As a business owner or manager, you’re probably well aware of how important it is to keep the HVAC system of your commercial property in good working condition throughout the fall and winter months. However, you may not be familiar with how your system should be cared for and maintained because you usually leave that part to your hired HVAC and indoor air quality contractor. But it’s still important to know what they do to take care of your system in order to better understand why it’s necessary.
Here our team at MLD HVAC Services has put together a fall maintenance checklist that professional technicians and contractors typically follow. You can also use this as a guide that can be customized according to your needs.
Check specific heating parts in your system. This means inspecting your system’s gas/oil connections, gas pressure, burner combustion, and heat exchanger. If you notice that the connections aren’t in working order, they should be addressed as soon as possible. Otherwise, it can lead to a fire hazard and put the health and safety of your entire commercial property at risk. You also need to make sure the burner is clean and that the heat exchanger isn’t cracked before you turn it on.
Determine the causes behind unusual sounds and smells. If you’ve noticed an odd smell or have heard strange noises coming from your system, then there could be an underlying issue that needs to be addressed. Have your trusted HVAC services technician determine the cause of the problem and get it repaired before the winter season sets in.
Replace the air filter. When the air filter isn’t working correctly, the entire system can become compromised. You might be already aware, but the air filter needs to be replaced every one to three months. This is especially important for commercial properties, and the start of a new season is the perfect time to do this.
