Commercial AC Repair

A glitch in your commercial air conditioning can ripple through your business operations faster than you think. It’s not just about the discomfort—overheated employees struggle to maintain productivity, and customers may hesitate at your doorstep rather than stepping into an uncomfortably warm environment.

Our service area spans across Central Indiana, reaching businesses in cities like Indianapolis, Beech Grove, Fishers, Plainfield, Greenfield, and Martinsville, to name a few. Whether you’re facing an unexpected breakdown or just need routine upkeep, our team of certified HVAC technicians has you covered.

Recognizing the Signs of AC Trouble

Spotting the early signs of air conditioning issues is critical for maintaining a comfortable atmosphere in your commercial space and ensuring uninterrupted operations. Here are some of the red flags to watch out for:

Unusual Noises

Hearing grinding noises? That might mean the motor’s bearings are in trouble, making it work harder than it should. And if there’s a hiss, it could be leaking refrigerant, which really takes a toll on how well your system cools. Then there’s the banging or clanking – these sounds usually mean something’s come loose or broken inside, and if you don’t get it fixed soon, it could mean bigger problems down the line.

Reduced Cooling Efficiency

If your commercial space isn’t cooling down fast enough or can’t seem to maintain a steady temperature, it’s a sign something’s not right with your AC. This could be due to a few different issues – maybe your air filters are choked up with dust, or there’s a refrigerant leak messing with the cooling power.

Sometimes, even the thermostat might be off, misreading the temperature and causing your AC to underperform. When your AC isn’t working efficiently, not only does it make your space less comfortable, but it also puts extra strain on your unit as it has to work overtime to try and keep up.

Unexpected Increase in Energy Bills

If your energy bills are on the rise and you can’t figure out why, it’s likely your AC isn’t running as smoothly as it should. Maybe it’s because the equipment’s getting old and not as energy-efficient anymore, or you’ve got ducts leaking cool air, making your system put in extra hours just to keep the place cool. Additionally, if some components are working harder to make up for others that aren’t pulling their weight, your system ends up using more energy and bumping up your bills.

If you’re encountering any of these issues with your commercial AC system, reach out to Honest Abe’s for commercial AC repair.

With our maintenance plans, your AC is in good hands. Our skilled technicians conduct bi-annual visits to not only clean and tune your system but also to familiarize themselves with your specific setup. This deeper understanding allows for more precise adjustments that enhance its performance and preemptively address potential issues.
