The 5 Essentials a Good Commercial HVAC Maintenance Plan Should Have
As a property owner, you know better than anyone how many moving parts there are within a single property. Making sure your commercial HVAC system is performing efficiently can occasionally get lost in the chaos that comes with owning a commercial property.
To ensure your commercial HVAC system is working properly and your tenants are comfortable around-the-clock, a preventative commercial HVAC maintenance plan is recommended—here’s why.
Why You Need a Preventative Commercial HVAC Maintenance Plan
Along with the peace of mind that comes with a preventative HVAC maintenance plan, you’ll also:
- Reduce the risk of breakdowns and emergency repairs
- Save money on energy costs because of better-performing equipment
- Improve your indoor air quality
- Extend the lifespan of your commercial HVAC system
- Maintain compliance with local regulations
- Keep your tenants comfortable 24/7
So, you know WHY you need a commercial HVAC maintenance plan, but what should you look for while shopping for an HVAC company? Here are 5 essentials.
Commercial HVAC Maintenance Essential #1: A Proactive Approach
In the field, we often see property owners dealing with emergency HVAC situations because of a simple issue that could have been caught and prevented if there had been a regular commercial HVAC maintenance plan in place. At Air Stream, we have a proactive approach toward HVAC maintenance. Early detection often prevents costly repairs down the road by allowing for the identification of potential issues before they cause major damage or shut down your entire system entirely. Scheduled maintenance can help you avoid expensive breakdowns by preventing small problems from becoming big ones! Scheduled maintenance calls typically include routine cleaning, inspection, and testing of all components in your HVAC system.
Commercial HVAC Maintenance Essential #2: Engineering Expertise
Ensuring your HVAC system is working as efficiently as possible starts with deep knowledge of your building. Understanding the infrastructure of your building, starting with its original engineering drawings, is essential in designing the best possible maintenance solution for your property’s needs.
A licensed engineer will not only look at the physical components of your system but also consider the environmental factors such as building size, occupancy levels and geographic location—all things that can affect how effectively your unit works year-round. Additionally, they will assess how well all operating systems are working together so they can make recommendations on how they might be improved upon or improved altogether when necessary.
Commercial HVAC Maintenance Essential #3: The Latest in Commercial HVAC Technology
As a business owner, you want to be sure that the HVAC systems in your commercial building are running at their peak performance. You also know that with constant use, equipment can break down and cause major issues that could put your business at risk. Using the latest technology to maintain these systems is essential because it helps prevent future problems and allows you to identify any issues as soon as they occur so they can be quickly solved.
Air Stream prioritizes advanced HVAC technology for our clients’ maintenance plans, using diagnostic onsite troubleshooting using hand-held devices and the latest HVAC technology for every maintenance inspection. We also provide automated solutions such as our Smart Building Controls, which can significantly increase HVAC system efficiency and cut costs.
