A comfortable working environment can make employees more productive. A pleasant place to be is often essential for a business to retain its customers. Our Jacksonville commercial HVAC technicians want to help your business do that efficiently. 

When to Replace Your Commercial HVAC Unit

There are several signs that indicate your commercial HVAC system may be in need of repair, and in some cases, it will be more cost-effective to just move forward with replacement. Keep an eye out for indicators like these: 

  • Age: Most HVAC systems have an average lifespan of 15 to 20 years. If your HVAC system is in this age range and has other problems, there’s a good chance its life has run its course.
  • Sudden stoppages: Common causes of sudden stops include thermostat malfunctions, electrical problems, motor failures, or refrigerant leaks. 
  • Strange noises: These issues can range from loose or damaged components to motor or fan belt failures.
  • Bad air: If you notice an increase in dust, allergens, or unpleasant odors, it could indicate that the system's filters are clogged or that there is mold or microbial growth in the system.
  • Hot and cold spots: Inconsistent temperature distribution can be caused by airflow issues, faulty thermostats, or ductwork problems. 
  • Increasing energy costs: Aging equipment, dirty filters, refrigerant leaks, or malfunctioning components can all contribute to higher energy consumption.

Factors to Consider in a Commercial HVAC Unit

As business owners ourselves, we know how many moving parts are often involved in a decision. The factors to consider in deciding on your commercial HVAC unit are no different. Here are just a few of the issues to take into account: 

The Capacity of the HVAC System

Capacity refers to the system's ability to provide the necessary amount of airflow to adequately heat or cool your space. A system must be able to produce enough heated or cooled air to effectively control the climate throughout your building. Undersized units will struggle to maintain comfortable temperatures, leading to discomfort for occupants, decreased productivity, and potential equipment damage. Oversized units may cycle on and off frequently, resulting in inefficient operation, higher energy bills, and premature wear and tear.  

Location of the HVAC System

Proper placement of the unit can impact its performance and longevity. Ideally, the system should be installed where it can be easily accessed for maintenance and repairs. It should also be strategically positioned in a space that matches its capacity. Factors such as proximity to electrical connections, access to outdoor ventilation, and noise considerations should also be taken into account. By selecting an optimal location, businesses can enhance the efficiency and lifespan of their HVAC system while minimizing any potential disruptions to daily operations.

Energy Efficiency of the HVAC System 

Energy-efficient systems may be able to significantly reduce utility costs and minimize the environmental impact of your commercial space. Look for units with a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating for cooling and a strong Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating for heating. These ratings indicate the system's ability to convert energy into cooling or heating output efficiently. Furthermore, features like programmable thermostats, variable speed motors, and advanced control systems can further enhance energy efficiency. The needs of every business will be different, and our Jacksonville HVAC commercial professionals will walk through all your options with you. 

The Right Temperature for Any Season

Getting the right temperature in our home region isn’t easy. The Jacksonville commercial HVAC unit often has to work extra hard on the thickest, most humid days of summer. Even though our winter temperatures are still moderate, we still have to find the right way to keep the building comfortable while not running up high monthly costs. The right HVAC unit is meant to give you the right temperature—and do it efficiently. That’s what Tropic Aire will aim to give you.
