Can Your HVAC System Handle the Summer Heat?

Jul 6, 2020

Summertime Maintenance

Summer is in full swing, and reliable cooling is an important part of employee, tenant, and customer comfort during the hottest months of the year. When it comes to keeping your HVAC system running properly, maintenance is key. It can help prevent breakdowns, lower operating costs, and increase energy efficiency.

How can we help your business? Our certified technicians can design a preventive maintenance plan to fit your needs.

Here are some of the steps we will take to ensure your HVAC system is reliable all season long:

spect all Equipment

By inspecting your HVAC equipment first, we can identify any worn or faulting components before they cause costly unscheduled downtime. We can also address refrigerant leaks. These types of leaks can be harmful to your health and the environment, force your system to work harder and cause your unit to freeze up if left untreated.

Check and Replace Air Filters

When air filters become clogged from dirt and debris, less air passes into HVAC equipment, and systems run less efficiently to compensate. As a result, energy costs start to increase, and your building may not be able to cool down.

Air and Water Balancing

Air and water balancing usually uncovers a combination of issues that can hurt system performance. It’s a method of regulating HVAC air supply, return, and exhaust, or the flow of water through coils, to achieve a neutrally balanced, comfortably conditioned building.

Your HVAC system was an investment, why not protect it? Whether you need preventive maintenance, an install, or an emergency repair, we have the tools and expertise to bring comfort into your building or facility and cost savings to your energy bills.
