It’s no secret that commercial HVAC maintenance can be expensive. However, arranging contracts for prompt service and emergency repairs is well worth the investment. That’s because the HVAC unit embedded inside your commercial building (or kept on the roof) is one of your most important assets. Without it, your indoor air quality could dip. On the other hand, you could be subject to downtime that will be a hardship for your employees and hamper your ability to provide excellent customer service. So then, what are some of the warning signs that your system is on the brink of failure? Please read on to find out more!
What Does an HVAC Emergency Look Like?
Monitoring your building’s air quality is an essential part of avoiding HVAC emergencies. However, that is easier said than done. Whenever a problem such as contamination arises, it could negatively affect your IAQ. This scenario would qualify as an HVAC emergency. Similarly, your system’s overall health, integrity, and service lifespan could be in jeopardy if you ignore the necessities of timely repairs. Medical facilities, data centers, server rooms, and research laboratories all need to be kept under strict temperature control – so do not put off the repairs or replacements until it is already too late.
Frequently-Seen Problems and Hazards
Let’s switch gears and discuss some of the most common problems associated with an HVAC emergency. One hazard to be on the lookout for is the possibility of liquid or refrigerant leaks. R-22 refrigerant is officially banned, so if you have any left in reserve, you must get rid of it as soon as possible. Control and wire failures can also cause electrical hazards. Likewise, frozen or overheated unit components could lead to an unexpected shutdown. Pipe and passage clogs will decrease efficiency and make the system work harder than it needs to; extreme weather and severe temperature changes pose another tremendous risk to both your building and its built-in commercial HVAC system.
Preparing to Mitigate Potential Risks
By now, you should be better prepared how to find risks and catalog them. That way, you can describe your crisis to the HVAC technician we send to your premises should you need emergency service; this is a promise we strive to uphold 24/7.
