Common Commercial HVAC Problems: Part One

Common Commercial HVAC Problems: Part One

Commercial HVAC systems are built to last and are expected to provide reliable performance and comfort to buildings and their occupants.

Commercial HVAC systems are built to last and are expected to provide reliable performance and comfort to buildings and their occupants over an extended period. However, over time, due to many internal and external factors, your HVAC can succumb to age and constant wear and tear, becoming less efficient and reliable. As we enter the spring season and begin to use our cooling systems more frequently, here are three common commercial HVAC problems to watch out for.

Loss of Efficiency

Over time your commercial HVAC system can lose efficiency due to a number of factors, including lack of maintenance, age, malfunctioning components, wear and tear, dirty coils, clogged air filters, and more, decreasing your HVAC’s service time and significantly increasing your monthly heating or cooling expenses. This typically happens when your HVAC system works harder and runs more often. If you notice your energy bill is rising and not being impacted by increased use or the weather changes, you should have your HVAC system inspected by a professional.

Lack of Cooling

Insufficient refrigerant is one of the most common problems experienced with commercial HVAC systems. If your commercial property is experiencing a lack of cooling, it’s probably the result of leaking refrigerant. Refrigerant is a key component in cooling systems that removes heat and produces cool air. If your commercial HVAC system is leaking refrigerant, cooling your property can become increasingly difficult. However, having an HVAC technician recharge, refill, or replace your HVAC’s refrigerant is usually helpful in restoring its ability to cool various areas effectively.

Reduced Indoor Air Quality

Your building’s HVAC’s air filter directly impacts its indoor air quality, so it’s important to change it regularly. Your HVAC’s air filter helps keep clean air circulating in a building free of contaminates, improving your indoor air quality, and allowing your HVAC system to run more efficiently. Keeping your air filter clean is key to maintaining clean and healthy indoor air quality and a functioning HVAC system. If you notice a reduction in the indoor air quality, have your air filters and ducts inspected, changed, or cleaned.
