The Dangers of Irregular Commercial HVAC System Maintenance, and How to Prevent Them

For so many commercial spaces, it be easy to not consider the health of your commercial HVAC system until your unit breaks down, but doing so can set your space up for disaster.

Air quality, comfort, and productivity are all elements that go into the success of your business, and it all starts with proper and regular commercial HVAC system maintenance. If you’re still not convinced, remember that failure to set aside the time and budget for these types of preventative measures can cost you even more money, energy, and resources down the line.

Below are some issues caused by irregular commercial HVAC system maintenance that can result in the need for emergency repair… and how to solve them.

Fire Hazards

Most commercial HVAC related fires are preventable. To reduce your commercial space’s fire risk and keep your employees and customers safe, it’s crucial to perform consistent inspections of your HVAC system’s heating unit. This involves looking carefully for any gas leaks or clogs which can cause the buildup of incredibly harmful gases, such as carbon monoxide. Ensure your unit is cleaned diligently and regularly to identify leaks before they become an emergency.

Poor Air Quality 

It should go without saying that the air quality in your commercial space is vital to the health and safety of your employees and customers. Poor air quality becomes a problem when buildup of dust and debris occurs throughout the air vents of your commercial HVAC system. Regular cleaning, again, can help combat the accumulation of harmful allergens, particles that may be even more harmful to individuals in pandemic times.

Thermostat Malfunctions

While it may not seem like a pressing issue at first glance, thermostat malfunctions can wreak havoc on the comfort and productivity of your workplace. Your thermostat is responsible for maintaining the optimal balance of warm and cool air flowing from your system, and failure to address the problem may result in unnecessarily high energy bills and the discomfort of your space’s occupants. A commercial HVAC system expert can diagnose the problem and get your thermostat up and running again.
