The indoor climate of your Green Valley, Arizona, business affects employee performance and customer comfort. A clean, well-maintained establishment tells customers and staff that you care about your business and take the time to keep it up. Your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system keeps the air clean, circulates air, maintains a comfortable temperature and regulates humidity. If your system is struggling to provide cool air or utility bills are high, it may be time to call your HVAC contractor for commercial HVAC repair and maintenance. If you wait, the unit may stop working, which affects productivity and comfort. Here are three signs that you need commercial heating and air conditioning repair.
System Does Not Cool Properly
The temperatures of southern Arizona often soar higher than 100 degrees F during the summer months. If your air conditioner is blowing hot air or not cooling properly, it is time to call a licensed professional for commercial HVAC repair. Technicians will examine your system to identify what is causing the problem.
Lack of maintenance is the main cause of air conditioner breakdowns. Dirty filters can affect the efficiency and performance of the entire system. Filters capture pollutants and keep them from entering ducts. When filters become overloaded, contaminants enter the system and coat coils and other components. Coils must be free of dust for optimum heat exchange. The result is that the unit must work harder to produce conditioned air.
Increased Energy Bills
If your utility bills seem higher than usual, your commercial heating and air conditioning unit may be the reason why. As systems lose efficiency, more energy is used to produce conditioned air. The result is increased energy bills and decreased comfort. Studies show that lack of maintenance can reduce efficiency by up to 60%. In contrast, a well-maintained system can reduce energy costs by as much as 40%. According to the Department of Energy, simply keeping air filters clean can lower energy usage between 5% and 15%.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
The “V” in HVAC stands for ventilation, an important component of indoor comfort and good air quality. Ventilation includes bringing in fresh air from outdoors, expelling bad air and filtering recirculating air. Poor filtration on an HVAC system can lead to poor indoor air quality. Poor air circulation creates an environment for growth of mold and other pathogens and an increase in dust and other airborne pollutants. Employees may complain of headaches, dizziness, nausea, congestion or lethargy. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, these symptoms may be caused by poor indoor air quality.
