Three Signs That It’s Time to Call Us for Commercial HVAC Repair in Florida

Believe it or not, there are some tell tale signs that you need to call professionals for commercial HVAC repair in Florida before your HVAC system completely shuts down. Don’t get left in the sweltering Florida heat without a functioning unit. Call us as soon as you notice any of the following problems.

Hot or cold spots in your business

Your business should be heated or cooled at the same temperature throughout the building. Maintaining an even temperature will keep employees and guests (if applicable) happy throughout the day or night. However, if your HVAC system is starting to fail, it could have trouble pumping out the same amount of heat or cool air throughout the building. This means that some rooms or areas can be hotter or colder than others. Uneven temperatures will throw everyone off and make for an unpleasant office situation.

If you work in the hospitality industry, unsatisfied guests might leave your business poor reviews online, which may lead to a decline in your business. Keeping the temperature even is an easy thing to do to help keep everyone happy.

Unusually high electric bills

Staying on top of your expenses is an extremely important part of operating a business. If you’re spending too much on one thing in particular, you know you might need to cut back on it. Unfortunately, heating and cooling isn’t really something you can afford to spend less on. If you start messing with the thermostat by changing the temperature in order to save money, you run the risk of making the office too hot or too cold. If that’s the case, you’re bound to have unsatisfied and (possibly) unproductive workers.

However, if you haven’t been tampering with the thermostat and you’re noticing higher than usual electric bills, this could be a sign of a failing HVAC unit. Units that are on their way out tend to suck up more electricity, thus running up your electric bill. As soon as you notice a higher-than-usual charge on your monthly bill, call us for commercial HVAC repair in Florida!

Strange or loud noises coming from the system

Commercial HVAC systems are specially designed to run quietly to avoid disturbing employees or guests. If you notice noises like bangs, pops or rattles coming from the vents, you probably need to have an HVAC professional come and inspect your system. Other strange noises might come from the system when you first turn it on. Don’t risk having frustrated employees or guests—call us right away the first time your system is noisy.

We recommend hiring our experts at least once a year to come inspect your HVAC system to ensure everything is running properly. An inspection is far less expensive than a complete repair job!

If you opt to not have an inspection, don’t get stuck waiting around for a repairman once you realize your system is completely shot. Contact 5 Star Refrigeration & Air Conditioning, Inc. if you’ve noticed any of the above signs and you think it’s time for commercial HVAC repair in Florida.
