Summer Is Here: Is Your Commercial Building Comfortable?


Summer has started off really hot and uncomfortable in the South, and unseasonably cool in the Northeast and Midwest. Still, the hot weather for everyone is on the way (if it is not here already!). Regardless of where your office building is located, is it ready to withstand the unbearable heat of the summer season? Commercial HVAC preventive maintenance services can help in all of the following ways. 

Check Your Ventilation System and Clean It

Air-conditioned air has a long way to travel when it has to go up three or more stories. You want to be sure that there is nothing in the vents that can block that comforting, cool air from reaching the topmost floor of the building (or any of the floors below). One way to ensure good airflow is to clean out the entire ventilation system. In a commercial building, this is especially important because you have hundreds of employees all hurrying about and scattering dust and bringing in their own allergens and dirt debris from outside. All of that gets trapped in the ventilation system and should be removed regularly. Preventative maintenance can help you with this task. 

Check and Tune up the A/C

Your commercial air conditioning systems will work overtime trying to keep the entire building cool this summer. Whether your systems are on the roof, outside at the back of the building, or inside in the basement, you will want them checked and tuned up. These massive systems are not like your home air conditioners; they need a lot more attention and more frequent maintenance to make sure that there are no problems with each one of their components. These regular check-ups are the best way to catch something before it breaks completely and replace it right away.

Check the Temperature Controls in the Building

From traditional, electrical, commercial thermostats to the latest in smart controls, your HVAC technician will check your building's temperature controls to see if they are working properly. If the controls are somewhat older, you may want to replace and update them with smart technology. The latest commercial smart technology for air conditioning and heat control systems allows you to set and control the building's temperatures when no one is there as well as when everyone is at work. This can save your company a lot of money in the long run on electricity, as well as on heating and cooling expenses.

Inspecting Your Air Ducts

Last summer, I began to get extremely hot in my home. My air conditioning system couldn’t adequately keep my home cool anymore. Therefore, I contacted an experienced HVAC contractor. This individual visited my home and thoroughly inspected my unit. If your air conditioner isn’t working like it once did, your air ducts may be clogged up. Thankfully, an expert HVAC contractor can determine if faulty air ducts are the cause of the hot temperatures inside your home. On this blog, you will discover how an HVAC contractor can properly inspect your air ducts. Stay cool and comfortable during the hot summer months!
