What Does It Mean to Spring Clean Commercial HVAC Units?

After cold, dreary winters, it’s natural for people to want to sweep out the stale dust of hibernation and go out into the light and warmth of spring. If you’re a property manager, you probably know that “spring cleaning” is an accepted, healthy practice that’s good for your facility. You know about cleaning floors, bathrooms, upholstery, and fixtures. But what does it mean to “spring clean” your commercial HVAC unit?

Spring cleaning is a multi-faceted task essential for the health of your HVAC equipment! Here’s what you need to do.

Use true professionals to spring clean your commercial HVAC

Commercial HVAC is complex equipment that requires professional installation and maintenance. Knowledge of electricity and handling of toxic refrigerants is needed, so this is not a job you can do yourself.

Call Elite Heating and Air Conditioning now to schedule your spring cleaning so you’ll be ready when the weather heats up.

Here’s what spring-cleaning your commercial HVAC unit includes:

Testing All Equipment

After enduring the effects of frigid winter temperatures, your HVAC system’s equipment may have sustained damage. Sometimes mice chew wires. Occasionally, a critter crawls into a building and leaves fur and nesting material that gets sucked into the airflow, clogging filters.

A thorough spring cleaning includes performing an inspection of all components, including compressors, fans, motors, and electrical connections, to ensure proper operation and optimal performance.

Cleaning Coils

The coils in your HVAC system act as a barrier between harmful pathogens and the supply of breathable air in your commercial space. Cleaning the coils prevents the spread of airborne pollutants, reduces the workload on your equipment, and maintains proper heat transfer.

Cleaning the coils makes a difference to the efficiency of your system. The U.S. Department of Energy suggests that dirty evaporator and condenser coils can decrease cooling efficiency by up to 30%!

Balance Airflow

The professionals from Elite Heating and Air Conditioning inspect the airflow within your commercial space. We check and clean air filters to ensure breathable air is distributed effectively. Dirty filters can hinder airflow and reduce system efficiency. (Do you know when yours were last changed?)

Dirty filters can reduce HVAC efficiency by up to 15%, and you or any non-professional can change your air filter since it doesn’t require special training.

But if Elite does the “Spring cleaning” on your HVAC and you have the filters, we’ll be happy to put them in!

Lubricate and Tighten Moving Parts

Proper lubrication of moving parts (such as motors, bearings, and belts) ensures smooth operation and reduces wear and tear. Over time, and with the cold temperatures of winter, moving parts may have loosened. We’ll tighten any loose connections to prevent system failures or mechanical problems.

Test Sensors, Valves, Relays, and Shutoff Switches

A spring cleaning of your commercial HVAC ensures that all sensors, valves, relays, and safety switches are functioning correctly. These components play a crucial role in system performance and safety.

Check Refrigerant Levels and Pressures to Guarantee Efficient Cooling

Our professional technician can measure refrigerant levels and check for any contaminants that may affect system performance. They will check the pressure of the condenser and make sure it’s at the right level to move and convert the refrigerant.

Evaluate thermostat accuracy and calibration

If your thermostat gets out of whack, your air conditioning and heating can’t work effectively.

Spring-cleaning of commercial HVAC systems includes checking the thermostats.

We can also explain the benefits of programmable thermostats and “smart” thermostats that are connected to Building Automation Systems and can adjust for the weather and remind you to change your air filters!
