No matter what type of business you own, you need to make sure that your commercial HVAC units are running smoothly. One way to do this is by scheduling regular inspections and having preventative maintenance performed on the HVAC systems whenever necessary. Here are some of the upgrades you should consider for your commercial HVAC system this year.
A Brand New Air Conditioner
Although it may seem silly to worry about an air conditioner during the winter, by upgrading now you will have a fully functional one just in time for the higher temperatures that spring and summer bring with them. The average lifespan of an air conditioner is somewhere between 10 and 15, so if yours is reaching the upper limit of that range, then it might be time to upgrade or replace it with a newer model. That way, you can save money on future maintenance headaches caused by aging machines and technology.
Next, think about the thermostat connected with your commercial HVAC unit or system. While smart thermostats have become popular options for residential HVAC units, they haven’t yet done the same with their commercial cousins. Upgrading your commercial HVAC systems with new thermostats will also save you money and energy, two vital resources that can allow a small business to grow or a larger business to thrive. Saving energy is also great for the environment!
How you control your commercial HVAC unit also makes a difference. Although manually controlling the settings might seem like the way to go, upgrading also has its benefits. In this case, automation systems and energy control systems help your building become more energy efficient. However, whether or not these particular upgrades will work for your building will need the opinion of a professional HVAC technician.
Variable Air Volume Boxes
Variable air volume boxes are also known as VAV boxes. While you might not have these upgrades installed, it is worth it to consider adding them. After all, these boxes help spread the air around your building, helping to improve indoor air quality while helping your employees and visitors breathe better.
