For most businesses, HVAC maintenance is typically necessary twice a year: once before you turn on the heat, and another time before using the air conditioning. If you don’t include a maintenance plan in your schedule, you put yourself and your business at risk for broken air conditioners when it’s especially hot outside — potentially resulting in disaster. Additionally, regular HVAC maintenance can benefit you and your system in the following ways:
- Lower utility bills
- Longer system lifetime
- Better quality air
- Savings on repair costs
Consider preventative HVAC maintenance similar to regular maintenance you perform on your car. You fill it with gas, change the oil, and occasionally check the tire pressure to ensure you’re not caught off guard with a breakdown that could have been avoided. Also, this simple maintenance prevents more expensive repairs to the engine or suspension. The same is true for your HVAC system.
Spot Coolers Help to Avoid Disaster
Rather than waiting to rent temporary air conditioning after an emergency happens, make it a plan to rent one during your scheduled HVAC maintenance. Just like with the car example, the cost of maintenance is minimal when considering the cost of repair or replacement. Spot coolers are an essential backup during any potential repairs and maintenance. With the help of a rental, your business is able to stay open even when your existing HVAC system isn’t running.
Additionally, temporary air conditioning can keep your expensive equipment from becoming damaged in the heat. Too often computer systems and other technology are ruined during HVAC outages and cost a business significant repair or replacement expenses, as well as time out of operation.
In order to avoid the pitfalls of an HVAC disaster, prevention is key.
