Here are the basics to making sure your company’s air conditioner stays in good working order.
We know. It’s hot. It’s southern CA. But if you hike the air conditioner down as low as it can go, you’re going to overload the unit. Find a comfortable setting and you’ll avoid extra strain on your system and a more budget-friendly power bill.
One easy way to control temps in your building is to get a digital, programmable thermostat. These can be calibrated to set the temp at certain degrees and certain times of day. In other words, cooler during businesses hours, warmer at night, etc. Going digital also limits access to warm-natured employees who may currently have the power to lower the temp anytime.
Most likely, you have a few external and internal components to a commercial air conditioning.
Many businesses are in buildings with two, three or more stories. This multi-level dynamic impacts how air circulates and could decrease the effectiveness or efficiency of your air conditioner. If you haven’t bought a new system recently, you can always call a specialist (like one of our team members) and get your system assessed.
We can identify any changes that need to be made and educate your staff to know where the supply registers are and how they work.
Even tiny cracks in the system could cause refrigerant to leak. If you ever notice that your system is blowing hot air or not cooling effectively, this is an issue to look into right away. Leaked refrigerant and proper ventilation are two prime suspects for air conditioner breakdowns.
In a regular tuneup, an HVAC professional will look into all of your ducts and tuneup your system. They’ll also double-check that your refrigerant is at the right level, which keeps your system running smoothly.
Because it deals with cooling and heating air, air conditioning systems have a lot of moisture. In addition to double-checking for signs like frost, there are drains that can easily become plugged. You’ll want to monitor this on a regular basis. Drip pans should capture errant leaks. If they become full, they will overflow, which indicates that there is too much condensation or a plug.
Plugged drain lines (usually near the condenser unit) can cause damage or cause the system to shut down entirely. The latter will happen if your system has a drain float, which issues an emergency shutoff.
You can shopvac your pipes and drain lines. If you have to do this more than once or notice a lot of foul-smelling water coming out, call a professional.
You may have inherited an old system or simply had your system running at full capacity for a decade or more. If it is time to replace, be sure that you get expert advice. Purchasing a new air conditioner for your business that doesn’t fit the system, building size or energy needs is a waste of money. We can help you find the right unit. Contact us to learn more.
Even if you perform regular maintenance nd are on top of things, all machines break down sometimes. Let’s face it, southern CA definitely tests the limits of cooling systems. Depending on the age of your unit, size of your building and a ton of other elements, your air conditioners may face issues sooner rather than later.
Noticing the symptoms of malfunction is going to save you huge headaches. Here are some indicators that you have a problem:
Preventative maintenance is ideal. Emergency service is sometimes needed. Either way, we’ve got your back.

Brandon Bowen is simply amazing. He loves what he does and it’s fun to watch him work. He came out quickly to service our A/C when it went out on a hot day. He had it fixed in no time. I would recommend Brandon and Dynamic Air Services to anyone in need of A/C service. Jason B
I had a great experience with Dynamic Air Services yesterday. The service technician, Brandon, called that he was on his way, fixed the AC problem on the spot and the cost was lower than another company’s estimate. Brandon was extremely courteous on the phone and even replaced the AC filter without me asking him. I would highly recommend this company for any AC issues. David Johnson
Brandon showed up on time and explained everything he was doing when he tested condition of my A/C. He gave me some options that I could do now to fix the problems and some things that didn’t have to be done immediately. My A/C is now running like it was brand new. I would recommend Brandon and Dynamic Air to anyone who wants a professional job done at an affordable price. Mark Nussbaum
