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:
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.
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.
