Spending money on commercial services might make you cringe, but every smart business owner knows that the alternative is even worse. When you put off maintenance, you are putting your system and your business in jeopardy.
While you should be doing routine cleaning and upkeep throughout the year, getting a professional technician to inspect your business’s HVAC system at least once a year is a good rule of thumb. The best time of year to do this is usually the spring. This allows technicians to inspect any wear and tear that might have accumulated during the tough winter months, and helps you to prep for the big heat waves of summer.
Many business owners have hectic schedules, but it’s important to set aside a little bit of time every so often to do some preventative upkeep on your heating and cooling system. Yes, you! For example, you don’t have to be a technical genius to replace a filter. Changing the air filters every few months is an easy yet excellent way to protect air quality and improve the efficiency of your unit.
Even if you think your system is in tip-top shape, don’t let maintenance fall by the wayside. A clean system is operationally efficient, circulates safe air, and is less likely to require expensive emergency repairs. A yearly inspection is not just a good financial investment, but an important mental one – you can have peace of mind knowing you’ve taken precautions to protect your business from unnecessary costs and hazards.
