Because we enjoy warm weather through most of the year in the deserts of Southern California, it can be easy to take for granted the operation of heating and air conditioning equipment. There’s no hard line between the cooling season, when air conditioners put in the most work, and the heating season, when heaters turn on. The heating season is brief, and air conditioners still often have to put in work during the winter.
But if you own a business in the area, you can’t afford to ignore any possible issues with your commercial HVAC system, heating or air conditioning. A lot is at stake: comfort for employees, clients, customers, tenants, and protection for equipment. A home may be able to scrape past without heating for a few days if something goes wrong—but the impact on a business when the HVAC system falters can be immediate and severe.
