Along with keeping the workplace at a comfortable temperature for staff and customers, an HVAC system can also help save money and aid in the promotion and maintenance of optimal air quality and the prevention of frequent AC troubleshooting. Commercial HVAC air filters catch and remove dust, mold spores and other toxic particles.
The life expectancy of commercial HVAC filters is limited. If you don’t change them on a regular basis, they’ll lose their ability to remove pollutants from the air and cause HVAC damage. The frequency with which you should update your system’s filters is determined by numerous factors, which are detailed below by Air Products & Services.
How Often Should Commercial HVAC Filters Be Changed?
As a general rule, a business in a relatively clean environment, such as an office building, should replace or clean its HVAC filters on a quarterly basis. Filters that serve dry, clean commercial settings can often run at peak efficiency for three months. The filter replacement schedule can be tracked on a calendar by designated staff.
HVAC filters, according to AC repair experts, should be changed more frequently in factories, restaurants, auto shops and other businesses that have heavy machinery, chemicals, grease and oil. Chemical byproducts and debris from the production process can quickly clog your HVAC filter, preventing air from flowing and straining your HVAC system. As a result, the HVAC system’s internal components may burn out.
HVAC filters should be changed at least once a month in businesses that produce a lot of dust and debris. Filters should be replaced before they get too clogged to work. Clean filters can extend the life of the HVAC system for many years.
In the end, dust and debris-clogged filters limit airflow, resulting in inefficient system operation and, in some situations, equipment failure.
Regularly changing filters and having an adequate quantity of replacement filters on hand are two simple strategies for reducing the likelihood of clogged filters. The easiest method for ensuring that all systems and equipment run well throughout the year is to create (and stick to) an air conditioning filter replacement schedule.
