The end of winter brings about all sorts of activity. Animals come out of hibernation, plants and flowers start to bloom, and the weather brings the smell of a new year. Everyone starts working to bring about a new start and new growth. Repair and maintenance work are a matter of fact since it’s basically impossible to do these things in the middle of winter.
Spring is the best time for you to fix up your company’s HVAC system. You don’t want to have to do it at the height of summer when your employees are going to need the cooling power the most. Your HVAC system will likely have gone through the wringer during the winter handling heating duty.
Most business will have outdoor units that are larger and have more nooks and crannies than typical residential units. With the warmer spring weather, all sorts of animals will be out and about, looking for new places to nest. You may not think it, but the various warm spaces in an HVAC unit are actually very attractive to birds, rodents, or other animals. Their nests and droppings can have an adverse effect on the effectiveness of your HVAC! Check on these early to make sure that you aren’t giving a home to these critters.
While you’re at it, you should also check on any dirt and debris that could have accumulated on the condenser coils. Depending on where your units are located, a large amount of trash or vegetation could be caught in the coils. To get the best possible performance from your unit means keeping these condenser coils as clear as possible. The surrounding area also needs to be cleaned and cleared to prevent future plant growth from blocking the coils.
Spring also means more allergens and pollens in the air. A good cleaning or replacement of the HVAC air filters can increase their effectiveness and help prevent allergic breakouts among the employees, preventing any loss of productivity and morale. Indoor air quality is a major factor in workplace happiness and health, and ensuring that your workers have good air is of paramount importance.
A system that isn’t properly maintained can have half the lifespan of a professionally maintained system. Replacements and repairs are vastly more costly than regular maintenance. The HVAC system is likely one of the most expensive and essential systems for your business. By preparing and maintaining it early on, you can prevent any possible issues and allow yourself peace of mind for the rest of the year.
