Here come the hot days of spring and summer. When hot weather arrives, will your commercial building be prepared to tackle the heat? When was the last time you checked your commercial building’s HVAC system? Here are some things you should do to get your commercial HVAC system ready for the heat.
Clean and Replace Air Filters
Air filters can quickly become dirty and clogged with contaminants. Before the summer heat arrives, be sure to have them cleaned and replaced. Air filters that remain clogged can cause your commercial building to feel stuffy and uncomfortable. That’s why it’s always best to have the air filters replaced before it gets too hot.
Like your HVAC system’s air filters, its ductwork can also become dirty and clogged. Filthy ductwork will negatively impact air quality and make it difficult to breathe in your building. Having your ductwork cleaned by a professional team can help better prepare your facility to handle everything that comes with the heat.
If you are noticing problems with your HVAC system, the first thing you should do is check the thermostat. Ensure it is working properly and in good condition. Commercial buildings often experience intense thermostat battles between occupants. When that happens, it can indicate that your HVAC system isn’t evenly distributing airflow. If there is something wrong with the thermostat, immediately have it fixed by a professional MD commercial HVAC company.
Schedule a Tune-up
Early spring is an ideal time to schedule a tune-up for your commercial HVAC. If your HVAC system hasn’t been serviced in a while, get it done before the building is sweltering. Having the system tuned-up before the hot summer months will enhance its overall performance and prevent extensive damage.
Plan Preventative Maintenance
Don’t wait until things go wrong with your HVAC system—plan preventative maintenance throughout the spring and summer. Your HVAC system is complex, so it’s not something you can service yourself. Make sure to schedule regular maintenance with a professional HVAC company. They’ll ensure that your system is always ready to handle whatever weather conditions lie ahead.
