Commercial AC in Barboursville, WV, is different from residential AC, as you know if you’re responsible for running a school, a hospital, an office, or other building where lots of people both work and visit. The size of a commercial heating and cooling system is larger than that of a residential system. The placement of the units, their complexity, and what it takes to keep them in good working order are all different. Here are some things to consider when you’re in charge of a commercial building’s HVAC.
"Everyone was so nice and they were able to come the same day we called. Heath was professional and made it easy to understand what was wrong. Would definitely use them again!"
Despite the differences between residential and commercial air conditioning, there are still some things that are common to both systems.
These similarities include:
Changing air filters regularly
Cleaning condensate lines
Cleaning condenser coils and the evaporator
Checking system just before heating and cooling seasons
Like a residential heating and cooling system, it’s also important to check the system visually. This helps prevent expensive repairs in the future. You can make sure that all pipes are connected, that vents remain clear of debris and mold, and that there’s a good clearance around condensers and other units. The HVAC professionals at Variable Comfort Solutions can detect more subtle problems that a layperson might not notice.
Another thing to take into account is that the professional will most likely have to work outdoors since the unit is most often placed on the roof. This is an advantage that commercial AC has over residential, as the work in the building doesn’t have to be interrupted because of a service call. The person who has an HVAC professional come to service their home system will probably need to make arrangements to keep themselves, their pets, and their kids out of the way for a while.
Though you should have questions for our HVAC professional when they come to service your system, they’ll also have questions for you. They’ll ask how the system has been performing, if the temperatures you program the thermostats to deliver are stable, and if the humidity in different areas of your building is comfortable. They’ll ask how many hours the system is supposed to be operating, the square footage of the building, how the space is used, and how many people occupy it. They’ll also ask if you’ve had energy bills that have shot up for no reason you can discern. Energy costs that increase all of a sudden often mean there’s a problem somewhere in the system.
