When Should I Schedule Commercial HVAC Repair for My System?

Friday, January 30th, 2015

Commercial HVAC systems (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) are large and complex, which means it may be difficult for you to detect when a small problem has occurred. Besides, if your own or manage a commercial property, you may be very busy on a day-to-day basis, so you might not always be attuned to details like the condition of the heater and AC. However, it’s important to keep an eye on your HVAC system in order to prevent a costly replacement, which could take quite a toll on your business. Learn the signs that you need commercial HVAC repair in Bethesda in our guide.

Schedule Service after the Very First Complaint!

One sure way to tell that your HVAC equipment is in trouble is when your employees, clients, customers, and/or tenants begin to complain. You may be tempted to wait until the problem becomes more serious if it sounds as though the HVAC system is still functioning on some level. However, you should keep in mind that when one component of a heating or air conditioning system is not working quite right, all of the other components may slowly become worn down until the repair need is suddenly far more costly. Call an expert whenever those on your property point out strange noises, reduced heating and cooling, or any other strange behavior.

High Energy Bills

If your system is running inefficiently, it means that at least one of the components is not in the best shape possible. A dirty coil, broken safety component, or slow fan can all cause your unit to run for longer periods of time, raising your utilities. Check your bills for any sign of unusual changes that could indicate a broken HVAC system.

After a Maintenance Visit

One of the easiest ways to find out whether there is anything wrong with your system is to schedule regular commercial HVAC maintenance. During a maintenance visit, your technician will inspect your entire system and can let you know if anything is in need of urgent repair, even if it hasn’t shown any obvious signs of failure yet. They’ll also clean and adjust some of the most important parts so that your unit has a better chance of running smoothly for the rest of the year.

Why Hire a Commercial Specialist for Commercial HVAC Services

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

If you own or manage a commercial property in Rockville, your clients, customers, employees, or tenants are important to you. But if your commercial property is not kept cool in the summer and warm in the winter, you may begin to get complaints. It’s important to maintain your air conditioning and heating system and schedule repairs as soon as possible so that your building is always as comfortable as it can be. However, if you call an HVAC technician with little experience in dealing with commercial systems, you may not get the services you need. This guide details the services offered by commercial technicians and why calling someone experienced for commercial HVAC services is vital.

Commercial Installation/Replacement

Commercial systems are larger and more complicated than residential systems, as they cover a larger area. With any air conditioning system, you need to ensure it is sized properly so that it won’t run into problems later on. With a system that is not the correct size, your business may never reach the desired temperature, or your system may overheat. So many factors go into sizing such a system—such as the number of floors, the needs of the business, the number of occupants, and the building’s insulation—that an inexperienced technician may be incapable of determining the proper size.

Commercial HVAC Repairs

The components of a commercial HVAC system are often combined into one cabinet. These packaged systems may be unfamiliar to some technicians, who may take longer to locate and repair faulty components, leaving you without a working heating or cooling system for a longer period of time.

Commercial HVAC Maintenance

You should call for professional maintenance at least once a year to ensure the system continues to perform well throughout the year. Commercial HVAC maintenance can improve performance, restore efficiency, and prevent the need for repairs. A technician cleans dirty components, adjusts parts, and notifies you of any problems, but an inexperienced technician may be unable to identify crucial repair needs.
