7 Signs Your Commercial AC System Might Need Repair




Maintaining a commercial HVAC system is vital to employee satisfaction within commercial buildings and crucial for tenant retention for property managers and building owners. At Energo, we work hard to make sure your building’s HVAC equipment is operating correctly and efficiently by providing expert maintenance repairs and installation services.


Below are 7 signs that your commercial air conditioning system might need repair or replacement.


  1. Uneven cooling: If some areas of your building are cold while others are sweltering, your system isn’t functioning efficiently. This could be due to clogged ducts, malfunctioning thermostats, or a refrigerant leak.


  1. Strange noises: Your AC system shouldn’t produce loud or unusual noises. Grinding, screeching, or clanging sounds indicate component wear and tear.


  1. Short cycling: If your AC unit frequently turns on and off for short periods of time, it’s not operating properly and could be overworked.


  1. Damaged rooftop units: Most commercial AC units are installed on the roof of your building, which exposes it to extreme weather conditions. Your rooftop unit should be inspected by Energo regularly to assess any possible damage that could be affecting your cooling system.


  1. Decreased air quality: A properly functioning AC system removes moisture from the air, and built-in air filters keep out dust, pollen, and other allergens.


  1. Increased energy bills: A significant rise in your energy bills could indicate your AC system is working overtime to compensate for inefficiencies.


  1. Foul smells: A musty smell coming from your vents could be a sign of mold growth or mildew buildup within the system.
