Common Commercial HVAC Repairs

Whether it’s in your home or your place of business, you need to have your heating and cooling system working in top condition to keep you comfortable and prevent energy waste. But where HVAC troubles in your home will mean inconvenience for a few people, when the HVAC system in a commercial space needs repairs, it means discomfort for a larger number of people, a drop in work productivity, and a possible loss of revenue. When your commercial HVAC needs repairs, don’t wait a moment longer than you need to: call Ideal Services Heating & Cooling (919) 205-0998 and talk to our commercial specialists. We are ready 24 hours a day to restore your company’s comfort.

There are some similarities between commercial and residential HVAC repair services, but not many. The extent of commercial air conditioning and heating, and the unusual configurations (such as rooftop package units), make them the domain of specialists trained in these systems. You can’t just rely on residential repair technicians to tackle the job. Here are a few of the common commercial repairs that need trained technicians familiar with heating and cooling a business:

Fixing the Thermostat Systems and Zone Control

Businesses need more than one control panel to operate their larger HVAC systems, and they also must worry about creating individual comfort for more people. Because of this, the thermostats are more complex for commercial HVAC and often need repairs to restore their connections to the air conditioner/heater or to each other. Most HVAC for businesses use zone control—the ability to conditioned different rooms independently of each other—and sometimes the dampers in the ventilation system and the thermostats that control them need repairs.

Repairing Damage to the Fan

The standard for commercial HVAC systems is the rooftop package unit, which combines all the components necessary into a single cabinet instead of split across indoor and outdoor units. The location on the roof keeps the cabinet away from human damage, but it is still exposed to the weather. This can lead to damage to the fans inside the system due to debris infiltration, and this will affect both air flow and heating and cooling. Technicians will need to open up the rooftop unit and repair or replace the fans.

Recharging Refrigerant

The refrigerant loss will cause severe problems to an HVAC system, preventing it from properly absorbing or releasing heat. Technicians must use pressure sensors to discover where the refrigerant is leaking from the system, and then seal the leak and supply the right level of the correct blend of refrigerant to restore the system to proper operation. Too much or too little added refrigerant can lead to serious issues, so make sure that you have technicians on the job familiar with commercial units.

Please don’t jeopardize your company and employees with amateur work on your HVAC system, or by hiring technicians who aren’t familiar with commercial comfort technology. Instead, contact Ideal Services Heating & Cooling , where we take pride in the services we provide for commercial HVAC.
