When summer temperatures skyrocket, you rely on your HVAC to keep you cool. To ensure you don’t get stuck with a faulty air-conditioning system when you need it most, it’s crucial to keep up to date on servicing office trailer HVAC units. As the days begin to grow longer and the sun starts to get warmer, having a professional inspect your HVAC will confirm your system is running efficiently and not costing you extra money when cooling down your space.

If you’re renting a mobile office or modular building (or you own one), regular HVAC check-ups and following preventive maintenance checklists can save you from sweating or shivering and the frustration of irregular utility bills. At Satellite Shelters, we want to make sure all our customers beat the heat during the summer months, which is why we offer HVAC preventive maintenance programs to take the stress out of finding a certified service technician.

Comprehensive HVAC Checkups for Office Trailer A/C Units

Simply changing filters on a regular basis is not enough to keep your HVAC running at maximum efficiency. To maintain top performance of mobile office air conditioning units, regular checkups should also include:

  • Condenser and evaporator coil cleanings
  • Condenser and boiler tube cleanings
  • Testing oil acidity
  • Checking belts

Mobile Office HVAC Maintenance Tips

It’s important to maintain all of your mobile office trailer’s utilities to keep them functioning at full capacity. Proactive ways to prevent problems with your modular building’s HVAC system include:

  • Replacing air filters about once a month to avoid clogging ducts
  • Setting the temperature to at least 65 to 70 degrees during cold months to avoid coils freezing
  • Keeping items like furniture or supplies away from blocking thermostats and return vents
  • Keeping the HVAC system on the automatic setting to maintain consistent room temperatures
  • Keeping window shades or blinds shut when possible to reduce light and heat
  • Checking door and window caulk and weather stripping for tight sealing
  • Inspecting walls for cracks, separation, or warping
