As autumn approaches the weather gets progressively cooler, and certain parts of the United States switch from using their air cooling to their air heating. Both functions run off the same HVAC system, of course, and proper maintenance is required in order for the units to run as efficiently as possible. This is especially true in business or commercial facilities where the comfort of all employees and customers is the facility manager’s responsibility.
One of the best ways to improve the heating efficiency of your HVAC system is to give it a thorough inspection before it starts being heavily used. Odds are that the system was used a lot during the summer, but until the weather really turns it might be idler. During that time of decreased use, look over the entire system, especially the heating components. By doing this, you can catch problems like dirty or damaged heating coils early on, and repair them before they are needed.
It is also a good idea to inspect the ventilation systems of the facility. Even if the AC system seems to be working properly, if airflow is restricted, it will reduce the efficiency of the system overall. Replace filters now to ensure the system isn’t working harder than it has to.
