Commercial Air Conditioning
Having a commercial air conditioning system that is in proper working order is essential to any business as it not only keeps employees and customers cool, it is also responsible for keeping the vital computer and industrial equipment cool and in proper working order. When it comes to air conditioning, many individuals are under the impression that a commercial air conditioning unit produces and distribute cold air when they remove heat energy and relocate it outside. At High Desert Heating we understand how important your commercial air conditioning is to the success of your business and we employ highly trained and experienced technicians that can diagnose and fix any commercial air conditioning problem you may have, as well as perform routine maintenance to make sure the system continues to operate safely and efficiently.
What is a Heat Pump?
An essential part of any commercial air conditioning system is the heat pump. The heat pump is responsible for removing the heat energy inside the business, making the air cooler. The heat pump is like an air conditioner with one exception, it can either remove heat energy to cool the building, or it can absorb heat energy and warm the building. A commercial heat pump consists of two parts; the first is an indoor unit that distributes the air throughout the building and the second is an outdoor unit that absorbs and releases heat energy as it travels between the two units.
What is Heat Pump Service?
The key to keeping your commercial air conditioning system functioning at its best is to have it routinely inspected and serviced, especially the heat pump. If dust, dirt, and debris can accumulate in the heat pump, it can not only affect how efficiently it works, but it can also cause damage to the unit causing the business to incur expensive repair costs. The best way to maintain your heat pump is to have a professional come and provide routine heat pump service. Listed below are the steps involved in adequately servicing a heat pump:
- Inspection- The first step is to examine the heat pump to make sure there are no leaks, electrical issues, damaged or broken parts, or if there are excess dirt and debris.
- Check Refrigerant- The technician will check the refrigerant level to make sure it has the proper amount and that there are no leaks.
- Clean- The technician will clean the heat pump to ensure it is working at optimal levels. If dirt and debris that can build up in the unit will not only cause damage to the unit, it can also become a potential fire hazard.
- Lubricate- The heat pump has many moving parts, and if they are not appropriately lubricated, they will become worn and broken, leading to expensive replacement costs. The technician will inspect and properly lubricate all parts to keep the heat pump functioning properly.
- Calibrate Thermostat- The technician will check to make sure the thermostat is calibrated correctly to make sure it is registering the proper temperature and not causing the unit to run unnecessarily resulting in extra heating costs and putting unnecessary wear and tear on the unit.
