Here’s Why Your Commercial AC Needs Maintenance


Whether you’ve been a residential customer of ours, previous commercial customer, or this is the first time you’ve seen our name, you’ll quickly find that something we promote pretty heavily is air conditioning maintenance. Let’s face it, it gets hot around here this season, and you need to make sure your air conditioner is prepared. This is true for any building with an air conditioner, but especially commercial properties, which often have extensive needs.

We’re guessing that you want to ensure your building’s occupants are healthy and comfortable, whether it’s employees, tenants, customers, or visitors. Maintenance will accomplish this, plus it will protect your commercial HVAC equipment from overheating or experiencing other problems that can lead to a business interruption. Read on to learn more!

When Did You Last Schedule Commercial AC Maintenance?

We understand how much effort and skill it takes to manage or run a business. After all, we do it too! Understandably, you have a lot to do from day-to-day, and it can be easy to let preventative maintenance fall to the wayside.

However, when you sign up for commercial maintenance with our team, we can make sure that the service is done on a regular basis–once a year. Or twice a year if you’re using a year-round commercial heat pump system.

Spring air conditioning maintenance for your commercial HVAC system is typically a 1-2 hour job–though this can vary by the size of your business and how many units you have. You won’t need to worry about it, though, if you have rooftop units. We’ll be up and out of your way, allowing you to continue to run your business or manage your commercial space.

What Actually Happens During Commercial AC Maintenance?

Putting it simply, maintenance allows our commercial HVAC technicians to thoroughly inspect, clean, and adjust components that need it. This helps the system work as efficiently and effectively as possible, for as long as possible. More specifically, our commercial technicians will:

  • Change or clean the air filters. You should actually have this done much more often than once a year, as clogged air filters can lead to a number of problems like reduced airflow and frozen coils.
  • Lubricate all moving parts to reduce friction.
  • Inspect the units’ operation to ensure functionality and safety.
  • Tighten all electrical connections.
  • Check on the refrigerant levels. If your system is losing any refrigerant, it means that you have a leak that needs to be located and repaired.
  • Clean the indoor and outdoor coils to ensure proper operation.
  • Calibrate the thermostat(s) to improve temperature precision and system efficiency.
  • Test the performance of each unit.
  • Thoroughly check the area surrounding the outdoor and/or rooftop units for possibly disruptive obstructions that could impact system performance.

If during this service, our technicians notice any problem areas, we will alert you to them right away so you can get repairs on your schedule and limit the chance of a service and business interruption!
