Cool Systems for the Hot Season

by Erin Robert

A comfortable workplace environment is a must-have asset for businesses, which is why we recommend businesses strategically prepare their commercial HVAC systems for the hot summer season. 

During the beautiful winter and spring months in Arizona, it’s easy for business owners to neglect their HVAC systems, but that’s actually the recommended time to schedule a routine maintenance check and make any necessary repairs. 

The following are tips for preparing a commercial HVAC system for summer: 

  • Make sure filters are clean. It is recommended to change these quarterly. 
  • Have systems maintained to prevent big failures from happening. During this maintenance, the technician should go through all components and check voltage, amperage and temperature splits, and look for signs of wear and damaged parts. 
  • Get a programmable thermostat to change the temperature when away from the business to save on utility bills. It’s advisable to invest in a locking cover so no one can change the settings. 
  • Replace old, inefficient equipment with new, reliable equipment. Note that the average life of a system in Phoenix area is 10 to 15 years.
