Although commercial heating systems are built sturdy enough to last for years, they do require periodical service and maintenance in order to continue working properly over a long period of time. They might be heavy duty machines crafted to withstand daily use, but they are also finely-tuned instruments. This means that, like other finely-tuned instruments, they can lose their effectiveness without proper servicing. Without regular service and maintenance, your HVAC heating system could end up costing you much more money than was expected – or necessary.
When Is Maintenance Required?
A great way to prevent your commercial heating system from malfunctioning is to schedule routine maintenance check-ups. These should be carried out at least once a year, much like the yearly check ups we have. Its best to have this servicing done during the summer or early fall months, before cold weather returns. This way, your system will never be out of use when it is most needed.
What will a professional do during a maintenance check up?
During your HVAC system maintenance check, some of the things your technician will do include:
check the level of the refrigerant
adjust refrigerant level if necessary
check for obstructions (and clear them, if necessary)
clean the coil
check the fan motor
lubricate the fan motor
replace the air filters
check for gas leaks (which can not only be damaging to your HVAC heating system, but dangerous as well)
Your technician will also turn your HVAC system on so that they may perform further checks. Your technician may check to see if your equipment is making any strange noises. He or she will also ensure that the airflow is adjusted, take measurements of the system pressure, and check for any leaks in the ductwork. If a problem is suspected, additional checks may also need to be performed, depending upon the nature of the issue.
Besides providing you with a system which offers your business the comfort it needs during the cold months, this routine maintenance and repair service will also increase the efficiency and longevity of your HVAC system.
Avoid costly repairs with periodical service & maintenance
Problems do not typically appear out of nowhere, but instead are caused by regular use over time. Often, there are warning signs – such as your heating system not generating enough heat or making strange noises when it is turned on. In many cases these problems can be detected in the early stages, making it possible to prevent them from getting worse and severely damaging your HVAC system. It is important to prevent small issues from turning into larger ones, which may, in turn, require costly repairs and unnecessary down time of your HVAC system. Regular check-ups can help prevent nagging issues from occurring and getting progressively worse.
