Your air conditioner is essential to running your business. Whether you are keeping your employees comfortable, or cooling off your summer time customers, it is important to keep your system up and running. In order to keep your commercial system running efficiently, keep up with your annual maintenance services.
Here are a few tips so you can prevent problems from developing in your AC unit.
You should check your AC unit’s air filter every month. If the filter is dirty, you should either clean or replace it. Not changing your air filter can result in it becoming clogged. This will not only restrict air flow throughout your home, it will also result in your AC working much harder than it should, which causes unnecessary wear and tear on the equipment and increases your energy costs.
Make sure to clean the individual components of your air conditioner regularly to avoid grime, dirt, and other obstructions from decreasing its efficiency. Use a shop vacuum to clear the dirt and dust around the AC and ducts.
Make sure nothing is obstructing the exterior of your air conditioner. You should keep your bushes trimmed back and make sure no other plants or other greenery grow too close.
Another important part of maintaining your AC is scheduling an annual maintenance checkup—ideally before the cooling season begins—in order to make sure it is working as efficiently as possible. Aire Serv® Total Comfort Tune-up will ensure that your air conditioner is in tip-top working shape and that it will last for years to come. Plus, our experts at Aire Serv® can address smaller problems that could grow into larger, much more costly issues in the future.
There are a number of different types of air conditioning units, and the way you maintain it will depend on the type of unit you own.
Some common AC units include:
Commercial furnaces and heat pumps need routine maintenance to stay efficient and safe. Most heating systems should be inspected by an expert technician every fall to make sure the system is operating correctly.
There are a few things you can do as a building manager to keep your system running smoothly between tune-ups:
Consistent operation can put a lot of stress and strain on individual furnace components, which will wear out faster during periods of heavy use. The main reason for emergency repair calls during sub-freezing temperatures, is that the system was neglected until it stopped working.
The best time to schedule your furnace tune-up is during the off season, such as the fall months.
