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.

Why Are Package Rooftop Units Popular for Commercial HVAC?

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Commercial HVAC systems in West Chester and other local towns have very different needs than residential air conditioning systems. They must handle a larger amount of space, for instance, and keep many more people comfortable. In addition, the demands on them will shift depending upon the particular business occupying the space. An office with a lot of computer hard drives, for instance, will need more air conditioning power than one used solely for paper storage. That creates different needs for office-based HVAC systems that can usually be solved by package rooftop units. Why are package rooftop units popular for commercial HVAC? We’ve provided a brief breakdown below.

In the first place, package units usually mean modular HVAC systems: multiple individual units all connected to the same system which can be added or removed as needed. This provides the building manager with maximum flexibility in terms of how much cool air is provided. He can divide the units between individual tenants according to their needs, and add or subtract units as appropriate. If one floor of the building is vacant, he can simply turn off the modular units providing that floor with cool air: saving money on monthly bills without disrupting the service for the rest of the building’s occupants.

That’s a big part of why such units are placed on the roof. Depending upon the size of the building, all those modular units can take up a lot of space. Putting them on the roof means that you don’t have to sacrifice any square footage that can go to cubicles, office storage or parking. And the rooftop still provides easy access in the event of repairs.

All of that combines to make package rooftop units very popular for commercial HVAC systems.
