Watch Out for These Commercial HVAC Issues
A commercial HVAC system creates comfortable temperatures year-round in your commercial building. Whether you’re operating a large apartment complex, offices, a school, or other commercial building, it’s important to keep your HVAC system operating efficiently. Look for these common issues that require commercial maintenance to restore the efficiency of your HVAC system.
Continuous Short Cycling
Both commercial air conditioners and furnaces can be subject to short cycling. When this happens, it’s important to contact a professional HVAC technician. Short cycling is when your HVAC system continues to turn on and off in a short period of time. Not only does this cause more wear and tear on your system, but it could also be a sign of a deeper issue.
Typically, short cycling is caused by a malfunction, improper installation, or a damaged component. A clogged filter, faulty wiring, or poor unit sizing can all create uneven cycling.
Schedule routine inspections of your AC unit throughout the year. Whether you inspect it yourself, contact a professional, or have an employee inspect it, there are a few obvious signs that your commercial AC unit needs maintenance services. One sign is leaking refrigerant.
While most air conditioners may condensate and drip water, you shouldn’t see any colored liquid leaking from your AC unit. If you do, it’s important to receive professional services immediately. Leaking refrigerant will reduce the efficiency of your unit and quickly cause it to cease functioning altogether.
Finally, a dirty filter is another common maintenance issue to watch out for. Both your AC and your furnace force air through ductwork throughout your commercial building, so they use a filter to ensure the air is free from contaminants. A dirty filter can greatly reduce the efficiency of your system and cause unnecessary strain on your condenser and blower.
