Your commercial property may need a lot of repairs and maintenance over the years so it’s easy to let some things fall by the wayside. You or your maintenance crew may not always notice problems with the heating system as they are not always so visible to the untrained eye. Sometimes, a heater can suffer from repair needs but still give off enough heating to placate all of the people in your commercial building. But when heating capacity is reduced even slightly, it’s usually due to a broken component that may really wear on the efficiency of your unit, costing you more money to run and forcing other parts to work harder.
Your commercial heating system requires immediate repairs as soon as a problem is detected in order to prevent premature failure due to worn down parts. But you can help to prevent some of the following common repairs by scheduling maintenance every year with a trained technician for a thorough inspection of your unit.
- Thermostat Repairs: Business owners are often surprised to learn that the thermostat may actually be responsible for their heating problems. This could be an easy fix for a trained expert, but letting it go on for too long can cause a compressor or a motor to wear out quickly.
- Fan Problems: If you notice uneven or poor heating ability from your commercial heating system, it could be due to a faulty fan or fan motor in your forced-air heating system. Alternatively, if your commercial property has a radiant heating system that uses circulatory pumps to distribute hot water to a building, uneven or inadequate heating could be due to a broken pump, among other problems.
- Duct Leaks: Finally, duct leaks can cause your commercial heating system to run into any number of repair needs as parts diminish while attempting to heat your home, even though much of the air never makes it to the living space.
Never ignore a problem with your commercial heating season, even if you continue to feel heat on your property. Any problem has the potential to develop into something worse. A small noise can indicate a leak that leads to severe energy loss and failing parts, and even a lose screw can cause a large unit to struggle.
