As a commercial building owner or manager, you’re responsible for making sure your Venice, Florida, commercial HVAC system is working properly to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. Learn more about what you can do to keep your commercial HVAC system at peak efficiency.
Change Air Filters Regularly
Air filters are crucial to a commercial system because of the high volume of air that passes through. The condition of the air filter can also impact the overall efficiency of the system, not to mention the indoor air quality of the space. When a filter is dirty or clogged, it can’t remove contaminants from the air, resulting in poor air quality that can impact the health of your employees, customers or tenants and others in the space.
Be sure to change filters every month or two months, or according to the unit’s owner’s manual.
Clean the Unit’s Exterior
The blockage of vents or registers can also lead to reduced airflow and poor efficiency. Dust, dirt, and other particles can get stuck in air vents and ducts throughout the system, preventing crucial air flow. Furniture like desks, tables, and chairs can also get in the way of necessary air flow areas that risk bringing down your commercial HVAC unit’s efficiency.
Make it standard maintenance practice to check for furniture blockages and thoroughly clean registers and the area around them.
Schedule Routine Maintenance
Other critical maintenance tasks for your commercial system are best left to a skilled HVAC professional with commercial unit experience for a tuneup twice a year. During a tuneup, the technician tests the system, checks the cooling system’s refrigerant level, inspects all components, and calibrates the controls. If anything isn’t working properly, the technician can talk to you about issues and take care of the repairs right away.
By keeping up with regular maintenance, you can feel confident that your commercial HVAC system is operating efficiently and all components are in good condition.
