5 Signs Your Commercial Heating Needs Repairs

 

HVAC service When you run a business or organization, your heating system is probably the last thing you worry about. However, there’s always the possibility that something can go wrong and that your system will be in need of a repair. Take a minute and observe. If you see or hear any of the following things, your system is probably due for a repair.

Leaking

If your business uses a boiler, it means that your heating system uses water to heat the area. You may find small spots of water every once in awhile, but if you experience leaking (which could include a wet ceiling, dripping noises, or water around your radiator or baseboard), call our heating experts right away.

Odd Noises

Commercial heating systems tend to make a lot of noise, but there are some noises that simply aren’t normal. If you hear things like grinding or “boom”ing, you could have a problem with your air handler motor bearings or a burner may be misfiring. Other noises include hissing and gurgling. If you hear any of these noises, it’s a good idea to contact us.

Low/No Heat

If the rooms in your building simply aren’t warming up like they should, your heating system could be experiencing a variety of problems, including burner issues, piping system issues, air duct issues, and more. Our experts will take a look at your system and determine what’s causing the under-par performance.

Higher Heating Bills

If the weather is colder than usual, then you can definitely expect a higher heating bill, but if the bill gives you sticker shock or it’s at a high price even when the weather is warmer, something may be wrong. It’s most likely an issue of wear and tear – as the years go by, the parts that make up a heating system slowly start to wear down and can decrease the efficiency of the system. Let us figure out what the problem is and fix it for you.

Short Cycles

While it’s normal for commercial heating systems to run more when the temperature drops, short cycles could indicate there’s an underlying issue. If you notice your system turns itself on and off over and over throughout the day, it could be overheating. When a system overheats, it activates a “shut-off” switch, and if it overheats every time it turns on, you’ll hear it turn off fairly quickly.
