Workplace studies show that many factors contribute to the satisfaction and productivity of your employees. A climate-controlled work environment is certainly near the top of the list.
By working with a professional heating and cooling company such as Field Plumbing & Heating that specializes in commercial applications, you’ll be ensuring a comfortable and pleasant work environment for your staff, customers, and business stakeholders.
Providing reliable, consistent, and comfortable heat for a commercial operation can be challenging. In some cases, commercial buildings are large and winding. You may have a combination of small offices along with a large production facility.
Hiring a professional commercial heating provider is critical in finding the solution that will meet your particular building requirements. Our trained technicians may suggest commercial furnaces, boilers, or heat pumps as a commercial heating solution. Rooftop units (RTUs) can keep equipment out of sight and increase efficiency and ventilation in a Gobles commercial facility as well.
Just like a properly scaled heating system is important in the winter, you’ll want a commercial cooling system in the summer that fits your unique commercial building’s needs. If cooling systems are inconsistent, you might end up with an imbalance in your commercial operation. If you are operating temperature-sensitive equipment, this can result in downtime or machine malfunctions.
Choose a professional heating and cooling company that has experience with commercial air conditioners, heat pumps, cooling towers, and chillers to ensure you select the best solution for your Michigan commercial cooling needs. Call Field Plumbing & Heating at 269-674-3839 today.
Regular maintenance inspections and cleaning are important to keep any heating and cooling equipment in tiptop condition. However, it can be even more critical in a commercial setting because heating and cooling malfunctions can negatively affect productivity. Consider investing in a maintenance plan to automatically schedule service and take advantage of special pricing. Request commercial service online today.
If you are considering heating options in your Gobles home, residential boilers may be on your short list. Although not as common as furnaces, boilers can be an excellent, energy-efficient way to provide even, comfortable heat for your family. Boilers typically use natural gas or heating oil to provide the energy to heat water, and the warm vapor provides residential heat.
Our professional team at Field Plumbing & Heating can help you choose a residential boiler system that is designed for your Michigan home’s size and climate. Selecting the correct boiler for your home, budget, and lifestyle is not something you should leave to chance. You need the help of a highly trained and experienced expert.
Boiler technology has improved tremendously in recent years. In fact, boilers installed decades ago may be wasting nearly half their energy while operating. Today, the highest efficiency residential boilers can operate at up to 98 percent efficiency.
To learn more about residential boilers, call Field Plumbing & Heating at 269-674-3839 . Our trained team can provide you with details about the residential boilers we offer and answer your questions. Request boiler service online today.
If you are considering adding on a room to your Michigan home, you may be wondering about heating and cooling options. Expanding your home’s ductwork can be costly and may overburden your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. You should consider installing an efficient ductless system available today.
Ductless systems can be an excellent solution for extra rooms in your Gobles home. Since they are not connected to your HVAC system, you can provide customized climate control in selected areas. For instance, you may want to heat or cool a home office only during work hours or an elderly family member may want a bedroom warmer than others residing in the home.
A home’s duct work is often responsible for up to a 30 percent loss of energy, which means a ductless system can reduce your energy bills regularly. Since ductless units require only a small hole in the wall to install, your energy loss is minimized.
Our trained experts at Field Plumbing & Heating can help you size a ductless unit for your room or home as well as advise if one makes sense for your particular heating or cooling needs. Call Field Plumbing & Heating at 269-674-3839 to learn more about ductless units. Request ductless system service online today.
Coming into a toasty, warm home from the blistering winter wind is such a pleasant feeling. Be sure your furnace is ready for the cold temperatures by checking in with our professionals at Field Plumbing & Heating. Our trained professionals can help you select and install a new furnace, repair or inspect an existing furnace, or simply tune up your entire heating system to be sure it’s prepared.
If you are in the market for a new furnace for your Gobles home, you will have plenty of options. Today’s furnaces are designed to operate in a wide variety of climates as well as different sized homes.
The layout of your rooms and the building materials used in your Michigan home should also play a role in helping you select the right furnace for your needs. It’s important to match the size of your furnace to all these factors so you get the right amount of heat in cold weather while not wasting energy unnecessarily.
