Commercial HVAC tips for the winter
Massachusetts winters can be very brutal. If your commercial building is not ready it can be very expensive for you because there are so many things that can wrong and disrupt business. Below are simple things you can do to keep your HVAC system and your business running all winter long.
It is highly recommended that you change your filters before a peak season like summer and winter. This is because your system has a greater demand at these times. Make sure you are changing filters regularly (1-6 months) to avoid getting pollutants and mold into the air. If you do not, it can be a major health issue for your employees and those entering your premise. If you smell musty odors in any area of your building make sure you get the air quality sampled to rule out the possible growth and spread of mold. Depending on the size and location of your HVAC system it may be better to hire someone to help change the filter for you.

What is important is that you always have a good idea of the current condition of your system and when possible services will be needed.
