Why HVAC Maintenance is Important All-Year-Round?March 29, 2021
The heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system or HVAC is responsible to maintain the ideal temperature in your facility and ensure that the internal air quality is at a healthy level.
Preventative maintenance is essential to maintain the lifespan and performance of your HVAC system. Common air-conditioning problems can be avoided if you have scheduled maintenance of your system. It also helps you foresee potential problems before they become critical. You can plan a maintenance schedule with your facilities management provider for a smooth HVAC system throughout the year.
Let’s take a close look at why HVAC maintenance is important all year round.
Keeping your HVAC system at its peak efficiency reduces your bill manifold as the build-up of dust and harmful pollutants will force your system to work harder and use more energy.
Regular maintenance also extends the life of your overall system and reduce the likelihood of breakdowns, repairs and replacements. Repairs and replacements of HVAC equipment can be quite costly, so having your facilities management provider check your system on a regular basis can help address minor issues before it turns into a major problem. A building automation system will also be able to keep the health of your HVAC system in check.
Keep Air Quality at a Healthy Level
Mould and harmful bacteria thrive in a dirty environment, so keeping your air-conditioning system well-maintained is important to maintain the overall air quality of your facility. Poor air quality can be harmful to health, causing eyes, nose and throat infection and worst-case respiratory issues, so, it is always important to ensure that the air pumped out of the air-conditioning system is well-filtered and clean.
Avoid Potential Hazard
Missing your regular HVAC maintenance not only can lead to higher maintenance costs, but your negligence can lead to potentially hazardous issues including improper ventilation and even fire.
Reduce Carbon Footprint
The harder your system works to control the temperature in your facility, the more energy it uses and this means your carbon footprint concurrently increases. Your facilities management provider can also advise on the best system or equipment to use to help you reduce your carbon footprint as much as you can.
Ensuring that the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system in your facility is well-maintained gives you the comfort of knowing that the system in your building is running smoothly and you have taken the necessary steps to avoid any hazards.
