Average Commercial HVAC Lifespan

On average, a commercial HVAC system will last for 15 to 20 years. But there are a lot of factors that can affect this estimated lifespan. Monthly maintenance steps are a big part of helping your commercial HVAC system last longer. You have to change out the air filters monthly and sometimes hose down the system so that dirt and grime on the outdoor portion of the unit doesn’t block airflow from getting out.

The size of your commercial HVAC unit is also an important factor. If your commercial HVAC is not big enough to meet your heating and cooling means it may take on additional strain as it tries to condition your business. This strain can greatly reduce the expected lifespan of your HVAC system. If we notice that this is a problem during a maintenance appointment, we can talk to you about your options for installing an additional unit alongside your existing setup.

Early Signs of Problems

It is important to pay attention to how your HVAC system operates on a daily basis so that you can pinpoint when something is wrong or unusual. For example, if your HVAC system suddenly begins to stay on for a long period of time without turning off, or turns on and off frequently, something is affecting operation.

You also want to be aware of unusual sounds and odors coming from your HVAC system. While your HVAC system will never be completely silent, it should also not be noisy or loud. If it is, that’s a red flag that you should schedule a tune-up to get the potential problem checked out. 

The same thing goes for bad odors. Unusual smells mean there’s the potential that something inside of the unit is burning up or overheating or that you have a gas leak.

Scheduling a Heater Check-Up

If you haven’t already scheduled a heater check up for your commercial system this year, now is a great time to do so. You can make sure that your heater is working at its best ahead of the holiday and winter seasons. If we notice anything unusual, we can talk to you about the issue and get it fixed before it begins to affect how your heater is operating to keep your business location warm.
