Common Problems With HVAC
HVAC systems are the one thing we depend on in the south to escape the scorching heat. It is important to have your system inspected and cleaned on a re-occurring basis to ensure you catch any issues before they cause disaster in your place of business. One of the most common types of problems is the drain line getting clogged up with debris and causing water to affect areas surrounding the HVAC unit itself. Check your drain line frequently to ensure there is no back up in the drain line.
The second problem is found in the duct work itself. It is not uncommon for holes to be notched in the duct work of an HVAC system, whether it's from animals, or just wear and tear over time. Holes in the duct work can cause efficiency issues and affect the way your system runs.
Another problem is the HVAC system is putting out too much moisture. This could be from a lack of freon or, as mentioned previously, holes in the duct work. a typically HVAC will produce humidity levels of between 45-55% humidity. If level's start to rise and the atmosphere in the facility begins to portray humidity levels of more than 60%, you begin to run the risk of microbial activity.
