Keeping Offices Cool With HVAC Services

In July of 2011, things got a little hot at Ann Taylor’s Corporate Headquarters in Times Square. The retail giant’s office spread over fourteen floors with 300,000 occupied square feet, had HVAC systems that were neglected by the prior service company and failing during the peak of Summer.

Day & Nite Air Conditioning first did a full inspection and performed overdue maintenance to critical comfort systems. Our certified HVAC technicians quickly restored all of the equipment to and had cool air flowing throughout the company.

Through our partnership with Ann Taylor, we were able to restore the equipment to operation, drastically reduce operating costs, and minimize major repairs.

Service Contracts Keep Kitchen Equipment Running

Union Square Hospitality’s Shake Shack is a high volume fast-casual restaurant chain serving 1000’s of people each day. To keep the business firing on all cylinders, every piece of kitchen equipment must be in tip top shape. That is why the company turned to Day & Nite to provide regular maintenance services to their refrigeration, kitchen and HVAC equipment.

Our technicians are experts in hot and cold systems. They all regularly participate in sessions led by factory reps in our on-site training kitchen so they know every piece of equipment inside and out. With our huge refrigeration, HVAC and commercial kitchen equipment parts inventory, we ensure that Shake Shack can continue to do business at full speed. Finally, our web based FM platform operators can monitor anything service related on their mobile phone at each of the five locations Day & Nite looks after.

LED Lighting Cost & Sustainability Efficiencies

Corporate dining facilities have many fixed costs associated with them. For this reason, our clients are delighted whenever we can find ways to create efficiencies. Furthermore, everyone is happy when they reduce expenses and save energy.

Over the last year, we’ve installed LED lighting in display cases, walk-in’s and kitchens for these very reasons. While some clients approach us to make their kitchens more sustainable, others come to us out of necessity. Many times if a light is out, it makes more sense to retrofit a new LED system to reap the future benefits.

With LED lighting our clients are reducing costs by taking steps to conserve energy. They also last longer and require less maintenance. Call us today about LED lighting.

Citi Field – 38 Miles of Refrigeration


When someone thinks of a 850 million dollar renovation to one of world’s most legendary sports venues, big jumbotrons and fancy sky boxes probably come to mind. In 2011, Citi Field turned to day and night to do a much more important job. Pour beer faster and colder with a new refrigeration system.

In order to keep millions of fans a year happy and increase revenue Day & Nite installed a state of the art beer system. The system consists of over 38 miles on beer lines, 1000 kegs and 566 individual taps at 45 stations.

After the project was completed, Citi Field was able to serve more beer faster contributing to less wait time. This made fans and management happy; a home run for everyone.

Reduce Refrigeration Costs With EC Motors

Our clients are always looking for ways to reduce costs in their corporate dining facilities and we’re committed to bringing them innovative solutions. To keep large walk-ins and other refrigeration systems running requires a ton of electricity.

One of New York’s busiest catering companies Abigail Kirsch came to us several years ago to upgrade their motors to electronically commutated or EC motors for the reasons mentioned above. These “brushless motors” can run up to 70% more efficient than traditional motors that run vaporators, condenser fans, refrigerated display-cases and in Abigail Kirsch’s case walk-In Coolers.

Years later the EC motors are running well. The client has yet to call us to replace any of them or the controllers. As result, the company gained energy efficiencies and cost savings through less required maintenance. Call us now to learn about how we can make your facility more sustainable. 

Plumbing Case Study: Clogged Drains Drain Revenue

When the kitchen is down at a Steakhouse it means lost revenue and potential customers are going to another restaurant. This was the case at Mastros last year. Due to stoppages in the floor drains the hot-line was not running which brought the work in the kitchen to a halt.

Fortunately, they called Popular Plumbing who quickly responded with all the tools and knowledge to fix the clogged drains. Utilizing electric drain cleaners and a video camera locator, the location of the stoppage was found outside of the restaurant in the building piping. It was so big that a section of pipe had to be removed to get rid of the stoppage. Just to make be on the safe side, the drains were further cleaned with a high pressure water jetter to ensure proper operation.

With speed and efficiency Popular Plumbing diagnosed and fixed the problem. In less than a day, the kitchen was operational again the restaurant was turning tables.

Gas Leaks – Finding & Fixing Lines


Sometimes plumbing can be dangerous work and the most dangerous jobs are gas leaks. Recently a leak was detected to a popular NYC restaurant and the gas supply was shut down by Con Edison. This forced the restaurant to close it’s doors. The problem needed to be fixed quickly because in the NY restaurant world, time is money.

We deployed a team of plumbing technicians who found and repaired multiple leaks in the gas piping. Our support team in the office coordinated with Con Edison and the New York City Building Department to file the necessary permits and paperwork to get the gas restored so the client could worry about the rest of their business while we got the job done.

Our plumbing experts fixed the dangerous leaks and the restaurant was able to begin operations shortly thereafter after the collaborative effort from our team.

Case Study: Commerical Kitchen Equipment

Viacom feeds thousands of hungry employees every week and they cannot afford for crucial kitchen equipment to be down during the week. Recently they needed old pieces removed and new equipment installed over the weekend.

Luckily they called on All Service who could procure the equipment from a manufacturer partner, deliver it to the location then handle the removal/installation. Our highly trained crew was already familiar with the new items so not a moment was wasted figuring out the new equipment.

Because they called All Service, Viacom’s kitchen equipment was fully operational before Monday and cooks enjoyed their weekend.
