Avoid These 3 Common Commercial HVAC Repairs
Your HVAC system works hard in the summer to keep your Middleburg, Florida, commercial property cool. Any problem in the system not only affects the comfort level of your employees, clients, and guests but it also impacts their productivity and safety. Regular preventive maintenance can help businesses avoid common HVAC repairs like insufficient cooling, uneven air circulation, and strange noises.
This is one of the most common issues business owners in Middleburg and surrounding areas call us to fix. There can be several reasons behind your HVAC system not being able to properly cool your commercial property. Most often, it’s something as simple as a clogged air filter that needs replacement. Another common reason can be a faulty thermostat causing temperature fluctuations. Sometimes, it can even be a leakage or low level of refrigerant behind inadequate cooling.
One common indicator for all of these cases is a sharp rise in energy bills. In all three cases, your HVAC system works harder and longer.
Uneven Air Circulation
If some areas of your property cool faster than others, your HVAC system might need repair. The cooled air must travel through a number of ducts before reaching the vents at different locations. A zone control system, involving a series of dampers, regulates the airflow inside the ducts. Over time, some of these dampers become stuck and do not function properly, causing uneven cooling.
If you hear any unusual noise coming out of your HVAC system, you should call in a professional to identify the cause. A leakage in compressor usually causes a hissing noise, while a bad fan belt can be the reason behind a squealing sound. A damaged fan blade often causes a clanking noise. However, most commercial units are located away from the working area and people often tend to miss these indicators.
Investing in a regular commercial maintenance program is the best thing you can do to keep these HVAC issues at bay.
