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.
