Tips for Maintaining Your Commercial AC
Actively looking after your AC unit can stop problems from happening in the future. Here are some tips and tricks to make your AC run efficiently in Vancouver.
Keep Your Air Filters Clean
An AC unit’s air filter should be check every month. Dirty filters need to be cleaned or replaced to prevent it being clogged later on. A clogged air filter will restrict air flow and cause the unit to work harder than it should.
Clean the Equipment
To keep you system running smoothly, make sure to clean the individual components of your air conditioner regularly to prevent the build up of grime, dirt, and other debris. You can use a shop vacuum to clear the dirt and dust around the AC unit and ducts.
Keep the Area Around the Unit Clear for Free Air Flow
Make sure nothing is blocking the outside vents and intakes of your air conditioner. You should keep landscape features trimmed back and make sure plants or other greenery don’t grow too close.

Schedule a Yearly Professional Inspection
An important part of maintaining your AC is scheduling an annual maintenance check-up. Try to schedule this tune-up for before the main cooling season begins, sometime in March-May, in order to make sure the AC unit is working well before the weather turns. The Aire Serv® Total Comfort Tune-up will ensure that your air conditioner is in total working shape and doesn’t have lurking issues. Getting it done early means you’re less likely to have the AC stop working when temperatures in Vancouver are at their peak. Our experts at Aire Serv® can address minor problems before they grow into larger, much more costly issues.
Know What Type of Air Conditioning Unit You Have
There are a number of different styles of AC units, and the way you maintain it will depend on the type of unit you own.
Common commercial AC units include:
- Split system units, which make use of an indoor and outdoor unit.
- Ductless split systems, which use indoor and outdoor units but without a duct system.
- Packaged air conditioners, which sit outside.
Commercial Furnace & Heat Pump Maintenance
Commercial heat pumps and furnaces need regular maintenance to stay safe and efficient. Most heating systems should be inspected by an expert technician in the early fall to make sure the system is operating correctly before the winter months and cold temperatures start.
There are a few things you can do as a building manager or owner to keep your system running smoothly between tune-ups:
- Keep your intake and blower vents clear of obstructions
- Inspect filters and replace or clean re-usable models
- Clean and vacuum the furnace and the surrounding areas
- Make sure the thermostat is working properly
- If the wiring is worn, frayed, or disconnected — call your Aire Serv® technician
- Check for leaks — if you smell gas, leave the business and call a professional
Constant operation can put a lot of stress and strain on furnace components. Components will wear out faster during periods of heavy use. The main reason for emergency repair calls during sub-freezing temperatures is that worn out parts of a neglected system have failed and caused the unit to stop.
The best time to schedule your furnace tune-up is during the off season, the fall months from September to early November. Call today to get your maintenance in Camas, Mill Plain, Ridgefield, Salmon Creek, or the surrounding areas scheduled.
