Commercial HVAC Maintenance Checklist

Preventative HVAC maintenance is something that too often takes a low priority in a business’s budget. Unfortunately, most companies don’t realize how much money they are wasting by sitting back and waiting for things to go wrong instead of investing in a commercial HVAC service plan.

You don’t have to take our word for it that relying on reactive measures will increase the cost of your heating and cooling operations. According to a study done by the New Building Institute, not keeping up with routine, proactive maintenance can increase a company’s energy use by as much as 60 percent per year.

Check Commercial HVAC Equipment Twice a Year

Scheduling preventative HVAC maintenance in Denver will reduce your energy use significantly and help you catch minor problems before they lead to expensive repairs. In most cases, we recommend only two visits per year — once in the spring and once in the fall. By doing this, we can catch any issues before you get into peak usage months in the summer and winter.

Here’s a brief summary of the items that are checked in a routine service visit to a commercial property. The outdoor HVAC checklists differ from indoor HVAC checklists.

On outdoor units, we’ll check:

  • Refrigerant level
  • Fan motor and blades
  • Compressor and tubing
  • Oil and cabinet
  • Base pan drain opening
  • Control box, wiring and connections

Indoor unit inspections include:

  • Ductwork
  • Air filters
  • Fan belt
  • Blower assembly
  • Combustion blower housing
  • Condensate drain line, drain pain, and evaporator coil
  • Ignition system and safety controls
  • Heat exchanger or heating elements
  • Burner assembly
  • Flue system
  • Control box, wiring and connections

We will watch your HVAC equipment in action so we can complete an in-depth system operation report that includes recommended measures for improvement.

Avoiding costly emergency calls and repairs, and maintaining peak efficiency of your HVAC equipment should be a top priority. To save money and earn peace of mind, call 720-365-1187 and schedule a commercial HVAC service in Denver this fall.
