Prevent water damage
Water leaks from air conditioning systems can cause expensive damage to walls, floors, furnishings and decorative finishes. This not only saves on structural repairs but the possibility of inflated insurance premiums.
HVAC maintenance helps to prevent water leaks with regular drain line cleaning and preventative pan treatment.
Air Quality and Efficiency
Filters need to be cleaned or replaced periodically. For most commercial systems, filters need attention four to six times a year.
Your air conditioning system has two types of coils with sensitive fins that are responsible for removing heat from the air in your space and releasing excess heat outside the building. The coils can get coated with dust and grime (especially the ones located outdoors), which makes it harder for them to transfer heat.
Our HVAC maintenance plans include cleaning the coils to keep them working properly.
Check for refrigerant leaks
Even a slow refrigerant leak can become costly over time. Regular leak checks can help find and repair the leak to prevent costly refrigerant refills in the future.
Prevent voiding the warranty
Some HVAC equipment manufacturers require periodic maintenance as a condition of the warranty.
Neglecting maintenance will mean that your warranty claim will be denied if you end up having a problem with your equipment.
That’s why it’s smart to keep records of your maintenance visits, especially if your equipment is still under factory warranty. A planned maintenance schedule takes the work out of keeping track of work performed.
Keep your NEW equipment in peak condition
Even with new equipment, an HVAC maintenance plan ensures that your equipment gets serviced regularly and stays in “like new” condition for much longer than equipment that’s neglected. That means fewer breakdowns, better efficiency and reduced energy consumption, a longer lifespan, and better comfort conditions for your employees or residents.
Preventing an emergency breakdown = preventing costly product loss.
Regular inspections and maintenance can help spot trouble areas before the equipment goes down and you lose an entire shipment of ice cream or meat. Investing in the relatively small cost of regular maintenance means you won’t face much larger commercial refrigeration repair bills later.
Avoid mold and contaminated ice.
Spotted and smelly ice can drive your customers away in a hurry and can even make them sick. Neglected ice machines can carry bacteria and viruses including Salmonella, Listeria and E. coli. In the worst case, you can end up with health code violations and even lawsuits.
Reduce energy bills.
Maintaining your commercial refrigeration equipment can save between 5 and 10 percent on energy costs by keeping the units running at peak performance.
Extend the life of your commercial refrigerators and freezers.
Regular cleaning and maintenance not only make your commercial refrigeration equipment work more efficiently, but it also helps it last longer.
Take good care of your commercial refrigeration equipment, and it will take good care of you.
