How Far Ahead of the Summer Should You Schedule Commercial AC Maintenance?

Commercial AC Maintenance

If you’re wondering when to schedule your commercial services team to perform routine HVAC maintenance, the answer is you probably should have already done it! The goal of regular maintenance is to ensure your system is in peak condition before the summer heat hits. Otherwise, you run the risk of placing a lot of strain on a system that’s ill prepared to handle it.

However, in case you missed the boat, then now is the best time to get your routine maintenance scheduled.

HVAC Maintenance Tasks for Spring and Summer

While not a completely comprehensive list (yours should be tailored to your needs based on the system type and age of your components), it’s a good starting place:

  • Clean and/or replace HVAC filters
  • Inspect all mechanical belts and pulleys
  • Clean and inspect condenser coils
  • Clean and inspect evaporator coils
  • Check refrigerant levels and ensure there are no leaks
  • Clear drain lines
  • Empty and clean drain pans
  • Inspect electrical connections
  • Ensure fan and motor are running smoothly; adjust as needed
  • Lubricate the motor, belts, and other moving parts
  • Calibrate thermostats
  • Measure air flow and adjust as needed

It’s also not too early to begin thinking about prepping your system for the fall and winter. While you don’t need to have it all done today, it’s a good idea to get your appointment on the books a month or two in advance. That way, if there’s a freak cold snap and your system is called into service, it will be well prepared to handle the load.
