A commercial business has the unique challenge of providing a comfortable environment for both the customer who enters the business as well as the employee who works inside the establishment. We all understand that a comfortable worker will be more productive, just as a comfortable shopper will spend more time in your business. If you own a business, you can’t afford to be without a reliable HVAC system.
How Long Should My System Last?
How long a commercial system will last depends on several factors, the actual business environment plays a big role as does how well the system has been maintained with regularly scheduled tune ups. As a general rule of thumb, with proper maintenance, most commercial HVAC units in Eastern North Carolina will last between 10 to 15 years.
Reasons to Consider Replacing an HVAC Systems
Newer systems improve the air quality as well as enhance the comfort of those who enter your business. With that in mind, if your older system starts to break down with costly repairs, or is no longer keeping your business comfortable, you may want to consider replacing it with a higher efficiency system. As technology advances, new systems use less energy than the older counterparts did in their prime. If your energy bills are increasing, your older system is most likely the culprit. Your HVAC contractor will be able to perform a thorough inspection and provide a recommendation on the type of system that is best suited for the size and needs of the business. Keep in mind that a system with the blue Energy Star rating is certified and backed by the Federal Energy Star Program to save both money and energy.
