How In-House Fabrication Helps Us Deliver Better Service

All of our years of service have taught us that the best way to deliver value to our clients is by being your single source of HVAC system solutions. To address this, we have structured our services to provide everything you will need from a single point of contact. This makes your projects simpler to plan and easier to execute. One of the ways that we have expanded our services is by developing and running our own in-house fabrication shop for ductwork.

As a versatile HVAC installer, we work in a variety of conditions and with many different raw materials. We saw the opportunity to enhance our services and to eliminate inefficiencies by creating our own metal fabrication shop. We did this so we could become a better service provider and pass on all of the advantages to our clients. Our HVAC fabrication facility comes with several benefits that make us the best provider for your business.

The Advantages Of In-House Fabrication

  • Time
    • The most significant benefit of having in-house fabrication in our facility is the time it saves both you and us. Using a contracted third party adds time to the overall project and another level of complexity that is unnecessary. We have a more efficient supply chain with few links in the chain between your project design and installation process.   
  • Quality Control
    • Contracting sheet metal ducts out to a third party, even a reliable partner, puts the quality of our work in someone else’s hands. With our own shop, we are able to deliver greater quality assurance and stand behind the manufacturing process that we manage. We are your single source for HVAC systems, and we are proud of the work we do.   
  • Lower Labor Cost
    • Without a third party, we do not pay the markup prices for the added processes at someone else’s fabrication facility. We are able to pass those savings on to you by lowering our overall costs. Operating within our shop also means we have our processes for managing your projects and equipment. This cuts down on any downtime or disruptions in your project deadlines.
  • Tailored Solutions
    • When it comes to heating and air conditioning systems, it is all about the efficient distribution of air throughout your facility. The best way to deliver those results is with systems that have been designed and developed with your unique requirements in mind. Our in-house fab shop enables us to provide solutions that are not one-size-fits-all.  
  • Reduces Waste
    • Being in charge of the complete fabrication process empowers us to reduce the amount of overall waste from any project. Less waste means lower material costs for you and a reduced impact on the environment. This is an advantage for everyone involved.
  • Ensures Compliance
    • Depending on your industry and location, there are different regulations and building codes that any project must abide by. SUI is already familiar with maintaining compliance with industry standards and federal regulations. Keeping our process in house means that we are able to exercise greater control to make sure all of your equipment and hardware meet your compliance needs.

The Benefits Of An HVAC Retrofit

The commercial heating and air conditioning system for your building is going to be one of your most significant investments over the life of your facility. Most standard systems have a life cycle that spans somewhere between 15 and 25 years, and when the time comes for a new system there are more options than just a straight replacement. In many cases, a high-efficiency commercial HVAC retrofit can save time and money while providing the level of service that your business needs.

The Benefits Of Retrofitting Your HVAC System

There is no perfect HVAC system that will last forever. Someday your existing system will either need to be replaced or retrofitted. Service Unlimited, Inc. has years of experience in retrofitting heating and cooling systems for a wide variety of facilities, from churches to manufacturing plants.

In this blog post, we cover the advantages of an HVAC retrofit and the ways it could benefit your business.

  • Energy Savings
    • Retrofitting existing systems is one of the fastest solutions for reducing energy usage. It is a quicker process than a complete replacement and can address chronic issues that have been dragging down your HVAC equipment’s efficiency.
  • System Longevity
    • An entire system replacement will deliver results, but it can be a costly and time-consuming process. Implementing a retrofit program to address defective or obsolete parts can give your HVAC system a whole new life. These strategies are designed to maintain your systems and give you more time to plan for that eventual replacement process.
  • Adaptability
    • Most commercial facilities change over time. You might build on an addition, renovate existing space, or add new structures. The retrofitting process will enable your systems to adapt to your changing needs. At SUI, we want your HVAC systems to work for you—not the other way around.
  • Improved Air Quality
    • Over time, older systems show signs of aging and a drop in performance, and some older HVAC equipment will become louder over the years. We want your heating and cooling equipment to be felt and not heard. A modern retrofit will deliver a quieter operation and a higher level of performance for your workplace. Providing comfortable workspaces is the most significant purpose of your HVAC devices; SUI is here to ensure they deliver.
  • Technology Upgrades
    • Technology is always growing and changing; the same is true for HVAC systems. You don’t want to miss out on new energy-efficient devices or ways of cutting energy costs because your system is too old or you can’t afford a total replacement. The retrofit process allows us to update your equipment to provide a system that runs consistently and productively.
  • Rapid Return On Investment
    • One of the major selling points of any HVAC service that we provide is that it will pay for itself in lower repair costs and increased efficiency. A retrofit will provide the same return on investment, but it does so faster than a total replacement or new HVAC installation.

There is no avoiding the fact that your HVAC systems will need to be replaced one day, but the retrofitting process from SUI can ensure that replacement is easier to plan for and is a less costly experience.

5 Advantages Of HVAC Preventative Maintenance

A significant part of our corporate vision at Service Unlimited is the idea of turning prospective customers into clients and those clients into long-term partners. The reason that we believe the greatest value comes from a long-term partnership is the nature of commercial HVAC systems. Like most pieces of equipment, they benefit from regular maintenance and that type is best performed by technicians that are familiar with your needs and HVAC services. This is especially true in commercial locations where the working conditions have a direct impact on the performance and productivity of your workplace.

Why Should I Be Concerned About A Preventative Maintenance Program?

Some building owners and managers might ask why they should worry about repairs when their systems are currently running adequately. This is reactive maintenance kind of thinking and it is an inefficient way of managing your resources. Just waiting until you have outwardly noticeable issues will end up costing you more in emergency repair services and the possibly lengthy downtime can disrupt your business operations. Commercial preventative maintenance works to get ahead of these problems proactively before they grind things to a halt.

The Advantages Of HVAC Preventative Maintenance

  1. Energy Savings: Someone might look at maintenance costs as a waste of their resources, but one of our maintenance teams can more than make up for those expenses in the savings we’ll bring to your energy bills. Maintenance plans and building operation requires thinking for the long-term and, over time, your various pieces of HVAC equipment will run more efficiently when they are well-maintained.
  2. Equipment Longevity: HVAC systems for any location are not a minor investment. Commercial HVAC systems are typically one of the most expensive parts of your building and you want to get the longest life possible out of them. A routine preventive maintenance schedule is one of the best strategies for promoting the longevity of your overall system. We will spot issues before they become problems and help you plan for any costs that are likely to come in the future.
  3. Productivity In the Workplace: The temperatures in the workplace will have a direct impact on the productivity of your workforce. A well-maintained heating and cooling system will be better for your business. Routine HVAC maintenance maintained by a service provider like SUI will also mean there is one less thing on your plate. You can stay focused on your work and let us worry about your HVAC systems.
  4. Improved Comfort: The whole reason we install air conditioners and heaters to make ourselves more comfortable no matter what time of year it is. An HVAC system that is healthy will provide a higher level of comfort across the board. Creating comfortable work environments is what we do, we are the experts you need to maintain it.
  5. Healthy Air Quality: One type of air pollution that few people think about is indoor air pollution. The truth is that the quality of your indoor air can have a direct effect on your health and the health of anyone else in your building. Air needs to be efficiently distributed and vented to deliver the indoor air quality that you deserve.

The bottom line is that HVAC preventative maintenance is better for you, your employees, and your business. Don’t let these needs go unchecked and partner with a team that has the expertise you need. Service Unlimited is equipped to maintain a healthy and safe working environment for you. Contact us today to learn more about our services.
