Without the right knowledge, commercial HVAC system owners can wind up dealing with unnecessary problems. These are three important tips to follow to keep your Helena, Montana, system operating well.
Check Your System
At the start of the cooling and heating seasons, check the thermostat to ensure proper function. If the thermostat is not working right, it could cause several problems. For example, it could lead to the short cycling of your air conditioning unit. Energy Star recommends that you ensure all electrical connections are in place and secure, check your condensation drain, check the system controls and lubricate moving parts. If you are not comfortable doing these tasks, a commercial heating and cooling tech can perform them during a service call.
Change the Filter
Although people often neglect this commercial HVAC task, it is one that is simple enough that some people can do it without the help of a professional. However, a professional can recommend a customized changing schedule. How often you need to change your filter depends on several factors, such as the air quality in your building, the type of system and how often you use the HVAC system.
Stay on Top of Maintenance
Most professionals recommend having your commercial heating and cooling system inspected and serviced at the start of the cooling season and again at the start of the heating season. During an inspection, the commercial HVAC tech can identify common problems. For example, an air conditioning unit may have a refrigerant leak, an electrical issue or another problem that can easily be fixed. During regular maintenance, a technician will identify small issues before they become costly problems. Scheduling routine HVAC maintenance helps to ensure that your HVAC system is running optimally.
