How to Prevent Commercial HVAC Repair

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Of course, it’s never ideal to have to call a technician to your business for heating and air conditioning repair. Many commercial properties have commercial HVAC units that are located outdoors on the rooftop or heating systems that are in hidden areas of the building, so a technician should be able to avoid getting in the way of the daily operation of your business. But when the weather outside is too hot or too cold to bear with, a heating or AC breakdown can leave you without any customers or employees, costing you even more.

Take the following steps to help prevent the need for light commercial HVAC repair in Plainfield, and call DuAll Heating & Cooling to speak with a professional.

Take Any Complaints about Your Commercial Unit Seriously

You’re a busy person, and sometimes, when an employee, tenant, client, or customer complains about the temperature in the room, you may be tempted to take matters into your own hands. Often, when you hear that there is not enough heat in a room, the solution seems obvious—crank up the temperature. But if the temperature in the room doesn’t seem to be what’s displayed on the thermostat, you’re probably not doing your unit any favors by continuing to let it run.

Be sure to take any complaints about the performance of your commercial system seriously. One failing component can start a domino effect that leaves many of the other components unable to function as well. A seemingly minor heating issue can indicate major trouble inside of the unit or that a simple cleaning is in order. Catching the trouble now will be far less costly than noticing the issue after a breakdown.

Schedule Regular HVAC Maintenance

The best way to prevent repairs altogether is by scheduling light commercial HVAC maintenance every year or twice a year. During a maintenance visit, a technician will clean and adjust components of your unit that could be contributing to inefficiency. These adjustments can also help to prevent parts from breaking altogether, as can cleaning dirty parts.

Whether you want to begin a maintenance schedule for the new year or if you need light commercial HVAC repair in Plainfield, call DuAll Heating & Cooling today!

How to Tell Your Commercial HVAC System Needs Repair

Monday, January 5th, 2015

If your commercial HVAC system breaks down completely, there’s no doubt you’ll hear about it. Complaints from customers, clients, employees, and/or tenants are almost guaranteed, particularly in the middle of summer, or during a cold winter’s night. But most likely, you’d rather avoid this situation and catch repair needs before a heating breakdown puts your business out of commission for a spell.

But how can you tell when it’s time to call for commercial HVAC repair?

At DuAll Heating & Cooling, we want to make sure that your commercial property isn’t left in the cold (or heat). Here are a few things you should check on to tell whether you need to schedule repairs.

  • Noises from the Ducts or the Unit: Chances are, you don’t hang around your commercial HVAC unit too often (since many of these are located on the roof of a building). But if you do happen to hear a strange noise (even a small one) from up above, from the boiler unit, or from inside of the ductwork, it could mean trouble with a fan, circulator pump, compressor, or any other vital heating/air conditioning component. This could lead to further trouble later on, which is why it’s important to call for repairs right away.
  • Reduced Heating or Cooling: To some business owners or managers, it may be a given to call for repairs when heating or cooling is suddenly reduced due to the nature of their business. But others suspect that the trouble will improve, or that they can wait a bit longer to call. However, the trouble can worsen as the parts become overworked attempting to get your building to the proper temperature.
  • High Utility Bills: High utilities may be a sign of parts that are working overtime to heat or cool the property, which means something within the unit is not quite right.

A final way to determine that your system is in need of repair is if your technician tells you so during a standard maintenance. At DuAll Heating & Cooling, we recommend you schedule maintenance twice a year with a commercial specialist to avoid sudden breakdowns. For maintenance or commercial HVAC repair in Plainfield, call our office today.

3 Signs that You May Need Commercial Heating System Replacement

Monday, November 10th, 2014

Winters in Illinois can be tough. For your commercial enterprise to thrive during this chilly time, you need to have an efficient and effecting heating system to maintain a comfortable indoor environment. Although regular maintenance and prompt repairs will help keep your business’ heating system operating, eventually an aging heater will reach a point where the best option is to retire it and have professionals install a new one.

Below are three warning signs of a commercial heater that is coming to the end of its life. If you suspect you may need commercial heating system replacement in Bollingbrook, IL soon, contact our specialists at DuAll Heating & Cooling right away. We will help determine if it’s time for a replacement and handle the installation work if it is.

