As the owner a commercial building, there is a lot to keep track of. The maintenance schedule for a commercial building can be exhausting. It is not even executing the plan; it is making the checklist in the first place and hiring the right technician. Focus in on your commercial HVAC Jacksonville FL system. What do you need to do to help that system run efficiently through the summer months? Where will you get the most value when it comes to work that needs to be done on the unit and its various components? Our team at J&W Heating and Air is here to help!
Create a Checklist
The starting point of the creation of a checklist is knowledge of your commercial HVAC Jacksonville FL system. A quick consultation with us at J&W Heating and Air is going to shed a lot of light on what needs to be done, and what would just be nice if it were done. Some of the questions that we are going to ask will revolve around the age of the system, what the current state of the system is? Have you had any repairs that needed to be done to the system in the last handful of years? How is the system performing from an energy efficiency standpoint?
The more information that you have, the easier it is going to be to get that checklist together and make it as complete as possible.
Change Out the Filter
The first thing that you want to have on your commercial HVAC Jacksonville FL checklist for the summer is to change the filter. During those hot months in the Southeast, you want to change out the filter every few months. When you do this, you are going to be setting the system up for success, allowing air to flow freely through it and cool your home efficiently.
Changing the filter is one of the easiest tasks that can be done, but it is also the one that is most commonly forgotten about. Take the time to switch out that filter and cross it off of your checklist periodically.
The tune-up of your commercial HVAC Jacksonville FL system should be done before the start of the busy season for the unit, that being the summer. Our team of professionals at J&W Heating and Air stresses the importance of scheduling this early. It should be one of the top three items on your checklist, so get it on our calendar so that we can get out there and help you with it before it gets too hectic with repairs and such as the summer gets deeper.
Cleaning Out the Air Duct
The air ducts are what you are relying on to transfer all of the air from the unit, and into the commercial space. Air duct cleaning is pivotal to ensure that you have a quality air flow for the system and also so that you can keep the air quality as high as possible. When your get air duct cleaning is done, you’re going to be fighting bacteria getting into the air, helping the system run more efficiently, battling mold growth, among other benefits.
Once you’ve implemented an HVAC system checklist, you need to check out a reputable technician for servicing your commercial HVAC system. Here’s what you need to look for:
Years of Experience Under Their Belt
The first thing that you want to look for when seeking out a commercial HVAC Jacksonville FL is years of experience. You probably do not want to bring in a technician that is just doing his first few jobs of his or her career. Chances are the technician is not going to have been exposed to all of the variables that could come up as part of whatever work needs to be done. You want someone that is very experienced, that has a resume of working on commercial HVAC systems for a decade or more. This should always be the starting point for your search.
Prioritized Customer Service
Customer service excellence is also something that you are going to want to make sure is executed by the technician that you hire. When you call on the commercial HVAC Jacksonville FL technician, do they answer the phone? Do you get to talk to a live person when you reach out to them? Are they willing to provide you with advice and guidance right out of the gate? These are the things that are going to showcase customer service excellence.
What are some of the reviews that are posted online about the technician that you are thinking about hiring? Google reviews are a powerful thing as they are testimonials from individuals that have hired the company you are thinking about in the past. Read these reviews as they are going to likely be indicative of the work that you can also expect to have done on your home and your central air conditioning system. If you are starting to read some bad reviews, this could be a sign that you want to look elsewhere in your search.
What is the reputation that the technician has in the market you exist? Are they known as a technician that is trusted, that is reliable? When your friends and colleagues call on this particular technician, what was their experience like? The more you are aware of their reputation, the clearer of a picture you will have as to what you can expect your experience to be.
The checklist for the maintenance of your commercial HVAC Jacksonville FL is not all that complicated to compile. Based on the age and history of your system, more items may be recommended, but starting with a tune-up, filter change, and air duct cleaning are certainly going to be the top three in most cases. Look for a technician that’ll help implement your checklist and work hard to help maintain your HVAC system this summer. Call us at J&W Heating and Air to get on our schedule today!
