HVAC systems are a vital component for your business. To keep them working at their peak efficiency, it is important to make sure they are getting the proper care and service they need. A failing system can be costly and detrimental to your business operations.

With the hot summer months ahead, the last thing you need is a faulty HVAC unit. It can disrupt employees by causing discomfort and can even stop your operations that may require a cooler environment. With a preventative maintenance plan, a commercial HVAC tech will be able to keep things running smoothly for the season.

They will take care of both inside and outside components of your system. Signing a preventative maintenance agreement with your contractor can be intimidating, so here are some things to expect:

 

 

 
  • Airflow check
    • Having proper air flow is essential. The tech will do an airflow check and make sure everything is functioning properly. Your maintenance staff should also regularly be checking filters to avoid any issues.
 
  • Filter Replacements
    • Dirty filters can really overexert your system. Just by maintaining the cooling filters, you can really increase the life span of your unit. As mentioned before, your staff should also be on top this.
 
  • Cleaning Components
    • Sometimes if your system doesn't seem to be working efficiently, it could simply be due to buildup overexerting your system. Your tech will clean condenser/evaporator coils and clear pans and drain lines.
 
  • Refrigerant levels and leaks
    • To keep your system cooling your building properly, it's essential that you have your refrigerant levels in check. Your tech will check for leaks and repair them as needed and recharge refrigerant levels.
 
  • Belts, Pulleys, and Motors
    • Your tech will lubricate and check any moving parts and replace them if necessary. Belts and pulleys will also be evaluated and replaced. The fan and blower motor will be inspected as well.
 
      A commercial HVAC services contractor will be able to customize a plan for you and your unit's needs. They will ask questions about your system and its occupancy levels and your business operations in order to better serve you. The right provider will know what your needs are and how to address them correctly. With the proper PM plan your system's life span will increase and you can expect significant savings on your energy bill.
