If we had to guess the very last thing you need right now as a commercial property manager or a business owner, we’d say it’s a “broken down air conditioner.” While this is a major inconvenience in a home, it can be a full-on disaster in a commercial space, leading to the loss of business and worker’s comp claims if you have employees in the space.

You have enough to think about when you are running a business to worry about your air conditioner. This is why commercial HVAC maintenance is so vital–it helps you avoid 85% of the urgent repairs the system may ever need in its lifetime.

If you haven’t scheduled commercial AC maintenance in a year, it’s not too late! The only time it’s too late is if the system has broken down beyond repair and you actually need a replacement.

In the meantime, regardless of how diligent you are about maintenance, it’s a good idea that you and other building occupants know the designs of a commercial air conditioner in distress. Read on as we uncover what some of them are.

“Does My Air Conditioner Dehumidify My Air?”

If you’ve lived in Northwest Florida for even just one summer, then you get that humidity is a major concern when it comes to home comfort. Even the mildest of warm days to us can still feel sweltering when the relative humidity level is high enough. This is because the higher the moisture levels in the air, the easier it is for heat to get trapped in the body. Basically, too much humidity makes you feel hotter than it actually is, because you can’t sweat it out!

Humidity creates other problems too. It encourages the development of mold and mildew, as well as other bacteria, and can cause water damage to surfaces. But if you have an air conditioner in your home, you may think that this won’t be a problem–that the air conditioner is a natural dehumidifier.

While this is true–that your forced-air cooling system does have dehumidification properties–it needs a little help. Read on to learn more!

Unfortunately, there still isn’t an air conditioner on the market that will last forever. We think it’s pretty safe to say that will never be the case.

However, when you care for your air conditioner properly, it should be able to give you a good 10-15 years of useful service life. If your system is much newer than that and is starting to show signs of malfunction, it’s possible you need a repair. After all, air conditioners suffer from wear and tear just like any other large home appliance.

The problem with AC problems is really neglect. If you recognize that your air conditioner is struggling, the best thing you can do for it is contact a professional right away, rather than waiting for that problem to turn into a bigger emergency, like a complete system breakdown. So, what are the signs that your cooling system is, in fact, struggling? Read on to find out!

It’s the middle of winter… which doesn’t mean much for Florida residents. But let’s face it, the contrast in temperature definitely makes winter feel cold to us in comparison to summer!
