4 Common Commercial HVAC Issues You May Experience

Keeping your commercial HVAC system in good condition is essential for a successful business. However, you will eventually run into some problems with your system. Here are four common commercial HVAC issues you may encounter:

Clogged Filter

Filters trap dust, allergens, and other pollutants, keeping them from circulating. They can get clogged and dirty, and become unable to do their job efficiently. Replacing the filter helps improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and prolong the life of your commercial HVAC system.

Refrigerant Replacement

Air conditioners contain refrigerant fluid that cools the air and reduces humidity. This fluid usually lasts for years, but the refrigerant can get depleted over time or leak out of cracks in the coils. This causes the condenser to work harder than normal and prevents the system from cooling the air. HVAC specialists can fix this problem by repairing leaks and replenishing the refrigerant.

Thermostat Repair

In some cases, what seems like a problem with the AC unit is actually caused by a faulty thermostat. When the thermostat is unable to measure the temperature correctly or fails to react to changing temperatures, the AC may not turn on or off at the proper time. This stresses the components of the system and prevents the AC from doing its job. When this happens, the thermostat should be repaired or replaced by a qualified technician.

Insufficient Airflow

Most HVAC systems use a system of ducts to direct cool air to the rooms of a house. The amount of cool air in each room is controlled by dampers that allow and restrict airflow as needed. These dampers can become unbalanced, preventing some rooms from receiving cool air. Rebalancing the dampers will ensure that all the rooms are cooled equally.

Regular commercial HVAC maintenance is essential for restoring commercial HVAC systems to optimal condition and preventing costly issues. To find out more about how you could keep your air conditioner in top shape, call DeSantis Appliance & AC Service Inc at (352) 414-2328.
