Summer is approaching and now is the time to prepare your building for the extreme heat and humidity to come with the season. Adam Luensman, Business Development Representative with TP Mechanical, recommends regular preventative maintenance to keep your building’s HVAC system in top-notch condition.
Preventative maintenance is important to maintain and extend the overall life of your HVAC equipment and keep lifecycle costs down. TP wants to build a long-term partnership with each client to help them take care of their HVAC systems.
Follow these 5 maintenance tips to prepare your building for the summer months:
1. Start Thinking About Summer Early
Ideally, you want to start thinking about your summer preventative maintenance now—April and May are months to have a certified technician check your systems for cooling. This way, you will have time to update or service any equipment as needed.
2. Have the Coils Cleaned
Clean coils will ensure that your cooling units will be running at peak efficiency while helping to minimize utility cost.
3. Change the Air Filters
The air filters are key for maintaining the quality of the environment in any building. Using high quality air filters, and changing them frequently, can extend the life of your HVAC system. While there’s a lot more that goes into regular preventative maintenance, changing the air filters should be a top priority.
4. Consider It an Investment
Preventative maintenance is a good investment for any building. Adam recommends thinking about it like maintenance on your car: If you don’t change the oil, the engine will lock up. It’s the same for your HVAC system. Regular preventative maintenance is the key to a long-functioning system.
5. Call a Professional
Don’t try to do your preventative maintenance yourself. A professional offers proven solutions and experience working with the complexities of HVAC equipment in our local environment. A professional can help you prevent costly downtime.
