HVAC maintenance is critical to keeping cool as summer heat approaches.

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start preparing your facility for warmer temperatures. HVAC maintenance is critical to keeping cool as summer heat approaches. MaintenX International helps businesses create personalized preventative maintenance schedules for their HVAC systems, leading to reduced electrical consumption, reduced repair costs and prolonged life of your equipment.

MaintenX technicians know the importance of proper HVAC care and the peace of mind owners, clients and employees have knowing regular maintenance will help them keep them cool all summer long.

Here are a few cool tips to keep in mind:

Don’t Let the Air Out:
The change in seasons also means extra work for your HVAC system. As the temperature rises, facility managers across the country are turning their air conditioning up to full blast. Make sure doors and windows are sealed properly. The less cool air that escapes your home, the less energy – and money - you’ll waste on the air conditioner.

Reduce Fire Hazards:
It's important to check your HVAC system wiring on a regular basis. Make sure it's operating both safely and properly. Turn off your system and open the access panel. If you notice any wires that look burned or blackened call a maintenance professional, like the technicians at MaintenX, to have wires replaced.

Give Your Machine a Makeover:
The best time for HVAC maintenance is before extreme temperatures hit. Make sure to schedule a professional maintenance appointment so a technician can inspect your HVAC unit and repair or replace any necessary parts. Air filters that become clogged with dirt or are overdue for replacement cause the HVAC unit to slow down and work harder to cool your building. A dirty filter will impede air flow and use more energy to function properly. Keeping a clean air filter is important to maintaining good air quality. Regular maintenance also reduces expensive repair costs that can occur when an HVAC system unexpectedly breaks down.

Fan-tastic Function:
Your office fans work hard all year but summer is the best time to ensure they are working as efficiently as possible. Remove fan covers and wash them with soap and water. Check HVAC system fans for any damage or obstruction. Use a toothbrush or small bristled brush to clean fan blades before reapplying the cover. An outside unit may become damaged by debris. A damaged fan can't function properly and may actually cause additional damage to the system.

Maintaining a complex appliance, like an HVAC system, on your own may be out of your comfort zone. You can trust professionals, like MaintenX technicians, to provide preventative maintenance or repairs to keep your unit working all season long. You can also work with MaintenX technicians to create a personalized maintenance plan to cover all your facility’s needs.
