We often talk about HVAC maintenance but there is a reason for that – your HVAC system is crucial to your building because if you don’t have heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer, your building and the comfort of your employees and/or guests is compromised.
Here are a few things to look for when performing preventative maintenance on your HVAC system:
- Filter replacement
- Checking the condition of belts and pulleys and replacing as needed
- Clearing drain lines and pans
- Checking electrical connections
- Adjusting fans and blower motors as needed
- Inspecting ignition and burners
- Lubricating motors and moving parts
- Inspection of thermostats and controls
- Inspection of heat exchangers
- Cleaning of condensers and evaporator coils
- Checking air flow
- Full mechanical and systems audit
Now these are items that a professional can check out but if you have them set up to be part of your regular preventative maintenance checks, then you can ensure that the employee assigned to the task can make sure the equipment is running at its best. Following, are ways to benefit when keeing on top of your cooling systems:
