The maintenance of your AC does not stop at the end of summer. There are things that need to be done when the weather is colder and in spring to prepare commercial AC for summer. While the weather is cooler outside, it is good to consider the maintenance and repairs that need to be done before spring. The following AC maintenance and repairs will help ensure your business is ready for summer heatwaves next year:
Winter AC upgrades and replacements
When doing maintenance to commercial HVAC and commercial systems, it is difficult to find time for updating systems. During the winter months, these systems are often down, which may be the right time for your business to begin upgrade and replacement projects. Some of the options for updating commercial AC over the winter months include:
- Replace old AC units with conventional replacements under warranty
- Add renewable energy with geothermal mechanical systems
- Commercial AC heat pumps for more efficient air conditioning
- Upgrades for thermostats and HVAC controls to improve efficiency
When the time comes to begin updating your commercial AC system, start planning to have the work done before spring.
Calibrating your thermostat for winter and summer
The controls of commercial HVAC systems are different than the thermostats in homes. The thermostat controls of mechanical and HVAC installations have to be calibrated. This ensures that the thermostats and mechanical systems work together to keep the temperature and climate conditions just right. Calibrating the mechanical controls ensures conditions are right and reduces wear of HVAC components.
Changing filters and repairing air delivery systems
The filters are important for any HVAC system, and more so for the commercial mechanical systems. With commercial systems, there are different types of air delivery systems used to keep spaces cool. Most often, these systems use conventional ductwork that is vulnerable to wear and damage. When you are doing other maintenance to the AC system, the ducts and other air delivery systems need to be inspected.
Other commercial mechanical maintenance before summer
The mechanical systems of your commercial business also need maintenance. Refrigeration systems should be cleaned and inspected too. When there is a problem with these other systems, it can often impact your AC that leads to additional issues and costly repairs.
The maintenance and repairs that are done before summer will ensure your business is prepared for heatwaves. Call an air conditioning maintenance service like Nathan's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. for help with the maintenance of your business needs before summer.