3 ways to tell that you may need heating replacement

  1. Continually rising bills: A single spike in your company’s heating bills may indicate that the system requires repairs. But if the bills keep rising each month, and no amount of repairs or maintenance can stop it, you probably have a system that is too worn down from the decays of age. It is more cost-effective at this point to retire the heater and have a new, energy-efficient model replace it.
  2. Constant noisy operation: Is the sound from your heating system creating a disruption inside the work place? Loud operation is an almost certain sign that the heating system requires repairs, and if this has become the norm rather than the exception, you should consider having the whole system replaced. These sounds usually come from components that are too worn down to work well any more.
  3. High repair costs: Take a look at the bills for the repairs the heating system has needed over the last two years and tally them up against the cost of replacing the system. If the cost of any single repair is half the price of putting in a new heater, then it is costing you far too much to keep the system running. Call for heating technicians to examine the heater and give you a more definite answer about your best path going forward.

Our team of professionals stays up-to-date with the latest developments in commercial HVAC technology, so you will know that your new heating system is state-of-the-art. Put our experience to work for your company.

Schedule Maintenance for Your Plainfield Rooftop Unit Today

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Rooftop units are the perfect commercial HVAC units for both the heating and cooling season. But when you need repairs for your light commercial rooftop unit, it can be a pain, taking up a lot of your time and disrupting the flow of your business day. The best way to prevent repairs from taking up too much time in your day is by scheduling maintenance twice a year. This is to ensure that your unit is at peak performance throughout the heating and cooling season, and it can even help prevent repair needs and save you a lot of money this year.

The Maintenance Process

Your rooftop unit is meant to last a long time, but, because its location on the roof leaves it fairly exposed to the elements, you may run into a few problems over time. Below, we detail a few of the most important steps of maintenance and how they help improve performance, efficiency, and the comfort of everyone in the building.

  • Cleaning: One of the most important steps of maintenance is a thorough cleaning of the various components of your HVAC unit. This is because as parts become dirty, your unit simply is not in top shape. A dirty condenser coil, for example, cannot give off heat effectively, resulting in inefficient cooling. A clogged filter can make the fans work harder, taking far longer to heat or cool your property.
  • Adjustment: Parts of your rooftop unit may become bent or otherwise fall out of place over time. Technicians will look for common problems including loose parts and bent fan blades which simply require a minor adjustment to keep running as they should.
  • Inspection: Perhaps the most important part of professional maintenance is a full system inspection. Many HVAC repair needs go unnoticed for long periods of time because they are too small to have an obvious effect on your building, which is why you need a contractor to tell you when your unit is in need of repairs. Damaged parts wear down your system quickly, resulting in further repairs and, possibly, early replacement.

The Benefits of Regular Commercial AC Maintenance

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Commercial air conditioning systems keep clients, customers, tenants, and employees content. Of course, you know to call for repairs as soon as you notice problems with your AC so that you don’t receive any complaints from the people in your building. But if you don’t schedule regular commercial HVAC maintenance with a commercial specialist, you may need repairs sooner than you think.

Commercial HVAC maintenance benefits your business in many ways, increasing the energy-efficiency of your unit, ensuring high performance, and reducing the need for repairs throughout the year. Here are some of the services covered with annual maintenance and how your commercial property benefits.

Clean and Adjust Components

One way technicians keep your commercial AC system running efficiently is by cleaning the coils and removing debris whenever necessary. The evaporator and condenser coils are responsible for removing heat from your home and releasing it outdoors. If these are dirty, you may have limited cooling, causing your system to work harder than it needs to, and you may eventually feel no cool air at all.

Additionally, a technician will look at the refrigerant levels to see if they require any adjustment. Low refrigerant significantly reduces the cooling power of your system and may cause the compressor to fail. The technician may also add lubrication to the motors and adjust any bent parts such as the condenser fins.

Inspect Your System

Furthermore, a commercial specialist will inspect your system for any damages that may require attention. This way, you can schedule repairs as soon as possible so you won’t run into sudden problems later on.

However, if you don’t choose a commercial specialist experienced with large commercial systems, the technician may be unfamiliar with the layout of your packaged system. Residential technicians may not know the proper refrigerant level required for larger systems, or they may skip over crucial components during inspection.  Our technicians are experienced with larger packaged systems and can help your system cool your commercial property efficiently for years to come!

Don’t trust your commercial HVAC maintenance needs to just any technician. Contact the experts at DuAll Heating & Cooling for commercial HVAC maintenance in Naperville.
