Ah, the fireplace.

For years, this cozy, crackling area has been a place to gather friends and loved ones to sit and chat while enjoying the warmth of a flickering flame.

With the ability to customize the look, and without vent requirements, a firebox might be the perfect choice for those looking for classic coziness without all the headache.

Warehouse Air Conditioners & Heaters

Owners and operators of warehouse spaces can all agree that temperature control is a big challenge. Why are warehouses so difficult to both cool and warm?

There are several challenges to temperature control in warehouse spaces. Among them include:

  • Large open spaces
  • Garage doors that frequently open and close, allowing air in from outside
  • Ventilation quality and/or cracks and drafts can affect the heating and cooling as well

Air Conditioning and Humidity

Air conditioner problems with humidity

Throughout the summer months, you rely on your air conditioner to cool your home, office, or workspace. It is a must in order to get through the high temperature days where a fan just won’t cut it.

But if one day you notice a musty odor, moist air, or foggy windows, you may have a problem. And the culprit is likely humidity.

While air conditioners already remove some water vapor from the air, that is not their main job. If humidity levels are excessive, you may be placing undue pressure on your air conditioning system, putting it at risk for damage or other issues.
