Think about some things around your business you have cleaned on a regular basis. You no doubt have the bathrooms cleaned often. You probably have professionals come in and do the floors on a schedule as well. Is there anything else? Maybe you annually clean out the company fridge. A restaurant may have the ovens cleaned and other industries have other unique cleaning needs. Yet, no matter what your business does, if you forget to say you regularly have your HVAC unit cleaned, you are missing something. Perhaps the simplest and most effective maintenance task for your commercial HVAC unit is regular cleaning.
Modern commercial HVAC systems are much more advanced and well-designed than comparable systems from even a few decades ago. Today’s units are often more efficient, quieter, and eco-friendly. That doesn’t mean you can just forget about your HVAC unit, though. Few people realize that they should be having their commercial HVAC unit clean periodically, just like their floors. Here’s why:
#1 It combats against outdoor pollution.
Where do you think your HVAC unit gets the air that is then cooled and circulated around your building? From outside, that’s where! These systems depend on clean outside air to help keep the inside air fresh. In cities, this can pose a problem because of the number of pollutants like engine exhaust, pollen, and construction dust that are present. These can accumulate in the HVAC system over time, but regular cleaning helps to reduce the issue.
#2 Mold, dander, and other indoor irritants damage your unit too.
Indoor pollutants are usually filtered out by a well-functioning commercial HVAC system. If the system has not been cleaned in a long time though, it loses efficiency and is less effective in removing these things from the air.
#3 Cleaning keeps your unit efficient.
A well-maintained HVAC system helps to provide a comfortable and productive environment, but it can also be very costly to run a unit that is breaking down. One way to help reduce your monthly electric bill is to have the system cleaned and maintained regularly. This way, your HVAC will operate at maximum efficiency!
#4 Pests need to be removed from the unit.
Ants, spiders, and other creepy crawlers like to find their way into an HVAC unit. Get them out of there! Regular cleaning is a good way to remove these unwanted pests and to ensure that the indoor environment you, your employees, and your customers are in is as clean as possible.
