Commercial HVAC Winterization
As the summer temps cool down, it’s a sign that it’s officially autumn in sunny Arizona. This transition also means it’s time for businesses to prepare their commercial HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system for the fall season. Why? Proper maintenance can avert potential breakdowns and pricy repairs.
Schedule Professional Inspection with Express Facility Management
Arrange for a comprehensive inspection by one of our certified HVAC technicians. They’ll evaluate the system’s components, including the furnace, heat exchanger, vents, and controls, ensuring everything functions optimally.
Clean and Replace Air Filters
Dirty air filters hinder airflow and reduce system efficiency. Replace or clean air filters regularly to maintain good indoor air quality and optimize HVAC performance.
Check Thermostat Settings
Calibrate and program thermostats to accommodate temperature changes. Ensure they switch from cooling to heating mode and accurately reflect your business’s operating hours.
Inspect and Clean Air Ducts
Dust, debris, and allergens accumulate in air ducts over time, impacting air quality and system efficiency. Schedule a cleaning with our team to have the ductwork inspected (to ensure proper airflow).
Test Carbon Monoxide Detectors
As heating systems kick into gear, it’s essential to ensure that carbon monoxide detectors are functional and batteries are replaced regularly for safety.
Check HVAC Exterior
Inspect the outdoor components of your HVAC system. Clear debris, leaves, and any obstructions from the vents and units to prevent airflow blockages.
Seal Leaks and Insulate
Inspect doors, windows, and other potential areas for air leaks. Schedule an appointment with one of our utility technicians to seal them properly to prevent heat loss, which helps maintain consistent indoor temperature and reduces energy costs.
Benefits of Commercial HVAC Winterization
Investing time and resources into fall HVAC maintenance brings numerous advantages to businesses:
- Improved Energy Efficiency: A well-maintained system operates more efficiently, reducing energy consumption and lowering utility bills.
- Extended Equipment Lifespan: Regular maintenance increases the longevity of HVAC equipment, saving businesses from premature replacements.
- Enhanced Indoor Air Quality: Clean filters and ducts improve indoor air quality.
