Routine upkeep can help prolong the efficiency of your commercial HVAC system. It’s also essential to maintaining good indoor air quality. Experts recommend having your equipment inspected and serviced before the start of the heating and cooling seasons. Doing so will ensure it stays efficient all-year-round.
Here are things you should add to your spring maintenance checklist.
Schedule a professional inspection and tune-up. This spring, you should have a professional HVAC inspection and tune-up. Expect your technician to check the refrigerant level, electrical connections and other system components. They’ll also look for leaks in your ductwork that can affect your equipment’s efficiency and increase energy costs.
Have your ducts sealed. Ductwork issues can affect the overall energy efficiency of your HVAC system. Holes or gaps in the ducts will allow conditioned air to escape, resulting in poor equipment performance. If your spaces have been difficult to heat or cool, it could be that the ductwork has problems. Should this be the case, contact a professional immediately because you might need an air duct sealing service.
Get a new thermostat. Upgrading your thermostat can do wonders for your HVAC system’s performance. A smart thermostat allows you to control your building’s indoor temperature even when you’re not around. You can change the settings depending on whether your place is occupied or not, which will help you cut down on heating and cooling costs.
Invest in a new HVAC system. Sometimes maintenance and repairs can’t restore the efficiency of your heating and cooling system. It’s normal for an HVAC system’s performance to decline as it ages. The last thing you want to happen in the middle of summer is an AC malfunction or breakdown. Tackling your HVAC replacement this spring can help you avoid this inconvenience.
