Optimizing Efficiencies Through HVAC Preventive Maintenance

Optimizing Efficiencies Through HVAC Preventive Maintenance

Expert commercial HVAC technicians perform regular services so your operation is safe, efficient, and reliable. Securing trusted partnerships advances your service levels and avoids inconsistent solutions for your business. Diagnosing and tracking your commercial HVAC maintenance needs allows your team to transition your system seamlessly between seasons, guided through expert feedback and consultation.

Personalize Your Maintenance Needs

Commercial HVAC systems require specific services depending on design, usage type, system age, local climate, and total capacity. Before beginning a general maintenance plan, understand that your system has unique needs, and expert commercial HVAC partnerships deliver personalized solutions that create efficiencies and reduce costs.

Quality Commercial HVAC Technicians do the following:

  • Diagnose and repair control circuits.
  • Consult on replacements or repairs.
  • Read electrical diagrams.
  • Analyze system data.
  • Optimize efficiencies and performance.
  • Identify and correct refrigerant issues.
  • Assess compressor operation.

Creating a Checklist

  1. Refrigerant levels: Undercharged and overcharged pressures impair cooling capacity and efficiency. Expert HVAC technicians will diagnose these levels and proactively correct your system, more importantly, before peak seasons. Additionally, all connections are diagnosed for leaks. Lost refrigerant through leaks reduces cooling capacity and increases costs.
  2. Condenser and Evaporator Coils: Keeping coils clean through technicians professionally brushing, pressure washing, or utilizing industry-grade cleaners maintains proper airflow for heat transfer and prevents the system from expending unnecessary energy.
  3. Air Filters: Expert HVAC technicians inspect filters and diagnose the proper times for replacement. Clogged filters reduce airflow to your system, straining the motor and creating inefficiencies that increase costs.
  4. Belts and Pulleys: Optimal belt tension and alignment prevent sliding, uneven wear, and undue stress on bearings. By inspecting pulleys and ensuring belts have proper tension, expert technicians will adjust your components as necessary and consult your team on replacement periods.
  5. Fan and Motor Bearings: Periodically lubricating bearings allow your system to remain efficient, while providing technicians the opportunity to assess bearings that must be replaced based on touch or sound.
  6. Drainage and Drain Pans: Inspecting buildup with your drain pan prevents backups, water damage, mold growth, and drainage into unwanted areas. Treatments that prevent backups and system cleanings are performed during regularly scheduled preventive maintenance.
  7. Electrical Connections: Regular maintenance includes inspecting HVAC system electrical components and securing and creating connecting points. Connections that are not secured properly will lead to system downtimes while ignoring this maintenance can cause equipment failure.
  8. Controls and Safety Cutoffs: Temperature sensors on the evaporator coil that monitor refrigerant temperature and safety devices within your system that prevent damage from excessive refrigerant pressure must be regularly assessed by expert technicians for optimal system operation.

Recognize the Age of Your System

The life expectancy of your system depends on design and system usage, with an average lifespan of 15-to-20 years. The projected life expectancy of your system is critical to developing a maintenance plan and securing your ideal commercial HVAC partnership.

Develop Sustainable Relationships

Regular maintenance diagnoses potential system failures before they occur. Recurring maintenance from expert technicians guarantees timely responses that avoid costly downtimes. Poor communication and inconsistent service from separate relationships will place your team in a position of consistent breakdowns, increased utility costs, and less-than-ideal customer experiences.
