Commercial Heat & A/C Repairs & Installation, Radiant Tube Heaters
Cooling and heating are not luxuries
Every business and every budget demands different results of a heating and air conditioning system. Proper planning and design is the only way to ensure that you are going to be completely satisfied with your new system. At Tolson Comfort Systems, we walk you through all of the available options and present you the best possible solutions.
In addition to standard ground level heating and a/c systems, we service and install rooftop units. Plus, we install Radiant Tube Heating Systems including the Re-Verber-Ray infrared radiant heater system. The infrared heating products are efficient, cost effective and satisfy the heating requirements for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor commercial and industrial applications.
High efficiency, low noise
For buildings with no ductwork, duct-free split systems offer a quiet, efficient and safe alternative. Much more efficient than window air conditioners, duct-free split system heat pumps offer efficient heating AND cooling. From simple one-room applications to whole building systems, these systems are precision units made to exacting specifications. Known for their extreme quiet operation, compressed sizes and energy efficient performance, duct free mini-split systems now account for a third of the total world air conditioning market.
Radiant Floor Heat Systems
When it comes to comfort in the wintertime, it is hard to beat the luxurious comfort of radiant floor heat. Not only does one enjoy the comfort and energy saving benefits of radiant heat but there are the energy savings and (according to the EPA) the most environmentally friendly heating system.
What exactly is radiant energy?
Here is an excellent description provided by the Radiant Panel Association:
Hold your hand over a cup of coffee and feel the heat. The logical conclusion is that heat rises. Logical maybe, but incorrect! “Hot air” rises but “heat” can travel in many directions. That is why you can feel the heat of the coffee cup when you place your hand to the side of it. Radiant energy transfer is caused by a warm surface giving up its heat to a cooler surface.
Consider how the sun (10,000 degrees Fahrenheit) heats the earth. The sun radiates its energy towards the earth. The radiant energy is absorbed by the earth and is released as heat.
A radiant floor heating system simply radiates heat upward from the floor to provide optimum comfort and many other benefits.
Benefits of Radiant Floor Heating
- Natural Waves of Warmth
Warmth is carried to occupied spaces on invisible waves of radiant energy naturally.
No other heating system can come close to the high degree of comfort provided by radiant heating.
- More for Less
The efficient delivery of radiant heat is more comfortable while using less energy.
- Clean Breathable Air
No air passes through dusty ducts or dirty fins before reaching the room.
- Even Heating
Radiant systems gently warm the air, leaving no hot air to rise and be wasted at ceilings. Objects are warmed while cold windows and walls are neutralized by the heated surfaces.
- Silent Running
The quietest way to deliver heat to your home or business.
Radiant Tube Heat Systems
Infrared heats people, floors, walls, and other surfaces directly without heating the air first. The result is an instant warming effect, similar to the effect felt when the sun emerges from the clouds on a chilly day. When infrared heating is used in an enclosed building, objects in the space absorb the emitted infrared energy. Once absorbed, the energy is converted into heat which in turn warms the surrounding air. With convection space heating, the air must first be heated and then circulated in order to warm objects and people in the space.
Through various methods of heat transfer (radiation, re-radiation, conduction and convection) the air is heated secondarily as it passes over the warm concrete. Therefore, the heaters can be controlled by air temperature sensing thermostats.
This method of heating, as opposed to filling a room with warm air (such as a forced air unit) allows the source of heat to begin at the floor level and not the ceiling. This makes it the most efficient and effective method in which to heat under the diverse conditions present in warehouses, storerooms and even the most immense structures imaginable.
Geothermal: Using the earth to heat & cool
A geothermal heat pump (GHP) taps into the renewable solar energy stored in the ground to provide savings up to 70% on bills. Using a series of underground pipes, it exchanges heat with the earth instead of outdoor air. While air temperatures can vary greatly from day to night or winter to summer, the temperature just a few feet below the earth’s surface stays an average 55°-70°F year-round.

AIR CONDITIONING REPLACEMENT
The Comfort of Knowing Tolson Comfort Systems
For more than three decades discerning business owners have turned to Tolson Comfort Systems when it’s time to replace their air conditioning systems. We’ve earned a reputation for integrity that our clients appreciate. They trust us because we’ve earned their trust throughout the years as we maintained and repaired their existing systems. They know that we take pride in doing the right thing, even when no one is watching. That’s integrity. That’s Tolson Comfort Systems.
It’s a common question once a system begins to show the typical signs of aging, such as frequent breakdowns or inefficient performance. Once a system begins to fail, the chances are great that it will only continue to break down. So rather than invest good money in a bad system, it’s probably a better investment to replace your old system with a new one. Considering that you could reduce energy bills considerably with new high-efficiency equipment, keeping your old system is actually costing you more than you may realize.
Providing options that make you comfortable.
