Commercial HVAC Problems
In Eclectic, AL, you probably use your HVAC system all summer long to cool your business. An ineffective commercial HVAC unit leads to poor indoor air quality and increased operational costs. We are your local choice for solutions to common commercial HVAC problems. Here are four common commercial HVAC problems your system may experience.
1. Dirty, Clogged Vents and Filters
Blocked vents and filters are common problems with commercial HVAC systems. The filters may trap contaminants, leading to obstructed airflow.
The buildup of dust and dirt may result in clogged vents. Routine checks and maintenance of the HVAC by qualified technicians will help the unit stay clean and also efficient.
2. Leaking Refrigerant
A refrigerant is a liquid responsible for the cooling and dehumidifying of the air. Leaking refrigerant leads to the overworking of the system’s condenser.
The HVAC system may also experience reduced airflow with heating and cooling functions being inefficient. The leaks may also be dangerous for the building as leaking refrigerant poses safety risks.
3. Strange System Noises
Unusual sounds from the commercial HVAC system indicate a problem. Loose ductwork, obstruction of the fan and loose screws may also cause strange noises.
Loud whistles are indicative of excess internal pressure or leaking refrigerant. A capacitor that is failing in the system results in a click sound. You should turn off the system and contact an HVAC technician
4. Malfunctioning Thermostat
A malfunctioning thermostat is often ignored as a cause of HVAC problems. The thermostat is responsible for regulating the amount of cold or hot air and for turning the system on and off.
The HVAC unit will stop working if the thermostat is not working or also malfunctions in any way. Contact a technician to maintain the thermostat or to replace an old one. Early repairs help prevent intermittent temperature fluctuations.
These are some of the most common problems you can experience with a commercial HVAC system. Call us at Advanced Heating & Air Conditioning, LLC for excellent heater and also AC repairs from our qualified technicians with unmatched expertise.
