Keeping up with HVAC maintenance is just one of the many responsibilities of a commercial property owner or manager, as well as one that has long-term benefits. The commercial heating and cooling contractors at Sierra Air share a look at how commercial HVAC maintenance can be beneficial to your business in this post.
Maintenance Ensures Efficiency
Poorly-maintained heating and air conditioning systems can make up a big chunk of your monthly utility costs. Wear and tear from daily use—as well as accumulated dust, dirt and other indoor air pollutants on the filtration systems—can place additional strain on HVAC systems. When this happens, they use up more energy, leading to higher utility bills. Staying up-to-date with repairs, maintenance and inspections will keep your HVAC systems efficient so that they use only the energy they need. which will help keep your utility bills low.
Prolonged HVAC Life Span
Everybody wants to get the most mileage out of their car, along with their roof. You probably want the same from your commercial air conditioning systems, and neglecting maintenance isn’t the way to achieve this.
As we’ve described above, neglected HVAC systems tend to have to work more, and thus cost more to operate. They also tend to have shorter service lives because of this. A few additional years of hassle-free operation thanks to regular maintenance can result in deferred replacements that can benefit your annual budget. Regular maintenance also allows your HVAC company to spot minor problems and fix them before they become major ones.
Continuous operation makes clients happy, particularly when it’s too hot or too cold outside. Neglected HVAC systems are more likely to break down when you least expect it. While you can certainly count on HVAC companies like us to perform repairs in as short a time as possible, the preferable option is for your HVAC systems not to break down in the first place. This will result in less complaints, clients will likely sign longer leases and you’ll be able to keep all your office spaces occupied.
