HVAC Maintenance in Your Apartment Complex
For the care of your HVAC systems in your apartment complex or commercial buildings, engaging a professional HVAC company to do maintenance on your system at regular intervals throughout the year will ensure that the heating and cooling of your property is running as efficiently as possible. Inspection and cleaning of the wiring and mechanisms of all your HVAC units will be completed, which requires the kind of training these professionals have. The experience and expertise of such a company are invaluable to any business owner since the comfort of all interiors and the energy efficiency of the buildings themselves are important to everyone: residents, tenants, and owner.
Here are some things you can do yourself as an apartment complex or commercial business owner both monthly and seasonally to maintain and prolong the life and efficiency of all your units and systems in between professional maintenance visits:
- Use pleated, high-efficiency filters: These types of filters have an electrostatic charge that works like a magnet to attract particles, including those that carry bacteria.
- Keep HVAC units free of grass, leaves, and pollen; make sure your landscaping company doesn’t allow grass to shower on top of any exterior units on the grounds.
- Clear two feet of space around all outdoor heating and cooling units.
- Inspect refrigerant lines each month.
- Replace air filter at least every 90 days.
- In summer, turn off the water to the furnace humidifier.
- In fall, replace the humidifier filter and turn on the water.
- Replace your carbon monoxide detector battery.
- Ensure outdoor AC unit is on firm and level ground.
- Clean AC condensate drain with bleach/water mixture.
Have your professional maintenance company check all your apartment complex ductwork to make sure it is all sealed properly during scheduled tune-ups on your HVAC systems. For more energy savings, pre-program the thermostats in your onsite offices.
Here at SERVPRO of Belle Meade West Nashville, we care about you and your business. When it comes to maintaining the HVAC systems in your apartment complex or commercial buildings, we are here to help.
Maintaining the HVAC System in Your Highrise
As the owner of a highrise building, maintenance is something you are always concerned about. Every living or office unit needs to be cared for properly so that your tenants are content with their arrangements. High lease turnover is not an attractive prospect for any commercial building owner.
One of the most important aspects of your highrise is going to be the interior environmental climate you provide for your tenants, so HVAC maintenance is going to be high on your list of projects to complete thoroughly and regularly!
Depending on your total square footage, you might want to consider setting up a contract with a professional HVAC company. A business that handles large-scale maintenance of this kind will have a predetermined schedule that will include tune-ups, clean-and-checks, and other services whose purpose will be to keep your HVAC system and units performing at their best.
Changing filters and humidifier pads on a regular basis will go a long way to prolong the life of your system, and your HVAC company will include that in your contract. One less thing to worry about.
When it comes to natural gas heaters, a professional can handle these easily and safely, alleviating the stress that can be a part of this particular maintenance. Your HVAC company will be able to test to see if carbon monoxide is being released into spaces in your building due to gas not burning completely; this is a project that would be difficult for someone not familiar with this area. With the right equipment, they can determine oxygen levels as well as carbon monoxide levels and flue temperature, allowing your furnaces to be adjusted for optimum performance.
You will want to calculate cost and benefits before you engage a professional on a maintenance contract. Some companies will promise priority service and reduced rates for service calls to customers who have maintenance contracts, and then there’s the peace of mind you will have from knowing there is an experienced eye doing regular inspections, alleviating any guesswork.
Here at SERVPRO of Belle Meade / West Nashville, we know HVAC systems inside and out, and we have the experience necessary to keep your highrise system at top functionality.

Does Your High-Quality Department Store Have a Low-Quality Smell?
Don't let lingering smells chase your customers away!
Are you chasing away shoppers with the bad smell of your store? High-quality department stores are known for their classy appeal. From the outside, they look appealing urging those passing by to walk in for some retail therapy. But do you know how your store smells?
The Importance of Good Smelling Stores
If you run department store, you know that keeping your margins up is non-negotiable. There are many ways that retailers have influenced shoppers to make purchases and playing on their sense of smell is one of them.
A study by the American Journal of Business indicates that certain scents in a retail environment help shoppers reduce their anxiety levels while in a crowded store space. Supermarkets regularly deploy in-store delis where the aroma of food triggers hunger pangs in the customers, driving impulse food purchases and foot traffic.
If smell positively impacts customer behavior, then it goes without saying that the reverse is true. If your store has a dank smell, it will repel shoppers and cut on your sales. A good example is this Apple store that had a lot of body odor smell and was driving customers away. Deodorization is, therefore, an important part of the sales strategy for any department store looking to maintain high brand standards and increase turnover.
If you want to eliminate any bad smells from your store you need to engage a top-quality professional. At SERVPRO of Belle Meade, we seek to provide impeccable deodorization services to Nashville stores and businesses, homes, construction workers and others who require the service.
Identifying the source of the odor is the first step and doubles up as also being the trickiest part of the process as well. Our professionals are skilled in odor detection through training gained via IICRC technical classes and therefore will not be looking to mask your bad store smell but to eliminate it.
Bad smells inside your store affect not only your customers but also the staff. Productivity suffers when your employees can’t work more efficiently because they have to keep stepping out for fresh air or find other ways to combat the odor. We are not satisfied with only removing your bad odor, but we go one step further to identify the conditions that cause it saving you the time, lost income and staff-hours due to odors. Get in touch with us today to kick that odor out once and for all!
