At Sensible Air Systems Inc., we understand that you care about your business, and we want to help you do what’s best for it. No matter what industry you are in, a key part of keeping your business competitive is making sure that the facilities and their systems are in good working order—for example, you need to keep your AC unit running smoothly in order to keep your employees and customers comfortable. Although your commercial AC unit will last for a long time, it will eventually need to be replaced. In this article, our team will go over a few things to look for in order to tell whether you need a new commercial AC unit for your facility.

Do You Need a New Commercial AC Unit?

  • Inconsistent Air Flow. One sign that you may need a commercial AC unit is inconsistent airflow coming from your vents. You should feel a steady flow of air if your system is working properly, and if your vents sometimes deliver cool air and sometimes don’t, then you should have the system checked out.
  • Age of Unit. Another way to determine whether you need to replace your commercial AC unit is to look at the unit’s age. Most AC units are designed to last for roughly 15 to 20 years, so if your unit is nearing the upper limit of that range, it may be wise to replace it preemptively, just to prevent it from quitting on you unexpectedly.
  • Complaints. A third sign that you need a new commercial AC unit is your employees or customers starting to complain about the heat. If that happens, then clearly the AC isn’t working like it should.
