Technician Performing Preventative HVAC Maintenance

1. Improved Efficiency

When it comes to all things heating and cooling, efficiency is the name of the game. For a system to operate at maximum efficiency, it requires annual inspections, tune-ups, cleanings, and other maintenance work. In general, it has been found that properties that receive periodic maintenance are 15-20% more energy-efficient than properties that don’t.

With the right maintenance technician, your property can prevent energy loss through air leakage, changes in climate, and system malfunctions. Schedule annual maintenance for your commercial business today, and start enjoying more comprehensive heating and cooling relief throughout your property.

2. Lower Energy Bills

Better energy-efficiency and lower energy bills go hand in hand. As your commercial HVAC equipment ages, it is natural for it to have to work harder to accommodate your property’s needs. This will result in higher heating and cooling bills for you. However, studies have found that through basic maintenance like coil cleaning, you may be able to slash certain energy-related costs by an average of 17%.

While it is true that modern HVAC equipment is far more energy-efficient than the systems that were on the market 30 years ago, maintenance is important for old and new equipment alike, especially if you want to maximize energy savings.

3. Fewer Repairs

Even more frustrating than standard HVAC operating costs are the expenses related to heating and cooling repairs. With preventative maintenance, you can catch potential problems with your commercial HVAC system before they spiral out of control, saving you a lot of money over time. No business owner wants to have to shut down temporarily because they have to close for repairs. Hire a commercial HVAC company for maintenance, and you can avoid this and save more money in the long run.

4. Longer System Lifespan

While you may want to upgrade your old HVAC system to a more energy-efficient model eventually, it makes sense to get the most you can out of your current heating and cooling equipment. The best way to do this is through annual maintenance. In most cases, the cost of maintenance far outweighs the price you will pay for early replacement. Consider that if you have a system that costs $10,000, and you spend as much as $10,000 maintaining it over its 10-year lifespan, you will still have only spent $20,000 on total HVAC costs over the course of a decade.

However, if you did not properly maintain the unit, and it failed at the 5-year mark, you would need to spend another $10,000 to replace it—meaning that it cost you the same amount of money in half the time. Changing your HVAC equipment’s oil, replacing belts and filters, and hiring a technician for general cleaning and other maintenance tasks goes a long way towards preventing this from happening,

5. Greater Environmental Benefits

If you are a business owner who is at all concerned with being eco-friendly, there’s no question that scheduling preventative HVAC maintenance is better for our planet. Around the globe, the cooling industry produces an unnecessary emissions value of 500 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent (CO2eq) annually.

By optimizing and monitoring our HVAC systems, the U.S. alone could slash this amount by 5 million metric tons of CO2eq a year. So as a responsible business owner that is trying to save money on energy costs and do something good for the Earth, it’s hard to argue with the benefits of preventative maintenance.

6. Improved Indoor Air Quality

Did you know that preventative HVAC maintenance can help to improve indoor air quality? If you or your employees suffer from asthma or other respiratory illnesses, preventative HVAC maintenance can significantly help to reduce symptoms. Preventative HVAC maintenance can also help to eliminate the spreading of airborne allergens. Indoor allergens can carry airborne particles such as dust mites, pollen, mold, and cigarette smoke, and more, which can pose serious health concerns. Regular HVAC maintenance typically includes services such as air duct cleaning, which can help to create a cleaner breathing atmosphere for you and your fellow employees.
