Not spending money unnecessarily as a business owner is a smart strategy toward success. To cut costs, sometimes owners will decide against spending on regular commercial HVAC maintenance, since their systems and equipment seem to be running well. That is a mistake. By having regularly scheduled maintenance performed, you are actually saving money in the long run, since many repairs are preventable with regular maintenance. This saves you money in two ways––the repair itself and you not losing production time from employees who need to stop working due to the HVAC incapacity. Setting up a preventive maintenance agreement or contract with professionals ensures your system is serviced regularly and customized to your company’s specific needs.
Preventive Maintenance Agreement
By purchasing a commercial HVAC preventive maintenance agreement, your system’s equipment is serviced on a regular basis, typically quarterly, to avoid problems and breakdowns. The professionals servicing your company, like the ones at Scott Brothers Heating & Air, can customize a plan that best suits your company’s needs. Maybe you don’t need every piece of equipment serviced quarterly, only a few. Maybe your system is very nuanced and needs more frequent visits. Whatever your business needs, an agreement can be customized to address those needs. When setting up your agreement, be sure to ask your professional how long each maintenance visit will take, what needs to be done to improve your system’s performance, and after each visit if he or she will be reviewing any maintenance issues with you. These three things in particular can help you decide which company can best serve your business when deciding which HVAC company to use for your HVAC maintenance program.
Advantages to Regular Maintenance
The biggest advantage of regular HVAC maintenance is cost savings. By servicing your equipment on a regular basis, these same professionals will become familiar with your equipment and can spot beginning problems easily, avoiding costly repairs and issues. Also, by regularly maintaining your equipment, your system will work more efficiently, using less energy and providing more comfort, translating to less money spent. Regular maintenance leads to longer lifespans for equipment as well, meaning less equipment replacements overall.
