You can never skimp on the maintenance of your commercial HVAC systems to ensure they’re running at their peak efficiency. At no given time should you ignore the signs of malfunctioning in your AC unit since it could lead to more serious problems if left unchecked.
When you commercial HVAC unit is functioning at full capacity, it ensures that the building maintains a comfortably cool temperature inside. If this is not enough, it will prevent issues such as mold and mildew from occurring.
Below are a few tips to ensure your commercial HVAC systems are in top shape at all times:
Clean and Replace the Filter
Filters present in commercial HVAC systems are designed for the most demanding of environments. They are low-maintenance and have a high durability. Despite this, you should never skimp on regular cleaning and replacement.
You should make it the norm to replace commercial air filters every three months or every 1,500 hours of operation. It is also highly recommended that you invest in an air filter monitor that alerts you when the filter needs replacing.
Clean the HVAC Heat Pump
The heat pump is an air conditioner and a heater in one. Most commercial HVAC systems should be maintained on a regular basis. This includes the yearly checkup from a professional, but also daily upkeep that includes the unit.
To clean the heat pump, you will first have to turn off power to the unit at the main breaker box. You should also turn off water supply to unit. Using a vacuum cleaner with brush attachment, clean the filters inside and outside of building.
As you do this, remember to blow dust away from coils with a high-powered hose or leaf blower. Finally, wash off dirt, grease and debris from outside of coil fins using a high-concentration household cleaner mixed in water with a stiff brush.
For better convenience and results, it is highly recommended that you have a professional clean and maintain your HVAC unit. It is then that you can ensure it operates efficiently at all times.
