San Diego HVAC Technicians Solve Long-Time Issue at San Diego Zoo

Using a bit of problem solving and creativity, RAM Air’s San Diego HVAC technicians have solved a long-time commercial HVAC issue at the San Diego Zoo.

Southern California HVAC technicians solve problem at San Diego Zoo

Just as companies are invested in the health and comfort of their employees, the San Diego Zoo cares for the wellness of it’s staff and animals. Due to overhanging trees near the Warner office units, debris would fall from overhead and become lodged in the coils of the air conditioning unit, requiring frequent and extensive cleaning.

Instead of allowing this problem to persist for the client, our San Diego HVAC technicians came up with an ingenious solution involving the installation of special netting above the cooling unit and a Tridim 1-ply filter.  The combination of the overhead netting and special filter serve to effectively provide condenser protection by preventing debris from the overhanging trees from entering the air conditioning unit. Furthermore, when the condenser fan starts up, it blows the debris from the netting above onto the ground for easy clean up.

Commercial HVAC Contractor Installs Free Cooling System for the Huntington Beach Hilton

Regardless of the season, a critical aspect for any southern California hotel or commercial building is temperature control through heating and air conditioning. As a commercial HVAC contractor for more than 30 years, Ram Air recently completed a free cooling system installation at the Huntington Beach Hilton.

In the HVAC industry, a free cooling system refers to an approach to lowering the air temperature in a building by using naturally cool air instead of mechanical refrigeration. This is particularly effective in winter as it enables the hotel to shut off the chillers and use the cooling tower to regulate the air inside the hotel. As well, the free cooling system acts as a back-up for the hotel, if their chiller goes down.

In the end, not only is free cooling more environmentally friendly, it also benefits the bottom line in terms of energy cost. For the Huntington Beach Hilton, this particular free cooling system was paid within 12 months in energy savings alone!

Emergency HVAC Services for Southern California-based Stone Brewing Co. in Escondido

There are no signs on Stone Brewing Co.‘s headquarters in Escondido, CA according to co-founder, Greg Koch because “if they want our beer bad enough they will find us.”

Recently, Ram Air was contacted along with two other companies to provide emergency HVAC services at the plant. As the first commercial HVAC contractor to respond, Ram Air’s service technicians found that Stone Brewing’s bottling line was down due to the chiller. This critical HVAC component maintains a 28 deg F glycol loop to lower the temperature of the beer down for bottling, which in turn, reduces foaming during the filling process.

Our skilled emergency HVAC services technicians quickly found the problem, replaced the part needed, and Stone Brewing Co. was back to business, filling again.


Commercial HVAC Contractor Services the San Diego Zoo

As a commercial HVAC contractor, Ram Air service technicians were recently called to the San Diego Zoo’s elephant sleeping quarters to provide a little cleaning and adjusting of their commercial heaters.

Like humans, elephants are sometimes not happy with the temperature of the commercial heater in their sleeping quarters. In order to “adjust the thermostat”, the elephants will toss dirt over 20′ at the overhead heaters, which clogs and ultimately, lowers the temperature.

See the photos below as the elephants watch contently at our technicians working and taking in all the details.
