Colorado is known for its fluctuating weather patterns. It can be cold one day, hot the next, and everything in between.
Those sudden temperature fluctuations can be hard on your HVAC equipment. Commercial HVAC equipment can last 15 to 20 years, but that depends on a variety of things. Your commercial air conditioner takes a lot of abuse throughout the year. Is it up for the job? Or is it time to replace?
By upgrading now before the heat of the summer sets in, you can gain:
Having air conditioning isn’t just about comfort, it’s also about safety. Imagine sweltering in a several story building without cooled air – it would be miserable at best. If you’re the property manager, your tenants count on having a comfortable spot to perform their work functions. You can’t open up a window for a cross breeze on the twentieth floor.
Older technology can’t always keep up with today’s demands. Equipment wears down, and it’s hard to bring it up to today’s expectations. Plus, today’s technology allows you to control temperature easier with variable speeds and stronger systems that help your HVAC unit do more.
HVAC accounts for about 40 percent of the expenses needed to operate a commercial property. That means anywhere you can save, it will help you control costs on your bottom line.
Newer technology allows property managers to heat and cool buildings more efficiently than ever before. You can do it via an app, meaning you can check in on how it’s operating from anywhere where you have internet connection. You can see the efficiency through reports that will help you curb costs even further.
Greater health benefits
Sick building syndrome isn’t something to mess around with. It’s a growing problem the EPA takes seriously. When a building remains enclosed, relying on the HVAC system for heated, cooled, and fresh air, it’s imperative to ensure the air flows correctly.
New equipment is specifically designed to help you filter out pollutants and contaminants. It also helps you control bacteria growth which can impact viruses and other health problems. Today’s workers are more concerned than ever before about how indoor air quality affects their health. An upgrade in technology can send a signal to tenants that you’re doing all you can to help control air quality.
It sounds counterintuitive to spend money on a new air conditioner in order to save money overall. Yet if you’re tired of unexpected costly repair bills, a new air conditioner can deliver you cost savings with peace of mind.
A new air conditioner also comes with a new warranty. That provides you with guarantees over the next few years, as well as a reduced risk of having the equipment break down at the most inopportune times.
