Keeping your commercial HVAC unit operational as long as possible means getting the most out of your investment. However, like all appliances, even the best commercial HVAC systems will need to be replaced. If you’re waiting to upgrade your systems because you think it is cost-prohibitive for your business, then follow this advice on how to keep your HVAC unit running until then.
Arrange Preventative Maintenance
Preventative maintenance is one of the quickest and easiest ways to ensure that your commercial HVAC unit continues to run without problems. You’ll need an experienced technician to identify any issues for you. Maintaining your HVAC unit by changing out the individual parts is critical for ensuring its long-term success, especially as temperatures continue to fluctuate. It could be cold one day and hot the next; even with cooler weather approaching it’s possible that you will have to deal with unseasonably warm temperatures all the way into December.
One last benefit of arranging preventative maintenance is that you will be alerted to any potential equipment problems that you can fix before they become too much of a headache.
Conduct Your Own Inspections
Sometimes, knowing when to schedule preventative maintenance for your commercial HVAC unit depends on your own inspections. While you may not be able to diagnose deeper systemic problems, there are some signs you can identify for yourself, such as if there’s a layer of ice building up on your building’s HVAC unit when there shouldn’t be or it doesn’t start up even after you switch it on.
Clean Filters, Vents, and Ductwork
If your commercial HVAC unit runs too loudly, it can disrupt your employees’ productivity and bother your guests, customers, and clients. You also need to monitor the indoor air quality of your building – with people getting sick due to allergies or colds, dirty air can make everybody in your commercial building feel worse than before. That’s why you need to clean the filters, vents, and ductwork attached to your commercial HVAC unit. By doing this, you can help it last longer. Plus, proper cleaning of filters, vents, and ducts can avert any fire hazards that could ruin your HVAC system and your building.
