It’s no secret that being comfortable helps your company’s team stay healthy and maintain productivity. And here in North Central Florida, that is especially essential once our temperatures climb back up in the spring and summer. But how do you ensure that your commercial AC unit runs at its best? We’ve got the 6 ultimate tips you need to stay cool at work this year.
1. Choose the Proper Equipment.
When you’re building a new office space or replacing your existing unit, purchasing the proper size equipment is necessary to maintain efficiency and functionality. With the guidance of your Comfort Temp team, we’ll help you choose the size and brand that works best for your commercial spaces.
2. Check Your Filtration.
Proper filtration is an important component of your commercial AC system because it helps remove contaminants from your air while replacing it with clean air. Many commercial HVAC brands carry various filtration systems that can mount directly onto your unit.
3. Prevent Humidity.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor humidity should be kept at 60% or less. Levels between 30-50% help prevent the following.
- Mold growth
- Dust mite formation
- Pest breeding (such as cockroaches)
- Bacteria and virus spread
To keep your business’s humidity at an optimal level, we offer commercial humidifiers and dehumidifiers.
4. Clean and Seal Your Ducts.
The Department of Energy estimates that 20-30% of the air that moves through an HVAC system is lost due to leaks, holes, and faulty duct connection points. This not only makes your unit work so much harder to keep your commercial buildings cool, but it also costs you more money on your monthly utility bill. Duct cleaning is a critical part of your AC unit maintenance plan and is one that helps you and your team breathe easier.
5. Schedule an Inspection.
Another way to keep your commercial AC unit working properly is to ensure you schedule checkups annually. During our inspections, we’ll thoroughly examine every part of your unit to check for potential issues so we can solve them before they become more frustrating and costly. Annual check-ups help you know if your unit is overworking so, you can prevent avoidable wear and tear.
6. Invest in a Maintenance Plan.
As a business owner, you have enough on your plate without having to also worry about your Florida company’s commercial AC unit. When you decide to trust your HVAC maintenance needs to Comfort Temp Heating & Air, you don’t even have to remember to schedule your unit’s annual maintenance. Instead, our expert technicians come to you and service your unit at no additional charge.
