Common Problems with Commercial Heating Systems

Monday, November 17th, 2014

In an area like New Haven, you know how important commercial heating is to keeping your customers comfortable. They don’t want to walk into your business and have it feel like a freezer. Moreover, you and your employees probably don’t want to work in that environment either. So it’s a big deal when your commercial heating system stops working right. In order to help prevent costly repairs, it pays to know some common issues with your commercial heating system. Let’s examine some of the most common problems.

Icing Over

As most commercial heating systems are heat pumps, icing over becomes a big issue. A heat pump relies on its outdoor unit to provide thermal energy with which to warm the air. This outdoor unit contains an evaporator coil, which evaporates refrigerant to draw heat into it. There are two side effects to this kind of heat siphoning. The first is that the air temperature around the unit drops. The second is that condensation forms on the unit. The low temperature causes the condensation to freeze, forming ice on the heat pump. Normally, this isn’t a problem, as heat pumps have a defrost cycle that allows them to melt any ice that forms on the unit. If that function stops working, however, the entire unit can ice over and stop circulating heat. If your heating system is circulating cold air instead of warm, you might want to check the outdoor unit and see if it’s got ice on it.

Refrigerant Leaks

Refrigerant is the liquid responsible for transporting thermal energy throughout the heating system. There is a set level of refrigerant included in the heating system during installation, which is recycled during normal operation. If a leak develops in the refrigerant line for whatever reason, it can drain the refrigerant from the system. When that happens, the heater will lose its ability to circulate heat over time.

If your heating system is acting up, call Celco Heating and Air Conditioning. We can meet all of your commercial heating repair needs. Our technicians cover the entire New Haven area.

When Is the Best Time to Schedule Commercial HVAC Maintenance?

Monday, September 15th, 2014

The HVAC system that provides a comfortable environment for your business space needs to have regular maintenance from commercial specialists. Without regular inspections and tune-ups, a commercial system will start to work inefficiently (losing, on average, 5%–10% of its energy efficiency each year), experience an increase in malfunctions that will require repair work, and have a shorter lifespan leading to early replacement. Maintenance is key to protecting the comfort for your business as well as avoiding unnecessary expenses.

Celco Heating and Air Conditioning has provided commercial HVAC maintenance in Stamford, CT for many years. We are familiar with the specific demands of commercial systems, and will give your business’ heating and cooling system the rigorous inspection work necessary to keep it running to the best of its ability.

When you should schedule commercial HVAC maintenance

The recommended scheduling for maintenance check-ups is twice annually, during the “pre-season.” You should have the first maintenance visit during the spring to prepare the HVAC system for air conditioning in the summer. The second maintenance visit should come in the fall, to get the system ready for heating through the winter. Aside from giving the HVAC system plenty of time before the extreme weather hits and giving yourself a buffer for arranging any repair work that may be necessary, these times are ideal because the work calendars for technicians are less crowded. You will have an easier time arranging for the maintenance session during the spring and fall when HVAC professionals are not busy on emergency calls.

However, it is never too late to have an inspection and tune-up for your commercial HVAC system if you have missed the pre-season slot. It is far worse to skip a year than to schedule late-season maintenance. Technicians can always locate any potential issues and help you arrange for the necessary repairs, as well as find ways to reduce the stress on the system. If you are behind on your maintenance visits, call professionals right away to get started again.
