Your commercial HVAC system has to move a lot of air into a space that provides comfort to employees, and perhaps inventory and customers. Careful maintenance and regular monitoring of your commercial HVAC unit in Indio, CA, is critical to the functioning of your business
Installing a unit that’s too small means your HVAC system will always be trying to catch up. You may find that some areas of the building are always either too hot or too cold.
An oversized unit can also cause problems, creating areas in the building that are either far too hot or too cool. Experts recommend that you monitor different spaces in your building for inconsistent temperatures and get a professional to assess the sizing of your HVAC unit.
If your HVAC unit is on the roof, storms and other weather challenges can cause a great deal of unnoticed damage. Once the unit kicks on, you may find that a bent fan or a piece of debris has caused serious damage to the unit. To stay ahead of Mother Nature, experts recommend you keep your roof checked for debris and make sure your rooftop units are visually inspected by a maintenance technician on a regular basis.
Per authorities on energy codes, commercial units require a 5-degree thermostat deadband. The deadband refers to the temperature range when nothing, neither AC nor heat, is triggered.
For best comfort in close spaces of client contact, such as offices and conference rooms, try to pick a temperature that will suit nearly everyone and leave the thermostat alone. Keep doors open whenever possible to allow for the fullest air movement, and use fans if any portion of the space is too warm or feels muggy.
