HVAC maintenance is an important step to prepare your business for spring. A tune-up helps your commercial cooling systems operate at peak efficiency for better performance and lower energy consumption throughout cooling season. Estes Commercial offers the maintenance services your Atlanta business needs for optimal performance.
What Does Commercial HVAC Maintenance Involve?
HVAC maintenance for commercial cooling systems is a comprehensive inspection and tune-up for cooling components. The following key areas of your commercial cooling system are addressed during HVAC maintenance:
Condensing units become clogged with debris such as fallen leaves and sticks over the fall. Winter storms and temperature changes lead to ice formation on equipment and pressure on components.
Therefore, service includes thorough cleaning of condensing units, including condenser coils. Technicians also remove obstructions which could damage equipment during operation.
In addition, all components are checked for damage and operation is tested during HVAC maintenance.
Cooling system wiring is especially at risk for damage over the cold season, due to rodents seeking shelter within equipment. Techs inspect wiring for proper connections and insulation damage, and repaired or replaced if necessary.
Techs also test electrical connections so commercial cooling system components draw proper amounts of power during operation.
For a commercial cooling system to operate effectively, refrigerant levels must be correct. HVAC maintenance measures refrigerant levels to detect leaks and make repairs prior to the start of cooling season.
Once integrity is confirmed, technicians add refrigerant to the system and charge it for proper performance per the system’s specifications.
Cooling systems produce condensation which must drain for proper operation. Maintenance cleans drain lines and condensation drip pans of accumulated winter debris and clear any clogs.
Technicians remove mineral deposits and add algae growth inhibiting agents if necessary to prevent accumulation of mold and algae during the summer months.
Debris builds up on evaporator coils as commercial cooling systems run. This buildup inhibits the cooling process and reduces the coil’s available area for heat transfer. During maintenance, your technician cleans coils and removes debris for proper performance.
Commercial maintenance addresses cooling system filters, which require changing on a regular basis. Service also includes a filter inspection and replacement if necessary.
This allows air to flow freely through the cooling system for the best performance and efficiency. Filter changes are necessary throughout the year to maintain proper airflow and strong performance of all commercial heating and air equipment.
Benefits of HVAC Maintenance
HVAC maintenance is essential for Atlanta business owners. With regular maintenance, you’ll benefit from:
- Better energy efficiency as your system operates at peak performance. This reduces your facility’s utility bills and operating costs.
- Decreased risk of breakdowns, as your system is fully inspected and tuned up prior to use. HVAC maintenance reduces impacted productivity caused by HVAC system failures.
