When summer strikes in Manhattan, it pays to be prepared by ensuring your HVAC system can handle your cooling needs. But stamping out the heat means more than setting your office thermostat to “cool.” Preparing your commercial HVAC system for the hotter season ahead requires some strategic planning. By following a few easy steps, you can make sure your commercial building remains cool and comfortable all summer long.
Part of preparing your commercial HVAC system for the summer means scheduling a routine maintenance check with a professional contractor. AFGO has the team of knowledgeable HVAC technicians you need to ensure your comfort needs are satisfied all year round.

Steps for Preparing Your Commercial HVAC for Summer
Keeping employees and tenants comfortable during extreme weather conditions requires your commercial HVAC system to be well-maintained and prepared for the season ahead. The following steps can help you plan ahead:
> Clean & Replace Air Filters: If your air filter is clogged with dirt and dust, your commercial building can quickly become stuffy and unbearably uncomfortable. Clean and replace your air filters ahead of time to avoid creating a stifling environment for employees and tenants.
> Clean Your Ductwork: Whether due to an overextended air filter or simply years of use, your HVAC ductwork can grow too filthy to support breathable, comfortable air quality. Especially if you’ve noticed increased allergy symptoms, dusty surfaces, or respiratory issues, contacting a professional team for your ductwork cleaning can help you better prepare for the summer months.
> Check Your Thermostat: Commercial buildings — especially office buildings — can lead to some intense thermostat battles between occupants. When this happens, it can indicate that your HVAC system isn’t distributing your ideal indoor temperature evenly. Check your thermostat and have it inspected by a knowledgeable technician to ensure it’s working properly and can support your comfort needs.
> Schedule Routine Maintenance: Your air conditioner should undergo routine maintenance at least once per year. Before the summer weather settles in Manhattan, be sure to schedule a routine maintenance appointment with your trusted HVAC service provider. Not only will this help ensure your system is capable of satisfying your cooling needs, but it will also help extend the lifespan of your air conditioner and help you avoid costly repairs and replacements in the future.
> Develop a Preventive Maintenance Plan: Many HVAC technicians provide the option of signing up for a preventive maintenance plan. At AFGO, our team provides a white-glove custom maintenance agreement to help meet your comfort needs. Our preventive maintenance packages help reduce operating costs, improve system efficiency, and provide ongoing support for your HVAC systems at a schedule that convenient to you.
By taking the time to prepare your commercial HVAC system for the summer months, you can help ensure your building occupants stay comfortable all season long. While some steps can be performed on your own, maintenance and duct cleaning services should always be left to the professionals. AFGO provides the cleaning and maintenance services you need from a team of knowledgeable HVAC technicians.
