With temperatures outside continuing to cool down, you’re probably relying on your heating system to keep you and your employees comfortable. Keeping your commercial furnace tuned up will ensure your system is running well. It also helps keep utility costs down. Here are some reasons to get your tune-up scheduled right away.
#1: Regular maintenance minimizes your chances for a major problem with the system.
Pacific Northwest weather in the fall and winter means rain and cold. Your commercial building needs to stay warm, no matter what kind of crazy weather we get. Annual maintenance appointments with our team of experienced technicians at Specialty Heating and Cooling ensure your system is cleaned, inspected, and ready to tackle the cold weather. This reduces your chances of a complete system breakdown on a cold day. Not only is this stressful and uncomfortable for you and your employees or customers, but it causes an unexpected ding in your business’ finances.
#2: A tuned-up machine creates a safer workplace.
Your employees, the products you sell or create, and the customers you serve are your highest priority. But, with a faulty furnace or one that is simply unreliable, you could inadvertently create an unsafe working environment. If your heating system is neglected, there could be leaks or broken wires that could be dangerous. This could turn into a fire hazard or could even emit harmful gases into the air. Professional maintenance helps point out any problem spots and gets them fixed before they turn into a larger, dangerous, and expensive issue.
#3: Replace your old furnace.
If your commercial furnace is more than 15 or 20 years old, it’s probably time to consider a replacement. The machine is likely nearing the end of its lifespan and could also be using too much energy. Not to mention, if the system breaks down and you’re forced to come up with money for an expensive repair on an old machine, it may not be worth it. You could instead be investing money in a new machine that is reliable, EnergyStar® rated, and ready to keep you and your business space comfortable for many years to come.
