Many little things around a commercial property must be done every day. There’s cleaning, operating machinery, and other tasks you can assign to members of your team or an on-site maintenance staff. It just seems more productive and cost-effective in most cases.
However, servicing commercial HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) equipment is unlike these other routine maintenance tasks. When work needs to be done on a rooftop unit or any other commercial HVAC system, we’ve got one important message for you:
Leave it to the pros!
Commercial HVAC systems need repairs and routine maintenance from people who truly know the ins and outs of these systems. Specializing in commercial air conditioning and heating means intense training that no handyman or maintenance crew has the time to perfect.
Commercial HVAC Specialists Have Specific Training in These Systems
Large commercial HVAC systems are not just bigger versions of the residential units (although residential AC and heating systems need professional service too). In order to accommodate the much larger load these systems take on, additional parts help to ensure proper zoning, refrigerant proportions, and much more.
A commercial rooftop unit contains all of the components in one cabinet, and that includes many parts that are not so important in a residential system. You should only call on the help of an experienced HVAC professional when you need service as one wrong move can cause trouble for the entire system: an investment you cannot afford to risk.
You Should Have Regular Maintenance
You should be scheduling regular maintenance for your air conditioning and heating systems on an annual basis, or preferably twice per year. Annual maintenance visits include inspections into the system, along with cleaning and fine-tuning of some of the parts.
And it’s important that you hire a commercial specialist for the job. When someone on your maintenance crew looks over the system, or even when someone with a small background in HVAC does, it may be more difficult to recognize whether there are problems. Repairs are often more difficult to detect in an air conditioner, as they may appear smaller than they are.
Routine maintenance protects your investment, plain and simple, but only as long as someone with the requisite experience and training does the job.
New Installations Should Come from Brand and Industry Specialists
Finally, be sure to hire commercial HVAC specialists whenever you decide it’s time to start shopping for a new system. Commercial HVAC systems are tough to size and secure, and no residential company would want to take on the job without experience.
You should work with a company with insight into commercial HVAC systems, but also one that deals in specific brands. For example, we work with Coleman air conditioning systems, meaning we train extensively on their equipment and can quickly troubleshoot any issue. Installation is easier and goes smoothly when your technician represents the brand they install!
