Statistics show that Canadians are updating their HVAC systems due to climate change. When HVACs are updated, it's tempting to forget about their yearly maintenance needs and not schedule regular appointments. In doing so, you could be damaging your system and making it break.
To help you, we've found everything you need to know about the advantages of routine maintenance. That way, you can determine if scheduling annual maintenance checks is right for you and your company.
Read on to learn more about preventative commercial HVAC maintenance.
Reduces Emergency Repairs
Scheduling routine maintenance for your HVAC unit will reduce the number of emergency repairs and associated costs. With routine maintenance, technicians will look for any issues your unit has so they don't become an emergency.
For instance, technicians will review a unit's temperature control to ensure all coils are unobstructed and clean. Technicians may even run tests to see if there are any leaks or blockages in the system. These maintenance checks ensure your HVAC is in good condition and reduces the number of emergency repairs needed and their high repair costs.
Promotes Energy Efficiency and Decrease Costs
All units should work efficiently, but not all do due to a lack of regular maintenance. When a commercial HVAC system is not maintained properly, the unit will start to use more energy to complete its tasks. Studies show that 66% of your utility bill is due to your HVAC.
However, if a unit is in good working condition, the HVAC uses less energy, making it more efficient. Since the HVAC uses less energy, your company's energy bills will decrease.
Studies have found that efficient-working HVACs can save your company over $1,000 annually. Think about it this way, if you pay upfront for regular maintenance, you'll save money since you won't have to pay more for energy and repair costs.
Extends Equipment Lifespan
Routine HVAC maintenance is quite like getting your vehicle maintained. Vehicles need frequent oil changes, brake pad replacements, and even filter changes to work properly and extend a vehicle's life.
HVACs work the same way; they need to be maintained so they work correctly for a longer period of time. The general lifespan of an HVAC is around 15 years.
However, if your HVAC has blockages or dirty coils, it will overheat or break before year 15. To extend the lifetime of your HVAC, make sure you schedule regular maintenance with certified technicians.
