You know the old saying,
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”?
Benjamin Franklin coined the phrase in 1733 when he was discussing the reason that people living wooden houses in Philadelphia needed to prevent fires.
The principle still applies. Taking care of problems BEFORE they happen costs far less than managing a crisis after it happens.

The need for commercial Fall HVAC inspections
The “H” in HVAC stands for heating. Knowing what a hot summer it’s been, you probably haven’t been thinking about the need for heat, and I bet you haven’t needed to turn your heat on for months!
The problem with that is that you don’t know what’s happened to your commercial HVAC system since it was last used.
Thermostats can malfunction. Refrigerant leaks can occur.
Filters get filthy. Fans go bad. Frozen condensers can exist!
Before your system switches from cooling your building to heating it, you need a very important Fall HVAC inspection.
Be brilliant by saving money
An HVAC system can consume up to 40% of a commercial building’s energy budget, based on studies by the U.S. Department of Energy.
That significant portion of the energy budget can increase by up to 30% if a commercial HVAC system is not well-maintained.
Here’s the good news.
ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers) states that
“proper maintenance can save up to 15% in energy costs and extend equipment life.”
Look good when you save money on energy by keeping your system at maximum efficiency with routine maintenance and checkups, particularly a Fall HVAC inspection.
Be brilliant by keeping your occupants happy
Did you know that well-maintained HVAC systems have been proven to enhance occupant satisfaction?
According to the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), regular HVAC maintenance can lead to a 7.7% increase in tenant satisfaction.
Would you like your customer complaints to go down?
A study by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) found that comfort complaints decreased by 67% after implementing a comprehensive maintenance program.
As Jim Whorton, President of HVAC Excellence states,
“Regular maintenance of HVAC systems is key to both
occupant comfort and energy efficiency.”
There’s nothing worse than being in a building that can’t keep up with the heating or cooling demands of its tenants. Keeping them happy shows how savvy you are!
Be brilliant by preventing costly repairs with a fall HVAC inspection
Here’s where “the ounce of prevention” comes into play.
Early detection of issues during inspections allows for timely repairs and replacements, preventing minor problems from escalating into major and costly breakdowns.
FacilitiesNet reports that
“maintenance performed on HVAC systems saves an average of 12-18%
compared to reactive maintenance.”
BOMA found that building systems that are not regularly inspected and maintained are TWICE as likely to fail.
Be brilliant by extending the lifespan of your HVAC equipment
Regular HVAC inspections and maintenance help extend the lifespan of equipment, reducing the need for premature, costly replacements.
Just how much longer will the equipment last?
The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) states that proper HVAC maintenance can extend equipment life by up to 40%.
The Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA) recommends regular inspections to “double the lifespan of HVAC equipment.”
Either way, increasing the lifespan of your commercial HVAC system by 40-50% makes you a very, very smart person!
Be brilliant by following the rules
Compliance with building codes and regulations related to indoor air quality is crucial. Regular inspections help ensure that systems meet these standards, contributing to a healthier indoor environment.
Everything changed after COVID, and people are far more concerned about indoor air quality than ever before. For some tenants, the first question they ask before signing a lease is about the indoor air quality.
The EPA notes that indoor air quality can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outside air, making it critical that commercial HVAC systems filter the air. Proper HVAC maintenance improves indoor air quality and reduces the spread of disease by reducing pollutants, allergens, molds, and germs.
Be brilliant by keeping everyone safe
Run-down, poorly maintained HVAC systems are dangerous. They can spark fires, explosions, or electrical shocks that pose potential injury to tenants and huge legal liabilities for building owners.
Well-maintained HVAC systems are less likely to pose safety hazards.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends regular inspections to ensure proper ventilation and prevent carbon monoxide leaks.
Don’t be liable for problems that could be prevented with a simple Fall HVAC inspection.
