No business can operate effectively without a functional commercial HVAC system – it’s one of the foundations of a productive, clean and comfortable commercial space. So, when is the right time to consider upgrading this crucial workhorse? Here are the best reasons:

  1. Operating costs are too high for comfort: Low operating costs are a key factor in running a building and, as HVAC systems get older and more out-of-date, the running expenses – from energy costs to repair bills – start getting higher. When these costs get too high for comfort, it’s best to start looking at more energy-efficient options to save costs in the long-term.
  2. Workplace comfort and air quality may become compromised: A good HVAC system ensures delivery of clean air at a comfortable temperature throughout the building. Hot or cold spots, unpleasant smells, noise and stuffiness are all signs that your existing HVAC system simply isn’t working like it used to. This affects the productivity, health and comfort of everyone in the building, and indicates that it’s a good time to start looking at new systems. The last thing any business wants is downtime relating to an HVAC system that’s finally given up the ghost.
  3. You’re renovating your building: If your older building is going through a retrofit, now is the perfect time to replace old HVAC equipment with a system that is properly designed and installed to suit your new layout, with minimal interruption. This is especially important if you are expanding the building at the same time, because your system needs to be able to supply the new square footage.
  4. Your system is too old: Commercial HVAC systems have a lifespan of 10-15 years and may reach 20 years if maintained properly. If your system is reaching the end of its lifespan, it’s recommended that you start planning to invest in new equipment. Not only will this prevent a scenario of a complete breakdown, but it should also bring in long term benefits in terms of energy-efficiency, reduced maintenance costs and greater comfort.
