When the temperature drops outside, this is when you need your boiler the most.  If the system breaks down, not only is it inconvenient for your employees and customers, it disrupts your business. We know how important it is and how much stress it creates. That’s why you should count on Desert Tech Air Conditioning & Heating for timely boiler repair services. Our knowledgeable technicians know how to diagnose and fix problems with your commercial boiler. We’ll work quickly to get your boiler running again with the least amount of disruption to your business.

Common Commercial Boiler Problems in the Desert

  • Frequent Breakdowns — Causes disruption to heat and disruption to your business.
  • Lack of Automation — Weather can change quickly and it's hard to respond to changes manually. Not responding quickly can use excess energy and cause discomfort. Desert Tech has many solutions for this problem, including Energy Management Systems.
  • Water Leaks — Any piece of equipment that handles water is likely to spring a leak eventually. Commercial boilers are no exception. If you’ve started to notice puddles of water around your boiler, call Desert Tech Air Conditioning & Heating.
  • Strange Noises — Your commercial boiler will most likely let you know that repair is needed by making new noises. If you hear a grinding sound from your boiler, it could be the pump motor bearings. If you hear a squealing noise, it might be that deposits or minerals have built up inside the pipes.
  • Not Enough Heat — This is one of the most common problems to occur. Sometimes the cause can be a bad control thermostat, or the thermostat that measures the temperature of the water inside the boiler. It could also be a bad pump motor or a water leak.

When you experience any of these or other unusual signs from your commercial boiler, call Desert Tech Air Conditioning & Heating.

Commercial Boiler Installation Services

Selecting the right boiler for your business is not easy. With over 35 years of commercial boiler experience, Desert Tech Air Conditioning & Heating are here to help.

We do not assume that your old commercial boiler when it was installed was sized correctly to achieve maximum efficiency. Instead, we take the time to size your new heating equipment. It is essential to keep in mind when selecting a new boiler the size of the space you need to heat.  A boiler that is too small will struggle to heat your business effectively, while one that is too big will cost more to buy, install and operate.

The Desert Tech Air Conditioning & Heating engineer will determine the size of the boiler needed for your business.  We size the commercial boiler based on your budget, operating goals, and ROI.
