Exhaust & Ventilation System Maintenance Services in Chicagoland

Both exhaust and ventilation equipment are responsible for keeping air clean and free of debris, as well as boosting HVAC efficiency and air handler quality. These systems must be rigorously and routinely maintained in order to keep them in proper order. However, no two systems are exactly alike, which means your chosen maintenance teams must be capable of assessing your unique needs and creating a detailed custom maintenance program according to these.

At General Mechanical, we have extensive experience in the handling, installation, design, and service of all exhaust and vent systems. We will begin our service by analyzing all on-site equipment and drawing up a detailed maintenance plan, and then we will execute that plan in order to address your business’s needs completely.

The Advantages of Routine Exhaust Maintenance

Continuous cleaning and tune-up services are worth considerably more than just an ounce of prevention. By choosing to pursue routine maintenance, you can gain many advantages, including:

  • Reduced component wear to extend equipment life span
  • Improved performance and equipment energy efficiency
  • Better building and room air quality
  • Reduced risk of downtime
  • Less risk of costly fan and vent repair

Exhaust Fan Maintenance Inspection Checklist

All elements of an exhaust fan and system should be carefully inspected. These include:

  • Bearings: usually the source of the biggest fan problems
  • Belts: these need to be checked and replace whenever wear begins to show
  • Blades: buildup of grime and residues on the blades can  cause imbalance and poor performance
  • Inlets, shafts, access ports, main drive and outlets should be regularly inspected and cleaned.
  • Connectors: used to isolate fan vibrations from the system, these will malfunction when worn or broken
  • Louvers and Dampers: if clogged or inoperable, these will affect fan and exhaust performance
  • Motors: the most vulnerable part, motors should be checked for operating efficiency and repaired or replaced when they begin to falter
