Temperatures are expected to be record breaking for the month of May as the end-of-week heat wave approaches. The long-awaited sun is preparing to show face. There are a few key reasons why a maintenance agreement will benefit operational efficiencies and keep HVAC equipment up to standard and running efficiently during the next few critical months.

Increase Equipment Operation Life

Budgeting for a new HVAC system can be quite costly for a company, however it is important to protect your investment. The importance of eyes on the future is important to the success and longevity of a project investment. A properly maintained system can increase the overall efficiency of equipment which will save in the long run. There is nothing more important than the correct maintenance on an HVAC unit, besides the correct installation. If your equipment is going without the proper maintenance there is a high risk of failures which shorten the length of equipment life. It is best to have maintenance performed on equipment at least 3 times a year depending on the type, size, and location of the equipment.

Secure Critical System Performance

How costly would it be to your business if your HVAC equipment went down? If your equipment plays a critical role in your company’s’ productivity it might be time to look at the services and customizable options available to fit your needs. This includes mission critical data centers. Today’s mission critical facilities, such as telecommunication sites, hub sites, disaster recovery sites, and downtime is something threatening. Comfort cooling units can also make a major impact on the productivity of employees. Heat related illnesses can occur without proper temperature regulation due to equipment failure:

  • Heat exhaustion – is the body’s response to loss of water and salt from heavy sweating. Signs include headache, nausea, dizziness, weakness, irritability, thirst, and heavy sweating.
  • Heat cramps – are caused by the loss of body salts and fluid during sweating. Low salt levels in muscles cause painful cramps. Tired muscles—those used for performing the work—are usually the ones most affected by cramps. Cramps may occur during or after working hours.
  • Heat rash – is skin irritation caused by sweat that does not evaporate from the skin. Heat rash is the most common problem in hot work environments.

Customizable to Each Facility Specific Needs

One facility may not have the same operational needs as another. If you are a manager of multiple facilities it is known that there might be less strenuous conditions at one site in comparison to another. To make sure that each site is receiving the adequate amount of TLC a program that maximizes system efficiency while harmonizing within today’s environmental green mandates can contribute to your building’s operational goals.
