3 Common Commercial AC Repair Needs

Owning a business means that you have to pay extra attention to your commercial HVAC system. It is crucial in helping you maintain a comfortable environment for both your team members and your customers. But how do you know when your commercial air conditioner needs to be repaired?

We are highlighting three common commercial AC repair needs and the early signs of each one. That way, you can call to schedule commercial AC repair in Apopka earlier rather than later. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of acting fast when you suspect a problem with your commercial air conditioner.

Inconsistent Temperatures

Is your business experiencing inconsistent temperatures? This can manifest in a couple of different ways. You may have areas of your business that are cooler while others are warmer, sometimes called having warm spots or hot spots. Or, you could have inconsistent temperatures throughout the day. Your commercial HVAC system may cool the air effectively for part of the day while the rest of the day your business feels warm and uncomfortable.

Inconsistent temperatures in different areas can point to ductwork problems that need to be addressed. However, inconsistent temperatures throughout the day can indicate that your HVAC system doesn’t have enough power to cool your business all day long. This usually happens during the hottest part of the day when temperatures are higher. You may need to upgrade the units to gain more cooling power or make repairs to some of the components that are struggling.

Lack of Ventilation

You may also face ventilation problems with your business. When you don’t have enough ventilation, you can face a couple of different problems. The first is that the air may be heavy and stale. This is because it is not getting circulated well enough. You may also face problems with high humidity or elevated temperatures.

Ventilation is important when it comes to allowing heat to escape your business via the outdoor unit. If the outdoor unit is clogged with dirt, heat cannot escape the way it was designed to. Heat gets trapped inside your business and no amount of cooling power will matter. Cool air will blow into your business while heat remains trapped since it cannot funnel away properly.

Ventilation also helps with air circulating through your business. You want to keep a steady stream of fresh air coming into your business so the air feels lighter and cleaner. Otherwise, germs, bacteria, and other pollutants get trapped in the air and continue recirculating over and over again. Indoor air pollution can increase until the air is as much as five times more polluted than the outdoor air. Your business may feel stuffy and even humid as a result.

Drain Line Clogs

It’s also important to pay attention to any potential leaks from within your commercial air conditioner. Leaks can mean that the condensate drain line is clogged. Instead of the moisture that condenses down from humidity being released outside, it gets trapped in the line and leaks back out into your business. 

You run the risk of water damage, but the droplets can also evaporate back into the air and increase humidity levels all over again. Once our team is able to break down a tough condensate drain clog, you can take steps to prevent the clogs from happening again in the future.
