Fall Industrial HVAC Maintenance Tips

Is your commercial heating system ready for winter?

Here at , we've been providing trusted industrial HVAC maintenance and HVAC repair services to businesses throughout Pennsylvania and Delaware since 1986. We know what it takes to keep your industrial HVAC system running reliably throughout the year, and today we're sharing our top HVAC tips with you to help you prepare for the cooler months ahead:

Check Your Filters

If we had to choose the single most important thing your maintenance team can do to help keep your industrial HVAC system running well, it would be to clean or replace your filter if you have a system that uses filters. The filter on your HVAC system needs to be clean in order to function properly, otherwise, airflow to your system is restricted, leading to reduced energy efficiency and even poor air quality throughout your facility. In fact, it's a good idea to have your filter checked monthly as part of your regular HVAC maintenance routine.

Perform A 'Sound Check'

Turn off all other sources of sound in your facility (or as many systems as is feasible) and power up your HVAC system. Listen for any unusual noises such as squealing belts, rattling, or banging, and make note of any odd odors - these could all be warning signs that you need to call an HVAC repair specialist.

Look For Rust and Air Leaks

If you spot any rusting on your HVAC unit or vent pipes, this could be a sign that your HVAC system isn't working properly. Rust leads to holes in your ductwork which will cause your system to work harder, leading to higher energy consumption and poor overall performance.

Clear Away Any Leaves & Debris

Keep leaves, grass clippings, and other debris cleared well away from your outdoor heat pump, as these materials can block the airflow that's needed to keep your HVAC system running at optimal efficiency and even be a fire hazard if the materials are combustible. Also, check the areas around your heat exchangers and vents - these spaces need to be clean and free of obstruction as well.

Schedule A HVAC Maintenance Appointment

For peace of mind this winter, book an appointment with one of our licensed and insured HVAC repair specialists today. We'll inspect your system, change your filters, and identify issues that could leave you spending more money than you should be to keep your facility comfortable this winter. Remember, regular HVAC maintenance by a licensed HVAC repair specialist is usually required in order to ensure that the warranty on your industrial HVAC system remains valid.
