How to Know When It is Time for Commercial Services for your HVAC

Commercial-HVAC

Understanding when commercial services for your HVAC is long overdue.

Managing a residential HVAC service is important enough, but maintaining commercial service on your commercial or industrial HVAC is critical to your business’s survival. A poorly maintained commercial HVAC system affects your customers, your employees, and your product. A breakdown in the system could have devastating and extremely costly consequences.

What Are Some of the Things Commercial Services Check?

Commercial service checks on your HVAC system can help you to keep an eye out on the following:

  • They can provide you with installation and repairs during off hours so that you don’t experience workday disruption or loss of profit.
  • They can look out for things like system leaks and zoning to make sure that everything is functioning smoothly.
  • They can run energy audits on your existing system so that you can be sure you’re not bleeding money anywhere.

What Type of Commercial Services Does Your Business Need?

The type of service you look into entirely depends on the size of your business, the kind of HVAC system you have, and the type of business you’re running. If you’re operating a massive butcher facility, you’ll need a system that will continuously and flawlessly function at extremely low temps, while a small fashion designer’s office will have completely different needs.

No matter what your heating and cooling needs are, it’s vital to have an expert in your corner. Speak to the pros at Morelli Heating &d Air Conditioning for the best commercial services in the region. Connect with us online now or call 843.554.8600 to schedule service.

What Are the Advantages of a Geothermal System?

Find out if geothermal systems are for your home.

You may have heard about geothermal systems and how they promote higher energy efficiency, but you’re still not sure if they are right for your home’s climate control needs. You can get a clue as to what geothermal means by the very word itself. Geo is the term for the earth, while thermal refers to heat. In a nutshell, geothermal uses heat and the earth to either heat or cool a building.

How Exactly Do Geothermal Systems Work?

When a homeowner or business uses a geothermal system, they’re taking water-based heat pumps and strategically placing them around their property. These pumps move heat from one area to another to either warm it up or cool it down. When it’s hot outside, the pumps draw the heat from the house and release it down into the cooler earth. The pump then uses that now-cool water to make cool, air-conditioned air for your home. The reverse happens in the winter, with the delivering warmth from deep below the surface into your home, heating it.

Is a Geothermal System Energy Efficient?

Many people note that these systems are high on the energy efficiency scale, often four times as efficient as a traditional HVAC system. The homes that save the most money are those that are well insulated. The cost savings over time make any early initial costs worth it.

Why Should You Spend Money on an HVAC Agreement?

Commercial-HVAC

Choosing HVAC maintenance agreements is a smart money move.

Regular service for your HVAC system isn’t something most people think about until something goes wrong, and this is where maintenance agreements can help. Your home’s HVAC system is one of the single most important parts of your home’s setup, keeping you warm in winter and cool in the summer. There are many moving parts to the system, and if any of them break down or run into issues, you could be out in the cold (or the heat) at the most inopportune times. To make sure that doesn’t happen, an HVAC agreement can help.

What Does an HVAC Agreement Do?

An HVAC maintenance agreement helps ensure that your system runs smoothly year-round without sudden, inconvenient system breakdowns and repair costs. By having a maintenance agreement with your HVAC company, you can take comfort in the knowledge that the company will run routine maintenance checks on your system so that tiny, easily fixable issues don’t become expensive, inconvenient ones.

How Do the Maintenance Checks Differ by Season?

HVAC companies will usually run maintenance checks that cover specific seasons. During a spring check, your HVAC company will most likely look at things like refrigerant pressure and levels, compressor functioning, condenser drains, and anything else related to keeping a house cool. A fall inspection will entail running maintenance on things like the heat exchanger, the burner, and the blower.

Two Ways to Keep the Spring Heat OUTSIDE of Your Home

Keeping the spring heat at bay with your heating and air conditioning services.

The spring heat can be no joke, especially when you’ve barely just left winter behind and haven’t prepped your home’s heating and air conditioning system for the warmer temps. Since the full-on summer heat hasn’t hit yet, you probably don’t want to blast your AC. However, it makes sense to start looking for more of a mix of options to keep the heat out of your home. The following tips can help.

Tip #1: Use a Programmable Thermostat

An energy-efficient, programmable thermostat can make all the difference in keeping the hot air out of your home. One popular option would be to program the thermostat to 75 degrees during the hours that you’re home and set it to 80 degrees while you’re away. Set it to as cool as you need it at night so that you sleep comfortably.

Tip #2: Make Adjustments to In-Home Accessories

There are several things you can do to ensure your home stays cool during the approaching spring heat:

  • Close your drapes and blinds during the day so you don’t stir up a greenhouse effect that causes heat to enter the room and stay there. Closed curtains block out a huge amount of heat.
  • Run appliances like your dishwasher and washer/dryers at night because they generate a lot of heat.
  • Use the oven and stove as little as possible so that they don’t heat up the house. Prep your meals in advance so that you simply have to reheat them in a microwave or instant pot.
