Commercial HVAC systems must have performed tough during the cold season. Hence, these warm months, you need to get your units ready to give your building the best comfort against the piercing heat.
If you are wondering when is the best time to have your units checked and tuned up, experts say there is no better time than the spring season!
Why Choose Spring?
Spring temperature is not too cold or too warm, just the right season to fire up your commercial HVAC system for the first time and see if winter has left damages and hindrances to its proper operation. In addition, heating and cooling technicians are very much available in this time of the year. If you schedule a maintenance service in summer, you may need to wait a few more days before an HVAC technician is available to check your commercial HVAC system. This is not something that you want to happen if you are thinking of your business and comfort of your clients and employees.
Commercial HVAC Maintenance Checks:
Here are some of the most important maintenance checks to keep your commercial HVAC systems ready for the heat wave.
Replace Air Filters
Changing air filters should be on top of your spring maintenance list. Dirty air filters make an unhealthy indoor air which can bring health issues on your employees and visitors. Depending on the quality of filters, you may need to have them replaced every 1-3 months.
Inspect the Wiring
Your commercial HVAC system involves complex system wiring that needs to be checked regularly. Wiring problems can hinder the system’s proper operation and can cause discomfort inside the building. Rodents and other pests can also get stuck in the wiring and may cause loose connections and burnt wires.
Check Refrigerant Level
If there is insufficient refrigerant content in your air conditioning unit, it will not cool the office properly. This also means that leaks are present in the system. It is important to fix the leaks before adding refrigerants.
Clean Drain Lines, Blower Fans and Evaporator Coils
Proper drainage and airflow are important concerns when it comes to your commercial heating and cooling systems. During the winter, drain lines and coils can get clogged with dust, dirt and mold build up. Cleaning these parts are essential for your commercial HVAC system to function properly.
