How to Care for Your Commercial HVAC System

If you are a business owner or building manager, the last thing you need is for your commercial HVAC system to break down in the middle of a busy day. Whether you have shoppers, tenants, employees or a combination of all three in your building, anything that could disrupt “business as usual” could end up costing you one way or another.

Keeping your commercial HVAC running smoothly all year long is the goal. And with parts like a heat exchanger, blower motor, combustion chamber, condenser coil, evaporator coil and thermostat that all need to work together, it’s easy to see how one small issue could cause big problems.

Getting Regular Maintenance

Keeping your system properly maintained is the most effective way to ensure you won’t have issues that will affect your operation. Having your HVAC checked out at least twice a year will help identify issues before they compromise the efficiency or safety of the system. Some of the things that a commercial HVAC maintenance call would cover include:

  • Inspecting and changing air filters, if necessary, to improve efficiency
  • Checking the furnace to make sure there is no issue with carbon monoxide
  • Calibrating thermostats for added efficiency
  • Adjusting supply registers as needed to increase efficiency
  • Inspecting rooftop units for damage and wear
  • Lubricating any moving parts to ensure proper function
  • Tightening electrical connections and checking the refrigerant charge
  • General safety check for the entire commercial space and occupants

Timely Repairs

No HVAC system is designed to last forever, and if you experience performance problems that require repairs despite your maintenance efforts, it’s important to get someone in as soon as possible. Repairs are inevitable at some point, but making sure they are performed in a timely manner is what’s important. One way to facilitate this is to align your business or building with a local commercial HVAC specialist so you have access when the need arises. This will allow you to have less downtime and less time scrambling around looking for a solution.
