Regularly Have Your HVAC System Inspected

We’ve all heard that old saying “An ounce of prevention…” This is never more true than with a commercial HVAC system which, especially during the winter months, can be the lifeline of your business. A building that’s not heating efficiently or has a defective ventilation system will negatively affect both your customers and employees. In the case of a major malfunction like your pipes freezing, it may even shut down your operations for several days while a licensed plumber makes repairs.

3 Simple Tricks to Avoid HVAC Problems

1. Check your filters and temperature

Check that all your filters are clean and that the temperature on your thermostat matches the actual room temperature. If not, you will need to call a professional HVAC inspector to identify and fix the problem.

2. Have a heat pump installed

A heat pump is a device that circulates heated air throughout a building. It works similarly to an air conditioner and can be either air-source or geothermal.

3. Keep the thermostat under control

Dropping the temperature in your building by just a few degrees in the winter can save you a lot of money. This will also reduce the workload on your heating systems, making them less likely to need repair.

​Regular tune-ups are a minor business expense that can greatly increase the efficiency and lifespan of your current HVAC system.
