Do I Really Need Commercial HVAC Maintenance? Yes, You Do

Spring is just around the corner, and that means it is also time for seasonal HVAC maintenance. Unfortunately, many businesses never call us because they feel that it’s not that important. If you are one of those people, we have some pretty convincing reasons why routine maintenance is actually very essential.


#1. It Reduces Energy Consumption

Constellation Energy Resources explains that inflation and rising energy costs are among small-business owners’ most significant challenges. Since heating and cooling accounts for a high percentage of your monthly energy bill, having an efficient HVAC system is crucial.

Well-maintained equipment will naturally require less energy to run, and soaring energy costs are often the first indicator that something is wrong. If you’re experiencing higher-than-normal energy bills, you will likely notice a significant decrease after our service techs perform a tune-up.


#2. Can Prevent Future Repairs

You wouldn’t forego maintenance on your company’s fleet of vehicles. Most people agree that regular servicing helps prevent breakdowns and allows your equipment to last longer. At the same time, that logic is rarely applied to a business’s heating and cooling system.

Unexpected heating and cooling repairs could quickly derail your budget and bring with it a whole host of other problems. For example:

  • Customers may avoid coming in because they do not feel comfortable
  • Employee problems such as increased absenteeism or lowered production may occur
  • Burst pipes or poor humidity levels could cause damage to your structure and/or equipment.


Commercial HVAC maintenance works much like an insurance policy in that it helps safeguard you against the unexpected. If you don’t yet have a plan, your business isn’t covered. Rather than hoping nothing bad will happen, contact South Jersey Heating and Cooling instead.


#3. Improves Indoor Air Quality

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air contains two to five times as many pollutants as outdoor air. In turn, indoor pollutants can lead to health problems such as headaches, dizziness, respiratory problems, and fatigue. You may even experience more call-outs than normal, particularly whenever the seasons change.


You can’t always control the number of pollutants inside your facility. But what you can control is the number of dust particles and allergens that pass through your ductwork. You can do so by having your unit cleaned and maintained regularly. Along with monthly filter changes, it’s the best way to ensure the best indoor air quality possible.


#4. It Helps your Equipment Last Longer

On average, commercial heating and cooling systems can last between 10 and 15 years. How long yours lasts will largely depend on how well it’s taken care of. Equipment that receives regular tune-ups and maintenance will naturally have a longer life expectancy. So instead of budgeting for a life-cycle replacement, plan for a maintenance agreement with South Jersey Heating and Cooling instead.

#5. More Pleasant Operations
No one likes being distracted by loud HVAC equipment or units that continuously cycle on and off. With routine maintenance, we can hopefully reduce or eliminate these problems so they do not disrupt your workday. In fact, regular servicing can often eliminate a number of problems, such as hot and cold spots too.
