HVAC tech inspecting an HVAC system

The failure of an HVAC system, especially in the height of the summer or winter months, can be a disaster. Whether your employees are expecting to work in a comfortable environment or you are trying to attract customers into a cool or warm store, well-functioning HVAC is essential.

The Signs HVAC Is Going Bad

Having a reliable contact for emergency commercial HVAC repair is one of those things that you never hope to need but are always glad to have. It’s fairly easy to tell when your system has suffered a catastrophic failure, but the steps leading up to that are often more difficult to notice if you aren’t paying attention.

It’s Taking Longer to Cool Your Space

When you have a brand new HVAC system installed, one of the first things you might notice is that it doesn’t take long at all to get your space cooled off even during the hottest summer days. Plus, once you start receiving the new utility bills, they’re usually significantly lower.

When your system is approaching an emergency failure, however, the situation is basically the exact opposite. You might begin to notice that your air has been blowing for longer than it normally might. Then, when you put a hand over the register, that air might not be as cool as you remember. 

When either or both of these circumstances occur, it could signify a number of different problems. The issue could simply be that your AC unit is low on refrigerant or that a simple tune-up is required. There is also a chance that the whole system is going to fail sooner or later.

The System Never Seems to Shut Off

This usually happens when the first situation I outlined above has gotten so bad that your AC is running without doing its job at all. In other words, you are wasting precious energy, putting wear on parts that may be about to fail, and you aren’t getting anything for it.

In the worst of these circumstances, you could even notice that the temperature listed on your thermostat is going in the opposite direction. At this point, your AC system is essentially operating as plain old ventilation.

Not only is this wasting electricity but, unless you get the situation checked out, the system might soon shut down altogether. When that happens, you’ll wish more than anything that you could just have ventilation back.

It’s Not Turning On Anymore

Maybe you hear a sudden loud noise before your system totally shuts off or it fades out so silently you don’t even notice it. Whatever the case, a system failure means that urgent repairs are necessary. The air is not coming back on its own.

If your system has in fact failed, only a skilled professional will be able to diagnose the issue  and restore your system to its proper function. This could involve ordering new parts or replacing a piece of equipment.

Whatever the situation with your system, the experts at React Industries have the experience to diagnose your problem and provide a solution that is designed with your budget in mind.

The Importance of Emergency HVAC Services

It’s one thing if problems with heating and cooling your facility are due to something simple, like failing to cool properly because of a lack of refrigerant. However, if you do not know exactly what the problem is and act quickly to fix it, there may be ongoing damage occurring to your equipment.

Greater wear and tear on parts can mean that even though you might fix one issue and restore function, other parts will be soon to follow. You can prevent this by choosing an emergency repair provider that is both responsive and thorough. Our team makes sure to look at more than just the immediately faulty equipment and ensures your system isn’t going to fail as soon as we leave.
