Are you really taking advantage of commercial services when you have heating and cooling issues? If you are experiencing cooling inconsistencies throughout your office, it could be time for a service call to determine the issues.
Here are some of the most common commercial services causes for fickle cooling:
Cracked Commercial Ductwork
If one office is freezing and another is sweltering, it could be that there are cracks or leaks in the ductwork throughout your office space. If you have cracks in the ducts, it can cause air that is coming from the cooling system to be diverted to a crawl space, above ceilings, or even to the outdoors. When this happens some areas will get more cooling than others.
When you have cracks in the ductwork, not only will it compromise your cooling, it will sap your energy use and raise your utility bills. Your system will have to work harder as it tries to cool the office areas. The only way to solve this problem is to have the duct system inspected and any cracks repaired to stop and prevent leaks.
Lack of Commercial Maintenance
Another factor that can affect the performance of a commercial cooling system is a lack of maintenance. Regular maintenance can ensure the system is running properly and that there are no issues with functioning.
Common issues can include dirty or clogged filters, problems with the condenser, refrigerant leaks, dirty condenser coils or evaporator units, friction in the moving parts that can cause the motor to malfunction, and electrical issues. When your commercial cooling system is inspected, cleaned, and adjusted yearly, you can avoid breakdowns and ensure consistent cooling throughout your whole office.
If you’re feeling the heat in one part of your office, but a deep freeze in another, your cooling system could need some professional attention. For the professional commercial services you need for your office, contact our team at H.H. Hovey Heating and Cooling, Inc.
