Cost Saver

Regularly scheduled HVAC maintenance will save you money by reducing energy bills, preventing costly breakdowns, and prolonging the longevity of your system. 

Energy bills can be reduced by up to 30% if your system is running at peak efficiency. In a commercial environment, thirty percent of your energy is a large savings! 

By keeping your HVAC system well maintained, major malfunctions are less likely to occur as any issues will likely be caught before they turn into anything that requires a costly repair and down time. This practice can also extend the lifespan of your system by keeping it healthy and running smoothly. 

Less Strain on the Environment

By keeping your HVAC system running at optimal efficiency, you not only save on your energy costs, you also reduce your green footprint by using less fuel! You can further reduce your impact on the environment by choosing a system fueled by natural gas and installing a programmable thermostat to reduce the amount of energy used in the off hours. 

Improved Air Quality

Air in a commercial building can be filled with many allergens such as pet dander, pollen, mold, dust, cigarette smoke, and many more. These pollutants can cause many issues for people who are sensitive to allergens and/or have respiratory issues. Preventive maintenance can help keep your air as filtered as possible, providing the occupants of your building with clean air to breathe!

Improved Safety

By keeping your HVAC system running efficiently you are far less likely to experience any malfunctions, keeping your environment safe. This will protect the people in your building, the assets, and the structure itself. Not to mention avoiding the hassle of dealing with unsafe and damaging conditions. 

A malfunction in your HVAC system can cause extreme temperatures in your building. If the building is unoccupied over the weekend and the system malfunctions, you could end up coming back to a very cold building with frozen, burst pipes or a very uncomfortably hot building with lots of humidity. By keeping your system well maintained, you can avoid these unsafe conditions. 

Carbon monoxide, an odorless gas, is extremely dangerous if it leaks out of the heat exchanger. According to the Center for Disease Control, low levels of carbon monoxide exposure can cause serious health issues and in higher levels can be fatal. Every commercial building should be equipped with carbon monoxide detectors to alert occupants if there ever is a leak. A HVAC preventative maintenance routine will generally include a carbon monoxide test as an extra layer of protection.

We will work with you to customize a plan to meet your requirements and the manufacturer’s recommendations. 

Laser scanning can be used to create 3D images for new construction projects, renovations, or any other building that needs highly accurate scanning and measurements. 3D laser scanning is used to capture data about an indoor space or an outdoor area from the real world and convert it into actionable BIM models.

How Does 3D Laser Scanning Work?

3D site and building scanning use LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) which involves shooting a laser over an area and recording the depth of the surface area. A pulse of laser light is scanned across an area and the amount of time it takes for the reflection to return to the scanner is recorded to create a representational point for where the pulse hit the surface of an object. These points are collected in the computer to create a point cloud. Point clouds are used to create specs for technicians, engineers, architects, and designers to use when working on construction projects.

What are the Benefits of Laser Scanning?

  • Very fast
  • Highly accurate
  • Minimize site visits
  • Reduce material expenses
  • Lower labor costs
  • Reduce rework
  • Minimizes project delays

3D Laser Scanning Services from MMC

Metropolitan Mechanical Contractors offers 3D laser scanning services for architectural firms and mechanical contracting companies to get the data needed to get a full understanding of a building’s inner workings or an outdoor space. We can provide scanning of mechanical rooms, data centers, food processing facilities, and more. We make it easy for companies who need to outsource 3D scanning to obtain the accurate measurement they need to complete projects seamlessly, on time, and on budget.
