As we head into the wind-down of the season, and fall is officially here, it’s time to start thinking about some basic maintenance for your business before the holidays and end of the year arrive. The last quarter is always the biggest push for any business, and that means making sure you, your business and your business space don’t hit any snags that could set you back. Having an uncomfortable commercial space due to a poorly-functioning HVAC system can be a definite snag for your business, but it’s one that is very avoidable when you schedule maintenance for your commercial heating and cooling system.
Maintenance Is a Full Tune-Up
When the commercial HVAC professionals from Climate Masters perform maintenance on your HVAC system, they aren’t shining a flash light into your property’s register and calling it a day. A maintenance appointment is a full tune-up. It takes time and involves a number of steps, including:
- Check condensing unit
- Cleaning of condensate array
- Check temperature rise and drop across condenser coil
- Check and tighten all electrical connections
- Wash and thoroughly clean condenser coil and cabinet
- Check compressor motor for both amperage and operation
- Make sure thermostat is operating as needed
- Check refrigerant
- Check condition of air filters, replace if needed
- Clean air handler cabinet, remove all debris
- Check all controls
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Conduct performance testing
For Commercial Systems, You Should Schedule Maintenance Bi-Annually
Your commercial system likely contains both the heating and cooling elements in one system. This means that your commercial HVAC system works year-round, and as a result, works twice as much as separate heating and cooling systems do. When you own a system that works year-round, it’s important that you maintain it twice a year rather than once a year to ensure that it is in good working order.
