2 Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Commercial Air Conditioner

About Me
A Family Gathering Place

A couple of years ago, I discovered I would inherit a building located on my late grandfather’s property. This small structure contained a kitchen, a dining room, a bathroom, and a bedroom. The building, situated near two ponds, was constructed to be used as a family gathering place. Numerous birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays were celebrated in this cozy waterfront building. Do you long to have a separate place to entertain family and friends in? Consider hiring a general contractor to construct an additional structure on your property. You might want your general contractor to install an industrial sized kitchen and a huge great room in this space. Instead of always hosting parties in your home, you can entertain in this building. On this blog, I hope you will discover how a general contractor can help make your entertaining dreams come true.

2 Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Commercial Air Conditioner

Considering how much it costs to cool an entire commercial facility, it only makes sense that you do everything that you can in order to lower those costs as much as possible. Listed below are two tips that can help you get the most out of your commercial air conditioner and make it much more efficient.

Have the Entire System Cleaned

One of the first things that you should do when trying to get the most out of your air conditioner is to have a service come in and clean the entire system. For example, you will want the service to clean out the air-intake filter for the air conditioner because this will not only make the indoor air quality in your entire facility better but will also improve airflow to the air conditioner. Improved airflow to the air conditioner means that it does not have to work as hard or as long in order to cool your facility, and this leads to lower utility bills every month.

In addition, you will want to make sure that the air-conditioning service also inspects and cleans the air conditioner itself. The reason for this is that debris such as dirt or branches can be blown into your commercial air-conditioning unit during a storm or windy day, and this can impede the airflow into the system or cause the fans to stop turning.

Have the Duct Network Inspected

Another way to get the most out of your commercial air conditioner is to have someone come and inspect your entire duct network. One of the things that the air-conditioning service will be looking for when inspecting the duct network is the existence of any dirt, debris, or other obstructions that could be limiting airflow from the air conditioner to the rest of your facility.

If any obstructions are found and cleaned out, you will likely notice that your commercial facility will end up cooler in a shorter amount of time and that your utility bills will drop. In addition,  the air-conditioning service will also be looking for any improperly sealed seams in your duct network that could be allowing cold air to leak out before the air reaches the vents into your facility. Once those seams are properly sealed or repaired, your facility will be less subject to duct loss, and this will make your whole air-conditioning system more efficient.

Contact a commercial air-conditioning service today in order to discuss how they may be able to help you improve your system's efficiency. Having the entire air-conditioning system cleaned and having the duct network inspected are two easy and effective ways of getting the most out of your air-conditioning system.
