2. Have Annual Maintenance

3. Investigate Smells and Sounds
Commercial HVAC systems may have odd smells and strange noises now and then. An HVAC that’s making weird sounds or smells could be a serious issue. There are many reasons smells and sounds happen with an HVAC. Regular maintenance allows a professional to determine the source of the sound or smell and correct it.
4. Check Ducts
While replacing air filters, a technician will check the ducts for leaks and debris buildup. Other parts to check include the fan, safety controls and blower motor. Keeping debris from critical parts such as the ignition system, blower assembly and evaporator coil.
