Change Your Filters
Depending on the size of your building, and the design of your HVAC system,
you should replace your filters every month as part of regular HVAC maintenance.
However, it is especially important to put in new filters during the fall.
This is because people tend to close the doors and windows when it gets
cold, preventing fresh air from coming in.
Tune-Up Your Furnace
Here in the Inland Empire, we rarely have an opportunity to fire up the
furnace during the spring and summer months. To prevent issues when it
gets cold out, you should make sure to have a furnace maintenance checkup
performed. Our Riverside commercial HVAC experts
can inspect all parts of your furnace, and can make sure that everything is clean and fully-functional!
Clean Your Ductwork
For the best performance out of your commercial HVAC system, and to keep
your air as clean as possible, it’s crucial to
regularly clean your ducts. In a comprehensive duct inspection and cleaning, our Riverside commercial
HVAC team can make thoroughly clean your ducts, and can also check for
any damaged areas or holes which would allow heat to escape.
Make Sure Leaks are Sealed
Air leaks can ruin the efficiency of even the highest-quality HVAC system.
As your building ages, seals around windows and doors can begin to break
down crack, and start letting cold air in. Sealing these leaks is a relatively
inexpensive way to make your commercial HVAC unit more efficient, and
to make your building more comfortable.
