If you are getting unsatisfactory performance from your commercial compressor, it’s important to ask yourself why. The compressor itself is often looked at as the most likely culprit when a system doesn’t work as expected, but there are many factors that can contribute to that failure.
It’s true that the compressor is the “heart” of your system, but it’s not the only crucial piece!
If your commercial refrigeration or HVAC system fails, it’s a wise idea to perform a full root cause analysis and get down to the true cause. Otherwise, even a replacement compressor may not last as long as you want.
Up to 90% of Commercial Compressor Failures Could Originate Elsewhere in Your System
Naturally, it’s critical to know about your compressor’s age and service history. As compressors reach and exceed ten years of age, diligent maintenance becomes even more essential. Even the best compressor will eventually “age out” and need to be replaced. In cases like this, the failure point may be no mystery.
