How to Handle Your Commercial HVAC Emergency

Your HVAC system keeps your building running. That’s why it’s critical to develop a backup plan in the event of a critical HVAC failure. If it’s too late and you’re already experiencing an emergency, here are some quick tips from one of the most trusted air conditioning companies, Stone Heating and Air, to get your system back up and running as quickly as possible. If, on the other hand, your organization wants to take a proactive approach to HVAC emergencies, here’s what you need to know:


Commercial HVAC Emergency

Identify the problem. Don’t rush to the phone and call up a technician just yet. When something is out of place, you need to get an idea of what the problem is before making the next move. Look over your equipment to determine how big the problem is and if you can fix it yourself.

Perform basic troubleshooting. Before you call an HVAC contractor, there are some simple steps you can take to see if you can get the system back up and running on your own. A quick check may solve the problem, saving you the expense of calling an HVAC company. However, if none of these quick fixes get your HVAC system running again, it’s time to get in touch with the professionals.

Call your contractor. Many commercial HVAC companies have a 24/7 emergency response line that can set you up with repair services almost immediately. If the situation is severe enough, they may be able to do same-day or next-day repairs and replacements. Make sure you give them as much information as possible about the state of the system and the changes you’ve observed to make their assessment faster and easier.

 Tips to Avoid Emergency HVAC Problems 

  • Save for the unexpected. Build up your savings for the most surprising situations, especially for problems with your commercial heating and cooling systems. Set aside a small amount of cash every payday. This way, you won’t be left in a lurch when the HVAC system fails suddenly.
  • Sign up for a warranty program. A warranty maintenance program will give you the assurance that your units are well-maintained. This will also make your needs a priority when it comes to HVAC emergency services.
  • Prioritize preventive maintenance. Be sure to have regular maintenance and inspections performed on your HVAC system. A proactive approach includes seasonal maintenance appointments, corrective repairs and efficiency upgrades that keep your heating and cooling equipment operating at peak efficiency while maximizing the longevity of your HVAC investment.
