You shouldn't take your business's heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) for granted, and you can keep your system running longer with regularly scheduled commercial HVAC maintenance. Even the most advanced, state-of-the-art HVAC systems can break down and stop functioning if they don't get the proper maintenance work, so you'll want to make sure that your system gets the needed repairs and upgrades that it needs to do its job. You can hire commercial HVAC maintenance professionals to handle these specific maintenance services.
Belts, fans, and other parts of your HVAC system need lubrication so that they don't break down from friction. Knowledgeable HVAC maintenance contractors can access these parts and apply enough lubrication so that they can continue to work properly. The best contractors only use lubrication that's of the highest quality so that the substance lasts as long as possible and doesn't damage any of the components.
Dirt and other particles can clog your HVAC system and cause it to run less efficiently. A dirty HVAC system could also taint your business's air quality and put you, your staff, and your clients at risk for respiratory problems and other health issues, so you should definitely have your system cleaned when it needs this service. Some specific parts that HVAC maintenance experts can clean include the:
- Evaporator coil
- Drip pans
- Air ducts
- Ignition system
- Combustion blower
- Blower assembly
- Burner assembly
The thermostat that controls the temperature of the air that's generated from your HVAC system may have problems that you haven't noticed. If these problems aren't fixed, your thermostat may prompt your HVAC system to work harder than it should, and this can wear out your system faster and raise your business's utility costs because of the extra energy output. Faulty or damaged thermostat parts can be fixed, or a new thermostat may be installed as a replacement.
Certain parts of your HVAC system could be leaking, and your system might stop working altogether if the cracks or holes that are leaking fluids through them aren't fixed. Some fluids that are used for HVAC systems can also be hazardous to the environment, and having the leaks fixed can prevent these fluids from getting into the soil and water and harming the earth's ecosystems.
Parts of your HVAC system that are exposed to moisture frequently could rust over time. Moisture from rain can often cause rust formation, but the problem could also be related to leaks that haven't been fixed. Rust can also develop on furnaces that are exposed to the moisture from air conditioner condensation that drops onto them, and HVAC maintenance contractors can try to come up with a solution to this problem.
If you want the air quality in your business to remain safe and comfortable, your HVAC system's maintenance should be prioritized. You won't have to do the maintenance work yourself when you hire experienced contractors to take care of all your commercial HVAC maintenance tasks for you.