Furnaces run on a variety of different fuels so another consideration when choosing a furnace is the long-run cost of operating your furnace. Most new furnaces are designed with optimal efficiency in mind. It’s important to balance the initial cost of your furnace with ongoing energy costs.
In addition, many furnaces have special features that can help improve indoor air quality or ventilation, offer variable speeds for more consistent heat, or provide zone heating.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
Whether you are thinking about building a dream house in the future or planning ahead in considering your options for a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) replacement in Gobles, it’s worth thinking about alternative as well as conventional options.
Geothermal heating and cooling systems, while not as widely known as traditional HVAC systems, offer a clean, renewable, and an efficient way to heat, cool, and even provide hot water depending on the unit in question.
A geothermal furnace exchanges heat with the earth through a ground heat exchanger. While this may drive up the initial costs of setting up a residential geothermal heat pump or similar unit, savings crop up in the long run. In general, you can expect to recoup your investment in two to 10 years.
Depending on your needs, several different varieties of geothermal systems are available on the residential market including models that offer two-speed compressors, variable fans, and hybrid options. Don’t forget that not all geothermal HVAC systems will work with all Michigan homes. It’s always best to consult with professionals before making your final decision or before falling in love with a particular unit or system.
Finding a sustainable, efficient, and effective way to heat and cool your Gobles home can be a challenge. Fortunately, technology and developments in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry are making strides in this area. One solution is to invest in a heat pump for all your climate control needs.
Our Field Plumbing & Heating team can provide a wealth of information about current heat pumps available today. Just like its name implies, a heat pump simply pumps warmer air between your home and the outdoors, depending on the season.
When you want additional heat during the colder months, the pump moves heat from outside to inside. When you want heat to be removed during the warmer seasons, the heat pump pushes the heat from inside to outside.
The majority of heat pumps available on the market today are air-source heat pumps. They consume less electricity than baseboard heaters and traditional furnaces, saving you money and reducing your home’s carbon footprint. Heat pumps do not create heat by burning a fuel such as wood or natural gas, which contributes to their energy efficiency and affordability.
High-efficiency heat pumps provide better dehumidification during the warmer months, giving them a leg up over conventional air conditioners.
If you want to get more information about heat pump models for your Michigan home, call Field Plumbing & Heating at 269-674-3839 . Our team is ready and prepared to answer your questions. Request heat pump service online today.
Indoor Air Quality
Do you find yourself feeling tired all the time? Are you suffering from allergies, asthma, or constant respiratory distress? Although these things can originate from many different sources, poor indoor air quality is a possibility.
Our team at Field Plumbing & Heating here in Gobles wants to help you ensure a healthy home. We will come out and test the air quality in your Michigan home. If they find any issues, they can provide remediation services to help you improve it.
Everyone has dust and dust mites in their home as well as some level of chemicals released from carpeting, cleaning supplies, and other household substances. In addition, if you have pets, you will generate more hair and dander. Smoking also adds particulates to the air. All of these things can contribute to an indoor air quality problem.
Testing of indoor air quality is something we do every day. If we find issues, our experienced professionals might recommend remediation such as air duct cleaning or replacing your air filters in your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. A wide variety of air filtration and air purification systems are available on the market today as well, which can help improve your indoor air quality.
Everything has its season, and your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is no different. Your furnace puts in overtime during the chilly winters while taking a rest in the summer, and your air conditioning unit works on the opposite schedule in Michigan. Our team at Field Plumbing & Heating recommends that right before your furnace or air conditioner goes into high gear you schedule an HVAC maintenance service call.
Our trained professionals will conduct a complete inspection and cleaning of your HVAC system. Talk with us about our multipoint inspection. It includes a filter change, lubrication, pressure and safety check, and much more. You will also have a trained eye on your system so any potential problems can be caught quickly and repaired before your HVAC system stops working.
In the long run, investing in HVAC maintenance can save you a great deal of stress and money in your Gobles home. A well-maintained system will not only function better, but it will consume less energy every day. In addition, it can help increase the working life of your whole system, making it less likely you will have to invest in a new furnace or air conditioning unit prematurely.

