Well-functioning commercial heating systems are the lifeblood of your building, whether you’re running a hotel, apartment building, resort or office building. These systems are expensive to repair and replace, and downtime can do irreparable damage to your brand and reputation, so it’s important to ensure that they run at optimal efficiency for many years in order to keep operational costs down and profits up. So, what’s the secret?

It’s Simple: Regular, Professional Maintenance

Businesses with commercial heating systems and domestic hot water systems have two central goals regarding these systems – that they are reliable and cost-effective to run. Regular maintenance by commercial heating systems professionals is the single most effective way to achieve both these goals at the same time. According to this study, this type of maintenance can save HVAC energy costs by 5-40% depending on your HVAC system and its application – yet around 55% of companies let their HVAC system run until a problem occurs rather than ensuring it is regularly serviced and professionally maintained.

Why Does a Lack of Maintenance Lead to Reduced Lifespan?

Breakdowns and inefficiencies in HVAC and domestic hot water systems are a well-known result of a lack of maintenance. Small and often inexpensive maintenance issues like dirty filters or scale build-up can lead to bigger problems like blockages, leaks or overheating systems that then have to be shut down temporarily. Although these will take more time to repair and incur a greater cost than preventative maintenance, many people don’t realize that it actually reduces the lifespan of your equipment too. 

Damaged parts can be replaced – but this doesn’t make your system as good as new. The stress and strain that lack of maintenance puts on your HVAC or domestic hot water system causes wear-and-tear on the system as a whole, and especially on key components. These parts of the system – although they may be functional now – will be more likely to fail earlier due to the high stress levels on the equipment. This means that your heating system which should last you 15-20 years with preventative maintenance, may fail much, much earlier – and your building will require a costly replacement system earlier than it should.
