Whether you own a restaurant, grocery store, shopping center, or another type of business in New Mexico or Texas, your commercial HVAC system is one of the essential components in your building. Without a working HVAC system, your building will quickly overheat or get cold, as will the people inside it.
Therefore, knowing what type of commercial HVAC problems to look for is essential so you can plan for them in advance.

7 Most Common Commercial HVAC Problems to Prepare For
Dirty HVAC Filters
Dirty HVAC filters are the most common cause of issues with commercial HVAC systems. The job of your filter is to catch dirt, debris, pollen, and other particles as they travel through your HVAC system so that they can’t get into the air you breathe.
However, when HVAC filters catch enough dirt and debris, they start to clog and block airflow. When this happens, your commercial HVAC system will get overworked and unable to produce enough air.
The good news is that commercial HVAC filters are easy to replace and are part of our standard service visit to your building.
Unexpected Rise in Your Heating or Cooling Bill
If you have an unexpected rise in your utility bill, it’s probably because your system isn’t running efficiently. A lack of efficiency can stem from several things, but they’re all issues we will see and diagnose when you contact us for a service visit for your Texas or New Mexico business. Here are a few of the most common causes of an inefficient HVAC system.
- Your system is old and outdated.
- You have leaks in your air ducts.
- Your filters are clogged and must be replaced.
- You don’t have a smart thermostat.
- Your system was installed without proper air balance.
Your thermostat is like the brain or motherboard of your commercial HVAC system. It tells the system what to do and what temperature it should be in various parts of your building. Therefore, when there’s an issue with your thermostat, it will affect the performance of the entire system.
Here are some of the most common thermostat issues we look for during a service call.
- Dead batteries
- Loose wires
- Communication problems between the thermostat and HVAC system
Your HVAC System is Making Strange Noises
It’s never a good sign when you hear your HVAC system making strange noises. Any time you hear rattling, banging, clanging, or whistling noises, it’s time to schedule a service visit with a commercial HVAC pro.
Your HVAC System Won’t Turn On
When you try to turn your HVAC system on but nothing happens, you’re in for a long day. There are several possible reasons for this problem, including:
- The thermostat is malfunctioning.
- Your furnace blew a fuse.
- The circuit breaker for your HVAC system flipped.
- A thermostat communication wire is cut or missing.
Due to hot and lengthy Texas summers, refrigerant leaks are common. Your refrigerant is the supercooled liquid that allows your air conditioner or heat pump to produce chilly air inside your home. However, refrigerant leaks are seemingly inevitable if you have an older HVAC system or one that was installed incorrectly.
While it may be possible to repair the leak, there’s a chance that the whole system will need to be replaced. The only way to know for sure is to contact a commercial HVAC pro and have them examine the damage.
