For most business owners, their heating system is the least of their problems when compared to the other matters they need to attend to when running their business. The reason for this is commercial heating systems tend to be quite resilient, so they provide you with long-term durability. Nevertheless, this does not automatically mean that the heating system will not develop some issues at one time or another. The key is to know how to post the signs of underlying problems and enlist commercial electrical services before the problem becomes aggravated. So what are the telltale signs of impending commercial heating repairs?
The heating system is short cycling
Short cycling refers to the heating system spontaneously shutting off when it is in operation. The first thing that you could check is whether the timer is in good working condition. If the problem does not lie with the timer, chances are the heating system is overworking itself. As it overworks, it starts to overheat, and this will cause the system to automatically shut-off in an attempt at self-preservation. It would be prudent to hire a commercial electrician to diagnose the cause of the overworking and to have it remedied before permanent damage occurs.
The heating system is leaking
Leaks in a commercial heating system will happen in appliances that use a boiler as their source of heat. Usually, a few droplets around the boiler may be normal on occasion. However, you could have a serious problem on your hands if you find that you are experiencing significant wet spots around the boiler, on the walls and even on the ceiling. It would be best to stop using the commercial heating system until a commercial electrical contractor sorts out the problem.
The heating system is making strange noises
Strange sounds coming from a commercial heater can easily be overlooked since these systems tend to be noisy when in use. As such, it is essential for business owners to know how to discern what is normal and what is strange. One of the weird noises to be wary of would be grinding noises coming from the heater. This grinding sound typically implies that there are motor bearings in the air handler that are worn and need replacing. The second type of noise to be wary of would be booming sounds. These booming sounds could indicate that the heater's burner is misfiring and would require immediate attention from a professional.

Hello, my name is Carl and this is my construction and contractor blog. I do not work in the construction business but last year, my wife and I had a lot of work carried out on our summer home which is located on the Gold Coast. Winter storms had damaged the roof and a couple of seabirds had made a nest in there. The place was a real mess but thankfully the contractors did a great job of repairing the roof and fixing up the damage to the loft space. I learn a lot during the repairs so I decided to start a new blog. Enjoy!
