What to Expect During an HVAC Inspection
Getting a heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system inspection can help improve your system’s efficiency by finding any trouble spots. Once those problems have been found, then you can go about repairing them. For commercial buildings, it is best to have an inspection on a biannual basis to keep your system running smoothly and upgraded at all times. Here is what goes on during an HVAC inspection.
Checks on Safety
There are many moving parts to an HVAC system, and also a lot of heat. Gas-powered units are susceptible to fire and explosion if they are not maintained and checked properly. The technician can make sure that everything is clean and free of safety hazards. They will also inspect the already existing safety measures to make sure they are functioning properly.
Checks on Efficiency
Cleanliness will also help with the efficiency of the system, so the technician will make sure that the vents and ducts are clear of debris. Dirt and dust will also harm the air quality of a building, so they will make sure that there is not too much buildup. In some cases the inspector can handle the cleaning right away, but if the job is too big you may have to schedule a longer appointment.
Output Of Your System
The technician will also check to make sure that the system is heating or cooling the building appropriately. There is a lot that goes into making a system as efficient as possible. The components must be in good condition, well-lubricated, and installed correctly. Also, the size of the unit must be appropriate for the size of the building. If the system is not as efficient as possible, then you will notice it by the discomfort you will feel every day. You will either be too hot or cold, or you will have to turn the thermostat higher to reach the same temperature that it was at before.
No matter how new your system is, you must have it inspected regularly to make sure that it is running at its peak effectiveness. These inspections will help you keep on top of any issues that may arise to compromise the efficiency and safety of your HVAC system.
