4 Common Commercial HVAC Problems

As we approach the time of year where we can count on the weather to be finnicky, it's important to make sure your HVAC system is in tip-top shape. Here are four common commercial HVAC problems you should keep an eye out for.

1. Worn Out Wires

Wires wearing out is one of the most common problems with commercial HVAC systems. These issues often result in inadequate heating and cooling, as well as other troubling malfunctions. If left alone, these malfunctions can even become dangerous. Preventative HVAC maintenance by qualified HVAC technicians is key to avoiding wiring issues.

2. Thermostat Troubles

Thermostats provide tangible temperature control for you and your employees, so it's incredibly frustrating when you adjust it to your ideal temperature (likely after a colleague has made it too hot or too cold), and nothing changes in the air. In many instances, it's a simple matter of replacing the batteries. If that doesn't work and you're out of ideas, you need to call a professional to take a look.

3.  Too Darn Hot

While we might revel in warm temperatures outside, it's hard to concentrate on work in such conditions. Between the higher temperatures and the sunlight beaming through the windows, the building will naturally become hotter. You'll get irritable if your HVAC system isn't cooling the air properly, and there might be a larger issue at play.

4. Way Too Loud

An overly chatty HVAC system is distracting and headache-inducing to everyone in your building. If your HVAC is excessively noisy, it likely has some worn-down components that need replacing. The best way to be sure and turn down the volume is to call in the HVAC maintenance experts.
