Spring Season HVAC/R Needs

Spring is the perfect time to perform maintenance on your commercial HVAC/R system. After a long winter, your system should be ready for preventative maintenance to ensure it can keep your building comfortable and healthy. Springtime maintenance is essential to ensure your HVAC/R system operates efficiently, cost-effectively, and without problems. Here are a few reasons why springtime maintenance is so vital.

Over the winter, your HVAC/R system has to work overtime to keep your building warm. Increased operation time means filters, coils, and other components are under more strain than usual, which adds more wear and tear. If these components are inadequately cleaned and maintained, they can become clogged with dirt and debris, reducing the efficiency of your system. Spring maintenance ensures that these components get cleaned and are running smoothly, saving you money on your energy bills and extending the life of your system.

A well-maintained HVAC/R system is essential to your building occupants’ comfort. Spring maintenance will identify any issues with temperature control, airflow, and humidity levels, ensuring that your system provides the comfort your occupants expect. A comfortable work environment can improve productivity and employee satisfaction, making your building a better place to do business. 

Preventative maintenance is always less expensive than emergency repairs. Spring maintenance can help identify potential problems before they become costly issues. By fixing minor problems early, you can avoid more significant, expensive repairs in the future. Regular maintenance also extends the life of your HVAC/R system, reducing the need for pricey replacements. According to FacilitiesNet, the average cost to repair a commercial HVAC system is $700, while the average system replacement costs about $6,000 to $12,000.

Indoor air quality is another critical component of commercial buildings because many people spend a significant portion of their day in them. A poorly maintained HVAC/R system can lead to a buildup of mold, bacteria, and other harmful particles in the air. Spring maintenance includes cleaning and replacing filters, which can improve air quality in your building, reducing the risk of respiratory problems and other health issues. Many commercial buildings are subject to regulations and standards related to indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Regular maintenance helps ensure that your HVAC/R system is compliant with these regulations. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in fines and legal issues.

The importance of springtime maintenance for your HVAC/R system deserves emphasis. Regular maintenance can save you money, improve indoor air quality, ensure compliance with regulations, and provide a comfortable environment for your building’s occupants.
