Keeping Your AC System Cleaner

Are You Ready For Next Summer? How To Tell If Your Commercial AC Needs Repairs

by Yolanda White

When you run a business, you owe it to your employees to make sure that they're comfortable in their work environment. That includes making sure that the heating and air conditioning systems work properly. When they don't, you could be left facing some serious problems. Not to mention the fact that your employees will be extremely uncomfortable. Now that winter is here, you're using your heater. However, once summer arrives, you'll need to watch for air conditioner problems. Luckily, your air conditioner will give you some clear signs when it's in need of assistance. Here are three signs you should watch for next summer. If you notice any of them, you should contact your repair technician as soon as possible.

Your Employees Are Getting Sick

You might not realize this, but if your air conditioner is dirty, or has mold growing in the ducts or coils, your air quality isn't going to be as good as it should be. Once the air quality is compromised, you could end up with sick employees. If you start noticing that your employees are requiring more sick days than they once were, it's a good idea to have your air conditioner serviced.

You've Got a Moisture Problem

When air conditioners go on the fritz, they can produce more moisture than they should. That condensation is then visible on your windows, and on other surfaces in your office. Unfortunately, if you have a moisture problem related to your air conditioner, you could also end up with a mold problem, which could then turn into a health issue for your employees. If you've got moisture buildup in your office, it could be caused by your air conditioner. To identify the problem, and resolve it, contact your air conditioner repair technician and schedule a service call.

You've Inherited an AC with Questionable Maintenance

If you've recently purchased a pre-existing commercial building, and the previous owners were unable to provide you with service records for the air conditioner, there's a good chance that it wasn't properly maintained. If you're not sure about the condition of your commercial air conditioning unit, it's a good idea to have it inspected and serviced before you begin using it.

Don't take chances with your commercial air conditioner, or your employees comfort while they're at work. Make sure your office stays cool, and that you avoid mechanical breakdowns this summer, by paying close attention to the details described above.
