How Often Should Commercial HVAC Systems be Serviced

Similar to your business where your employees, managers, and administration each have to function individually in order to have a successful team, your commercial HVAC system must be made up of clean, operational equipment. Unfortunately, without regularly scheduled and proper care, your commercial HVAC equipment requires more frequent repairs. Ultimately, poor maintenance causes total breakdowns, which leads to a costly replacement. And no one wants that.

Douglas Cooling & Heating offers premium commercial HVAC maintenance to business owners across Birmingham, AL, and surrounding areas so your commercial HVAC units operate at the same high-quality level as your business. Our routine commercial HVAC service helps you maintain a productive workplace with healthy and happy employees all year round.

When Should You Schedule Commercial HVAC Maintenance?

As with your business’ vehicles, IT equipment, and other components, your HVAC system needs regular attention to operate at peak efficiency.

Although each HVAC system—consisting of air conditioners, air filter, and heat pumps—has its own unique requirements, you should generally schedule professional maintenance from our experts twice a year. The best time for maintenance appointments is the spring and fall before the extremes of each season come to Birmingham, AL in full swing.

A newer system that only runs for a single season, such as a furnace, may only require an annual maintenance appointment. But an older piece of equipment or a system that runs year-round, like a heat pump, needs twice-a-year tune-ups to ensure everything is in working order.

Our skilled technicians at Douglas Cooling & Heating can perform regular maintenance at any interval to ensure your commercial equipment always provides reliable heating, cooling, and indoor air quality to your business.

Why is Commercial HVAC Maintenance Important?

As a busy business owner, you may have an “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” mentality when it comes to commercial HVAC service. But investing in preventative maintenance can actually save you time and money in the long run. When your HVAC systems are cleaned, inspected, and repaired on a routine basis, they’re more energy efficient and less likely to experience major issues and breakdowns in the peak of cooling or heating season.

When you choose Douglas Cooling & Heating for your commercial HVAC maintenance, you’ll experience an array of benefits, including:

  • Extended equipment life
  • Fewer repairs and decreased repair costs
  • Lowered utility bills
  • Increased energy efficiency
