A commercial Heating and Air Checklist reviews the vital maintenance tasks you must complete for optimal performance. Commercial heating and air systems play a critical role in both comfort and productivity. Soon, the temperatures will rise and your commercial heating and air system must be ready to go to work.
Estes Commercial helps Atlanta business owners get these vital systems up to speed for heavy usage come summertime.
Commercial Heating and Air Checklist
Each spring, run through our Commercial Heating and Air Checklist to ensure your HVAC systems are properly maintained.
- Professional preventative commercial heating and air maintenance
While there are many maintenance tasks facility managers and maintenance staff perform, service by a professional commercial HVAC company is necessary each spring. This service provides a complete tune-up and cleaning for your cooling system.
Each component receives the attention and care it needs to perform correctly during the coming season. This way, flaws in your commercial heating and air system are found early, so repairs are made before periods of high use.
This is critical to prevent breakdowns that diminish productivity at your Atlanta facility. Early repairs prevent extensive damage with the potential to take your cooling equipment out of commission for an extended period.
An investment in commercial heating and air maintenance safeguards your business against numerous expenses.
- Check and change air filters
Air filters in your commercial heating and air system must be replaced on a regular basis. If you fail to do so, airflow is limited through the system. This causes excessive energy consumption, increases wear and tear, and potentially leads to breakdowns.
In the spring (and monthly throughout the year), examine your system’s air filters and replace as needed. Keep a log for your maintenance staff, with reminders when the filters are due for their next change.
If your facility skips filter changes, you end up paying for it through underperforming commercial heating and air equipment.
Indoor Air Quality Systems
Your facility’s indoor air quality systems require care as well:
- Change UV light bulbs
Depending on the model installed within your commercial heating and air system, UV light air cleaners need their bulbs changed every one to three years.
- Check dehumidifier drainage systems
If your facility has a dehumidifier, make sure its drain lines are clear. Clogs in the drainage system prevent excess moisture from flowing out. Backups lead to water damage as well as more moisture in your air.
This has the potential to cause mold growth. You do not want mold spores in your heating and cooling system. Airborne mold spores can make people sick. For managers, this means more employees miss work.
- Review automation schedules
With Daylight Savings Time, your building automation controls may need adjustments for proper start and stop times. Also, many facilities have extended summer operation hours – make sure your schedules are set to keep the workplace comfortable and operational while staffed.
