Commercial services are vital for installing, upgrading and maintaining a commercial HVAC system. There is so much more than your employee's comfort riding on the performance of your HVAC system. As a result, you may feel the temptation to upgrade your HVAC system at the first sign of trouble. Here are four questions to ask before making that financial leap:
Question #1: How Much More Efficient Is an Upgraded HVAC System?
This question goes directly to the financial benefit of an HVAC upgrade. For example, let’s assume your current commercial HVAC system is ten years old and results in $900 a month in energy costs. An upgraded HVAC system is only expected to reduce your energy costs to $825 a month. In this scenario, it may be hard to justify an upgrade, at least from a financial perspective.
Question #2: Is Your Current HVAC System Under Warranty?
If your current HVAC system needs repairs but a warranty is still in force, it may make more sense to have the repairs done than simply upgrading or replacing the system. Depending upon the warranty, you could have a steep discount or even have some parts replaced for free.
Question #3: Has Anything Changed Since Your Current HVAC Installation?
If you expanded your place of business since the original installation of your HVAC unit, it's possible your current HVAC unit isn't big enough. As a result, it will become overworked during the peak summer and winter seasons. If this is the case, upgrading your HVAC system may not just be a good idea, but it may be necessary. Otherwise, a premature breakdown and expensive repairs can result.
Question #4: How Well Is the Current HVAC System Working?
If your business's current heating and air conditioning setup isn't providing the level of comfort your employees and customers desire, upgrading to a newer and better HVAC system may be a sound long-term investment.
