Who doesn’t love to save money for their business?
You may find that cutting costs in some areas helps you reduce the spending of money. But have you ever considered saving money on your bigger items?
Think about your HVAC system. We bet you probably don’t think about it often. But the fact is, you won’t think about it until it’s no longer working. So it’s best to be proactive before something major happens with your system.
Read on to learn how regularly keeping up with HVAC maintenance can save your business money in the long run.
Regular filter changes will help prevent major damage to your HVAC.
Dirt and dust accumulate over time. And when this builds up within your HVAC system, it can wreak serious havoc on the system. The build up can cause a complete shutdown of your system, leaving your business to suffer.
There are special filters, known as HEPA filters, that will regulate and clean the air of bacteria and germs. This means your employees will be breathing better air quality, and they will be healthier to show up for work.
Poor filters can also cause a lot of wasted air and energy, which will cost you more money later on.
So regular filter changes will prevent this.
Clean fan and belts
The inner workings of the HVAC system should also be kept free of dust and dirt.
Dirty fan blades can result in them working a lot harder than needed. This means more energy and more money out of your company’s pockets.
Poorly functioning belts need to be replaced each year to ensure that they’re running properly. If these were to go out, they would be a costly repair. It’s significantly cheaper to have your HVAC maintenance professionals take a look at them to make sure they’re working properly.
40% of energy is used for residential and commercial properties in the United States.
And if your HVAC cabinetry is not maintained, you can experience gaps and leaks within the unit. This means that extra cool air will leak out, costing you loads of money due to wasted air. And that means wasted energy.
An unmaintained cabinet exposes the unit to the elements like wind, rain, and snow. This will result in mold, short circuiting, and ultimately a ruined unit. These are larger costs that will set you back a significant amount of money.
It’s best to take the time to have an inspector take a look at your HVAC each year to ensure there are no gaps or leaks.
The compressor within the HVAC unit is like the heart of the unit. So if you are experiencing problems with this piece of the equipment, you will be looking at high repair costs.
Have an inspector check it routinely to make sure that it’s absorbing heat correctly. The inspector will also make sure there is no moisture present that could potentially damage its coils.
HVAC maintenance will save you money
Think of your HVAC like your car. Routine oil changes are necessary every so often. So you should also make sure that your HVAC is getting its routine checkups.
You will end up saving a lot more money in the long run. And you won’t be caught off guard when something goes awry with your unit.
