If your commercial HVAC equipment was manufactured by a reliable company and was put in by a reputable, experienced installer, then it’s not a stretch to say that you can expect it to keep the air quality and comfort levels in your commercial space at an optimal level for many, many years. However, this doesn’t mean that you won’t eventually need to replace it when the time comes. Although it’s hard to really say when a replacement will be due, as each case is different, we do have general expectations. Here are some of the factors that might affect your HVAC system’s lifespan.
Maintenance schedule. If you want your commercial system to last as long as advertised, then you have to give it the care and attention that it requires. Even the most expensive commercial HVAC unit in the world can’t be expected to keep chugging along without proper maintenance.
This means scheduling preventive maintenance appointments and timely repairs with a licensed heating and air conditioning repair company. Preventive maintenance mainly includes changing your filters every few months and cleaning your air ducts, as well as replacing any worn-out components.
Installation quality. A high-quality HVAC installation can also add years to your commercial system. However, this goes both ways. If the installation was done poorly, it can also significantly reduce the number of years that your unit is able to function properly. This is why it’s absolutely essential that you work with an experienced company when it comes to installation and maintenance.
