5 Qualities To Look For In A Commercial HVAC Ductwork Installer

Posted by Kaempf & Harris on October 30, 2017


Many people don’t have expertise in commercial HVAC ductwork installation, so it’s vital to your commercial building that you find someone who does. Because heating and cooling can affect the efficiency of your business and/or employees, look for these top qualities when choosing a company for installation:


Experience is a huge factor to consider when hiring a contractor, so it’s important to choose a sheet metal company that has experienced techs and leadership. Find a local company that’s committed to providing the best commercial HVAC ductwork installation service for your business.


A great commercial contractor should always have pride in what they do. If they don’t have pride in their project, they won’t put forth the effort, time, or resources to do their best.

Kaempf & Harris is ready to help you out in a way that makes the most sense for your business.

Our fabrication and installation team is here to break the negative stereotype behind commercial contractors, because our company genuinely cares about the success of yours. During installation, we treat the space like it’s our own.


Sheet metal professionals are one of the few trades who require constant learning. With the advancements in fab shop technology comes new safety best practices and apprenticeship opportunities. It’s important to find a local company that has the up-to-date knowledge in the industry.

This high level of experience and willingness to learn brings a new set of skills and passion to each commercial project and product, including yours. It goes beyond the basics of simply installing commercial HVAC ductwork and into testing, maintenance, and a project walkthrough from our trade experts. This ensures that you understand what’s been done before we sign off as your commercial contractor.

To make sure that you’re ready for the project before we even step through the door, Kaempf & Harris offers blogs about commercial ductwork design and ductwork parts as well as a project page to compare your ideas to ones we’ve brought to life.

Our ductwork projects include Mercersburg Academy Student Union Building and Carroll Hospital Cancer Center, among many others.


Attention to detail and commitment to providing the highest degree of service routinely lends itself to a valuable interaction between sheet metal installation techs and their customers. By prioritizing all of these traits, you can find worthwhile work that’s second to none.


It’s impossible for a commercial contractor to install functional ductwork in your building if they don’t pay attention to the tiny details. Kaempf & Harris technicians take the time to thoroughly assess the situation by listening to you and your ideas before the project starts.

Through this effective communication, we can determine a project timeline and location, whether or not it's a total renovation, and more. We work with what's best for you.

We also strive to produce quality work every single time with our metal fabricators, welding experts, and installers on techniques and tools by consistently training and following the latest American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors' National Association (SMACNA) standards and guidelines.

Whether you know exactly what your building needs or you’re not quite sure where to start, it’s important to find a local fabrication company that offers these top qualities for great service and an even better finished product.
