Advantages of Regular Commercial Maintenance
While commercial and residential heating and cooling systems both provide temperature control, commercial systems operate on a much larger scale. Bigger buildings require increased capacity, which means more powerful heating and cooling systems that are more prone to breaking down. Regular maintenance can help catch issues with your system before they develop into problems that will be expensive to repair.
Commercial Versus Residential
A commercial structure is likely to be used in a variety of ways. This means that different areas may need to be kept at different temperatures. Larger systems necessitate a larger airflow volume, which means that more condensation will occur. Greater amounts of condensation require far more elaborate drainage, exhaust and ventilation components. Additionally, while residential systems are often installed at ground level, commercial systems are most frequently installed on roofs. Preventative maintenance is extremely important for commercial systems. Without regular maintenance, energy costs can soar, and expensive equipment can break down before owners have gotten the best return on their investment. A professional who’s familiar with the components and functional characteristics of a commercial system is your best resource for commercial maintenance.
What Is Commercial Maintenance?
Commercial maintenance plans involve a number of vital procedures. These include:
- Replacing filters
- Cleaning equipment
- Calibrating performance
- Checking for obstructions and leaks
- Inspecting electrical connections
- Lubricating moving parts
- Making necessary repairs
Typically, preventative commercial maintenance is carried out twice a year. Maintenance on a heating system is done in the fall months since it’s presumed the heating system will be used extensively throughout the winter. Maintenance on a cooling system will be scheduled for the spring because that system is more likely to be used in the warmer months. Air filters may need to be changed more often than twice a year since they clog with dust and debris so easily. A clogged air filter will cause your system to work harder, which uses up more energy.
