Steps Entailed in Commercial HVAC Maintenance

Monday, July 14th, 2014

During a hot and humid summer in Savannah, GA, commercial HVAC maintenance isn’t an option—it’s a necessity. Your employees, customers, clients, and/or tenants won’t be able to get along for very long with the air conditioning malfunctioning or completely out of commission, which is a major risk if you don’t have preventive maintenance done. Even if the air conditioning maintains its normal level of cooling through the summer, your budget will suffer because of the drop in efficiency that will happen without a maintenance tune-up.

It’s easy to arrange maintenance for your company’s HVAC system: call up AAction Air and speak to our commercial service technicians. We can handle the maintenance fast and effectively, with minimum disruption to business. If you haven’t had a maintenance visit for the season yet, don’t hesitate any longer.

Some of the steps involved in commercial HVAC maintenance

Your business probably has a rooftop package HVAC system, in which case the maintenance will go fast and the technicians can do most of the work without any interference in the workspace.

The technicians will check all the important components of the package unit to see that they are operating correctly and not in danger of wearing down and malfunctioning in the near future. Here are some of the key steps:

  • Check refrigerant level. If there is any depletion in the refrigerant, the technicians will use leak detection equipment to find where the leaks are occurring.
  • Looking over the compressor. The compressor is the most crucial component in the whole HVAC system, since it creates the energy for the refrigerant that allows for the heat exchange that creates both heating and cooling.
  • Operation of the engines. The technicians will see that the key engines that run the compressor and the fans are properly lubricated and not in danger of running down.
  • Cleaning the coils. The evaporator and condenser coils will receive cleaning if necessary so that they properly absorb and release heat.

After this, maintenance will move on to check the ductwork system to see if there are any leaks causing a loss of air pressure. The check-up will then investigate the thermostats to see that they are operating and communicating correctly. The technicians will perform airflow checks from the vents and temperature checks to make sure that everything is working as it should. They will only consider their work done when they are certain that your HVAC system is operating the best it can and has no repair issues. They will make small adjustments to fix minor problems, and for larger problems they will help you schedule the repair work.

Have maintenance done sooner rather than later!

In general, you should schedule your maintenance checks for your system in spring and in fall. However, it’s never too late in the season to have it done… and it’s much better to have it done later than not at all!
