Getting your HVAC system repaired now ensures that you will have happy customers and employees this winter!

Winter is coming; is your commercial HVAC system ready? Doing a few simple maintenance chores can not only help your HVAC system be ready to take on the cold temperatures of winter but can also add on a few years of life to your system. Here are our tips for preparing your commercial HVAC system for a brutally cold winter.

Air Filters

How often do you change your air filters? Air filters are supposed to be changed out once every month. Making sure you are on a regular schedule for changing your air filters can ensure that you don’t end up with a clogged air filter.


It’s a good idea to test your thermostat now so that if there is a problem you won’t be left in the cold. Set your thermostat to your preferred winter temperature. If your commercial HVAC system never reaches this temperature or takes a long time to heat up, then you have a problem. Finding and fixing this problem now can help you to avoid cold and unhappy customers and employees this winter. If you don’t have one already, you may even want to consider installing a programmable thermostat. This allows you to pre-set temperatures for different times of day, which can maximize comfort and save you money.


While performing routine seasonal HVAC service, our technicians can also vacuum out any debris from your furnace blower compartment.

Air Vents

Locate your fresh-air-supply vents and return-air vents. Is there furniture or curtains blocking these vents? If so, be sure to make a clear area in front of the vents so that air can circulate through your commercial HVAC system properly.

Check for Unusual Behaviour

Does your HVAC system make strange noises when it is turned on? Does it leak excessively or get too hot? Or perhaps it emits a strange smell? If you notice any of these strange behaviors, contact your commercial HVAC installer ASAP! We can repair an ailing HVAC system and get it up and running just in time for winter. Don’t wait until the last minute to get strange behavior fixed; this can cause the problem to worsen, making the repair more expensive.
