We interrupt the normal Christmas programming to make the following public service announcement: don’t let the holiday season keep you from taking care of your commercial building’s HVAC system. With all the parties and other holiday festivities that keep us running this time of the year, it is easy to do. Let us spur you to action with this horrific image: months and months of dirt, pollen, grime and other undesirable gunk building up in your HVAC system’s ductwork and circulating throughout your building every time the system comes on.
Armstrong Mechanical takes pride in our long history of servicing the Lubbock, Texas business community. So, we want to stress that HVAC maintenance is crucial to keeping your system running the way it should. This will make your employees and tenants happy and healthy, save money on your utility bills and protect your investment. Our professional HVAC technicians are the best around in air conditioning repair and overall HVAC repair.
COMMERCIAL DUCT REPAIR
Depending on the size of your commercial building, the HVAC system’s ductwork can consist of hundreds or even thousands of feet of ductwork. Like the circulatory system made of veins and arteries that deliver blood throughout our bodies, the duct system delivers climate-controlled air to all parts of your property. Over time, the ductwork can become cluttered and even partially or completely blocked. This will restrict the airflow and force your system to work longer and harder. It can also become damaged over time in the form of holes, tears, or loose junctures that can allow as much as 30 percent of the air to escape. Of course, all this means more wear and tear on your system and higher utility bills. Here are a few signs your ductwork may need cleaning or repair:
- Uneven heating and cooling spots throughout your building
- Dust buildup on furniture, equipment, etc.
- Strange rattling or wheezing noise
Armstrong Mechanical specializes in inspecting, cleaning and repairing commercial HVAC systems and their duct networks. Our pros will look for duct leaks or damage that can be caused by rodents or other factors and also check for high amounts of mold, mildew or other contaminants which can affect the indoor air quality of your commercial building. We can also inspect and repair your building envelope, which is the separator area between the conditioned and unconditioned areas of your building.
