Commercial HVAC Repair: What to Do When Your AC Unit Acts Up

It’s every business’ nightmare. Customers are inside your establishment on a hot summer day, getting a nice reprieve from the heat (thanks to your air conditioner), when all of a sudden the unit starts acting up. As a business owner, your plate is already full dealing with running a profitable business. A faulty commercial HVAC is the last thing you have time for.

But when a problem arises, it’s important to take care of it as soon as possible. Especially if you own a restaurant, bar or cafe where you need to keep food and drinks cold and safe. Or beachfront retail where people are trying to escape the sun. At Air Tech, we understand that our commercial customers can never afford to wait. A malfunctioning AC means more than your discomfort —  it can result in unhappy customers and lost business. The commercial AC experts at Air Tech are prepared to handle all your HVAC repair needs, quickly and completely.

Below, we’ll cover some common commercial HVAC repair problems and what to do if it happens to you.

Common Commercial HVAC Repairs


Air Quality Concerns

Poor air quality is not just a health concern, affecting asthma or allergies, it can also deter customers. If the air coming out of the vents in your building smells funny, they will notice. Dirty filters and ductwork leaks are common culprits for poor air quality. Frequently it can be as simple as a filter issue, but sometimes the problem is more complex. Our experienced HVAC technicians can help to pinpoint the root cause and repair the issue.

Strange Sounds

Nothing is more distracting during an intimate dinner conversation than a noisy HVAC system. If your AC is making a lot of noise every time it turns on or shuts off, it can be an indicator of loose or broken parts. If left alone, this minor nuisance could soon turn into a major repair. Call a certified HVAC technician to inspect it immediately.

Lack of Capacity

Many commercial HVAC systems suffer from a lack of capacity. Outdated cooling or heating systems or recent remodeling projects may result in an HVAC that can’t keep up with new demands. An AC with insufficient capacity can lead to decreased energy efficiencies, increased HVAC strain (leading to more frequent repairs), or a decreased lifespan.
