HVAC maintenance may seem like an unnecessary expense to some business owners, but that’s because the costs of neglecting to properly maintain their HVAC system aren’t being factored in. No matter how you look at, HVAC maintenance costs a lot less than HVAC repairs or, in serious cases, an HVAC replacement.
Other than avoiding costly repairs, what are some additional benefits of staying on top of HVAC maintenance?
Optimal indoor comfort. Dusty filters and ductwork can drastically lower indoor air quality. They can also obstruct indoor airflow, preventing your HVAC system from distributing warm or cool air evenly throughout your home and creating hot or cold spots. A preventive HVAC maintenance routine, which typically includes cleaning ductwork or replacing air filters, helps maintain optimal indoor air quality and airflow, which can, in turn, ensure that customers and employees experience optimal indoor comfort.
Lower heating and cooling costs. Energy efficiency and optimal airflow always go hand in hand. If something’s blocking the vents and cool or warm air can’t circulate, your HVAC system will have to work overtime and consume more electricity to keep temperatures at a comfortable level. As such, making sure there’s optimal airflow in the building is vital to reducing heating and cooling costs, which usually make up a huge chunk of a business’ electricity bills.
A longer lifespan. The problem with your HVAC system having to work harder than necessary is that the added strain could wear out its internal components and shorten its lifespan.
How Often Does Your HVAC System Need to Be Maintained?
Contractors recommend having a professional contractor from an HVAC services company do an inspection at least twice a year, ideally in the summer and fall.
