Your business is about to undergo a cold winter just as your home is. There are tons of commercial heating maintenance benefits that can make the job well worth the costs. We will show you all the maintenance benefits below.

1. Time is Money

You may have a DIY mindset. However, the time you spend maintaining your own heating equipment may well exceed the cost of a professional performing it. Additionally, how well do most DIYers know how to perform the following on their particular unit?

  1. Properly replace or wash filters.
  2. Test and adjust thermostat.
  3. Inspect unit on cycle on.
  4. Check all emergency pans, switches, valves, etc.
  5. Clean drain pan, lines, etc.
  6. Check for leaks or potential leaks.
  7. Inspect and clean coils.
  8. Inspect and clean fans, belts, etc.
  9. Expertly test electrical components.
  10. And much more.

2. Longer Operating Life

Your equipment is incredibly expensive. You want it to last well beyond its intended operating years, as opposed to breaking down prematurely. The best way to accomplish this is through regular, expert maintenance. In fact, the below is according to the Building Owners and Managers Association:

Lifetimes can often be extended significantly through robust maintenance programs that go beyond the norm.

3. Better Efficiency

In addition to longer operating life, a properly maintained heating system also uses less energy, which adds to your bottom line. This is especially true given that heating expenses make up the bulk of your power bill during especially cold winters (like the ones we have in the Washington tri-cities). Proper commercial heating maintenance allows the system to perform at its peak, just like a vehicle performing with a clean filter, no leaks in the fuel lines, and related issues.

4. Warranty Maintenance

Your equipment no doubt came with a long and extensive warranty that you want to adhere to. Many warranties call for regular maintenance to be performed by the proper techs in order to keep it valid. Be sure to review the warranty information for your particular make and model in order to ensure you are in compliance with your warranty.

5. Not Just for Heaters

Unfortunately, not all commercial heating maintenance is not done on the heaters. The following pieces of equipment also need regular maintenance:

  • Stoves and ovens.
  • Hoods and other forms of ventilation.
  • Exhaust fans.
  • Fryers.
  • Refrigerators, walk-ins, and reach-in coolers.
  • Ice machines.
  • And many others.

6. Better for Customers, Tenants, and You

You don’t want to get stuck in the cold when your heater breaks down. Heating maintenance cannot only help prevent costly breakdowns, it can help identify an issue before it happens. Just think of how much business you might lose with a non-working heater.
