What does HVAC stand for? Heating, ventilation and air conditioning… That’s a lot to combine into one very important system. The system that controls the comfort, health, safety and air quality of your office or property. With so many functions in one system, there is great potential for breakdown that could lead to a catastrophic business failure.
A few common issues that could need attention on your HVAC system include:
Frozen evaporator coil: This can happen due to improper maintenance. Clogged filters or air returns restrict airflow causing the evaporator coil to freeze. Occasionally low refrigerant will also cause this issue.
Dirty condenser coils: Because the condenser coils are located outside they are exposed to weather, dirt, debris. Condenser coils should also be part of your regular HVAC maintenance and need to be cleaned yearly.
Low refrigerant: This often signals leaks in the lines or coils. A system requiring recharging likely means a leak not only requiring repair but recharging. As noted previously, low refrigerant can cause the evaporator coil to freeze up so it should be addressed immediately to avoid further degradation of your system.
Clogged drain lines: Clogs are caused by dirt and debris in the lines. The clog will cause water to back up and overflow causing damage to other parts of the system.
Electrical problems: Bad wiring or contactors can cause the system to short or quit running completely.
Blown fuses: A blow fuse could simply be that – a tripped circuit. But it could be a symptom of a larger issue. Since fuses work to keep the motor and compressor from overheating, it is critical to keep fuses replaced.
Dirty air filters: If air filters are not changed regularly, they become dirty and cause significant other issues including underperformance of your system and freezing of the condenser.
You will notice that all of the issues are caused by not maintaining your HVAC system. With regular maintenance, you can avoid most problems that might arise. But as a business owner, your top priority needs to be running your business. Who has time to worry about and schedule maintenance on an HVAC system.
