4 Fall Maintenance Tips for Commercial HVAC Systems

Fall is the ideal time to get your building chores done, including fixing minor issues with your heating and cooling systems. It’s crucial to maintain the good condition of your HVAC system in order to keep your building warm throughout the frosty winter season. Here are some helpful tips to ensure your business is ready to take on the upcoming months.

1. Change the air filters. Air filters are responsible for trapping  the particulates, contaminants and allergens circulating inside a building. They effectively help keep the indoor air clean and safe for the building’s occupants. You need to replace your air filters every one to three months, but if they tend to get extremely dirty and dusty, you may have to change them more frequently.

2. Check heating components. A reputable Carrier HVAC provider recommends inspecting heating-specific parts of your system, including the components associated with successful heating. Check the heat exchanger, burner combustion, gas pressure and all gas or oil connections. Make sure that these are all inspected thoroughly and any potential problems are resolved ahead of time to prevent a fire hazard.

3. Inspect sounds and smells. If you’re smelling strange odors or hearing suspicious sounds coming from your HVAC system, there could be underlying issues that need to be fixed. The best thing to do in this case is call a reliable technician to properly assess the condition of your HVAC system. 

4. Continue routine maintenance. The importance of regular maintenance cannot be stressed enough. Keep in mind that heating and air conditioning systems are complex and have a lot of moving parts that require  regular repair and maintenance. A typical tune-up should cover thermostat settings, condensate drains, electrical connections and controls.
