We understand the importance of keeping your business at a comfortable temperature for all employees and customers. After all, comfortable customers are happy customers! Commercial HVAC systems are an essential component to maintaining optimum comfort levels.

Many businesses may be running an old or simply outdated commercial HVAC system without even noticing. Unfortunately, inefficient systems can cost your business more in the long run, thanks to increased energy costs and less-than-impressive performance levels in older models. Here's when to know it's time to call a commercial HVAC contractor in Dulles to upgrade your business's HVAC system:

Rust: Rust appearing in or on anything is never a welcome sign. It’s one of the top HVAC problems. If left unchecked, it can lead to leaks and system failure. This is usually one of the more evident signs of the system breaking down. In other words, when the system begins to rust, it is the beginning of the end.

Improper functioning: This refers to the decrease in the efficiency of the system. During the 15+ years of its functioning, the wear and tear occurring become apparent when the cooling or heating components cannot maintain the desired temperature for too long. In addition to this, one will also see a rapid increase in the energy bills at the end of the month.

Breakdown: The old adage “the stuff you don't see can hurt more than what's visible" rings true for HVAC systems. Fuses, filters and motors all have a role in keeping your home cool or heat - but they're not as simple to address when something goes wrong! In many cases with these repairs, it may seem like only one thing needs fixing; however, there could be multiple problems at play here so keep an eye out until everything has been looked into thoroughly before making any decisions about cost-saving measures

performance: The HVAC system is a vital part of any building, and it should be taken care of as soon as possible. A malfunctioning or inefficient system can cause many problems for an employer.

Non-compliance: The government has also been stern with the use and maintenance of appliances in residences and workplaces. Old or broken systems can release a variety of harmful gases while running. As per the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), the older models of HVAC systems before 2010 contain a harmful refrigerant known as R-22. This had devastating effects on the ozone and was therefore banned.

Your business deserves a dedicated and reliable team to service your commercial HVAC needs. While regular preventative maintenance and service can significantly extend the life of your commercial HVAC equipment, but eventually, all commercial HVAC systems will need to be replaced.
