Be Proactive About Your Commercial Air Conditioning
There are a variety of factors that contribute to a healthy and productive work environment but, ultimately, the actual environment will play an important role in determining the overall success of your workplace. Keeping both your employees and customers comfortable is essential to your business, and a well-maintained air conditioner is your business’s key to doing so.
Benefits of Proactive AC Maintenance
Like any appliance, your HVAC system experiences normal wear and tear. Over time, this wear can build up and call for expensive repairs as parts become damaged, worn, loose, or excessively dirty. However, setting up proactive maintenance services will keep your air conditioner running smoothly and efficiently all year.
With regular maintenance, small problems can be quickly fixed before they turn into serious concerns. Sometimes, even small issues with your unit can lead to total system failures, so addressing issues as soon as they arise and actively caring for your unit with proactive maintenance can save your business from costly repairs. The benefits of routine maintenance include:
- Increased unit longevity
- Improved unit performance
- Reduced heating and cooling costs
- Healthier indoor air quality
- Minimized risk of needing emergency repairs
- Greener environmental footprint from reduced energy consumption
Establishing a consistent routine of commercial air conditioning maintenance can keep your business from experiencing issues associated with declining HVAC performance.
Don’t Risk Preventable Repairs
Your business should keep a consistent routine for commercial air conditioning maintenance with a service scheduled one or two times a year to keep your unit running at its peak performance. We recommend that you schedule services as the seasons change, once in the fall and once in the spring.
Preventative HVAC maintenance services tend to pay for themselves in reduced utility costs and controlled repair expenses, so while maintenance may seem like another burdensome expense, it is actually an economically sound decision for your business.
Don’t Stress About Your Commercial AC Repair
When the AC goes out at the office, it can be difficult to continue working productively. Employees and customers are both sure to feel the discomfort, which can cause less work to be completed and fewer sales to be closed. That’s why it is crucial to have fast and effective AC repair services whenever your business needs them.
Our team at Comfort Temp strives to meet all emergency needs quickly for your peace of mind through our 24-hour emergency service. If you’re in need of AC repair, call our team anytime at (352) 376-2366.
Signs That Your HVAC Unit Needs Repair
Neglecting your HVAC needs can lead to total system failure. At Comfort Temp, our priority is to provide total comfort for our customers, meaning that caring for your HVAC system goes beyond simply keeping it running. We strive to make sure that your heating and cooling systems are performing optimally to keep your utility costs low and your workplace completely comfortable all year. If you notice any of the following signs, your HVAC unit is likely in need of repair:
- An unexplained increase in your utility bill
- Difficulty getting your workplace to the desired temperature or maintaining that temperature
- Dust build-up or stale, stagnant air
- Trouble regulating the overall building temperature with different temperatures among the rooms
- Any leaks or excessive noise coming from your unit
If your business has a unit that is 10 years or older, it may need repair services. Like any machine, HVAC units become worn after many years of use, causing their performance to progressively decline. These units may be able to be repaired back to their former glory, but can often require a unit upgrade for you to fully reap the benefits of properly functioning heating and cooling systems. Air conditioners and heat pumps tend to last approximately 10-12 years, so if your system is approaching or past that lifespan, then it is time to consider investing in an upgrade.
A general rule of thumb for determining whether to repair or upgrade your unit is called the $5,000 Rule. If you multiply the age of your unit by the estimated cost of repair and find that the total is more than $5,000, it may be a better investment to replace your unit rather than repairing it. If the amount is less than $5,000, repairing your unit is likely the best choice.
However, if an upgrade isn’t an investment that your business is looking to currently make, our team of technicians can revamp your older unit in the meantime.
