The Most Common Problems With Commercial HVAC Systems

Maintaining a commercial HVAC system is an essential task for a business owner. Not only does it keep employees and patrons comfortable while they’re on-site, but it also ensures that energy bills don’t get out of control and health risks are eliminated due to well-maintained HVAC equipment.

Unfortunately, many things can go wrong with the equipment, primarily if it’s not maintained correctly. Here are some of the most common problems with commercial HVAC equipment and how to fix them brought to you by Omnia360.

Issues With the Drain Line

The drain line is an essential part of HVAC equipment because it diverts moisture away from the primary unit. However, sometimes it can get clogged with debris, algae, or even develop mold growth over time. This can result in leaks, water damage, and an unhealthy work environment for employees.

Improperly Sized Equipment

Often, HVAC equipment is either too large or too small for the space. If it’s too small, it won’t be able to cool or heat the building thoroughly, resulting in an uncomfortable environment for employees and patrons alike. If the HVAC equipment is too large, it won’t run efficiently, and business owners will pay the price with increased energy costs. Fortunately, inefficient heating and cooling can be resolved by investing in properly sized equipment, which an HVAC contractor can recommend.

Leaky Ductwork

Leaky ductwork is extremely common in both residential and commercial buildings. If your ventilation system has leaks or cracks, it will allow conditioned air to escape, which means the commercial HVAC equipment will have to work longer and harder to heat or cool the space. It’s also likely the main reason why a commercial building is too hot or too cold and why the energy bill is so high. Properly sealing ductwork will ensure that the space is efficiently heated or cooled, so it’s more comfortable. It will also extend the lifespan of the equipment.

Strange Noises

Weird noises like clinking or banging might occur when the HVAC equipment is first turned on. However, this isn’t normal and shouldn’t be happening. More than likely, these sounds indicate a more significant issue, such as ventilation joints that aren’t fitting together correctly or loose bolts throughout the system. An HVAC contractor can investigate these strange noises, provide adequate solutions to avoid any significant issues, and ensure the system is working safely and correctly.
