A malfunctioning commercial HVAC system at your Virginia Beach, VA, property makes it hard to work and causes energy bills to rise. Identifying problems and making repairs prevents untimely commercial HVAC replacement. Below are three of the most common problems that affect the system’s performance that qualified service technicians can help you address.
The HVAC System Isn’t the Right Size
Do some parts of your building feel more comfortable than others? Ventilation issues like faulty ductwork can cause uneven heating and cooling, but so can having a system that’s not the right size. Too-small units don’t distribute air evenly and use too much energy to meet the building’s comfort demands. Conversely, a too-big system doesn’t necessarily perform better, but it does cost more to operate. If you think you don’t have the right-sized unit for your building, schedule an appointment with a qualified HVAC technician for a professional analysis.
The Building Feels Humid
HVAC systems do more than regulate room temperature. These systems also control humidity levels. If your building’s warm, the air’s stale, or people complain that they can’t get cool, the HVAC system might need the following services:
- Clean the evaporator coil
- Adjust the fan speed
- Check the refrigerant charge
- Install a thermal expansion valve
Contact a local technician for expert advice. Ask about humidification and dehumidification add-ons for your current system.
The Building’s Dustier than Normal
Have you noticed dust buildup in your building? Is the indoor air quality suffering? If so, when did you last have your system professionally maintained? Commercial HVAC systems need regular tune-ups and filter changes to keep the building’s indoor air clean. Yet, a dirty HVAC system does more than affect air quality. It also works harder to do its job. The added stress can shave years off a commercial system’s lifespan, resulting in emergency commercial HVAC replacement.
