Our team of experts have years of experience helping HVAC systems run as long and efficiently as possible. Expand the lifespan of your HVAC systems and save money at the same time by following these simple steps. These steps can help you ensure your system is running well, no matter the weather or age of your HVAC system.
Schedule Preventative Maintenance
System interruptions can cause a host of issues, not only are they inconvenient, but they are also potentially expensive. Periodically maintaining your commercial HVAC equipment will save your company money by lowering utility bills, prolonging the life of your HVAC system, enhancing employee performance, and reducing the potential of costly repairs. Preventive maintenance programs will have your equipment ready for cold winters and hot summers.
Change Filters Frequently
Like any other appliance, your HVAC system will run more efficiently when clean and well-maintained. Following manufacturer guidelines for seasonal cleaning will help improve performance. In the summer and spring, pollen and dust will travel through the air and clog up your air filters. Keep the units clear of other debris like mud and grass clippings in the fall and winter months. Having a dirty filter can also overwork your system and could lead to a costly repair or replacement in the future.
Invest in a Smart Thermostat
Implementing smart thermostats into the HVAC system gives you more control over the heating and cooling, so it’s only on when you need it. A smart thermostat is a thermostat that can be controlled with an internet-connected device. Some models can create automatic and programmable temperatures based on your commercial buildings’ habits.
Check on Your Condenser
Although condensers are designed to withstand nature and outside elements, it is possible that it can get damaged from harsh weather and debris. It is important to periodically check your condenser for any damage or build-up of leaves, weeds, and dirt, which can restrict proper airflow.
You’ll ensure decades’ worth of excellent performance and indoor comfort by taking better care of your commercial HVAC system. HVAC maintenance on your systems will also provide higher energy efficiency, lowering costs and saving money.
