Does Your Commercial Air Conditioning Need Repair?

Monday, April 6th, 2015

We are finally starting to see some warmer weather in our area, and if you have a commercial space, this means you’ll soon be switching from heating to cooling. While you need to be aware of potential problems developing with your commercial HVAC system year-round , the switch between seasons is especially important. Why? Part of your system has been dormant for a few months, and there is the possibility that an issue may have developed during that time. So what kinds of things should you keep an eye out for? Here are some tips from the commercial AC experts at Bartels Heating & Cooling:

Poor Performance

Is your thermostat set to 72 degrees and it feels like it’s almost 80 degrees indoors? Does your AC seem sluggish? Poor performance is a telltale sign of a system in need, so if you are seeing these signs, or are simply questioning whether or not your system is operating as it should, call for an expert.

Sky-High Energy Bills

Have you noticed a significant increase in your business’s monthly energy bills, but haven’t changed how you use your AC? When a part or an assembly in your air conditioning system malfunctions, it will create stress on the system; anytime your system is stressed, it will use more energy to operate. It can be tempting to wait for a full breakdown before calling for help, but this is never advisable. If you are seeing very high, inordinate energy bills, call a professional for assistance.

Strange Sounds

Your commercial AC system is designed to operate with minimal noise, so any kind of loud sound is typically a solid indication that a problem has developed. Examples of abnormal sounds would be clunking, banging, screeching, and anything else that sounds of out of the ordinary in regard to the system’s operation.

It’s critical to the operation of your business to have a cool, comfortable atmosphere in which to work – don’t compromise it by hiring an inexpert or amateur person to repair your commercial air conditioner. The commercial specialists at Bartels Heating & Cooling have been serving southwest Ohio since 1973, so call us today for all of your commercial AC needs!

What Makes Commercial HVAC Repair Different from Residential?

Monday, July 21st, 2014

When you need to have repair work done for the HVAC system that keeps your business comfortable throughout the year, it is vital that you only call up technicians qualified for commercial work. No matter how talented a residential repair technician may be, no matter how experienced, if he or she has not done extensive commercial work or received the proper training, the job will not be done right, and your comfort and budget will suffer.

We will look at the ways that commercial HVAC repair in West Chester, OH is different from residential. Our team at Bartels Heating & Cooling has worked with both since 1973. We have high qualifications to handle any type of repair work you may need for commercial HVAC. We offer 24-hour emergency service, so we are always ready whenever your commercial heating and cooling encounters trouble.

The Differences in Commercial Repair Work

The most obvious difference between commercial and residential heating and cooling is size: the heating and cooling capacity for a commercial system must service a larger space and more people. But how does this affect repairs? One way is that commercial systems are modular, and often contain multiple packaged units to accommodate the needs of a large work space. A residential repair technician only has one unit to check, whereas a commercial repair technician must perform more extensive inspections to find which of the various units—and it might be more than one—is malfunctioning. The size of the system also means a more complicated series of dampers and thermostats; this intricacy of the system calls for specific training to remedy problems.

The majority of commercial units are packaged units, which means they contain all the components of a residential indoor and outdoor cabinet inside a single cabinet. Packaged units are configured much differently than other systems and require special training for their repairs and maintenance.

When doing repairs for a commercial system, a technician must have more in mind than maintaining comfort for the people inside the building. The system must also stay within local electrical codes. This is one of the reasons that you need to hire commercial specialists for your repairs, as you cannot take the chance of your building failing to stay up to code.

Schedule Service as Soon as You Need It

Don’t risk a breakdown in the comfort system that keeps your workplace viable for both employees and clients around the year.
