Why HVAC Preventive Maintenance is Essential?

August 6, 2021

Companies today are looking for ways to impact their bottom line on two fronts:  business growth and cost reduction.  What many do not realize is that there are hidden opportunities to regain potentially lost revenue within their facilities.  You could save money, breathe cleaner air, enjoy increased safety, and comfort in your premises, and help the environment while boosting your overall peace of mind. How? That is by having proactive and effective HVAC Preventive Maintenance.

Let’s take a closer look at why HVAC preventive maintenance is such a wise and worthwhile investment.

  1. Save Money

Regular HVAC maintenance is said to reduce the risk of costly breakdowns by as much as 95%.  According to the US Department of Energy, preventive maintenance helps ensure that your HVAC system runs at close to peak efficiency and can save up to 30% on your energy bill. Regular maintenance extends the life of your system, reducing the likelihood that you’ll need to spend big bucks on an HVAC installation soon.

Most HVAC manufacturers require proof of annual maintenance when a repair claim is submitted under warranty. Some of the components that make your HVAC system work are fairly expensive, so investing in annual maintenance to keep them covered under your warranty can save you a significant sum if something goes wrong.

  1. Improve Your Air Quality.

The EPA reports that indoor levels of airborne pollutants maybe 2-5 times higher (in extreme cases more than 100 times higher) than outdoor levels.

Though we are not aware of it day to day, we share our spaces with a variety of substances that we would rather not breathe. These common indoor allergens range from dust that can contain dozens of respiratory issues to dander, dust mites, cigarette smoke, pollen, and mold.

Generally, preventive maintenance helps ensure that the warm or cold air pumping through your vents is as clean and well-filtered as possible.

  1. Improve Your Comfort

Regular preventive maintenance helps your system produce and distribute the warm or cool air more evenly and steadily. It also reduces the odds that you’ll reach your workspace one winter’s day to find frigid air blasting through your vents.

  1. Keep Your Spaces Safer

There are a lot of horror stories behind HVAC. From frozen or burst pipes to severely damaged houses due to cold snap or polar vortex. The cost of repairs in this situation can be incredibly steep.

Preventive HVAC maintenance also helps safeguard against the risk of carbon monoxide – the colorless, odorless gas whose effects can be deadly. The most common cause of carbon monoxide leaks is a cracked or failed heat exchanger.

An HVAC maintenance checkup typically includes a carbon monoxide test that would detect any potential hazard. Your HVAC professional can also talk to you about the benefits of installing a carbon monoxide detector.

  1. Help the Environment

For those concerned about their green footprint, keep in mind that a well-maintained HVAC system consumes considerably less fuel – and that’s good for the planet.
