Ease of installation and labor savings are paramount considerations for any type of HVAC work. However, it's rare to find equipment able to deliver both benefits, especially during less than ideal weather conditions.
Such was the case for an extensive ventilation/exhaust system installed during the fall of 2005 at Altec Industries' welding and fabricating facility in St. Joseph, MO. Altec, in business more than 75 years, is an equipment and service provider for the electric utility, telecommunications, and contractor markets. Despite Missouri's sometimes cooler and windy climate, the building only requires limited supplemental heating and no air conditioning.
