As a busy business manager or owner, you are responsible for so many vital aspects of your company’s efficiency, which means one thing you do not have time for is figuring out everything your HVAC systems need so that you can properly choose/negotiate your HVAC preventative maintenance contract. That’s why, our talented experts at AFM Heating & Cooling have done all the hard work for you, putting together the ultimate commercial HVAC preventative maintenance checklist just for you! Just remember, the age, condition, size, location, usage, and type of HVAC equipment you use may vary, which means above all else you should always discuss your needs with your HVAC maintenance provider, and make sure your maintenance plan is personalized to suit your system’s specific needs. In the meantime of course, you should make sure your maintenance plan includes certain basic tasks, such as:
Typically you will see your HVAC technician only twice a year so long as everything is going well; once at the start of spring when things start getting warmer, and again toward the end of summer when things start cooling down. All-season maintenance tasks, though, refer to things that need to be checked more than once a year, and should be looked at and/or taken care of every time your technician comes around. These include:
- Filter replacements;
- Belt/pulley inspections and replacements;
- Drain line and pan cleanings;
- Fan and blower motor inspections, and necessary adjustments;
- The testing of all electrical components;
- System-wide lubrications, including all bearings, motors, and other mechanized parts;
- Thermostat/control inspections.
A/C Maintenance for Spring & Summer
Other tasks, like those that only affect the cooling system specifically, may only need to be taken care of annually, at the start of the season, because they will not be in use the rest of the year, such as:
- Coil cleanings, including condenser coils and evaporator coils;
- Refrigerant charge and leak inspections;
- Air flow inspections.
Heating Maintenance for Fall & Winter
The same is true for your heating systems as well. Aside from your basic all-season maintenance tasks, your contract should always include important heating-specific system care as well, like:
- Heat exchanger inspections;
- Ignition and burner assembly inspections.
