Tips To Set Your Commercial HVAC Unit Up To Succeed
Running a business has enough stress without adding a broken AC unit in the summertime or a cold heater in the winter. If you really want to save time and money when it comes to your business, you’ll invest in knowing what it takes to keep your HVAC unit in good shape.
Take some time for research now, and save tons of dough later. Read through this brief compilation of a few helpful tips to set your commercial HVAC unit up to succeed.
Change out the interior air filters
The intake filters on the inside of your establishment are there to clean up the air you and your employees breathe every day. Keep tabs on the filters, and change them out for fresh filters every month.
A dirty HVAC filter can bog down the whole system. Not to mention, dirty filters can cause your system to work harder than it has to in order to achieve the desired room temperature.
Keep a watchful eye/ear on the unit
Keep an eye and ear out for any changes in the way your HVAC system sounds/looks. If you hear a strange sound emanating from your HVAC system, that’s a good sign that something could be going wrong.
Do a quick visual inspection of your heating and air conditioning unit from time to time to get a heads up on any mechanical issues that may arise. Preventative care saves the company money.
Clean off any random debris
Passing weather can leave dead leaves and other organic debris stacked up on your unit. The leaves can fall into the unit, causing the system to get a bit mucked up over time.
Take the time to clear the random debris from your heating and air conditioning unit to preserve its function for longer. Avoid spending money on repairs, and take pride in the upkeep of your systems.
Make sure your thermostat is in good shape
Have a time to take a more skeptical look at your thermostat from time to time. If your operation’s thermostats are not working well, your system could be working overtime.
You may also experience the opposite, and freeze out the place by accident. An accurate thermostat is crucial to the proper maintenance of your company’s HVAC unit.
Get your unit serviced by professionals
You should take the time at least once per year to call in the assistance of a professional heating and air conditioning tech to service your HVAC unit.
Yearly servicing will extend the lifespan of your HVAC systems and save you money in the long run. Don’t spare expenses on this step of business ownership, and you’ll thank yourself down the road.
