Common Commercial AC Issues

If you’re experiencing issues with your commercial AC system, one of the following problems could be the cause:

  • Damaged rooftop units – Most commercial AC units are installed on the roof of the building. The rooftop AC system can sustain damage when severe weather, high winds, or scorching summer temperatures occur. Changes in airflow or temperature could indicate that the unit’s internal cabinet is damaged. AC systems need to be inspected regularly by an HVAC tech to look for damage or debris.
  • Inconsistent air conditioning – Have your employees, tenants, or customers complained that the air temperatures are inconsistent? A common complaint is that there are hot or cold spots. There may be a leak in the ductwork, or the thermostat may not be functioning correctly. You may need to schedule maintenance or ac repair services.
  • Ventilation problems – Ventilation problems can cause your commercial HVAC system to overheat or malfunction during summer use. For instance, the vents may not have been adequately installed, or they could be blocked by dirt and debris. You can handle most ventilation problems with an inspection of the unit by a professional HVAC technician.
  • Clogged drain lines – When the commercial AC system is in use, it generates moisture that moves through the drain lines. When the lines become clogged, the system stops working correctly. It’s essential to inspect the drain lines and clear any debris.
  • A blown fuse – If your commercial AC system suddenly shuts off, it could be overheated. You should check your circuit breaker for a blown fuse.
  • A system that is too small or too large – Commercial AC systems are designed to cool specific spaces based on size. Capacity problems can result from your AC unit having excess or insufficient capacity for your building. If you’re experiencing capacity problems due to your system’s size, upgrading or downgrading to meet capacity needs is recommended.

There are other issues that occur during the hot summer months that we can inspect and then repair or provide maintenance for the problem. Regular maintenance visits can prevent these issues from ever beginning.
