Restaurant HVAC System Repairs and Maintenance
Restaurants have very specific demands when it comes to their HVAC systems and what works well in a traditional environment won’t always work well in a restaurant. Restaurants or food services establishments where food is either prepared, cooked, or served can be more difficult to heat and cool because of the temperature fluctuations. For this reason it’s critically important that your restaurant of food service business HVAC system is always operating a peak efficiency. You want your employees and customers to be comfortable in your facility and ensuring your HVAC system is operating smoothly is a good first start.

Restaurant Specific HVAC Challenges
Air pollution and contamination – Kitchen facilities in a restaurants or commercial kitchen can produce significant airborne pollutants that will eventually build up and degrade the performance of your HVAC system. The cooking and serving of food can release substances like smoke, grease, food residue and cleaning materials. Not only can this cause odor problems but it can also hamper the performance of your HVAC system if you don’t keep up with the maintenance including cleaning and changing filters.
Rapid Temperature Fluctuation – A commercial kitchen usually runs pretty hot with commercial ovens, deep fryers, and stovetops running for many hours everyday. It takes a substantial HVAC system to help provide cooling so the environment is tolerable for your employees and customers. But what about at the beginning or end of the day when the kitchen isn’t so hot? Then you might be relying on your HVAC system to provide heat or heat to specific rooms such as a waiting room, lobby, dining room, or restrooms. An HVAC system that is flexible and can meet these significant air exchange demands must be maintained properly or it will never perform as it should.
Exhausting and Outside Air Exchange – HVAC equipment is designed to bring in outside air to provide proper ventilation and help replace the air that has been exhausted from your building. However, the outside air is not always appropriate for the conditions required inside. For example, if it’s very humid outside you wouldn’t want all of that humidity coming back into your kitchen which can cause mold and mildew problems. Restaurants rely on HVAC systems that can variably control the exhaust, intake, and humidity levels inside the building.
