Prevention Tips for Commercial HVAC Problems


Numerous commercial HVAC challenges tend to arise during the cold months of winter. Having the knowledge to prevent these issues will enable you to head off worse HVAC issues that could arise and help you avoid spending more to fix them. In this post, heating installation expert John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. shares the commercial HVAC problems that are common during the winter and how to prevent them.

Inconsistent Temperatures

Most of the time, your commercial HVAC system operates in heating mode for several hours, then shifts into a cooling mode to meet your comfort needs. Continuously changing temperatures can significantly affect the performance of your HVAC system. One factor that can affect your temperature control in the building is the number of people inside and the presence of office equipment or machinery. To properly control the temperature, consult your HVAC contractor about whether your current thermostat fits your HVAC system and needs.

Sudden System Shutdowns

Your HVAC system sometimes has to work double-time due to inconsistent weather, which can result in unexpected system shutdowns, leaving the people inside the building uncomfortable. To avoid these sudden shutdowns, make sure to regularly conduct preventive maintenance so that all components of your HVAC system are in good shape.

Energy Inefficiency and High Operating Costs

If your HVAC system becomes worn out and shows signs of energy inefficiency, the best way to address this issue is to conduct routine maintenance so that you’ll be reducing operating costs over the winter. Take precautionary measures before issues become out of your control.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

Overlooking maintenance of your HVAC filters can result in poor air quality. As a business owner, it’s best to invest in a high-quality filter. If you continue checking and cleaning or replacing them regularly, you’ll be able to ensure good indoor air quality.
