Spring in Kelowna is just around the corner, so it’s time start thinking about your Commercial HVAC Maintenance and Preventative Maintenance Plans. We will help you get your Commercial HVAC units ready to go.
Regular system checks for your commercial/business HVAC units can prevent costly breakdowns and emergency repair, which can lead to uncomfortably warm days.
While we offer our commercial clients a range of services for their seasonal equipment changes, we’ve identified some ‘non-negotiables’ to keep your system running efficiently.
Below are some items that should be checked regularly to prevent unnecessary stress on your HVAC unit:
Check Air Filters and Replace if needed
Air Filters should be checked monthly to see if they are dirty or clogged. As part of our service we’ll check these as per a negotiated schedule. However, if your building has a maintenance manager or on-site handyman, you may want to have them check regularly.
Additionally, your home may have commercial grade units which will require a maintenance program that supports changing filters often enough to maintain efficient operation.
Unsure if they’re dirty? Take your filter out and hold it up to a bright light source, if you can’t see through it then it needs to be changed.
If they look like the image on the right, replace them right away.
Clean HVAC Unit
Don’t forget to clean your HVAC Unit! Both indoor and outdoor units need to ensure they are free of dirt, dust, mud, and vegetation.
This way the airflow is not restricted, and you can get better performance from your HVAC system.
Schedule Preventive Maintenance
It’s never to late to Schedule Preventative Maintenance for your commercial HVAC systems. We will send our trained team to inspect the cooling equipment, adjust control, lubricant parts, tighten components and ensure your systems are running smoothly.
Likewise, if your building employs an on-site technician, the maintenance department can be proactive with setting up a schedule that works for specific buildings and their needs. It’s easy to forget how long it’s been between visual checks and scheduled maintenance, so we recommend always marking something as a recurring event. This way you’re always covered!
