3 Signs You Need Commercial AC Service

Your commercial air conditioner plays a vital role in your business, no matter how big or small it is. You want to make sure that your team members and patrons are all comfortable when they visit your business location. It’s important to pay attention to early signs that can point to air conditioning problems.

When you call our team to schedule service for commercial air conditioning in Clinton TWP, MI, our team can fix AC problems before they begin. Keep reading to learn more about three signs that your air conditioner is malfunctioning so you can schedule service sooner rather than later.

High Humidity

Sometimes air conditioner problems can reduce the quality of your indoor air. One of the more obvious ways to identify that your air conditioner is not working great is by paying attention to your humidity levels.

Although your commercial unit is not designed to manage humidity levels completely, it should go a long way toward maintaining lower-than-usual humidity. If the air in your business suddenly seems warmer or heavier than it usually is, that may point toward a condensate drain clog or other operational problem.

Inaccurate Thermostat Readings

You may also find that your thermostat readings are inaccurate. In this case, it is probably your thermostat that is the problem not actually your air conditioner. However, this is still a concern that you want to take seriously since your thermostat largely controls how effective your air conditioner is at cooling. 

If the thermostat reads the indoor air temperature incorrectly, it may signal for your air conditioner to turn on for cooling cycles at the wrong times, if at all. Sometimes thermostats need to be recalibrated, while other times we may need to change out the batteries or clean the inside of the unit. 

Bad Odors

Bad odors without a source can also be attributed to your air conditioner. On one hand, your air conditioner can take in bad odors from another source and distribute them throughout your business location. But if you have an unexplained odor, it may actually be something wrong inside of your air conditioning system. Dirty ductwork can make the air smell musty. 

If the air seems damp or moldy, you may have a mold infestation somewhere in the system due to moisture buildup. It’s also possible that a burning smell points to your unit overheating or a chemical odor points to a refrigerant leak. The bottom line is, any unusual odors coming from an air conditioner need to be taken seriously.
