Air conditioning is not an option in the area where I live. It installed in every single commercial and public building. I cannot imagine spending any time in a location that did not have an air conditioner. If a business wants to prosper, it needs to have a working HVAC system so that customers and employees are comfortable. I think that many business owners, however, have not realized the importance of HVAC maintenance. They assume that they’re saving money by avoiding the cost of service for their HVAC systems while it seems to be working fine. But this leads to costly problems. I once was employed in an office building where the HVAC component was definitely neglected. When it malfunctioned, the manager put off calling for repair for three weeks. My co-workers and I were unhappy and uncomfortable during this time. We did not get much of anything accomplished without an air conditioner. I found this whole experience reason enough to quit that job. If I was the one responsible for maintaining a commercial space, I would make the service of the HVAC system a top priority. The monthly energy bills are a major part of the budget. Keeping the heating and cooling unit working at peak energy efficiency only makes sense. Plus, preventative service helps to avoid sudden malfunctions, safety risks, elevated sound levels, degraded air quality, and diminished comfort. It fulfills the requirements of the manufacturer’s warranty and definitely saves money in the long run. There’s a reason that all manufacturers recommend annual, professional service.
