5 benefits of investing in planned maintenance
Just like cars, HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems require regular care and maintenance to operate properly. With a relatively small investment, you are guaranteed to reap several benefits. In this blog post, we will be looking into why regular maintenance is such a worthwhile investment.
It can save your business money
Lower utility bills should be enough incentive to service and maintain your HVAC systems. When your refrigerator, air conditioner, boiler, etc., are operating efficiently, you will spend less money on electricity and heating bills. Regular maintenance also helps you stay covered under warranty in case your unit requires replacement or expensive repairs. Most manufacturers will ask you to provide proof of maintenance when you submit a repair claim under warranty.
Increases your HVAC’s lifespan
Regular maintenance is a prerequisite for longevity. HVAC systems can last up to 20 years, but only if they are well taken care of. Consider investing in planned maintenance to help extend the lifespan of your system.
Improves your air quality
An unmaintained HVAC unit is a magnet for mould, dirt, bacteria, and other allergens that could cause or worsen respiratory diseases such as asthma. Therefore, ensure that your coils and filters are regularly cleaned to improve the quality of air in your building.
Fewer system breakdowns
When running a business, the last thing you want is a malfunctioning HVAC unit. Unexpected breakdowns can cause substantial financial losses, so invest in planned maintenance to prevent this from happening. With every maintenance service, the HVAC technician checks and corrects any issues before they turn into expensive problems.
Peace of mind
The main reason for investing in an HVAC unit is to create a conducive working environment for you and your employees. However, for you to continually do this, you will need to get a planned maintenance package. This will give you the comfort of knowing that if something goes wrong, you have taken the necessary measures to ensure the problem is resolved as soon as possible.
