The Importance of Commercial HVAC Maintenance

 

Whether you’re trying to run a successful business, leasing office space, or keeping people happy with their work environment—the last thing you want to deal with is problems with your HVAC system.

A commercial HVAC system that has not been proper maintained can really disrupt the day-to-day operations of your business, reduce employee and tenant satisfaction, and not to mention a hit to your profitability!

 

Why do you need Commercial Maintenance?

 

Improperly maintained buildings can lead to problems for all kinds of organizations. That’s why commercial maintenance is a must. Facility and property managers use maintenance strategies to make sure the buildings people work in and the assets and equipment they use are safe and comply with the relevant regulations.  Commercial HVAC maintenance plans help extend the life of their HVAC building equipment and reduce operating costs in both frequency of repairs and energy savings.

 

How Long Do HVAC Systems Last?

 

Given the proper commercial HVAC maintenance, your system should last between 10 and 15 years. We’ve even seen systems that were properly maintained achieve a 25-year life span.  However, there are many factors that influence the longevity of your HVAC system. These factors include:

  • Efficient system design. Not all HVAC systems are optimally designed, and some heating and cooling units are developed to be more efficient than others.
  • Quality of key components (such as a compressor or heat pump). The better the parts, the better the system will operate.  Cheap parts save you money today, but good parts keep saving you money over the long term!
  • Extreme weather conditions. Heavily used HVAC systems tend to wear more quickly than units that are not used as often.
  • Correct system installation. If you think your HVAC system has been installed incorrectly, or you have any questions about how HVAC systems should be operating, give our expert team a call today at 888-702-4748
  • The Arizona climate. While Arizona is a beautiful state to live in, its extreme summer heat can cause excess wear on your HVAC system.
  • Technical skill of HVAC technicians providing routine maintenance. Quality is key to how well and how long your commercial HVAC system will operate. This includes the skill of the technicians!
  • Routine maintenance. The best thing you can do for your HVAC system is to schedule regular check-ups to ensure it is running smoothly, and to catch any problems before they escalate.

What Kind of Maintenance Does a Commercial HVAC System Require?

 

Air Conditioning Maintenance

  • Clean the system’s coils, blower components and condensate drain.
  • Check all electrical connections.
  • Lubricate critical components.
  • Adjusting refrigerant levels to ensure your compressor is running at optimal levels.
  • Check the thermostat for proper functioning and programming.
  • Prevent loss of conditioned air and wasted energy through identifying and sealing ductwork leaks.
  • Address issues in the AC system before they create costly repairs, unexpected damage, or a system failure.

Heating System Maintenance

During your maintenance visit, your technician will check:

  • Ensure the heat exchanger is not cracked or corroded.
  • Inspect all your furnace components including the heat exchanger, burner, reversing valve, plenum, blower, and flue pipe.
  • Check the vent system for leaks or blockages.
  • Lubricate the motor’s parts to reduce friction.
  • Check all electrical connections.
  • Test the unit’s safety controls and that the start-up cycle is functioning correctly.
  • Complete a professional cleaning.

 

What is the Benefit of Regular Commercial HVAC Maintenance?

 

Improve Comfort for Your Customers, Employees, and Tenants

Perhaps you just moved into a commercial space and didn’t realize that your HVAC unit had not been maintained in a long time. Dirty filters and coils causing the system to work harder which increases your utility bill and decreases the comfort level for the people. Once the system is brought back up to its optimal performance specs your tenants and employees will be able to operate in a much more comfortable environment and increase productivity!

Reduces Utility and Operational Costs

The more neglected your HVAC system is, the more energy it will use to operate. This increase in energy use will also increase your monthly utility bill. As a business owner, saving money on energy, reducing system down time, and reducing the amount of repairs needed over the systems lifetime, adds profit dollars to you bottom line. 

Reduces Breakdowns

Trying to entice customers to visit your shop or tenants to renew their lease during can be incredibly difficult if your HVAC system is not working correctly. Likewise, creating a comfortable environment for people is nearly impossible if you have a malfunctioning HVAC system. Unforeseen breakdowns can be reduced if you trust the technicians at AIR4U to do regularly scheduled commercial HVAC maintenance.

Extended Life of Your HVAC System

Without routine commercial HVAC maintenance, even the best equipment can start to wear out due to extended use or age. However, under the care of an AIR4U trained technician, regular maintenance will help keep all major components of your system lasting longer.

Maintaining Equipment Warranty

Did you know that your commercial HVAC systems warranty may and will be voided if you have not serviced the equipment with regular documented maintenance appointments? It’s very important to comply with all the requirements of a warranty protection program from the manufacturer. Doing so could even help you avoid having to cover the full cost of repairs or replacement of your system.

Improve Air Quality

Regular cleaning and inspections of your commercial HVAC system ensures that the air filter is being replaced frequently. This guarantees that you are giving your employees, customers, and tenants the best air quality possible. Should the air quality within your building become compromised, it could affect the health and productivity of everyone affected.

Safeguard Against Emergencies

Without regularly scheduled commercial HVAC maintenance, you could risk having to deal with more serious problems than a simple maintenance. Neglect to properly care for your HVAC system could cause:

  • Flooding and water damage from clogged condensate lines.
  • Carbon monoxide build-up due to dirty furnaces, blocked ductwork, or cracks in the heat exchanger.
  • Dangerously low oxygen levels from furnaces that don’t get enough fresh air.
  • Fires caused from soot building-up in your furnace or broken/loose electrical wires not being caught in time.

Peace of Mind

Arguably, the greatest benefit to scheduling routine commercial HVAC maintenance is that you will have peace of mind. Be a proactive business owner or property manager and ensure that your HVAC system is working correctly, avoid disruptive and costly system repairs and safeguard your staff and customers’ health.  You already have enough to do running your business let alone spend hours fixing equipment all the time.
