HVAC maintenance is so important for any business. Maintaining your HVAC system through commercial HVAC maintenance will greatly save the amount of energy your equipment uses.
A Commercial HVAC Maintenance Checklist will help you with the steps needed in order to keep your building’s HVAC equipment in top shape, and lasting longer.
Preventative Commercial HVAC Maintenance
Not all businesses require the same needs from their HVAC systems. You should always have a ‘customized’ commercial HVAC maintenance plan. These plans may be offered through your preferred contractor, and will provide the specific care your system needs to boost performance and run properly.
Scheduled maintenance should always be performed in the spring for cooling systems, and performed in the fall for heating systems.
This service should always be performed by a licensed commercial HVAC technician. Preventative maintenance on a building’s HVAC system helps to keep it running smoothly and efficiently throughout each season.
The following steps will help to repair any existing issues and prevent future performance problems from occurring:
-Make sure all coil and cabinets are inspected and cleaned
-Drain all pans, and make sure all condensate lines are cleared of obstructions
-Inspect the compressor
-Inspect all fan motor and blades
-Control box, switches, wiring, and safety controls should all be inspected
-Check and make sure the refrigerant level is measured and recharged if necessary
-Check and clean blower assembly
-Replace belts if needed
-Clean combustion blower housing
-Check and make sure evaporator coils, drip pans, and condensate lines are cleaned and cleared
-Inspected burner assembly
-Clean ignition system
-Test safety controls
-Check fluid system for dislocations and wear
-Inspect the control box. Make sure all wiring, and connections are checked and tightened
-Replace air filter
Air filters should be inspected every three to four weeks to ensure the filter has not become clogged with debris.
You should change your air filters every three to six months.
Stay on top of air filter checks and changes, as restricted airflow through the HVAC systems can hinder the performance and increase energy use.
