Spring has sprung; which means it’s time to pull out your spring checklist for maintaining your commercial HVAC systems. A regular maintenance schedule ensures that heating repairs, ventilation installations and air conditioner replacements will perform their best. Proper maintenance also adds years to the life of your units.
As part of your maintenance routine, you should look for possible problems. In doing so, you’ll be able to head off common issues associated with HVAC systems. To prevent your employees and clients from having to go without air conditioning, now would be the best time to check their units and do a heating repair.
Spring Cleaning Routine
The most common reason for failure of commercial HVAC systems is a clogged filter, despite the fact that changing the filter is the easiest maintenance step to perform. To ensure that your changing schedule remains updated, keep a stack of filters handy so they’re always available when needed.
Air conditioning replacement experts advise checking the outdoor unit for debris. Nothing should be within several feet of the unit so that air may flow freely. Gently straighten coils if any of them are bent, then rinse and clean with soapy water.
Check the wires for any damage from mice or other rodents. Look for loose connections and scorched wiring.
Check to see if any refrigerant has leaked out and change hoses that show wear.
Mineral deposits may build up, so check for any blockage. Mold is a common problem which may also block airflow.
The build-up of dust and dirt are common issues. These must be removed from the surface so that airflow from the blower fan is optimal.
Cleaning or eplacing the air filters frequently is the best way to keep the coils clean. This should be done every month, especially for commercial HVAC systems. Don’t forget to use soapy water when coils are clogged; as this is one of the best ways to remove the debris.
Preventative maintenance saves you money because with it the units run more smoothly, require less energy and heat and cool more effectively.
