How investing in commercial HVAC maintenance can prepare your systems for all seasons

HVAC systems are essential for all businesses, providing commercial buildings with optimal indoor comfort and air quality. However, like any machinery, these systems require regular maintenance to function effectively. It’s for this reason, all businesses should be investing in a commercial HVAC maintenance contract.

How will investing in commercial HVAC system maintenance benefit my business?

Regular service and maintenance from a company that specialises in commercial HVAC solutions can provide numerous advantages to your business. We’ve included five of these benefits below.

Prevents costly breakdowns

Many HVAC breakdowns in commercial buildings are considered an emergency. If the problem is severe, a system breakdown can be costly, inconvenient, and in some cases bring business operations to a complete halt.

Taking preventative measures, such as investing in regular maintenance services, can help you identify minor issues in your systems before they escalate and cause major disruptions to your business.

During a maintenance check-up, an engineer will conduct an inspection and compile a list of any components that have experienced unusual wear and tear or are nearing the end of their expected lifespan. Business owners can then use this information to develop a proactive plan to keep their system operational and budget for a replacement long before it is required.

Maintaining a HVAC system on a predetermined schedule costs far less than regular emergency breakdown visits, therefore investing in regular maintenance can result in long-term cost savings for a business.

Longer system lifespans

Commercial HVAC systems are a substantial investment for any business and therefore should be cared for appropriately.

Even the best-designed systems may begin to fail due to prolonged use or age without maintenance. Therefore, enlisting these services can help you avoid premature equipment failure and the high costs associated with replacement.

Through regular preventative maintenance, you can extend the life of your HVAC system by several years while also improving its overall health and functionality, ensuring equipment operates at its optimal level for as long as possible.

Greater energy efficiency

Regular system maintenance has a significant advantage in terms of reducing your energy usage.

Commercial HVAC systems contribute significantly to overall energy consumption, and an unmaintained system can result in a general decline in energy efficiency, causing your bills to ultimately increase.

Maintenance services provide regular tune-ups, cleanings, and inspections to ensure that your system is operating at peak efficiency. For example, conducting regular maintenance to air conditioning equipment can reduce the energy use of a unit by up to 15%, helping businesses to reduce energy waste, save money on utility bills and lower their carbon footprint.

Enhanced indoor air quality

A properly maintained HVAC system helps to improve indoor air quality. HVAC systems, such as air conditioning units and warm air heaters, contribute to air quality by circulating and filtering indoor air, which helps to control odours, remove contaminants, and maintain thermal comfort.

However, a poorly maintained system can have the opposite effect. Dust, allergens, and contaminants can accumulate in HVAC ducts and filters when systems are not properly maintained. This can lead to poor air quality, which can cause health problems like allergies, respiratory issues, and headaches, as well as negatively impact the well-being and productivity of building occupants.

When carrying out regular service and maintenance, an engineer will inspect your heating and cooling equipment to ensure that your system is producing the cleanest air possible for your building. They will clean and replace filters, clear debris, and ensure correct airflow throughout your system, resulting in cleaner and healthier air for your employees and customers.

Compliance & warranty requirements

As a standard, nearly all commercial HVAC systems come with a multiple-year manufacturer’s warranty, which usually requires regular maintenance to remain valid. Typically, these agreements will require proof of preventative measures taken during servicing and maintenance to cover a failed component that’s under warranty.

Failure to provide proof of routine maintenance may void your warranty, requiring you to cover the entire cost of repairs or replacement.

This is why it’s important to invest in a commercial HVAC maintenance contract. Regular maintenance helps you to comply with warranty requirements and reduces the likelihood of you having to pay a large sum to repair or replace your system, providing additional protection for your HVAC investment.

There are many consequences to failing to conduct regular maintenance services, including poor indoor air quality, excessive energy bills, expensive repairs, and reduced equipment and system lifespan.

Experts advise having your HVAC systems inspected and serviced annually or twice annually for air conditioning, before the heating and cooling seasons start, to ensure that they run efficiently all year.

It is essential to ensure that your systems are fully operational at this time of year to keep people inside your building comfortable in the summer, as well as in early autumn to ensure you can provide central heating when the cold weather arrives.
