Your business or commercial building is a tremendously important part of your life. You’re proud of it, as you should be! It’s worth the time and energy you invest in it. But the truth is, it can also cause you a lot of stress, especially aspects like the HVAC system which can be a bit mysterious. How can you reduce the stress of being responsible for this commercial HVAC system and all the people it serves? Here are 3 helpful tips.
1: Maintenance Goes a Long Way
Repairs on commercial HVAC systems can be incredibly inconvenient and costly. In fact, it’s estimated that an average HVAC breakdown in a business results in a cost of around $5000, and most of that is not the repair itself, it’s the lost business and work interruption. And if that breakdown should lead to the system having to be entirely replaced, it’s an even greater cost and inconvenience.
Maintenance is the key to avoiding all of this. Scheduling routine commercial HVAC maintenance twice a year—ideally in the spring for your AC system, and in the fall for your heating system—cuts the likelihood of repairs being required by 85%. It will also prolong the life of your systems. Without any maintenance, they will probably only last half as long as they could, meaning you’ll buy a new system twice as often!
2: Only Rely on Professionals
DIY repairs are stressful, and they can be very costly, despite generally being done with the goal of reducing costs. But your time is valuable, multiple trips to the hardware store for things you may or may not need really add up, and frequently, professional repairs are required after all, when the DIY attempts don’t work.
Even a maintenance person who is not specifically licensed in HVAC repair is a poor choice for your commercial system. While they are probably skilled in many areas, in this one, they should be considered an amateur. HVAC systems which have amateur repairs performed are more likely to need more repairs soon, and nothing will be covered by your warranty, because amateur repairs will void it.
3: Count on One Trusted Partner in the Care of Your HVAC System
When only one reliable HVAC contractor works on your system, there are many benefits. You never have to scramble to figure out who you should call when something goes wrong. The person who comes to work on your system has access to all the records of previous service and all the information they need to do the best job possible.
Do keep in mind that while there are many companies which provide high-quality, licensed services for residential HVAC systems, commercial systems are different in both size and complexity. Technicians who specialize in commercial HVAC service in Hanford, CA will work on these systems with ease and speed, and they know how to keep intrusions and business interruptions to an absolute minimum.
