Most HVAC owners are unaware of how exactly their systems work. Is that new banging noise you hear something to be concerned about? What are some of the warning signs that your system is about to suffer a catastrophic failure?
Commercial HVAC preventative maintenance is essential if you want to keep your workplace nice and comfortable. If you don't take care of it, you could be out of air conditioning for a few days and down a few thousand dollars spent on HVAC repairs.
Here's your guide on HVAC care and why it matters.
Watch Your Thermostat
HVAC care begins with your thermostat. The thermostat controls your system's functions and is often the cause of some of its problems.
For example, if you've noticed that your electricity bills are higher than usual for a particular month, it's probably because auto settings aren't working. There's a good chance your thermostat isn't telling your system to shut down.
Investing in a smart thermostat is a good way to keep tabs on your HVAC system. In addition, always replace your thermostat batteries regularly.
Refrigerant is the substance responsible for cooling the air that flows through your building. If it runs low, then your system won't be able to work effectively. It'll have to work harder to provide insufficient results, resulting in higher bills.
Failure to replace your refrigerant can cause your HVAC system to develop wear and tear more quickly. Part of your preventative maintenance is replacing your refrigerant regularly and checking for any leaks.
Clean Your Air Filters
Air filters are responsible for keeping dirt and debris out of your system. A business in a clean environment should clean or replace its filters every three months. Failure to do so can result in a clogged system, which can cause a lot of problems.
For one, clogs increase your energy consumption because the system has to work harder to pull air through them. As a result, these clogs will lead to inadequate heating and cooling.
Even if your system continues to work well, the dust and debris it catches will re-circulate throughout your home.
Get Regular HVAC Maintenance
Accessing all parts of your HVAC system is difficult, especially when that includes ductwork that snakes its way around your building. One of the best things you can do is hire regular HVAC maintenance to check on every part of it.
An HVAC company can make small repairs, look at the conditions of your ductwork, and teach you how to take care of your system. They're also the ones who will know for sure if and when you need to replace your HVAC system.
