Fall is on its way, and winter will be here before you know it. During the cold-weather season, you put your commercial HVAC system through a lot of abuse. Make sure your heating system is up to the task. A little bit of preventative maintenance now safeguards your business against productivity losses and the expense of emergency repairs during winter weather extremes.
These Fall HVAC Maintenance Tasks Ensure Reliable, Efficient Operation
- Air filter replacement
Dirty air filters force your system to work harder, expending more energy to heat your workplace. Changing filters at least once a month reduces energy use, support healthier indoor air quality, and extends the lifespan of your system.
- Supply register adjustments
As heat rises, this will help your system warm your workplace more efficiently. When the weather cools, open a few supply registers on the first floor and close a few on the upper floors of your multi-story commercial building.
- Thermostat calibration
Thermostat calibration by your local HVAC professional ensures efficient operation and even comfortable temperatures throughout your building.
- Humidification system pre-check
Ask your commercial HVAC technician to verify the function of your humidistat and humidifier before turning it on for the season. Your humidifier is essential to indoor air quality, helping you control the spread of viruses and bacteria and ensuring a comfortable environment in the winter season.
- Professional system inspection
Complete your fall HVAC maintenance checklist by scheduling a professional inspection. Our HVAC professionals have the experience and equipment to manage maintenance you cannot, such as verifying proper refrigerant levels, checking thermostat function, and performing essential cleaning and maintenance tasks. They can also identify potential problems before they result in system failure and lead to skyrocketing repair costs.
Looking for More Bang for Your Commercial Heating Buck?
These optional upgrades may be a worthy investment.
- Programmable thermostat
A programmable thermostat can cut heating costs dramatically. Today’s smart learning models cost little more than traditional thermostats. They also do a lot of the programming work for you, and allow you to adjust the temperature more easily on or offsite, so you can put an end to thermostat wars in the workplace.
- System replacement
If your commercial heating system is more than 10 years old, you could save significant money on your monthly energy costs by upgrading your system to a newer, more energy efficient model. Older gas furnaces and heating systems installed more than 10 years ago operate at a fraction of the efficiency of today’s Energy Star rated systems, which boost efficiency ratings up to 97%. Between monthly savings and tax incentives, an upgrade may be a wise investment.
