Three Major HVAC Mistakes Most Companies Continue to Make


Commercial services may be necessary for companies who continue to make the following HVAC mistakes.

In the best situation, making an HVAC mistake costs money, but in the worst case, a mistake could require emergency commercial services and result in lost business. If your heater or air conditioner isn't working properly, there's a chance it's because you're making one of the following mistakes:

Not Getting Regular Maintenance

This is probably the biggest and most common mistake business owners make concerning their commercial HVAC system. Unlike most residential units, commercial units are larger and more powerful. This means they're a more expensive investment and if something were to go wrong, the consequences could be more severe.

Therefore, ensuring a properly running HVAC system is very important. At the very least, an air conditioner or heater that is offline during a heat wave or cold snap can result in uncomfortable employees and possibly lost business when customers leave the building. And if you wait until something breaks down, the repair costs are often more expensive. This is because regular maintenance could have prevented the problem or identified it much earlier, resulting in a cheaper fix.

Refusing to Update the HVAC Unit

Getting a new HVAC system isn't cheap, and it's usually a capital investment for most companies. As a result, a business owner may not always have the cash available for a new HVAC unit. But by not upgrading an ancient HVAC unit, the business owner could spend more money in the long run. This is due to the old unit being vastly less efficient than newer HVAC models and money devoted to constant repairs of the old HVAC unit.

Closing Air Vents to Save Energy

If you have an unused area of your office, you may think closing the vents to that area will save energy. Not so. In fact, closing an air vent may cost you more money because an HVAC system with hindered air flow can make the air handler work harder, which in turn, uses more energy.

If you want to upgrade an old HVAC unit or conduct some routine maintenance of your HVAC system, you’ll need commercial services. A great provider of these services is our team of experts at Jerry’s Air Conditioning and Heating, so get in touch with us today to learn more.
