  • Inspection of condensate drain — Inspect the condensate drain in order to prevent clogs and the risk of water damage to your property.

  • Perform coil cleaning — Ensure evaporator and condenser coils are cleaned. This is an important part of your commercial HVAC preventative maintenance, and it should be performed regularly, especially during spring time. For instance, your HVAC coils could be clogged with pollen and plant debris during the spring, which can inhibit proper cooling.

  • Safety control testing — Safety controls are tested in case of an emergency shutdown.

  • Refrigerant charge level check — Inspect system for refrigerant leaks and address accordingly.

  • Ductwork inspection — Check for leaks in ductwork for proper airflow.

  • Perform overall system performance assessment — Evaluate the overall performance of the system. Make recommendations for improvement.

This is general guidance about what a commercial HVAC tune-up may look like for your building. Ultimately, the exact specifics will depend on your unit or system. Our licensed and NATE-certified HVAC technicians work with it all regardless of your unit type and brand.
