Various commercial and industrial buildings have different heating and cooling needs. After all, machine shops and computer server rooms need to either be kept cold or heated as necessary, especially as the seasons change. However, since summer is coming, getting the proper air conditioning inside all of your facilities is essential. So if you oversee industrial HVAC equipment, you need to figure out how to make it last as long as possible.
Finding High-Quality Components
Higher-quality components may be more expensive at first, but this higher cost is worth it. It means that you won’t have to worry about maintenance and repairs as often as with lower-quality components for your industrial HVAC equipment. After all, industrial and commercial buildings ask much more of their HVAC systems than homeowners in residential settings do. Plus, with extended warranties in place, you will find that the cost of upkeep over time will either drop or will pay for itself. Choosing lower starting costs may not always pay off – however, performing a Total Cost of Ownership, or TCO analysis may be in your best interests.
Choosing a Contractor
Once you have selected the machinery you would like to install or the upgrades that you want, it’s time to find the right contractor for the job. Commercial leaders, business owners, and facility managers might not have the knowledge or skills to implement the changes themselves, and that’s not something to be ashamed of; that’s why HVAC contractors can get the job done safely and efficiently. Without the correct installation and maintenance techniques, the industrial HVAC equipment you have won’t reach its full potential.
Beginning a New Service Agreement
Now that you have found a contractor to work on your industrial HVAC equipment, the time has come to sign a new service agreement. This takes the trust between you and the technician to the next level since it forms the basis of a contract. Chillers, boilers, cooling towers, and air handlers are all inspected by the technician and given a tuneup if necessary. As part of the agreement, the following components are also inspected and maintained as needed:
- Air filters
- Evaporators and condenser coils
- Fans, belts, and bearings
- Air intakes and ductwork
- Caulking, dampers, and air ducts
