As the official end of summer approaches and we get ready for temperatures to hopefully start cooling down soon, the last thing you need is for your commercial air conditioning in Oradell, NJ to break down when you still need it to keep your space comfortable.
You have enough to worry about without being concerned with losing business due to an HVAC problem that could turn away potential customers or guests. However, if you neglect end-of-season repair needs, you may certainly find yourself with a broken-down system.
The good news is, our team can help if you do find yourself in need of sudden commercial AC repairs. In the meantime, we’d like to share some signs that you should look out for, and alert your building’s employees to watch out for as well. If you notice any of these indicators, please give us a call right away!
Lukewarm Air Coming from the Vents
There are a number of reasons you can come across this problem with a commercial air conditioner. But one this is for sure, warm air coming out of your vents while your air conditioning is running is never a good sign.
In the absence of a thermostat malfunction, the problem may be related to something serious like a refrigerant leak or damaged ductwork, or it could be something minor like a clogged air filter. Do be sure to check the air filter if you know where it’s located and how to check it. But if you’ve ruled that out, it’s time to give us a call.
A Sudden Increase in Energy Costs
Not all business owners or commercial building managers look at every single overhead cost from month to month. Whoever does manage your utility bills, however, should be keeping a close eye on them.
Are your cooling bills significantly higher than they were this time last year? If the weather doesn’t account for this contrast and there’s not a higher demand for your air conditioning system, then there is a good possibility that your AC system simply isn’t performing as efficiently or effectively as it once did and is in need of repair—possibly even replacement.
Your Building’s Occupants Detect a Burning Odor
This is a sign that should never be ignored. First off, depending on the nature of your commercial building, this might point to a number of different issues—an electrical problem, an overheating piece of office equipment, or—you guessed it—a problem with your air conditioner like a failing and overheating component.
Even if the burning odor isn’t caused by your HVAC system, we can give you some direction in order to call in the right service professionals to ensure your buildings safety. On that note, if you notice a significantly strong and persistent burning smell, please call your local fire department.
