It may be tempting to have your facility staff handle changing filters and other basic maintenance, but your commercial space needs regular HVAC inspections. Every type of business has different needs, such as a corporate office buildings, warehouses, data centers, hospitals, or assisted living facilities, and that needs to be taken into account with HVAC inspections. In servicing everything from modest-sized office complexes to large commercial workspaces, each building’s needs will vary and must be addressed specifically.
When Businesses Reopen You’ll be Prepared
If your company has partially or completely switched to remote work due to COVID-19, an HVAC inspection is more important than ever. Your data center and servers are working harder than ever so keeping them cool is essential. An HVAC inspection will help ensure continued, efficient service. It will also alert you to any pending problems so they can be addressed without any interruption of service..
If you’re making plans to reopen, taking care of the spring inspection now is essential. If your building or facility does need service or an upgrade, you can have it done before reopening to minimize any disruption. It also ensures that you have fresh air filters installed for that reopening.
How Long Does an HVAC Inspection Take?
A commercial facility’s HVAC inspection is very involved. The amount of time it takes will depend on all of your available units that require inspection. A full HVAC system inspection will include:
- AC Unit Inspection
- Boiler or Furnace Inspection
- Thermostat Inspection
- Air Duct Inspection
- Post HVAC Installation Inspection
Inspection can include other aspects as well, such as indoor air quality for your office or commercial space. The time frame of a HVAC inspection can be further detailed in an inspection quote.
How Often Should HVAC Be Inspected?
The common thought is that you need to have inspections at least twice a year; heating systems in the fall and cooling systems in the spring. While that may be true for some smaller spaces, your commercial workspace can benefit from further maintenance because of the increased needs and usage of commercial operations. Your facility is likely running climate control units often which requires more attention to making sure they’re running smoothly and efficiently.
Your facility manager should work with your maintenance company to determine what kind of inspection schedule is right for you. Additionally, you’ll want to take advantage of preventive maintenance measures to avoid problems that could affect your daily operations.
