What happens to Big Box Retail Stores when they Close? You recycle!

We are helping U-Haul recycle old Kmart buildings in Southern California into storage facilities for consumers. This process includes converting the old inefficient HVAC systems into efficient HVAC systems. Storage temperatures in specialties storage need to be maintain and done efficiently. This takes the knowledge of RAM Engineering to covert and retrofit systems to meet the needs of U-Haul. Gas flows, water flows, air flows and electrical flows must be in balance and this takes Physics. This takes the knowledgeable technicians at RAM HVAC & Engineering!

Coils and Corrosive Sea Air


Did you know that in Southern California coils are usually the first item to fail due to the corrosive nature of Sea Air? Ram Air Engineering can tackle diagnosing and replacing any size coil in Southern California. Make sure to have a team of experts like Ram Air Engineering replace your coil vs. waiting for a leaky coil too! A loss of refrigerants is expensive and if you wait for a coil to become leaky it could cost you. When should I replace my coils? Ram Air Engineering suggests that you replace your coils every 10-15 years.

San Diego Commercial HVAC Company Installs Pelican Wireless Thermostat Systems at the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Dieguito

Having recently completed installation of the Pelican Wireless Thermostat systems at two San Diego locations of the Boys and Girls Club of San Dieguito, San Diego commercial HVAC company, RAM Air Engineering is excited to work with their new client.


According to Boys and Girls Club of San Dieguito COO, Andy Brosche, RAM Air’s HVAC technicians were very thorough in their installation of the new Pelican Wireless Thermostat systems and he is very pleased with the results. Not only that, he was impressed with the newfound ability to monitor the building’s HVAC by controlling the package units from his tablet or phone. With the addition of remote statistics and historical graphical data, Andy and his team are now able to control temperatures at the space instead restricted to the location of the main thermostat as well as view the past energy use of each unit. Additionally for such a technical wireless HVAC thermostat system, our San Diego Commercial HVAC technicians were able to complete training on the use of the Pelican Wireless Thermostat system in less than 20 minutes.

Another great feature of installing a commercial Pelican Wireless Thermostat system is participation in RAM Air Engineering’s new maintenance program to reduce filter changes from quarterly to tri-yearly, which ultimately, reduces filter waste and cost of program. To participate in this maintenance program all the client needs is upgraded Tridec 3 ply filters and Pelican controls which is good for package units from 3 ton to 100 ton boxcar type units. With the Pelican Wireless Thermostats in place our HVAC technicians at RAM Air Engineering can monitor notifications pushed from Pelican and respond to problems before they become major issues.

RAM Air Services Irvine Ranch Water District’s Thermal Energy System

Continuing their long-standing relationship with the Irvine Ranch Water District, RAM Air Engineering has recently serviced one of the IRWD’s energy-efficient, industrial thermal energy system.
Aside from its recent overhaul including the replenishment of the glycol solution, this particular industrial glycol system has been in operation and serviced by RAM Air professional HVAC technicians for the past 15 years. In addition to proving itself as a great conservation project, the core purpose of this thermal energy system is to produce ice at night to use during peak hours during the day to cool the building. This has allowed the IRWD the ability to conserve their energy by 50% over the years.
Southern California commercial HVAC company, RAM Air Engineering has the experience to service all types of thermal energy systems for industrial and commercial applications. In addition to repairing ice shaving to ice over tube to water volume tanks, RAM Air has also supplied divers to make underwater repairs for large water holding tanks for a (2 million gallon) thermal energy system.

San Diego HVAC Company Installs Ice Machine for Polar Exhibit

San Diego HVAC Company, RAM Air Engineering and their team of 24-hour emergency HVAC technicians has solved many difficult and unusual heating, ventilation, and air conditioning problems for clients in the past. However this latest project for longtime client, the San Diego Zoo might be the most memorable yet.

Providing flaked ice for the Polar exhibit was a huge labour intensive process for the zoo. Not only was the ice made off-site at another location and transported to the zoo, the quality of snow dropped off during transportation. Rather than use the previous method of importing ice, the zoo contacted our San Diego HVAC company to remedy the issue by installing two Hoshizaki Flakers ice machines to produce snow directly in the exhibit.

In order to protect the new ice machines from the Polar exhibit’s feisty inhabitants, RAM Air’s experienced HVAC technicians built two custom, stainless steel uni-strut supports and mounted them onto the uneven rock formations.  This was accomplished by making cuts into the rock for our uni-struts, creating a level surface for proper critical operation. With the safety of the polar bears in mind, our technicians also used Hilti epoxy for the main concrete anchors to support the 350lb ice machines hanging over the exhibit.  In addition to the structural installation, RAM Air’s team installed a main and secondary water filter to prevent any type of water quality failure.

Instead of the previously labour intensive process that compromised ice and snow quality, RAM Air Engineering has successfully solved the zoo’s unusual HVAC-related issue. We’re happy to announce the two Hoshizaki Flaker ice machines are producing 2,200lbs of flaked ice every 24 hours and the polar bears have given our San Diego HVAC company and commercial HVAC services two paws up for the great work.
