Having an HVAC system is essential to the comfort of homeowners as well as the preservation of the high-quality services and experiences commercial buildings offer. Seasonal maintenance–or the twice-a-year service critical for HVAC systems–is crucial for enabling the HVAC system to meet the demands of temperature changes in all weather conditions.
The arrival of spring calls for seasonal HVAC maintenance in commercial buildings. To ensure that your air conditioner and heat pump are performing properly, your spring HVAC maintenance checklist should include professional inspections, repairs and adjustments, at the very least.
Spring HVAC Maintenance Checklist
HVAC systems in commercial buildings are likely to be responsible for the cooling and heating of particularly large spaces. With this comprehensive checklist, you won’t have to worry about forgetting anything crucial.
Air filters: Dirt buildup is a common problem with air conditioning units, particularly around the air filters since they’re mainly responsible for removing various particles and other contaminants. When filthy air ducts or vents are left unchecked, they can compromise the indoor air quality and experience of your employees and customers. After all, who wants to see filthy, charcoal-like dust piling up on the equipment that regulates the air you breathe? Worst case scenario: it can trigger allergies!
Refrigerant: Cooling systems require the aid of refrigerants to trap and release heat. If there are signs of refrigerant leaks, make sure that the technicians have it repaired immediately.
Controls: Make sure that you include the inspection and calibration of all system controls and switches to prevent unexpected problems while the commercial building is in service.
Electrical connections: Even minimal vibrations in your HVAC system can result in loosened connections. If you find detached, or worse, scorched wirings, call an HVAC repair technician right away.
Condenser units: Located outdoors, condenser units should be kept sparkling clean to avoid blocked airflow. Make sure that no tall grass, mud or other organic materials are surrounding your coil and vents.
Drain lines: Ensure that your drain lines and pans are working properly and are clear of obstructions. Remember that these are prime locations for algae growth, so extra care should be observed.
