Many HVAC system repairs that service technicians complete in Suffolk, Virginia, commercial buildings are avoidable. If you properly maintain your building’s HVAC system, you won’t have to pay extra money to cover emergency repairs. Below are three common problems you might face unless you schedule regular maintenance for the commercial HVAC system in your building.
Clogged Air Filter
If you notice a drop in air quality or higher utility bills, check if your air filter has clogged. Your air filter works to catch debris, dust and other contaminants. But after a while, those contaminants will build up. A clogged filter restricts airflow while overworking your HVAC system. Change your air filter at least every three months so you can enjoy clean indoor air and use less energy. As a result, you’ll minimize heating costs.
When your HVAC system isn’t heating your building adequately, it can be difficult to diagnose why it’s happening. Insufficient heating can happen for a multitude of reasons. It could be that your ducts are leaking, your building isn’t properly insulated, or your HVAC system is too large or small for the space in your building. A checkup from a service technician can address these issues and prevent higher heating costs.
Wear and Tear
Over time, no system can withstand years of wear and tear. No HVAC system is self-sustaining. You’ll need to have parts replaced as needed and schedule tune-ups to ensure your system is running efficiently. Having a service technician check your commercial HVAC system at least once a year is always a good rule of thumb. If you simply wait for your system to break down, you’ll pay more to have it repaired or replaced.
