“Investing in HVAC maintenance and repairs is critical to making sure your system can run efficiently and keep you warm all season long.”
TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) January 25, 2018
With winter officially underway, it’s time to start preparing your facility for the coming cold temperatures. Tampa-based MaintenX International wants to offer local businesses some tips for commercial heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) maintenance.
“Your HVAC system is critical to keeping your facility warm as outside temperatures drop,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “Investing in maintenance and repairs is critical to making sure your system can run efficiently and keep you warm all season long.”
Below are a few maintenance tips to make sure your HVAC system can weather the winter.
Help your System Work its Best
Some buildings have limited storage space, however, it’s critical to keep the area around your HVAC system clear and clean. It’s also important to not store anything near your heater or furnace. Keeping the area surrounding your machinery clear ensures they receive proper air intake flow and can function efficiently. You can also help your HVAC system run more efficiently by properly insulating your building.
Prepare for Spring
You might not be thinking about air conditioning during the chilly winter months, but that’s what makes it a perfect time to repair or upgrade your cooling system. Check your compressor, refrigerant charge, ensure all pipes and drains are leak-free and repair any missing screws or loose panels. By completing preventative maintenance in the winter months, you can be sure your air conditioning system will be ready when you need it.
Care for your Heat Pump
If you live where freezing temperatures are common and have a heat pump, there are precautions to ensure your pump remains in peak condition. If the heat pump is outdoors and accumulates ice on the fan blades, the blades can jam. The motor will work overtime trying to turn the blades, which can result in the entire system burning out. Consider using an emergency heat source if you find yourself in this situation.
Call a Professional
Maintaining a complex appliance, like an HVAC system, on your own may be out of your comfort zone. You can trust professionals, like the technicians at MaintenX, to provide necessary preventative maintenance or repairs to keep your heat on all winter long. You can also work with MaintenX technicians to create a personalized maintenance plan to cover all of your facility’s needs.
