Commercial Air Conditioner Maintenance

 

Your air conditioner is a necessity for your business. Whether you need to keep your customers cool during the summer, or keeping your employees comfortable, your air conditioner needs to stay up and running. Stay up-to-date with your annual maintenance services for your commercial HVAC system to prevent it from failing.

 

Best Advice to Maintain Your Commercial Air Conditioner

 

We have provided some advice to prevent issues from developing in your air conditioner unit.

 

Clean Your Air Filters

Be sure to check your air conditioner’s air filter monthly. If you find the filter to be dirty, then replace or clean it. Your air filter can become clogged if you do not change it regularly. Air flow throughout your business will be restricted, which causes your air conditioner to work harder than I should, so you will get unnecessary wear and tear on the equipment and an increase in your energy bill.

 

Clean the Equipment

Your air conditioner’s individual parts require regular cleaning to avoid dirt, grime, and other obstructions from making it run less efficiently. Dust and dirt around the air conditioner and ducts can be cleaned with a shop vacuum.

 

Clear the Area Around the Unit to Allow Free Air Flow

The exterior of your air conditioner must be free of obstructions. Bushes need to be trimmed back and other plants and greenery should not grow too close to the unit.

 

Schedule an Annual Inspection by a Professional

Prior to the cooling season begins, be sure to schedule a yearly maintenance check-up to keep your air conditioner running as efficiently as possible. With an Aire Serv® Total Comfort Tune-Up, you can rest assured that your air conditioner is in its best shape to last for years to come. Also, our professional Aire Serv® techs are able to address smaller issues that can potentially become larger, more expensive problems in the future.

 

Know the Type of Air Conditioner You Own

The way you maintain your air conditioner depends on the type of unit you have. There are several different types of A/C units.

 

Some common air conditioning systems are:

  • Ductless split systems, that use indoor and outdoor units, but without a duct system.
  • Split system units, that make use of an outdoor and indoor unit.
  • Packaged air conditioners, which remain outside.

 

 

Maintenance for Commercial Heat Pumps & Furnaces

 

Commercial heat pumps and furnaces require routine maintenance to remain safe and efficient. The majority of heating systems need to be inspected by a professional technician during fall to ensure the system is operating correctly.

 

As a building manager, there are a few tips you can perform to keep your system running smoothly between tune-ups:

 

  • Keep your intake and blower vents clear of obstructions
  • Inspect filters and replace or clean re-usable models
  • Vacuum and clean the furnace and the areas surrounding it
  • Make sure the thermostat is functioning correctly
  • If the wiring is frayed, worn, or disconnected -- call your Aire Serv® technician
  • Check for leaks -- if you smell gas, leave the business and call a professional

 

Individual furnace components will wear out, quicker during periods of heavy use. Emergency repair calls during sub-freezing temperatures generally occur due to the system being neglected until it quite functioning.

 

The optimal time to request a furnace or heat pump tune-up is in the fall months.
