The Importance of Commercial AC Maintenance

The temperature of your commercial space’s indoor air can make or break a business. Customers won’t want to linger in a store that’s hot and stuffy. Tenants can’t live in housing where the air conditioner has broken down. The last thing you want as a business owner is frantic calls from employees after “business hours” that the commercial air conditioning in your building isn’t working. 

Just like with residential air conditioners, regular maintenance is the absolute best way to maintain your commercial cooling systems. However, you can’t rely on a residential HVAC company for this essential service. You need a team with extensive experience maintaining commercial AC and that team is us. Let’s go over the importance of commercial AC maintenance.

Skipping AC Maintenance Increases Energy Costs

If you own a business or manage a commercial property, you have enough on your plate without having to deal with unnecessarily high energy bills because your system hasn’t been maintained. In general, for every year that a commercial air conditioner goes without a tune-up, it loses about 5% of its efficiency. 

That means that regularly scheduled maintenance can help that system retain up to 95% of its original efficiency. When you consider how much a commercial AC runs during our hot and humid summers, that can add up to a lot. 

Increasing your energy efficiency has many other advantages. In addition to being more eco-friendly, when a system runs at peak efficiency, the inhabitants of your commercial will feel its benefits.

Avoid Sudden AC Breakdowns and Repairs

The top reason we recommend routine professional commercial AC maintenance is to prevent the unit from suddenly shutting down on your employees, tenants, or customers during a heatwave in the middle of the night. In other words, when it’s least convenient.

We’re not exaggerating when we say that annual maintenance can help you avoid up to 80% of the repairs your commercial AC system may ever need in its lifespan. Maintenance is the time when we get ahead of any potential issues with a thorough and detailed inspection.

We’ll check for parts that are wearing down or losing their lubrication. We’ll tighten connections, screws, and belts that are coming loose. When these potential issues are caught in a timely fashion, it’ll help avoid them becoming costly, major problems. The last thing you want to worry about is your equipment breaking down. Maintenance gives you the peace of mind of knowing that you’re doing everything you can to keep your commercial spaces cool and comfortable.

Scheduling Professional Commercial AC Maintenance

Professional maintenance is something that every air conditioner needs to have done on a routine basis. For most commercial systems, this only needs to be performed once a year depending on the nature of your business. For some businesses, or if you have a commercial heat pump system, twice-a-year maintenance may be needed.
