Why You Shouldn't Put off Your Annual AC Inspection


The Importance of Commercial Air Conditioning Maintenance

Maintaining the air conditioning system for your business will be important for preserving the overall performance of the system. However, there are many business owners that will not keep up with this type of care,

Ensure The Exterior Unit Has Ample Air Flow

Good airflow around the AC unit is essential for allowing the system to work in an efficient way. Unfortunately, individuals may not realize that their exterior unit's airflow has been compromised or decreased by a substantial amount. This can occur due to bushes and other plants growing too close to the exterior unit's vents as this could prevent the air from moving through the unit.

Another potential source of this issue is leaves and other debris gathering on these vents. If these issues are not corrected, the unit's performance can experience a substantial decrease as a result of the inability of the system to vent the heat that it is removing from the air. Regularly inspecting the exterior unit to ensure good ventilation can be essential for preserving the system's overall performance.

Write Down When The Air Filter Was Last Changed

Changing the air filter for the AC is the most routine maintenance that will have to be performed on the system. However, individuals can easily forget to do this as frequently as they need to as a result of forgetting the last date that they did this routine work. One option to help you avoid forgetting this could be to write down the date that you last changed the air filter. Writing this on the air filter is an easy way of avoiding losing this information. However, you will have to open the grate to the air filter to see this information. Individuals that want a more convenient solution may choose to write this date on a small piece of tape and place it on the thermostat so that they can easily review it.

Protect Your Air Conditioning System From Routine Wear

Over the course of being used, your AC unit will experience substantial wear and tear. This could put some of the mechanical components at risk of failure. If this occurs, the unit could suffer a complete failure until it is repaired. Having a commercial HVAC maintenance technician service the unit on a yearly basis is one option for minimizing these issues as one of these technicians will be able to fully service the unit so that any wear, alignment issues, or lubrication problems can be corrected.

About Me

Why You Shouldn't Put off Your Annual AC Inspection

I almost always have my air conditioner inspected every spring before I start using it in the summer. However, last year I decided to skip the inspection. Everything had been OK for the last couple of years, so I assumed that it would be fine this year as well. Why not save a few dollars and skip the annual check up, just this once? Of course, this was the year that my air conditioner decided to break down. It ran for a few days, but it never really seemed to get cool enough to bring the indoor temperature down. Then it started making a loud noise, right before shutting off completely. By that time, the AC repair company was swamped like it always is when the weather is warm, and I had to wait days for an appointment. Next year, I will definitely be getting that yearly inspection first.
