The Facts About Continuous Operation: Is Running Your Home Air Conditioner 24/7 a Good Idea?
The question of whether it’s detrimental for a home air...
Having a commercial HVAC system installed is a considerable investment, so it makes sense that you want to take care of the system to prolong its life and reduce the need for repairs or a replacement. The best way to maximize your return on investment is to ensure your HVAC system undergoes regular maintenance. This will keep your system running smoothly for longer periods of time as well as take care of small issues before they lead to more costly malfunctions or breakdowns.
Proper maintenance by a licensed commercial HVAC service provider is the best way to prolong the life of your commercial HVAC system. Your HVAC technician will schedule maintenance sessions to inspect your system a few times a year to check that components are in good working condition, and repair or replace any faulty ones.
Beyond these scheduled maintenance sessions, however, it is also important to be aware of potential problems that could affect your system’s efficiency, such as:
Dirty Air Filters: Dirty air filters can restrict airflow, forcing your system to work harder and reducing its efficiency. This can also potentially cause damage that can develop into a safety hazard. Check for signs of dirty air filters such as unpleasant smells or poor air quality. Consult your HVAC service provider to find out how often your system’s filters should be replaced.
Clogged Outdoor Units: Outdoor units are a key part of HVAC systems, as this is where air enters or exits the building. These components are susceptible to blockages from dirt and debris, which can clog the system and reduce the efficiency of the unit. To avoid this, it’s important to make sure that the area surrounding your system’s outdoor unit is cleared of leaves, dirt, grass clippings, etc.
Faulty Thermostats: Thermostats control the temperature and airflow in your building, so it’s important that they are in proper working condition. Frequently adjusting the temperature or changing thermostat settings can damage the component. Always make sure that thermostats in your building are working properly to avoid having to replace this component too often.
If you do notice any issues with your system, such as strange noises, odd smells, decreased airflow, or increasingly high energy bills, be sure to address them right away. Contact an experienced, professional HVAC service provider to inspect and diagnose your system, and repair any problems before they get worse.
By keeping your system properly maintained and taking care of issues when they do pop up, you can successfully prolong the life of your commercial HVAC system and save money.
