An important element of your business that contributes to your team’s productivity, health, and comfort is your HVAC system. Not to mention that if your HVAC system is out, customers are scarce.
The weather in Phoenix can be brutal, with triple-digit days that can wilt cacti and overheat cellphones and computers. That’s why keeping your business’s HVAC running reliably at peak efficiency should be a priority.
Why Regular HVAC Maintenance Is Important
Your air conditioning is essential to your day to day business operation. A well-maintained system keeps your customers and employees comfortable, prepared to work hard, and ready to buy! Regular commercial air conditioning maintenance can keep your HVAC system running reliably and efficiently, which can save you on energy costs.
AC maintenance in Phoenix is particularly important. The weather in Phoenix is brutal and can wreak havoc on your system. Regular maintenance can extend the productive working life of your HVAC system. It can also alert you to problems before they become critical and expensive issues.
The Benefits of Professional AC and Heating Maintenance
While you should always perform basic upkeep to your systems like checking filters and keeping the system clear of debris and leaves, professional maintenance is the key to system longevity. An expert technician will identify issues you may not see before they become expensive to repair.
It’s a smart move to establish a maintenance agreement and schedule with a local trusted professional. That makes it easy to keep your system operating properly. Having a technician come in the spring before the heat of summer, and the fall before the cold weather will ensure fewer unexpected repairs, and keep your system running reliably.
Timely maintenance can give you the peace of mind that during the hottest days of summer you won’t need to worry about malfunctions or repairs. Preventative maintenance means your system is ready as soon as the hot weather hits. It also means that even in the heat of summer, you’ll be saving money because your system will be running at peak efficiency all season long.
Signs That Your System Needs Maintenance
If you haven’t had your system serviced in some time, you may notice signs that it’s time to call a professional. Here are some warning signs to be aware of:
- Improper airflow – If you notice that it takes longer to cool or heat your space, or you have hot or cold “spots” it could indicate an airflow problem which can lead to a compressor or blower motor failure.
- Moisture – If you notice water where it shouldn’t be, you may have a problem. It can mean the drain tube is blocked or broken. While not a serious issue, failure to address it could lead to more severe problems like mold. If it happens to be a refrigerant leak, the problem is more dangerous, and a potential health hazard for your employees and customers. If you notice any leaks, call for service.
- Strange Sounds – Squealing, grating, or grinding sounds could signify an imminent failure. A squealing noise can mean a belt has slipped or broken. It can also indicate a metal component needs lubrication. If you hear a strange noise, call your HVAC professional.
By watching for the warning signs, you can often prevent a costly repair before your system breaks down. The best solution is to have your system regularly maintained so issues like these are addressed before it becomes critical.

What to Expect From Day & Night Air
Commercial air conditioning systems in Phoenix have a heavy burden during the summer. Proper maintenance starts with keeping the unit clean, inside and out. This means inspecting for debris that could be causing the unit to perform poorly or damaging the fans. In addition, your maintenance plan will include checking the refrigerant level of your HVAC unit to ensure that it is not being overworked due to low coolant levels. We can easily recharge any unit that has fallen short on coolant. Plus, we will always inspect for signs of leaks or other damage if we notice that the refrigerant is running low.
Aside from all of the normally wearable parts on your air conditioner, there are also some parts that should be inspected regularly for outside damage. For instance, electrical systems often get chewed up by rodents or other pests, which can be a hassle to repair. With your annual service plan, we will test all of the systems to make sure they are working properly, and perform a visual inspection for any obvious signs of damage.
When you hire Day & Night Air for your AC and heating maintenance in Phoenix, you can expect a thorough and complete inspection of your system. We will also provide you with a digital inspection report that is easy to read and provides you any needed next steps.
