Although there is a defined “off-season” for the use of AC units, that does not mean they can be neglected until spring comes back. Preventative maintenance is especially important for commercial buildings of all sizes, even with regulations restricting indoor capacities due to the ongoing pandemic affecting the globe. Problems can arise due to buildups of dirt, dust, wear, and tear. Likewise, lubrication can run out, and the subsequent repairs could be more complicated and thus, costlier.
Steep Upswing in Operational Costs
Strive to keep operating costs down. By minimizing the operational costs associated with your commercial HVAC system, you can save money for other needs. After all, your goal is to generate revenue, satisfy your customers, and keep your business running for as long as you can. Motors can wear down due to overuse, which is one of the most pressing reasons for an inspection and maintenance done on a preventative basis.
Breakdowns Become More Likely
Equipment breakdowns are to be expected as your commercial HVAC setups begin to age. That said, downtime can be disastrous for your bottom line, especially in lean times such as the current coronavirus pandemic limiting building capacity. You’ll need reliable air conditioning in the spring and summer as well as steady heating during the fall and winter.
More Extensive Repairs Are Necessary
Without timely preventive maintenance, you run the risk of your systems requiring more extensive repairs. That’s why inspections must be conducted at regular intervals – plus, cleanings and adjustments carried out by HVAC professionals can save you plenty of time and money. You can’t really put a price on peace of mind – unless you want to be prepared for the future.
Preventive Maintenance Extends Service Lifespan
Speaking of the future, preventative maintenance goes a long way towards maximizing the expected service lifespan of your HVAC unit. Thus, you won’t have to worry about total system replacements until years down the road from now – as it should be!
Equipment Warranties Are Kept Intact
Finally, bear in mind that warranties could be voided due to lack of upkeep. You don’t want to be in that situation, especially when you are strapped for cash. The reason this is so important is that repairs and replacements can get expensive, and warranties can help keep costs from getting out of hand.
