HVAC maintenance

When it comes to maintaining your Commercial HVAC system, it is not all fun and games. Problems with your commercial HVAC can raise electricity and energy bills and enduring the well-being of others. Not providing proper commercial HVAC maintenance can create problems that are actually altogether avoidable. Below we discuss some of things you can do to keep your favorite commercial HVAC in tiptop

Commercial HVAC checklist

Some things you need to look at in general are musty odors, buildup and mold. Keeping an eye on air vents in the system will help you stop mold and pollutants from entering the air. Be sure to replace filters about every 1 to 6 months. When a filter is dirty looking, it is time to replace it, regardless of how long you can get by. Fixing these problems are very important for both commercial heating and cooling.


Clean your coils

The evaporator and condenser coils need to be cleaned up to twice a year. Because the evaporator coil is constantly damp, it is a common place in which mold will hideout. The supply side of this is exposed to the outside air and dirt in the air, that will need to be cleaned periodically.Although the condenser doesn’t have a part in air quality itself, and may seem less important to check, you should clean this coil as well. It degrades rapidly due to dirt buildup.Once either of these coils is covered in any kind of growth or caked on dirt, they are much harder to clean. Save time and effort by cleaning periodically and consider investing in antimicrobial treatments in between times. They can save time and effort.


Inspect Fans,belts etc.

Inspect the fan, bearings and belts of the system. Aim to do this about twice a year. Again, these items don’t necessarily have a huge impact on air quality, but are important nonetheless.Clean fan blades and check to see if fan motors are running the right direction. A fan can still supply when it is running backwards, so be sure to check that.Check for noise, vibration and heat that may be coming from the bearing area. Aligning your belts will prevent from wear that occurs over time. This includes both tightening and loosening the belts, as either can damage the motor and wear easily.Be sure to look for leaks in the cabinet and supply area about once a year. Some screws and gaskets may be causing leakage and need to be replaced.


Finally, clean and adjust dampers about once a year as well. Problems with damper operation are one of the most common problems in commercial HVAC maintenance.
