When you run a business, you're always looking for places where you can cut costs. However, you need to ensure that you're not cutting costs in a way that will increase your expenses down the road. Preventative HVAC maintenance is an example of a critical up-front cost that can save you money down the line.
Here are five ways that paying for preventative HVAC maintenance protects your bottom line.
1. Preventative maintenance helps your HVAC equipment last longer.
Replacing commercial HVAC equipment can be extremely expensive. This equipment is typically designed to last for decades. But dirty components or undiagnosed small issues can lead to significant breakdowns that may require you to replace your equipment sooner than expected.
By paying for preventative HVAC maintenance, you help your equipment to last longer. And you defer that capital expense for new equipment as long as possible.
2. Maintaining your HVAC system improves comfort.
Your HVAC system keeps your customers and your employees comfortable. Regular maintenance helps to ensure that your system creates consistent and reliable heating and cooling for your business.
For example, if your ducts are clogged, the hot or cold air won't be able to circulate through your business. This leads to hot and cold spots throughout your building.
If you have the ducts cleaned as part of your preventative maintenance plan, you ensure that the warm air created by your furnace or the cold air generated by your AC can get to its destination.
3. Preventative maintenance helps you plan for repairs.
When you're facing an unexpected expense, you often don't have the cash on hand to pay for it. This is especially true if your business is on a tight budget or just getting started. To afford the expense, you may have to use credit which costs money in interest.
Preventative HVAC maintenance helps you avoid the stress of unexpected expenses. When the technician looks over your equipment, they can advise you of upcoming repairs so that you can plan and budget for them.
4. Maintenance safeguards air quality.
When the HVAC professionals maintain your equipment, they will change the filter. The filter removes dust and allergens from your business's air. Replacing it on a regular basis ensures that everyone breathes more easily.
Air quality may not sound like financial savings, but improving your air quality saves you money indirectly. When people breathe dirty air, they become sick more often. They can't focus as well. This can potentially decrease productivity and increase sick days.
5. Maintenance helps avoid closures.
If your HVAC breaks down unexpectedly, you may be forced to close. This can hurt your productivity and your revenue streams. Again, with preventative maintenance, you reduce the risk of unexpected breakdowns and closures.