If you are tired of hot and cold spots in your home, you may want to consider investing in radiant floor heating. Since this heating system is installed under your flooring, it tends to provide very even heat throughout your Michigan home.
Radiant floor heating tends to be associated with high-end luxurious homes, but this system can be added to most Gobles homes and works with any type of flooring. Although installation costs can be high and you are likely to experience some disruption during a lengthy installation process, radiant floor heating can be a great way to save energy in the long run.
Our professionals at Field Plumbing & Heating can tell you the electrical- or water-based radiant flooring system only needs to be heated to 84 degrees. When you compare that to the 150 degrees that an old-fashioned furnace must reach, you can see why you save energy and money.
In addition to greater energy efficiency, radiant floor heating eliminates things like vents, air ducts, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment. That lends itself to more creative interior design possibilities. Once installed, radiant floor heating is easy to care for, safe, and simple to operate.
When you are ready to learn more, contact Field Plumbing & Heating at 269-674-3839. Our trained team has a great deal of information about different offerings, pros and cons, installation, and costs. Request radiant floor heating service online today.
No one likes dealing with a lack of hot water in your Michigan home. In general, barring some major catastrophe, the fault lies in the type of water heater you use. Regardless of where you are in your water heater’s life cycle, it’s worth looking into the new alternatives on the market and the benefits they may bring to your home.
The first option many Gobles homes come with is a tank water heater. These are generally heated by gas, electricity, or oil, then heat and store your hot water. However, they can run out at inconvenient times and can cause large amounts of water damage should the tank ever leak.
The second option is a tankless water heater. These systems heat water only upon demand, regardless of how much you may want at the time. They also are highly energy efficient since you are only using the water you need at the time—you are not spending money to keep a tank of water hot waiting to be used. Since these heaters do not have storage tanks, they have a smaller footprint in your home, making for versatility in installation locations.
When you are ready to learn more or to make needed improvements in your water heater, whether it is a replacement, new installation, repair, or maintenance, our Field Plumbing & Heating professionals at are ready and waiting for you—give us a call at 269-674-3839.

Having a working heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system in your Gobles home is something you probably take for granted. For the most part, once your thermostat is set, the temperature adjusts as the weather requires. All is well until a booming thunderstorm rolls in and takes out your neighborhood power lines. Suddenly, your home comes to a complete standstill.
Our team at Field Plumbing & Heating wants to help you continue with your day, whether it be throwing in that load of laundry, sending a work or school email, or cooking dinner. Installing a whole-house generator can help ensure that you are never without power, even in the most violent storms.
Standby generators that power the entire home are dubbed whole-house generators. Obviously, “whole house” power needs will vary by family and size of home. Individuals who live alone and simply in a Michigan small bungalow may only require a very small generator to power all their needs. A large family occupying a 6,000-square-foot home will require significantly more power to keep everything running.
Our Field Plumbing & Heating team is ready and waiting to help you size and select a generator to help you stay prepared. Call us at 269-674-3839 to learn more. Request whole-house generator service today.
Zone Control Systems
As an energy-conscious Michigan homeowner, you may have relied on diligence and basic technology to try to reduce your energy consumption at home. You may have responsibly programmed your thermostat to reduce consumption while you are at work or asleep. You may even police your Gobles home regularly, closing and opening room vents as needed. And you may take on extra inconveniences to reduce your overall carbon footprint each day.
Our team at Field Plumbing & Heating can now provide you with an easier way: zone control systems. These systems are designed to connect to your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Each zone has its own thermostat, and the system can be programmed to automatically open and shut zone dampers as the system receives temperature adjustments.
Zone control systems allow you to boost or lower the temperature of your bedrooms, for example, to achieve comfortable sleeping conditions. If you are entertaining in your main living areas, you can adjust that particular zone to manage the temperature for a greater number of people. Or, you can keep your home office zone comfortable while the rest of your home stays in energy-conservation mode during business hours.
Zone control systems, when installed properly and professionally, can help you reduce your energy consumption throughout the year while increasing your family’s comfort levels.
