Commercial buildings require specialized HVAC units to maintain good air
quality indoors. Managing a commercial HVAC system takes knowledge, experience,
and the right tools for the job. Harvey W. Hottel is pleased to offer
commercial HVAC maintenance, repair, and system design and installation
in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC, to reduce breakdown risks and
improve efficiency so you can get more from your HVAC systems and concentrate
on business success, rather than your indoor environment and energy costs.
HVAC Maintenance: Savings and Convenience
One of the largest costs associated with owning a commercial property is
environmental control. Keeping your HVAC equipment in good repair is an
easy and effective way to minimize this necessary cost, while also improving
employee and client comfort and satisfaction through better indoor air quality.
- HVAC maintenance is an investment in your property and those who access
it every day. Servicing your commercial HVAC system regularly will reduce
the cost of heating and cooling your building for long-term operational
savings and maximum occupant comfort.
- Regular maintenance is the very best way to prevent costly HVAC breakdowns
that require time and money to repair. Because commercial HVAC systems
often sit out of sight and out of mind, it’s essential to ensure
these systems are inspected regularly so even small issues won’t
be left unaddressed.
- HVAC breakdowns can cost you more than just the direct price of repairs
or replacement—if your HVAC system breaks, it could cause additional
losses such as lost productivity, rent, or products as a result of poor
environmental control or air quality concerns.
Your Commercial HVAC System: Areas of Focus
Regardless of the commercial HVAC system you have installed, it’s
important to focus on its everyday needs, maintenance requirements, and
problematic areas to avoid the unpleasant surprise of an HVAC breakdown.
If you have questions about your commercial HVAC needs, Harvey W. Hottel
can provide personalized answers so you can make the right decisions regarding
your property’s heating and cooling solutions. Please call (240)
912-8900 in Maryland or (703) 839-8900 in Virginia to reach an experienced
commercial HVAC technician for more details.
- Commercial HVAC equipment is often located in separate storage areas or
installed on rooftops. Maintenance checks should include inspections to
ensure equipment is properly ventilated and rooftop attachments are in
good condition to prevent fire hazards or roof damage.
- Monitoring operational characteristics such as equipment temperature, oil
or coolant levels, and fan speeds and throughput can alert you to problems
that develop between maintenance visits. Taking action as soon as a change
in performance is noted, even if your system is not yet due for maintenance,
will reduce repair costs and prevent your energy bills from rising.
