As a business owner, you already have enough on your plate, and you don’t need to add a malfunctioning air conditioner to the mix. However, such problems can arise. In this blog, we review 5 common commercial AC problems, the signs that you’re dealing with a problem, and what to do.
Here are 5 common commercial AC problems
#1. Poor air quality
Everything from a gas leak to a dirty air filter can compromise the quality of the air blowing out your vents. That poor air can irritate allergies and potentially make your employees and customers sick. That’s lost revenue and productivity for your business.
Make sure your air filters are either cleaned or exchanged frequently. Learn more about indoor air quality, and the services offered by Allbritten.
#2. Lack of maintenance
A commercial AC unit that seems to be working just fine might have minor issues that can slowly build up to major problems.
By scheduling a regular tune-up for your building’s AC systems, you can help ensure that your employees and customers stay comfortable throughout the hot Fresno summer.
#3. Inconsistent airflow
Maybe it’s burning hot in one area of your building and freezing cold in another. In such instances, it might be that your building’s ductwork has cracks or leaks in it. Have a professional from Allbritten come out and take a look to see what the issue might be and what you can do to resolve the issue.
#4. Refrigerant leaks
Refrigerant is supposed to be inside the coils of your air conditioner. If you see that refrigerant has started to leak, or if it’s not as cool as it usually is even though you’ve got the thermostat at the same setting, you might have a coolant leak.
Have the issue taken care of by a pro before it leads to more problems. Contact us immediately for emergency service here in Fresno.
#5. Malfunctioning thermostat
Rather than blaming your air conditioning unit, the issue could be with your thermostat. While you might adjust the temperature to a specific setting, a malfunctioning thermostat might not be able to properly regulate the temperature in your building. This means that it can give your AC unit bad instructions.
If you suspect that your thermostat isn’t working, have one of the experts of Allbritten come out and inspect it.
