Legal agreements for the rental of commercial buildings differ quite a bit from residential rentals. Depending on the agreement, the tenant may be responsible for maintenance and replacement of a system. Other agreements will hold the landlord responsible for the heating & air system. Either way, it’s in the interest of the responsible party to keep things running smoothly.
The Importance of Regular Maintenance
Regular or preventive maintenance can go a long way in keeping a heating system in Victorville, or an air conditioning system in San Bernardino running smoothly. Having a trained technician check for issues like leaking refrigerant can prevent the building from getting too hot and prevent the condenser from over working or burning out. It is a lot less expensive to have a system checked, cleaned and lubricated than to replace it.
The thermostat plays a major role in the proper functioning of the system.
There are also simple solutions if the building has temperature issues. The thermostat plays a major role in the proper functioning of the system. Having a thermostat that works properly and that is set correctly goes a long way. With today’s programmable thermostats, there isn’t an excuse for having the indoor temperature off. The flow of air in the building can also affect the temperature in certain areas. Having a technician check the air flow through the ducts and adjust accordingly is another simple fix.
The Benefits of Improving Air Quality
Indoor air quality is frequently an issue in commercial buildings. The first step to solving an air quality issue is to find the source of the problem. Dust is a common culprit. Keeping filters clean and eliminating extra dust is a start. If the problem is severe, upgrading the filter system or adding a ventilation system may be the answer. Moisture can also be an issue. If the heated air in the building is too dry, a humidifier may be the solution.
Reducing the use of harsh chemicals and pesticides in the building can help.
