Commercial HVAC systems always need to be in top condition. Otherwise, work and business will likely be disrupted, leading to potential loss of resources and profits. That’s why, as a general rule of thumb, you should keep your building’s HVAC system well-maintained in order to avoid interruptions and costly repairs.
In this post, Cooper Bros, a top-rated AC and furnace replacement expert, shares two essential tips for preventing expensive emergency service calls.
Create a preventive maintenance program. Preventive maintenance involves regular inspections and tune-ups (at least once a year) to carry out small repairs and prevent issues from causing extensive damage to the system. So instead of waiting for your HVAC system to break down, you should have it checked regularly in order to stay on top of its current condition and detect any problems that may start developing. It’s highly recommended that you work with a qualified HVAC contractor and come up with a maintenance program that will help you in the long-term care of your system.
Learn how to recognize early warning signs. It’s best to perform heating or AC repairs while the problem is still in its early stages. This way, you can get ahead of the issue and prevent it from becoming bigger over time. If you notice any of the following symptoms in your HVAC system, let your trusted contractor know immediately.
- Strange odors – Unusual smells coming from your heating and cooling systems could possibly indicate a leak — which means your HVAC equipment might have some underlying issues that need immediate attention.
- AC blowing hot air or furnace giving off cool air – This is another sign that something is wrong with your HVAC system. It’s best to call your HVAC contractor for an inspection if this occurs.
- HVAC unit shutting off abruptly – Of course, your HVAC equipment shouldn’t turn off by itself, so if it does, make sure to call up your local technician.
