Common Commercial HVAC Problems

With almost four decades of working in commercial spaces, our team at Del-Air Mechanical has seen our fair share of HVAC problems. Fortunately, we’re sharing how to spot them and even prevent them from happening in today’s blog. Keep your business in peak performance by making sure your HVAC system is too.

Dirty air filters

Is there constant sneezing going on in your office or building? It’s not just the pollen floating around that’s the culprit. If you can’t recall the last time you changed your HVAC system’s filter, then it's likely the cause. These filters can quickly build up with dirt, dust, and other allergens then spread throughout your building. This is a common oversight, so just remember to change it at the beginning or end of every quarter. Fortunately, the solution is quite simple and can be done without professional help. However, if your HVAC system is located in a hard to reach place like the roof then you may need to call someone.

Inconsistent airflow

Have you ever noticed your coworker in a short sleeve while you’re in your parka? You might be wondering how they’re immune to the freezing climate in the office but it might be because of a leaky air duct. Ducts are notorious for losing energy through cracks, which is why we recommend getting them serviced. If this problem continues, consider VRF systems. One of their many advantages includes ductless heating and cooling.

Odd noises

If you begin to hear weird noises such as rumbling or clanking, there may be something loose in your ductwork. Unfortunately, this problem won’t go away until you get it inspected and removed.

Strange odor

Musty smells could mean you have a mildew or mold problem on your hands. Due to the health hazards, this is something you’ll want to get taken care of immediately. If there are any leaks then there’s a possibility of spores spreading around. In order to ensure everyone’s safety, including yours, get it taken care of by a team of experts.
