We’re in the thick of the winter right now, and that might mean your building’s commercial HVAC units are working overtime to keep your guests and employees warm. The good news is that commercial HVAC units are built with longevity in mind, and they have a reputation for being quite durable. However, this doesn’t mean you should ever ignore it. Maintenance is key with any type of building appliance that is always in use. Read on for a couple of ways you can keep your HVAC unit working correctly and how louvers might be able to benefit them too.
Your Monthly Maintenance Tasks
Double-check and make sure that everyone is on the same page as far as your thermostat goes. Guests and employees alike should feel comfortable so if anybody says they’re feeling chilly, take some time to see if you have to make any adjustments. You also will want to periodically swap your thermostat depending on the month and what the weather looks like. Take a peek at your HVAC’s filters and swap them if they look dirty. This is important since these can contribute to allergies that people could be experiencing. Also, if your unit is outdoors, which is the case for most HVAC systems, then make sure there isn’t anything blocking it. Airflow is key for keeping your HVAC units working, which is why custom louvers are an excellent option for protecting your HVAC systems.
It is already very cold outside now, but it isn’t too late to open any furnaces you might have and use a vacuum to get rid of the muck that has probably been built in there. Cobwebs, dust, and other debris all have to go! If there are any loosened connections, get those fixed too. As far as any outdoor condenser coils go, pick a time where it will be warm outside (we know this is tough right now) and use a garden hose to clean off the condenser coils.
While using a hose to clean off the condenser coils, performing this regularly is a good idea. Make sure you are doing an intense deep clean at least once a year. Take some warm water and dish soap, mix them, and place it in a squirt bottle. Then, spray the bottle onto the condenser coils and spray that all off with the hose. Last, it might be a brilliant idea to have an HVAC technician come out to see if there are any last-minute problems.
