Every so often, you will need to replace your commercial HVAC unit. These appliances can last for several years, but without timely preventative maintenance, they won’t last as long as you would like them to. Here’s how you can decide if you need to replace your building’s HVAC unit.
The first thing you need to do is to review the system history. In all the time that is has been a vital part of your building, what’s happened to it? Your building may be old, but that doesn’t mean your commercial HVAC system is. You might have just replaced it a few years ago. Still, that won’t always prevent malfunctions and other problems. If you find yourself constantly relying on your preventative maintenance partner to fix up the system, then it’s time to replace it altogether.
Think about how much energy the commercial HVAC system uses. Being energy-efficient is one way to save money. The money you save can then be spent serving your customers. If the overall energy usage over the past few years has been unacceptably high, then it’s another sign. You need to replace your system as soon as possible.
Finally, consider the repair costs. At first, it might be quicker and easier to get some repairs done. These repairs won’t take too much time to do, and it won’t interfere with your employees. How many times has there been an overload or some other kind of emergency that affected your commercial HVAC unit? All of those stresses will add up. Sadly, there’s no easy way to know when repairs are no longer effective and replacements are necessary and urgent. Take all of these factors into account, and then decide what makes the most sense for your company!
