The key to avoiding problems with your commercial HVAC system is to keep up with regular maintenance. You wouldn’t expect your vehicles to get a long life without oil changes, and the same is true for maintaining your HVAC system. One of the most common causes of poor performance and a reduction in indoor air quality is forgetting to change the air filters regularly. Dirty air filters reduce airflow, which makes your HVAC system work harder, resulting in higher energy costs and a shorter lifespan for the equipment.
Another common problem relates to the ductwork. If there are cracks and other places where air can leak out and pests can get in, your HVAC system has to work harder, and the occupants in your building could be breathing in contaminated air. If you notice inconsistent airflow throughout your building, it could be the ductwork to blame.
Unusual noises are an indication of a problem with the HVAC system that should be addressed as soon as possible. Strange odors are also something that should not go unresolved. Commercial HVAC systems are not just about keeping the temperature comfortable and controlling humidity. They can also be a part of keeping the air clean, so calling for maintenance regularly is important on many levels.
