As a commercial building owner or property manager, you’ll surely want to know what you can do to help maintain your property. Properly maintaining the unit is one of the steps you should take. However, you may be unsure of how to do this. Here are a few tips on things you can do in the summer months to help maintain your commercial HVAC unit.
Monitor Your Thermostats
One of the steps you can take to maintain your commercial HVAC unit is to monitor your thermostat or to lock the thermostat. Leaving the unit unlocked can lead to employees constantly adjusting the temperature. This can make your unit work harder to heat or cool the building. Keeping the thermostat set at a steady temperature ensures the unit is not working too hard to dramatically heat or cool, which reduces strain and wear on the unit.
Routinely Check Registers and/or Vents
Another way to properly maintain your HVAC unit is to regularly check registers and vents around your building. Doing so allows you to see if they are closed off when they should be open or blocked, preventing the flow of air. If you have an open space not being used, close those vents so you aren’t diverting air to a useless space. Additionally, consider having your registers, vents and air ducts routinely cleaned to ensure air is flowing properly.
Replace Air Filters When Needed
The third way you can maintain your commercial HVAC unit is to replace air filters when needed. The frequency in which you replace your air filters varies based on the type of unit you have, how often it’s run and the type of filters you’re using. However, it’s important to ensure that each filter is clean. This allows the maximum amount of airflow, reducing strain on your unit.
