The workhorses of the commercial HVAC world are packaged rooftop heating and cooling units. Since the earliest days of electromechanical air conditioning for businesses, these rooftop units have been the standard way to deliver comfort for a workplace. The modular nature of these systems allows for easy expansion, and because they are designed as packaged units with all the components located in one cabinet, they are convenient to repair and maintain.

Westland Heating and Air Conditioning handles many commercial HVAC services and has for over a quarter of a century. Place your company’s comfort in our skilled hands.
Watch for these signs of rooftop unit troubles
- Uneven heating or cooling: It’s likely that you have more than one rooftop unit working to condition your business. If one stops working, you may at first not notice it because the others will continue to supply conditioned air from the vents. However, not all the rooms or zones of the workplace will receive the same level of heating/cooling, and you will start hearing complaints from customers and employees regarding hot and cold spots. These are early warnings that one or more of the rooftop units is encountering trouble.
- Odd noises from the vents: One of the advantages of rooftop units is that they remove noise from the workplace. However, a malfunctioning rooftop unit can often begin to make large amounts of mechanical noise, and this can echo down through the vents. If odd noises start to disrupt your business, then you should bring in HVAC repair specialists to look into the issue.
- Spike in utility bills: Rooftop units are durable and will often continue to produce their standard levels of heating and cooling despite having operational problems. However, they will drain far more energy to achieve their normal heating and cooling levels, and you will see this reflected on your bills. Since you keep a close watch on your company’s finances, you should quickly notice these leaps in costs. Don’t ignore them, since they will not improve over time. Instead, contact reliable repair professionals to see what work needs to be done.
To help avoid trouble from the rooftop units that keep your workplace comfortable for employees, customers, clients, and/or tenants, make sure to schedule twice-yearly maintenance visits.
