Winter is here and with it comes a slew of bad weather. Snow, ice, wind, and freezing temperatures can wreak havoc on your commercial HVAC system if you are not prepared. To make sure that your HVAC unit stays running strong this winter, there are a few things you can do to prepare. Here are some tips on how to keep your commercial HVAC running in the coldest of conditions.
Check Your Thermostat Settings: The first thing you should do to prepare your commercial HVAC system for winter storms is to check your thermostat settings. Make sure that they are set properly and that all of the connections are secure. This will ensure that your heating system is working efficiently and that it won’t be damaged by extreme cold temperatures or high winds. If you have any questions about setting up your thermostat correctly, contact your Level One HVAC technician for assistance.
Consider Installing a Generator: If you live in an area where winter storms are frequent or severe, it may be worth investing in a generator as an added layer of protection for your commercial HVAC system. Generators provide an extra source of power during times when electricity outages occur due to bad weather or other circumstances beyond your control. Generators also offer the added benefit of keeping the air inside your building warm when temperatures outside drop dramatically.
Stay Warm Inside: Finally, one of the best ways to protect your commercial HVAC from winter storms is simply to stay warm inside. Make sure that windows and doors are closed tightly when temperatures start to drop outside so that no cold air enters into the building’s interior space. Additionally, consider adding insulation around windows and doors if needed so that cold air cannot enter through any cracks or gaps in the frame or wall material.
Winter storms can take a toll on even the most well-prepared commercial HVAC systems if owners fail to properly plan ahead for them – but it doesn’t have to be this way! By following these simple tips on how to prepare for winter storms early on, property managers and building owners can rest assured knowing their investments in their commercial HVAC systems will remain safe and sound even in the worst conditions Mother Nature throws at them this season!
