than usual, which is caused by some sort of problem with the system. Most often, this is caused by simple cumulative wear and tear. As your heater ages, its individual parts will begin to wear out from use. These parts wear out at different rates, and usually take a long time to completely fail from normal wear and tear. Before that happens, however, parts will reach a point where they can no longer fulfill their role effectively. Your heater will still function, but it will struggle to put out the same amount of heat. It will stay on longer to compensate for the heat loss, which results in higher bills.

If your commercial heating system is having trouble, call Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to schedule an appointment today. We provide commercial heating repair services throughout Farmington, NM.

Why You Need Professionals for Your Commercial Heating

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

You’re very busy as an owner or manager of a commercial property. So when your commercial HVAC system is in need of repairs, you may feel tempted to simply flip through the phone book or run a quick internet search for a close and convenient heating technician. However, if you don’t choose a commercial specialist trained on large commercial HVAC systems, you simply cannot get the service that you need. Commercial services should only be left to professionals with large-scale commercial heating training. Take a look at a few of the services that go more smoothly when you choose professionals.

Commercial Installation

Commercial heating installation is a job that absolutely must be left in the hands of professionals. First of all, sizing a commercial heating system is an extremely complex job. Technicians must take into account not only the size of the building, but also the number of floors, the type of insulation, number and placement of windows, and many other factors. And without a working knowledge of large commercial HVAC systems, a technician may forget to adjust an important component, neglect any zone control needs, or install the system in an insecure manner.

Commercial Repairs

When you’re in need of commercial HVAC repairs, you need the job completed as quickly and thoroughly as possible. Choosing professionals for repairs means you’ve chosen a contractor already familiar with your type of system, who can quickly and easily locate all of the major components to diagnose the repair need.

Annual Maintenance

Another service for which you may require professionals is commercial HVAC maintenance. This is one of the most often neglected services available to business owners, but also one of the most important. During a maintenance visit, a technician cleans, adjusts, and inspects many of the components of your commercial heating system. This keeps your utilities low and prevents repairs as it ensures that everything is working in top shape. Your technician will also let you know if any component of your system is in need of repairs—but only a trained specialist knows exactly what signs to look out for.
