Dr. B and Cooling Tower AC
Your Trusted Source for HVAC
The Cooling Tower Way
I’m Dr. B and I like to think that the Cooling Tower Way combines my experiences growing up as the son of a well-respected accountant in a small Wisconsin town plus lessons learned from my time in the Nuclear Navy. And by that I mean treat your customers right and do the right thing, plus always take an engineering approach, professionally record and log your work, dot every “i” and cross every “t“.
Air Conditioning Services
Residential HVAC Services
Basically, Cooling Tower Air Conditioning represents commercial-grade technical know-how and professionalism for your home’s AC system.
And this goes for every aspect of residential HVAC service: design, installation or replacement, repair, and tune-ups.
In fact, we are the only residential HVAC company on the island that installs new factory systems to factory-required specifications, so that YOU, as the new owner, receive the manufacturer’s lifetime warranty and performance guaranty. Seriously.
See, the manufacturers will only guarantee the specified performance and warranty the longevity of the system if it’s installed right. And by that, they mean installed to engineering-grade standards. And we do exactly that here at Cooling Tower Air Conditioning.
We also contract out with a professional handyman service to ensure that all our work looks top-notch, too. That means not only is the equipment installed plumb, level, and square, but that all of the vents and vent holes, as well as all of the plumbing – everything is done cleanly and sealed up and given touched up paint and patch work.
And, of course, we provide family-friendly and Dr. B-approved tech’s who respect your home and your time. Our techs arrive on time and in uniform to do all work, installations, repair, and tune-ups.
Commercial HVAC Services
Cooling Tower Air Conditioning does light commercial work to include initial installation or replacement as well as service plans for restaurants, retail stores, schools, grocery stores, convenience stores.
As part of our commercial work we have the insurance coverage for working on larger commercial projects, to include working on rooftops, aloft, helicopters, use of cranes and other large scale equipment required for HVAC&R work.
We take a true engineering approach for system design, and we are particularly proud of our our ability to develop predictive maintenance plans and lifecycle planning. Proper preventative maintenance keeps your systems running optimally, both in terms of energy use and uptime. This minimizes or eliminates the need for any emergency service or downtime of equipment.
We also use and install solar-thermal panels for commercial air conditioning and all refrigerated storage needs. This provides our customers with substantial solar tax credits for any new installs while also reducing the electrical consumption for those systems.
Consulting & Design of HVAC&R Systems Maintenance & Lifecycle Plans for HVAC&R Systems Installation & Replacement of HVAC&R Systems Maintenance & Lifecycle Plans for HVAC&R Systems Consulting & Design of HVAC&R Systems
Our system designers will meet with your project engineers for planning out new or replacement systems.
We want to ensure you get the best possible system for your needs, taking into account cost, use, noise levels, environment, longevity, need for redundant or back-up systems, etc. We can help you plan to stay in accordance with any funding or 0agency requirements (e.g., state, federal, FEMA, grants, prevailing wage).
We’re happy to discuss any plans, drawings, project details, RFQs or RFPs you may want to send (even if they’re only ideas drawn on a bar napkin). Please send to [email protected] I’ll be happy to arrange a time to meet.
We can be hired on either an hourly or project basis for design. If you already have your design completed and want to talk to us about installation, we’re happy to meet with you free of charge.
Maintenance & Lifecycle Plans for HVAC&R Systems
We LOVE lifecycle planning. We think every business should use it for their HVAC&R systems. With lifecycle planning, we provide a detailed map for your system, to include required preventative maintenance and anticipated corrective maintenance for the total lifecycle of your system, to include planning for eventual replacement of the system. While we are executing your lifecycle plan, we utilize predictive maintenance methodologies to monitor, measure, record, and evaluate performance and wear on every component of the system in order to ensure your system is performing and wearing according to plan, and to correct for any unusual performance or wear signs with corrective maintenance or modified preventative maintenance schedule. This not only extends the life of your system and prevents breakdowns, but ensures optimal performance and reduced electrical use throughout the systems entire lifecycle.
We measure, record, and analyze:
• heat signatures of all motors and compressors
• amp draw on all electrical components
• inspect for and measure corrosion
• difference in potential energy between dissimilar metals
• wear patterns in any rotational mechanical equipment
• wear patterns in belts
• contact surface pitting in electrical contacts and controllers
• build-up of foreign materials on equipment surfaces
In order to:
• Synthesize wear patterns and equipment replacement timelines
• Modify preventative maintenance plans and schedules as needed
• Anticipate breakdown in equipment
• Troubleshoot increased cost of operation
If this kind of geeky, technically excellent maintenance is what you’re looking for, we need to talk. Seriously. I love talking about
this stuff. Call me direct 844-888-4468. If I don’t answer, please leave a voicemail and I’ll call you right back. Installation & Replacement of HVAC&R Systems If you already have your design completed and want to talk to us about installation, we’re happy to meet with you free of charge. Our project engineers and pricers can take your plan to develop take-offs to ensure we have everything we need such as a work breakdown structure and task and material list to ensure installation is done properly and completed on time and on budget. Then our field supervisors will develop an action plan and punch-list for a timely and technically excellent installation or
replacement of your HVAC&R systems. Our factory-trained installation technicians use the latest industry standards for installation, plus cooling tower AC SOP, the typically exceeds industry standards – all to ensure that your system is installed to last as long as possible, as quiet as possible, and perform up to factory specifications.
All of our installations are designed to actively prevent the need for any early-stage corrective maintenance. For all replacements, Cooling Tower AC ensures old equipment is properly disposed of, in accordance with government requirements and environmental standards.
Please send your designs to [email protected] I’ll be happy to arrange a time to meet and discuss your installation.
Maintenance & Lifecycle Plans for HVAC&R Systems
To us, maintenance is either corrective or preventative: either we’re fixing something that’s not working properly, or we’re working to ensure it continues to function smoothly without interruption. We do both kinds. And for preventative maintenance, we’re happy to provide that as part of a comprehensive lifecycle plan.
In our experience, if you’re shopping for a commercial maintenance provider it’s because:
1) Your current maintenance provider isn’t doing their job
2) You haven’t previously done maintenance, but you know it’s time
3) You’re buying a new piece of equipment or system and want to ensure it lasts as long as possible
4) You are contractually obligated to rebid your maintenance contract and are looking for competitive quotes
We’re happy to help customers in any of these situations. Please contact [email protected] We’ll be happy to have a sales engineer take a look at your needs and develop an extremely detailed, custom quote. Lifecycle Planning
