Commercial HVAC systems are put under high stress throughout the year. Unlike the HVAC system in your home, commercial appliances must control areas independently and account for high-volume, high production rooms within your facility. A commercial kitchen, medical facility, or manufacturing site also requires additional ventilation to ensure safe indoor air quality for all guests and employees. Because of this incredible workload, commercial HVAC units need preventative care throughout the year in order to perform well.
One of the most important parts of commercial HVAC maintenance is air duct cleaning. This essential service should be performed on a regular schedule in order to maintain indoor air quality and climate control. Below are just a few of the reasons why air duct cleaning should be a critical and regular part of your maintenance schedule:
Air duct cleaning reduces dust and indoor air contaminant circulation
Air ducts can become homes for dust, dirt, mold, mildew, and other indoor air contaminants if not cleaned regularly. When these begin to circulate through your system, they can cause health problems within your facility and performance issues within the system itself. By cleaning the air ducts, you can keep the air clean and breathable for tenants.
If air ducts are not cleaned regularly, mold and mildew can begin to spread, which will deteriorate the parts within the system. Cleaning can also help to improve the efficiency of parts and allow your technician to identify needed repairs.
An HVAC system that is constantly trying to fight dust and debris will have to work harder than one that is cleaned regularly. This extra work wastes energy even in a newer or energy-efficient unit. If you want to lower your heating and cooling costs, preventative maintenance is essential.
