No matter the time of year, you expect your commercial HVAC system to work for you when you need it. However, some problems cause inefficient heating. Therefore, it’s best to be mindful of these potential commercial HVAC issues in your Deerfield, IL, business.
The filter in your HVAC system filters dust, dirt, pollen and other contaminants, preventing them from entering the unit. Clogged filters increase energy bills and negatively impact indoor air quality.
Strange noises coming from your commercial HVAC system typically indicate it’s time to call a professional. The problem the noise indicates could be anything from loose ductwork to a broken component.
Even while heating your business, your HVAC system needs refrigerant to operate. If there’s a refrigerant leak, there’s usually insufficient heating or reduced airflow. A refrigerant leak can also cause health issues like skin irritation, vomiting and difficulty breathing.
Sometimes the problem isn’t with your commercial HVAC unit itself but with the thermostat. If the thermostat is faulty, it may not properly communicate with the HVAC system. This leads to inefficient heating issues in commercial spaces.
The capacity of the HVAC unit itself is another problem that can arise. If the unit is too small, it’ll have to work too hard to heat or cool your space, wasting electricity and raising your utility bill. If it’s too big for your needs, it won’t heat as evenly as you’d like, and this could lead to hot and cold spots in your building.
