You’ve already implemented a number of strategies to improve your Mount Pleasant, Texas, business. But you may not have taken full advantage of a powerful ally in your quest to increase productivity and profits: your commercial HVAC system. However, you won’t be able to get the efficiency you need out of your commercial HVAC system without professional maintenance. Commercial HVAC maintenance improves your business by keeping your employees healthy and comfortable. It also decreases the money you spend on energy bills. Here’s how:
Your HVAC system’s efficiency can affect your employees’ productivity. A study from Cornell found that when a company increased office temperature from 68 to 77 degrees, typing errors dropped by 44% and typing output rose by a whopping 150%. You won’t be able to maintain a steady temperature and increase productivity in this way if your system is in disrepair. Regular commercial HVAC maintenance can help you increase productivity by reliably keeping your workplace at a comfortable and consistent temperature.
Reduce Operating Costs
When you’re trying to keep your workspace comfortable throughout the year, electrical and natural-gas costs can rise. If your HVAC system hasn’t received maintenance recently, it can experience inefficiency that will cause your energy bills to spike even higher. Those higher bills will then increase your operating costs and bite into your day-to-day budget. Commercial HVAC maintenance can reduce operating costs by reducing the energy your HVAC system uses, enabling you to allocate those funds to other areas in your budget.
Boost Indoor Air Quality
It’s difficult to be productive when you’re achy and reaching for a tissue every few minutes. You can encourage your employees to stay healthy by washing their hands and avoiding germs. But your HVAC system can also help you improve your workplace’s indoor air quality. Your heating and cooling system uses filters to catch dust, dirt and other pollutants that ride the air through your office. But without proper maintenance, your system won’t move air as efficiently, and those filters will clog.
During a commercial maintenance appointment, our service technicians can change your filters and clean the interior of your system. Repairing your unit and consequently improving energy efficiency will enable your system to more effectively move air. As a result, it’ll reduce pollutants along the way.
Avoid Expensive Repairs and Breakdowns
The last thing you need is for your HVAC system to suddenly break down in the middle of the day. Not only will the replacement costs put another hefty dent in your budget. It’ll also prevent your employees from being comfortable and cause indoor pollution to build up. While there will inevitably come a day when your HVAC system will fail, that day will come much sooner if you avoid commercial HVAC maintenance. Without maintenance, otherwise minor problems will escalate and cause damage that will reduce your system’s lifespan.
Scheduling commercial maintenance at least twice a year will help you catch otherwise minor HVAC problems before they lead to more expensive repairs or breakdowns.
Improves Energy Efficiency
Every demand you place on your HVAC system adds strain to the unit. Fortunately, your system can likely handle quite a burden. But over time that burden will reduce your system’s general energy efficiency. Reduced energy efficiency affects your utility costs as well as your system’s lifespan, its ability to maintain indoor air quality and its reliability in regulating comfort. Lower energy efficiency will also increase your business’s carbon footprint.
Commercial HVAC maintenance involves thorough inspections. Our service technicians can spot any problems that can add strain and further reduce indoor air quality. If that maintenance occurs on a regular schedule, our service technicians can catch those problems before they reduce energy efficiency too much. During a maintenance appointment, our service technicians can also help you further improve energy efficiency by teaching you energy-efficient habits that can lead to more money saved.
We understand that when you’re running a business. Therefore, every expense must be absolutely necessary. Do you want to save money for those other necessary expenses and increase productivity? If so commercial HVAC maintenance should be one of your necessities. To schedule commercial HVAC maintenance, call us at Wood Air Conditioning & Plumbing at 903-285-6550.
