Commercial air conditioners are a technological marvel as these units are powerful enough to regulate the ambient temperature of gigantic structures like malls, stadiums, and concert halls. However, commercial air conditioners are still air conditioners at their very essence. As such, even the sturdiest commercial air conditioners will start to break down at one point.
Fortunately, commercial air conditioners exhibit several subtle warning signs once they near the end of their useful life. With that in mind, be sure to keep an eye out for the following signs:
High Energy Bills
As a commercial air conditioner nears the end, it has to start using more energy to maintain the desired temperature, resulting in higher energy bills. Obviously, your energy bills are much larger than the bill of a residential unit, but you should keep an eye out for constant increases in your energy bill.
In an effort to save money, you might try to have your unit repaired by a professional HVAC technician. All this really does is buy time. Once your air conditioning unit starts breaking down every so often, it is probably time to have the unit replaced.
If your commercial air conditioner is exhibiting the signs mentioned above, do not hesitate to call a commercial HVAC contractor for an estimate for a new unit. The sooner you call, the faster your customers will stop complaining about the building being warm.
