What you need to know about commercial services and your air conditioner this summer.
HVAC commercial services techs get a lot of calls about air conditioning problems, especially in the heat of the summer, some more common than others. Are you having trouble with even air distribution in your commercial building? You’re not alone. This is one of the top reported HVAC issues during the summer. And there are some common reasons this occurs:
Air Filters need to be replaced
This is the number one cause of airflow problems in HVAC units, both residential and commercial, but it’s also one of the easiest to fix. Dirt and debris in air filters can restrict airflow causing uneven cooling throughout the building. Cleaning or changing the filters regularly should solve the problem.
It can be hard to tell if you have ductwork issues, especially in a big building, but this is one of the most common causes of uneven airflow. Blockages are the primary issue. If there is dirt or debris or broken venting in an area of the ducts it will prevent air from flowing to certain areas while overcompensating in others.
Wrong Size HVAC
If the HVAC unit in your building is too small it will have to work overtime to try to meet demand, and, as you can expect, will cause uneven and inadequate cooling during the summer, and extra wear and tear to the equipment over time.
If the HVAC unit in your building is too big it will turn on and off inconsistently which results in uneven cooling and excess energy use. Make sure you have the right size system for the size and needs of your building.
Commercial HVAC is more complex than residential and it can often be more challenging to determine the cause of uneven air distribution. With the right tools and knowledge the tech can get you the answers you need and solve your cooling problems.
