Winter generally means colder weather, snow, and ice. Your industrial or commercial HVAC system requirements change at this time of year, which means your facility manager must pay particular attention to winter concerns for your commercial HVAC systems. Omnia360 explains what to watch for in today’s blog.
Wild Temperature Swings or Inconsistencies
Your staff needs it to be warm inside so they can work effectively. However, your facility may have doors that open and close frequently, or you may have a cargo space that has a docking bay for semi-trailers. Your facility may have wild temperature discrepancies from managers’ offices and break rooms to the production line floor and docking bays.
If the temperature in one area seems off for no reason or for an extended period of time, it’s a sign you should get your commercial HVAC system looked at. It could be that someone forgot to shut an empty bay door or messed with the thermostat. But it could be a sign of larger issues. Omnia360 can thoroughly inspect your system for potential problems.
Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality can affect your employees’ health. Better indoor air can improve breathing, and breathing is especially important during cold and flu season. Omnia360 can send a trained HVAC tech to your place to see if your filters or air cleaners need maintenance or replacement to improve your facility’s air quality.
Your commercial HVAC system may suddenly shut down due to changing needs. A warm day in the 60s might necessitate a switch to air conditioning, but the following day a cold front drops temps into the 30s, and you have to change the system back to heat. Changing between heat and air conditioning could cause havoc with your HVAC system. Preventive maintenance is the best way to lessen the chance of a sudden system failure that needs to be fixed ASAP.
Higher Utility Bills
You need to save money as much as possible. Omnia360 totally understands. If your winter utility bills rise month to month without a viable explanation, we can come up with a solution. It could be the age of your HVAC system, the new wing you built last year, or it’s time for a better thermostat to control the heating system. An investment in some regular HVAC maintenance from Omnia360 can save on your utility bills over time.
