With winter approaching, many office managers may be thinking about turning off their comfort cooling systems. However, it is vital to keep air conditioning equipment in good working order throughout the year, particularly during the winter. You can ensure that your HVAC system will be ready for use again in the spring by taking precautions to safeguard it.
Follow this handy checklist to ensure that you are winter-ready.
- Maintain your filters
Many businesses make the mistake of failing to clean and maintain their filters throughout the winter months. Even if you don’t use your air conditioner, the filters should be cleaned every three months.
- Clear the condensate drains
Your air conditioner heat pump requires routine maintenance, or else the condensate drains can rapidly get blocked. Condensate drains that are well-maintained are critical for reducing humidity throughout an air-conditioned workplace. Condensate drains can become blocked and cause water leaks if they are not cleaned on a regular basis.
- Remove any dirt and debris
Cold-weather debris can be a major concern for buildings that use outside condensers. The most common culprits are falling autumn leaves, making outdoor upkeep an essential part of winter preparations. Trim any branches and leaves, and remove any seasonal dirt and debris.
