Commercial HVAC Preventative Maintenance
Can your facility’s air conditioner handle the summer heat? Can its furnace survive the frigid winter chill? Don’t risk an emergency breakdown that will force everyone in your office to sweat or freeze until help arrives. Professional, regularly-scheduled preventative maintenance check-ups are the best way to prevent unexpected heating and air emergencies and save your business money in the long run.
Our preventative maintenance packages include routine maintenance procedures (such as replacing air filters) and a complete inspection of your entire commercial HVAC system. We are also able to inspect your building’s plumbing and drainage to ensure that all systems are running smoothly.
How often does preventative maintenance occur?
Generally, preventative HVAC maintenance occurs twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. However, buildings which are older and more susceptible to damage may require multiple inspections per year. If your business has several floors or an extremely large square footage, we recommend three or inspections per year.
