Air conditioning at the workplace must work perfectly if you want your staff to work without disruption. Sometimes an emergency might occur. Some of these situations are easy to spot, while others can be complex. Some of them you can fix, but others require tools and skills that only experts have.
If your system manifests any of the following complications, you need an emergency repair.
- Icy evaporator/condenser coils
- A plastic smell on your wiring
- Uneven conditioning/cooling
- Unusual noises
For most people, when they encounter some of these problems, they tend to ignore them especially if the system is still working. If you do so, you risk further damage, which can lead to expensive repair and replacements. Do not ignore even the slightest of them; have it fixed immediately.
If your system has any of the complications above, do the following:
Check if the system is powered correctly
It is simple; if your power supply is not adequate, your system will not work optimally. Power outages, intermittent capacity, and low voltage can cause system failure. You have to check your power source to be sure that your system has an emergency. Tripped circuits and breakers, powered off switches, and destroyed fuses can give you a false alarm that your system is not working.
Check your thermostat settings
Your system is not cooling because it is probably not set to cool the office. Always check your system settings before calling in for an emergency. Ensure that your thermostat temperatures are below the room temperature if you want to cool a room.
Check your filters
Clogged or dirty filters can be the cause of your air conditioning problems. If you know how to clean reusable air filters, you can go ahead and do that. If you are not sure, call in a trained expert to help you with that. You can also replace it with a new one as you wait for the expert.
Call a professional
Once you have checked the power, settings, and filters, your system should be working efficiently. If it does not, it means it needs an emergency intervention. Call in trained HVAC experts within your location.
