Common Commercial HVAC Problems: Part Two

Common Commercial HVAC Problems: Part Two

Commercial HVAC systems are designed to provide consistent and reliable service and comfort to buildings over extended periods.

Commercial HVAC systems are designed to provide consistent and reliable service and comfort to buildings over extended periods. However, as time progresses, your building’s HVAC can become less reliable and succumb to equipment failure, age, and wear and tear, requiring repairs or replacement to maintain a safe, healthy, productive, and comfortable environment while keeping energy bills low. Continue reading to identify three more common commercial HVAC problems to watch out for as we run our HVAC systems more frequently during the spring season.

Strange and Loud Noises

HVAC systems are typically quiet, and we often don’t realize they’re running. So, if the HVAC in your building is louder than usual or you’re constantly hearing strange noises coming from your commercial HVAC while it’s on, this may indicate a major issue. For instance, if you’re constantly hearing a screeching, rattling, clinking, banging, thumping, or popping noise, there’s a possibility that there’s an obstruction in your HVAC or it has loose and broken components that need to be replaced or repaired. The best way to investigate and diagnose the strange and loud noises coming from your commercial HVAC system is by having an HVAC technician inspect and service your HVAC system.

Refrigerant Leaks

Refrigerant is the chemical liquid agent required for your air conditioner (AC) to produce cool air. If you notice your AC is producing warm or hot air or your building isn’t cool during the warm months of spring, this is a sign that your unit may be leaking refrigerant, and it should be inspected and repaired right away. Prolonging this can cause your AC to work harder, leading to more expensive problems in your unit.

Broken Thermostat

Your HVAC’s thermostat is responsible for turning your HVAC on and off, regulating the temperature in your building, and factoring the amount of heat or air your system should produce. So, when your thermostat breaks, it can cause your HVAC system to be unresponsive, resulting in fluctuating temperatures impacting the comfort of a building and its occupants. Some of the common causes of malfunctioning thermostats are faulty wiring, dead batteries, it needs to be recalibrated, age, and much more. While broken thermostats are generally a simple fix, they should be inspected, repaired, or replaced by a professional immediately to save you money on major repair costs and help maintain the comfort levels in your building.
