HVAC service isn’t just for emergencies.  In fact, service inspections and tune-ups can actually prevent the emergencies from happening in the first place. Routine, scheduled service can improve the length of your HVAC equipment life, getting your the most out of your investment.

Think of your HVAC system like a car. To get the most out of our vehicles, we have regular tune-ups and oil changes as well as scheduled service when the car has hit a certain mileage. The same is true for your facility’s HVAC equipment. For your system to run at its best and most efficient, routine inspection and maintenance is the industry best practice. Ask your service contractor to help you put together a maintenance plan that will ensure your system runs optimally year-round.

During a scheduled tune-up, your HVAC technician will check your system for problems of any kind. If they do come across any issues, they can fix it before it turns into a costly repair. Seemingly small problems like low refrigerant levels or a dirty air filter can quickly turn into major headaches for your system (and for you). Effective service allows for early detection of problems and will prevent the need for expensive emergency repairs down the road.

Of course, repairs and replacements are inevitable. At some point, your HVAC system will need to be fixed or even replaced. But, proper service will reduce the amount and cost of repairs. It will also ensure equipment is replaced before a breakdown happens. The key is to partner with an experience commercial HVAC contractor. Look for a contractor with years of experience. Also look for a contractor that has experience with your type of facility. When the time comes for a big repair or equipment replacement, your HVAC service contractor will be able to help you select the best equipment for your facility.
