Deciding when it’s time to repair or replace your commercial heating and cooling system can be difficult. As with any mechanical system, there are many factors to consider, including the equipment’s age, condition, and business plans and goals.
Even if your older system still seems to be running smoothly, you might consider investing in a new model, especially if your system is more than ten years old. A higher-efficiency system can significantly reduce your energy costs, thus increasing your bottom line. As an added benefit, an improved system can improve air quality and enhance your employee’s and customers’ comfort.
Below are some of the most common signs that your commercial heating and cooling may need to be replaced:
Limited & lack of cool airflow
Suppose you start noticing a lack of cool or hot airflow throughout different areas of the space and seem to have vastly different temperatures. HVAC’s often clogs in the piping/ductwork, which restricts the airflow. In that case, you should schedule a technician to come and determine whether your commercial heating and cooling system needs to be replaced.
Energy Is Lost Through Exhaustion
Typically, you commercial heating and cooling system will loose energy through HVAC exhaust. However, newer HVAC systems will reduce their life time expectancy of energy loss by 50%-80%. If you notice loss of energy, contact us and it may be time to replace your commercial heating and cooling system.
Grinding, squeaking, or chattering sounds shouldn’t be typically in your commercial heating and cooling system, but the majority of HVAC’s will have a slight operate noise that is faintly noticeable. Still, if you start noticing frequent unusual sounds, it may be time to discuss replacing your commercial heating and cooling system.
A HVAC should be filtering clean and neutral smelling air. Suppose you start noticing strange smokey or burning smells around the space, in that case, you should schedule a technician to come and replace your commercial heating and cooling system immediately.
As your HVAC ages, you will notice an increase in utility bills as its efficiency begins to drop. If you see an unusual increase in costs, it may be time to replace your commercial heating and cooling system.
