Most Common Commercial Cooling Problems

Who to Call for All My Commercial Cooling Needs

Commercial cooling is the cooling portion of the HVAC system that is necessary for a commercial property to function. Without proper cooling, your school, business, church, or other types of commercial property will be uncomfortable, humid, and have mold problems. Therefore, it's vital to know who to call for your commercial cooling needs.

Contact us at 1-800-Plumber + Air of Marietta if you need commercial cooling repairs, installation, or maintenance. We're the local leaders in commercial cooling, heating, and all things HVAC-related. If you're wondering which commercial cooling system is right for you and what to be on the lookout for, you've come to the right place.

What is Commercial Cooling?

Commercial cooling refers to any type of cooling or air conditioning equipment used to cool the air on a commercial property. Most of the concepts and equipment used in commercial cooling are similar to that of residential properties but on a much larger scale. Most commercial properties require multiple cooling systems that are also larger in proportion than those used on houses or apartments.

What are the Most Popular Commercial Cooling Systems?

If you're thinking about replacing your existing cooling system or installing a new one, this section is for you. Modern commercial cooling systems are more efficient and easy to operate than older ones, and you have more options to choose from.

Split Systems

A split system is when you have an air conditioner outside your building connected to a furnace or air handler inside the building. The two units work together to provide both heating and cooling to the property. The inside portion of the system, the air handler, will have a series of ducts that carry conditioned air to various parts of your building.

Rooftop Units

Rooftop units, also known as all-in-one units, are when the heating and cooling of your commercial property are done by a single unit located on top of your roof. As with a split system, a series of ducts and pipes connected to the rooftop unit disperses the air throughout various parts of your building.

Mini-Splits

Mini-splits are somewhat similar to split systems but have one significant difference. Mini-split systems are heat pumps that feature an indoor unit usually mounted high on a wall and an outdoor condenser. However, where a split system has ductwork connected to it, a mini-split system doesn't.

Instead, a fan and vents are built into the indoor unit that blows cold air during the summer and hot air during the winter. On commercial properties with numerous large rooms, it might be wise to install a mini-split in each one of them rather than having a split air system.

Geothermal Systems

Geothermal commercial cooling systems are one of the newer heating and cooling methods. Geothermal systems use water to generate hot or cold air and send it through a series of ducts to various parts of your building. This system is also an all-in-one unit, but it's located inside your building rather than on the roof.

Most Common Commercial Cooling Problems

Refrigerant Problems

Regardless of what type of commercial cooling system you have, refrigerant is always a possible issue. Refrigerant is the component responsible for cooling the air that gets dispersed throughout your building. However, having too little refrigerant, a refrigerant leak or dirty refrigerant can all cause a world of problems for your cooling system.

Short Cycling

Short cycling is when the compressor on your air conditioner constantly stops and starts for no reason. Typically, your compressor will run until the thermostat is satisfied, then shut down. However, with short cycling, your compressor will stop prematurely and could be a sign of a significant problem with your commercial cooling system.

Dirty Filters and Coils

One of the biggest issues with residential and commercial cooling systems is when your air filters or coils get dirty. Your air filter's job is to keep the air flowing through your system as clean as possible. However, when it gets too dirty, it blocks the flow of air and can cause your air handler to get overworked and shut down.

Your cooling system has two coils: the evaporator coils and the condenser coils. The evaporator coils are inside your building, and the condenser coils are in the air conditioner. If either of these coils gets too dirty, the same problem will result as with a dirty air filter. Air must flow freely and unobstructed over the coils to get cooled, and if it can't, it could cause a malfunction with your commercial cooling system.

Poor Air Balance

No matter what type of system you have, poor air balance is always possible. Poor air balance is when one room feels freezing cold during the summer while another one is warm. When winter hits, the same problem will occur: one room feels like a sauna, but another feels like a freezer.

This problem is especially prevalent with older commercial cooling systems and properties. Nowadays, you have the option of multi-zone systems and dampers that keep this problem from happening.
