From cold Pennsylvania winters to sweltering summers and everything in between, you depend on your HVAC system to keep up with the changing seasons. To ensure that it can, it’s essential to provide regular service that addresses the top challenges of every time of year. Not sure where to start? Custom Aire offers a few suggestions for seasonal commercial HVAC repairs and maintenance.

Spring/Fall

Spring and fall may be moderate seasons, but that doesn’t mean your HVAC system should be neglected — it’s quite the opposite. To keep your commercial HVAC equipment performing efficiently, schedule routine maintenance and inspections during these less-demanding months to prepare for the coming winter and summer. An inspection may also detect a number of issues, including leaks, rust, rot, soot, frayed wires, corroded electrical contacts and more. This can save you time and money by solving minor problems before they turn into big ones.

Summer

In summer, air conditioning is often required to keep your place of business cool and inviting. Be sure to check refrigerant levels before the weather really heats up, as this substance is essential for cooling the air circulating throughout your facility. You’ll also want to clean filters to avoid clogging and check hoses for any damage. And while it’s important to tackle these tasks at the beginning of summer, you’ll need to regularly inspect the HVAC system’s cooling components throughout the warmer months as well.  

Winter

Winter weather comes with its own troubles for commercial HVAC systems. Frigid conditions can lead to frozen pipes, fan motors and other components, causing damage to your system and leaving your facility without heat. Appropriate insulation helps address these issues, as will removing excess snowfall from outdoor systems. Reduced fresh air can diminish indoor air quality (IAQ), so take extra care to keep filters clean and schedule ductwork cleaning. You should also have a technician check your thermostat to make sure it’s functioning properly. Skipping this step could lead to inconsistent temperatures or stress on your HVAC system as it struggles to maintain a consistent temperature.
