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 plan out maintenance, 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 help in the following ways:
- Lower utility bills
- Longer system life
- Better quality air
- Saving 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 surprised with a breakdown that could have been avoided. Also, this simple maintenance prevents more expensive repairs like the engine or suspension.
Spot Coolers Help to Avoid Disaster
Rather than waiting to rent temporary air conditioning after an emergency happens, plan to rent one during your scheduled HVAC maintenance. Just like in the car example, the cost of maintenance is minimal when considering the cost of repair or replacement. Spot coolers are essential backup during any potential repairs and maintenance. With the help of a rental, your business is able to stay open even when your HVAC 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 in repair or replacement expenses as well as time out of operation.
