How To Keep a Facility Cool and Comfortable in Summer Through Routine Maintenance

As the summer heat intensifies, it becomes essential to have a reliable and efficient HVAC system that can keep your building cool and comfortable. However, many business owners and facility operators overlook the significance of regular maintenance for their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Neglecting proper HVAC maintenance can lead to various issues, including decreased energy efficiency, costly repairs, and even health concerns.

Luckily, we are here to help! In this article, we will explore the importance of proper HVAC maintenance during the summer and highlight the benefits of partnering with a facility maintenance expert like MasterCorp!

Why is HVAC Maintenance Important in The Summer?

Summer is a time for rest and relaxation, but that doesn’t mean you should relax your commercial facility’s HVAC maintenance schedule! Regular HVAC maintenance is especially important in the summer. As outdoor temperatures go up, HVAC systems can overheat, short out, or become completely defunct from overuse or underuse.

To avoid costly repairs and replacements, it would benefit building owners and managers to know when and where maintenance is needed!

What Facilities are the Most Overlooked?

The most commonly overlooked buildings for HVAC maintenance are educational facilities. Unlike commercial businesses, retail stores, industrial warehouses, or medical facilities, schools don’t operate year-round. They close for the summer, and unless proper maintenance is continued, issues could arise at the start of the school year.

Most HVAC units for schools are on the roof, and when exposed to the sun for prolonged periods of time without cleaning or cooling, they can short out once they are turned on again. This is not only inconvenient and costly, but it is also a hazard to your students and staff.

To prevent disasters like shortages from happening, MasterCorp’s team of experts has put together a summer facility maintenance checklist to keep your building running at optimal efficiency throughout the year!

Benefits of Partnering with MasterCorp

  • Prolonged System Lifespan: Neglecting maintenance on your HVAC systems can significantly shorten the lifespan of the unit. By investing in regular maintenance, you can extend the life of your HVAC system. MasterCorp’s trained technicians can identify and address minor issues before they turn into major problems that could potentially damage the entire system. Routine maintenance, including lubricating moving parts and inspecting electrical connections, ensures that your HVAC system operates smoothly for years to come.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: During the summer months, we spend more time indoors with windows and doors tightly sealed to keep the heat out. This means that the air we breathe inside our homes is continually recirculated by the HVAC system. If the system is not properly maintained, it can contribute to poor indoor air quality. Dirty filters and ductwork can accumulate dust, allergens, and even mold, leading to respiratory issues and allergies. MasterCorp’s regular HVAC maintenance plan includes cleaning ducts, replacing filters, and checking for any signs of microbial growth, ensuring cleaner and healthier indoor air.
  • Cost Savings on Repairs: One of the most significant benefits of regular HVAC maintenance is avoiding costly repairs. Neglected systems are more prone to breakdowns, especially during periods of peak usage, such as the scorching summer days. Minor issues, if left unattended, can escalate into major problems, requiring expensive repairs or even a complete system replacement. By partnering with MasterCorp to handle your routine maintenance, you can catch and address problems early on, saving you from unexpected repair costs and inconvenience.
