It’s important that you keep a pleasant temperature inside your building, for the health of your employees, customers and visitors. A poorly heated building can not only feel unpleasant to work in, it can potentially affect the health of the people inside it. To maintain a pleasant temperature all year round, your building relies on a well looked after HVAC system.
Winter is a time when your building’s HVAC system will probably be getting a workout and it’s a good idea to put some good maintenance practices into place now. As well as helping keep everyone warm and cosy during the colder months of the year, a well maintained HVAC system will work better in the summer and you can reduce the risk of an air conditioning malfunction making your building uninhabitable in the warmer months.
Routine maintenance is an essential part of keeping your HVAC system in good working order and not only will it help prevent mechanical failures, keeping your system well maintained will help it run more efficiently, reducing your energy consumption and keeping your power bills to a reasonable level.
Your building maintenance provider should take a proactive approach to maintaining your HVAC system, including changing the condenser coils in your cooling system regularly and changing air filters. Maintaining clean air filters will help you maintain a good quality of air within, essential for the prevention and reduction of allergies.
If it’s been a while since you’ve looked at your building’s heating system, it might be a good idea to have it serviced. In some cases it can be more economical to replace older systems with newer, more energy efficient ones that will cost you less to run over the long term.
