Common Causes of Commercial HVAC Failure

If your business relies on an HVAC system for operation, comfort and/or quality control, then it is extremely important that it is operating at full capacity at all times. There are several things that can go wrong in an HVAC system that can hinder production and productivity, and knowing them can help prevent these downfalls from occurring. Take a look at this list of common commercial HVAC issues so you can learn what might be happening with your system, and then contact an expert commercial HVAC technician to have the issue corrected. Remember, the longer you wait, the worse the problem will get.

Blown Fuse

The fuse is designed to keep the HVAC motor from overheating. If the motor is no longer running in the AC, ventilation or heating system, the first thing a technician will often check is the breaker switch.

Burnt Out Capacitor

There is a run capacitor and a start capacitor in many systems. The start capacitor allows the system to get going by providing an extra boost, and the capacitor is what allows the motor to run at a constant speed. If either of these burns out they will need to be replaced for the system to work correctly.

Clogged Drain Lines

If any drain lines become clogged the drain pan will fill up, resulting in a water leak that could cause water damage.

Thermostat Problem

The thermostat is what tells the system what to do in regard to temperature control. It is important that the thermostat is on and set correctly to ensure the HVAC system can operate as designed.

Seized Compressor

The compressor is the brain of the AC unit. If it is under or overcharged with refrigerant it may overheat or run sluggishly.

Refrigerant Leak

If the system develops a refrigerant leak it will need to be repaired immediately. Depending on where the leak is certain parts, such as the condenser or evaporator coil, may need to be replaced.
