When Is It Time to Replace Your Commercial Air Conditioning System?

Monday, April 6th, 2015

It is difficult to run a business without a proper AC system in place to keep the people on your commercial property as comfortable as possible in the summer months. But when the weather outside is still chilly, it’s difficult to think about the state of your commercial air conditioning system. Replace your system as early on as possible, particularly if you experience any of the following problems on your property.

  • Frequent Repairs – Do you find that your unit needs repairs far too frequently? Are you sick of replacing a new component every time a technician visits your business? It may be time for an upgrade. The components of an air conditioner work best when every part inside is designed to work together. So when you put a newer part on an older unit, it still cannot operate efficiently and that newer part may simply wear out faster than it should. After a number of years, replacing the entire system is simply a better choice.
  • Short Cycling – Does your unit turn on frequently only to turn off very shortly afterwards? This is known as short cycling, and it affects systems with faulty compressors or units that are too large for the space they cool. With packaged rooftop air conditioning units, you may only need to have a technician remove a module to correct a sizing issue. In other cases, however, replacement is necessary, which is a much higher risk if the compressor suffers damage.
  • High Energy Bills – Of course, the energy bills are high enough as it is on a commercial property. But many business owners these days strive towards a more energy efficient workspace. If you are concerned about the environmental impact of your AC, or if you just want to pay less from month to month, consider replacing your unit with an energy efficient model.

Don’t wait until the cooling season is in full swing before calling your local technicians for new commercial specialists. Call an expert today, and keep in mind that it takes a commercial specialist to service a complex commercial unit.

Why Get Your Air Conditioner Installed Professionally?

First things first, there is the sizing of your air conditioning system to consider. You see, an AC system is not going to cool your home effectively or efficiently if it is not properly sized to do so. Obviously, an undersized air conditioning system is going to struggle as it attempts to bring temperatures throughout your home down to target levels. The strain that this puts on your system means that it will not only use too much energy, but that it will suffer unnecessary wear and tear over time. This can lead to operational issues. What you may not realize is that an oversized air conditioner is actually no better. Sure, it will cool your home down. However, it will do so too quickly, which can negatively impact air quality and leave the air in your home humid and muggy. Plus, you are paying for too much power from the outset, and your system will short-cycle frequently, which can result in damages.

Plus, the installation of the various components of an air conditioning system requires the deft touch a trained technician. Laying out your ductwork, and even installing your thermostat, can have a major impact on the way in which your air conditioner operates. There are simply far too many variables to consider when it comes to an air conditioning installation in Dover, DE. Don’t risk a subpar cooling performance, personal injury, or voided warranties by attempting to do the job on your own. Call Atlantic Refrigeration & Air Conditioning, Inc. instead.
