configuration are easier than ever before. Service reminders and e rror notifications make it simple to ensure the unit stays running smoothly and to identify problems before they become an issue. The frequency of scheduled

maintenance visits for your system will depend on a number of factors, i ncluding the amount of time it is in use each day, the times of the year it operates in and the cleanliness of the environment that houses it. Another important reason to

Manufacturers too are playing a part in making maintenance easier. Today’s humidification units feature more durable parts than their p redecessors and some now use reusable cylinders for a longer life c ycle. Some units even make a signal to alert you to when they are really dirty or full of limescale. Additionally, the inclusion of features such as a blow-down pump to remove scale deposits helps to reduce maintenance further.

Systems with individual

components that can be replaced and serviced not only drastically lower maintenance costs, they also benefit the environment by shrinking the unnecessary waste produced by disposing of large groups of components or even whole units. Some manufacturers also have step-by-step videos available online to explain the operating principles of their HVAC systems and to demonstrate installation and maintenance procedures. Showing how the products work and giving practical, visual guidance on common maintenance procedures is a huge help for contractors, specifiers and clients who may not deal with this type of equipment every day.

Common mistakes

Your HVAC system should be c onsidered an investment. To get the most out of it, here are some common mistakes to avoid.

C hange your filters as often as

recommended by the manufacturer. By delaying the replacement of an unclean filter you may be overburdening your HVAC system by putting a strain on the motor. Changing the filter is easy and cost effective, saving you from a potential overheating or overcooling problem. Do not renovate without

consulting a HVAC professional. HVAC units follow a design system that takes the specific requirements of its environment and application into account. Changes to a build can affect moisture and air flow distribution, as well as the HVAC unit’s ability to heat or cool in an efficient manner.

Do not delay maintenance. Most HVAC problems are attributed to negligence and can be prevented through routine maintenance diagnosis. The earlier a fault is detected and resolved, the less likely your business or premises are to experience any production or productivity downtime. Ultimately, maintenance improves system

efficiency. Just make sure you use an accredited professional. 31
