2017 Commercial HVAC tips. The June 21 Summer Solstice marked the official start of summer! And with that comes fun times at the shore, BBQs… and hot and humid weather! But don’t sweat, with a little planning, you can ensure a comfortable working environment in your office.
Hutchinson, a leading energy services and mechanical services contractor serving the Tri-State Region’s commercial customers, offers tips to help add life to HVAC systems, keep you feeling comfortable, and improve the bottom line.
Get an AC inspection and tune up.
Hutchinson’s certificated technicians will test the HVAC system to determine if any repairs are needed. Preventive maintenance will keep the system running smooth and efficiently, and extend its service life, too.
It’s a new season, which means it’s time to change your filter. As a rule of thumb, change filters every quarter or as needed.
Install programmable controls.
Get peace of mind knowing your AC is set just right – not too low and not too high – with a 21st century control system. It provides greater efficiency and can be controlled from a mobile device. Plus, Hutchinson’s Honeywell Web Certified technicians can access temperature controls online, and quickly monitor and repair any heating or cooling issues remotely.
Get ductwork inspected and cleaned.
Leaks or cracks can reduce energy efficiency in HVAC systems and result in higher utility bills. A duct system that’s properly cleaned and sealed can save businesses money and promote wellness and comfort.
Keep outdoor areas clear.
Check out your exterior HVAC unit. Is it clear from brush and debris? Make sure plants or branches aren’t blocking or touching the unit. A good rule of thumb is to have two feet of clearance around the unit.
