HVAC Surveys

Poorly performing HVAC equipment can be expensive and a major source of energy consumption. EDSS can perform a survey of your facility HVAC equipment to determine the health of your system. These surveys are particularly helpful in proactively discovering mechanical concerns. 

Our technicians come to the site and check:

  • Date of Manufacture
  • Electrical Connections
  • Compressor Function and Running Amps
  • Economizer Function
  • Condition of Evaporator and Condensing Coils
  • Common Maintenance Items; Filter and Belt Replacement
  • Ductwork Insulation and Connections to Supply and Return Registers
  • Thermostatic Controls
  • Comfort of Occupants (i.e. any known concerns)

Following the site survey, a comprehensive report is provided to document the findings and present recommendations for maintenance, repair or replacement as needed.
