Stay Proactive with Your Commercial Building HVAC Systems
Building owners looking for different ways to manage costs may not immediately think of their building’s HVAC systems. But, HVAC breakdowns can be costly if you’re not monitoring performance. Not to mention that your system may be operating at subpar efficiency without your knowledge. And, if this utility cost is included in your lease agreements, this can really add up.
One way to avoid expensive performance issues is to sign an HVAC preventative maintenance agreement. By signing an agreement with a trusted commercial HVAC contractor, you can improve your building’s performance in several ways. Below are some of the many benefits of proactive maintenance for your HVAC equipment.
Improve Your Building’s Energy Efficiency
Your HVAC system accounts for about 40% of energy usage in commercial buildings. But, this number could be higher if your system is outdated or hasn’t been maintained by a professional.
From improving insulation to installing high-efficiency heat pumps, there are a number of ways to reduce equipment’s energy consumption. The right options for your specific facility and equipment will vary. Asking your HVAC technician for recommendations will help you get the best results.
Utilizing high-efficiency HVAC equipment can reduce your overall facility management costs by about 35%. These savings can help grow your bottom line and reduce financial stress. If you’re in the process of implementing more eco-friendly building practices, optimizing your HVAC systems is an important step.
Your building’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems will perform more efficiently when a commercial HVAC contractor performs regular, ongoing preventative maintenance. The BP Group specializes in optimizing your equipment to reduce energy usage.
Reduce the Risk of Equipment Breakdowns
Regular HVAC maintenance has been shown to reduce the risk of expensive equipment breakdowns by up to 95%. When mechanical engineers are keeping a close eye on your equipment’s performance, any fixes should be minor. These small bug fixes will be far less costly than dealing with a full HVAC meltdown and potentially a complete replacement.
Using advanced HVAC technology and analytics, we can identify and solve any potential issues. Even when your equipment is running smoothly, we continuously collect and analyze data to help keep a pulse on operational efficiency. This way, malfunctions are fixed long before they’re noticed by you or your building occupants.
As a commercial building manager, your time is valuable. HVAC breakdowns take time to fix and cause interruptions to your work day. This causes increased downtime and decreased productivity among your staff. So, HVAC maintenance expenses go beyond the cost of equipment and service.
Equipment breakdowns don’t always just happen during business hours. For example, if you’re managing an apartment building and your HVAC system fails at midnight in the middle of winter, this must be addressed immediately. With a preventative maintenance contract, our technicians offer 24/7 emergency HVAC service in NYC. Our team will assess and resolve your emergency at any hour of the day.
Extend Your Equipment’s Lifespan
With commercial HVAC installations costing $30,000 or higher, you’ll want to ensure that the system you have lasts. Luckily, HVAC equipment that’s regularly cleaned and maintained by professionals can last 20 years or more.
By signing an HVAC maintenance contract, our mechanical engineers at The BP Group will monitor your equipment’s performance year-round. We’ll ensure that your systems receive the care they need to last as long as possible.
We’ll also offer air purification and sanitization services to manage your building’s indoor air quality. This significantly reduces the chances that you’ll need a replacement in the near future. It also minimizes the spread of illnesses in your building, helping to keep building occupants healthy.
Stay Comfortable Year-Round
If you work in an industry like retail where customers are filtering in and out of your building, you’ll want to ensure their experience is positive. In the event of an equipment breakdown, uncomfortable indoor temperatures may drive customers away from your business.
Even if you don’t have a lot of foot traffic, your employees’ comfort is still essential to maintain productivity and overall happiness. Imagine trying to remain efficient in a freezing cold or steaming hot building. It’s unpleasant at best!
Indoor comfort can impact your technology as well as your staff. Office technology and machinery need to be kept in a cool environment with low humidity. Otherwise, you risk damaging or even ruining your equipment.
The best way to keep your employees, clients, visitors, and technology at optimum productivity, effectiveness, and temperature year-round is to have an HVAC preventative maintenance agreement.
