Maintaining and Replacing Commercial Air Handling Units

Although you understand how important HVAC maintenance is, you might not realize how important commercial air handling units are.

Although you understand how important HVAC maintenance is, you might not realize how important commercial air handling units are. These components need to be repaired and monitored as often as possible. These units help create and maintain comfortable temperatures and improve the air quality inside your commercial building. Let’s learn more about them.

The Importance of Maintenance

Ensuring efficient operation of your commercial HVAC systems begins with preventative maintenance. During the maintenance process, every part of the system is examined for problems, and then these problems are then resolved. Well-maintained air handling units are essential components of keeping your commercial HVAC systems running smoothly. Some of the problems that you may not recognize right away include:

  • aging blower motors
  • clogged filters
  • faulty fans
  • buildups of condensation  
  • filthy ductwork
  • outdated components

All of these issues contribute to worsening indoor air quality, temperature fluctuations, and inadequate air flow. That’s why getting timely service is important, as are replacements when the original system has failed.  

The Importance of Replacements

Commercial air handling units, like commercial HVAC systems, will eventually wear out. Once they do, they will need replacing. Although the replacement process may seem confusing, when you work with the experts they will make it much less time-consuming so you can focus on running your business. With the right replacements, your company can save money over the next ten years, vastly improving your energy efficiency and putting you in a better position for the next time the air handling units need to be replaced.

The replacement process involves several different steps. First, the new air handling units must be installed. Then they need to be started up to make sure that they will work. After the startup procedures are completed, further testing is conducted to ensure that everything is fully functional and that there are no parts that need further repairs. It’s also important to ensure that vibration analyses are completed so that the air handling units won’t shake too much and disrupt other parts of the delicate system. You’ll also want to make sure that the noise isn’t distracting or harmful to your employees and visitors once the new air handling units are up and running.
