A commercial heating and air conditioning system is very different from a residential HVAC system, and as such has very different needs. It has to heat and cool a much larger space, for starters, and must accommodate the specific needs of the business in question (computers that need to start cool, for instance, or a refrigeration system for restaurants and food preparation services).
Most importantly, it needs to do its job every day, winter and summer alike. A breakdown can be catastrophic for your business. Not only will it drive customers away and force your employees to work in an uncomfortable atmosphere, but it could damage key components to your business: spoiling food and causing problems for computer systems among others. Our hot weather here in Longwood, FL can be particularly punishing to businesses that lose their air conditioning system.
A good repair service can show up when you need it to to fix the problem, but we believe that an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure, and while repairs are all well and good, we’d like to stop those breakdowns before they begin.
The answer is a quality maintenance session, set up in advance and scheduled for once or twice a year. These aren’t strictly repairs, which are set up to deal with a specific problem. Instead, they give the technician a chance to correct all those little problems that can lead to breakdowns, such as loose bolts or screws. More importantly, it allows him or her to spot the signs of larger trouble that may be coming down the pike, allowing you to schedule a repair session to address it before it causes a breakdown and sends your day-to-day operations into a tailspin.
