Often time’s preventative maintenance for HVAC is probably not the first thing considered when it comes to your company’s budget. But as long as you don’t have an emergency fund, getting an HVAC preventative maintenance plan really should be on your to-do list.
Not only will preventative maintenance maintain optimal performance and longevity of your HVAC system, it also helps to improve the quality of air. Indoor air quality is a major concern to business owners because it can impact the comfort, health and productivity of building occupants. There are many reasons why preventative maintenance for HVAC is such a smart idea.
What are the benefits of preventative maintenance for HVAC?
REDUCE OR ELIMINATE EMERGENCY REPAIR COSTS
Preventative maintenance is necessary to maintain optimal performance and longevity of your HVAC system. Having a technician regularly tune and clean your system will prevent breakdowns and help you avoid the cost and inconvenience to unexpected repairs.
CREATE A HEALTHIER ENVIRONMENT
Most Americans spend their working hours in an office environment and studies by the EPA show that indoor environments sometimes have higher levels of pollutants than found outside. Pollutants to consider include biological contaminants (bacteria, mold, pollen, and humidity), chemical pollutants (tobacco smoke, cleaning and consumer products, office equipment), and particles or what is sometimes visible in a sunbeam streaming into a room (dust, dirt, construction residue, etc...). Regular preventative maintenance can reduce the risk of air quality issues, creating a healthier environment.
REDUCE ENERGY COSTS
A system that is operating at peak performance is going to run more efficiently and for less time. This will reduce the amount of energy you use saving you money each month.
EXTEND EQUIPENT LIFE
Most business owners do not budget for an emergency replacement of their HVAC system. Keeping it cleaned and tuned can make it last years longer than it would without a maintenance plan.
The EPA provided a report to Congress stating that improving indoor air quality can create higher productivity and fewer lost work days. They estimate that poor indoor air may cost the nation tens of billions of dollars each year in lost productivity and medical care. This may sound fundamental but a working environment that is the right temperature and humidity is not only healthier for your employees but also a more comfortable and positive space to work in!Whether it is by keeping employees healthy and productive or by preventing an emergency HVAC replacement, it is obvious that having a preventative maintenance plan in place will benefit the bottom line of a company.
