Temperature Control for your facility!

It's super hot outside and not quite fall yet. This summer you may notice some employees are taking vacations, sudden sick days, or even less productive when they're in the office. But there are some thoughts that may be forgotten and this is how hard your facilities HVAC equipment is really working.  We cannot stress enough on how important it is to maintain those units.  This will not only save your equipment in the future but it can save you a lot of money down the road.  There is a way to balance that productivity in the office and stress that your equipment is going to fail you in these times of need like the summer months.

One major way to keep cool this summer, and keep your employees comfortable is by maintaining your equipment and keeping those coils clean.  This simple task will prolong the life of your equipment and keep your HVAC unit from continuously running.  This also means less money out that window.

Another thing to look out for is dirty ducts.  This can also cause those same issues.  A dirty duct can be restricting the air flow which also will keep your equipment from running properly.  Ducts can also be leaky, torn, or even disconnected.

One more idea to keep cool this summer is to keep your unit set at a comfortable temperature.  If you are a business owner and find that your employees may be messing with the controls this can cause issues for you and your unit as well.  We understand that coming inside when it is hot out, the first thing you may want to do is turn down that air but the lower you set the temperature it will not cool your office any faster. You need to just let the HVAC run it's course.  This can save you a lot of money and keep those units healthy from not consistently running.


If there are any further questions you may have please feel free to reach out at any time.  Also, if you would like more information on how we can help you maintain your equipment please reach out to us.
