Commercial heating and cooling systems are engineered to meet demanding standards, but they aren’t designed to run indefinitely. They need regular maintenance to achieve optimal performance. For business owners, a season of reliable cooling starts in the spring. With a preseason tuneup, you can be certain that your commercial HVAC system will be ready when the summer heat arrives in Lake Zurich.
Spring Maintenance for Commercial Cooling Systems
Our commercial maintenance plans are just as thorough as our residential tuneups, but they include a number of specialized tasks. High-capacity cooling systems are more complex. A rooftop unit may rely on over 100 parts working together. Any one of these components can affect the entire system’s performance.
According to research from Portland Energy Conservation and the New Buildings Institute, preventive HVAC maintenance can reduce energy use by 5 to 20 percent. The best part is that these changes cost very little to implement. By completing the following tasks, we can reduce your company’s cooling costs by 10 percent or more.
- Lubricate and tighten moving parts
- Test sensors, valves, relays and shutoff switches
- Measure the refrigerant levels and check for contaminants
- Test the economizers that reduce energy use during mild weather
- Monitor the operating pressure and check for leaks
- Inspect the thermostat for proper operation
- Balance the airflow and seal air leaks
Objectives of Springtime AC Maintenance
Whether we’re maintaining a light-commercial heat pump or a rooftop unit, our goals are the same. We want local business owners to experience lower operating costs, fewer commercial HVAC repairs, greater reliability and increased comfort.
Preseason maintenance requires an investment and lets you reap considerable savings. If you’re considering an upgrade, spring is also a good time to have your business’s boiler or heating system serviced.
