3 Signs You Need To Contact A Commercial HVAC Company

An HVAC unit can last on average of 12 years before needing to be replaced, but that time can be increased with the right maintenance and repair. In many cases, you'll want to reach out to HVAC companies to do the repairs for you. However, your business or commercial property's HVAC system also needs some TLC. And because these systems must service a much larger property, they often have much more intensive maintenance needs. When you do encounter a problem, commercial HVAC providers are your best options to get the most out of your repairs and maintenance.

But how do you know that you need to have your unit inspected or repaired? When should you call an HVAC service provider?

Here are three instances where it can be a good idea to pick up the phone and contact us:

1. No Cold Air Produced
This is often what triggers landlords to make the call for local HVAC companies: when the air conditioning just isn't working right. This could be for a number of reasons, and if you're not an HVAC technician or professional, can be frustrating to diagnose and fix.

There's also the fact that a unit could be broken and still be emitting cold air, or not emitting cold air and be totally fine. In that latter example, a new air conditioning filter is often all that's needed. If you don't know what the problem is, it's recommended you call a professional, just to be sure.

2. High Cooling Bills
If your power bills are increasing rapidly or jumping up randomly, it could be a sign of disrepair or other issues. Especially if you skipped on having it inspected before the summer hit, it's important to call for professional help. Older appliances tend to cool less over time while simultaneously consuming more energy.

HVAC Unit Making Weird Noises
A big sign that you need to call HVAC contractors is that the unit for your home or business is making sounds you know it shouldn't. You'll know when you hear it that something is wrong. Likewise, you shouldn't be hearing strange noises coming from your ventilation ducts.

These sounds can be scraping, screeching, grinding, or a high-pitch whine, and each could mean an entirely different thing. Metal scraping on metal, the fan going out, a belt issue, or just a need for lubrication are all common problems. No matter the reason, it's best to call local HVAC companies to figure it out.

So if your commercial HVAC unit is showing any one of these three signs, contact your local HVAC companies to see what they can do. You'll be better off getting a repair and maintenance plan than having to replace the entire unit.

Repeated bearing failure on the motor of the chiller that not only did the manufacturer not correct, but two other vendors failed to find and properly analyze the correct solution."
