What Preventative Maintenance is

Preventative HVAC maintenance is performed as a routine checkup, usually at certain times of the year, such as spring and fall, to ensure everything is running properly and adjusted for potential season changes. Maintaining various components of your commercial HVAC system will ensure that your building’s air conditioning and heating needs are met year-round.

Your commercial HVAC system’s preventative maintenance plan will be customized to your business objectives, risk tolerance, and manufacturer’s recommendations. Our industry experience allows us to create tailored plans that keep your HVAC system running as efficiently as possible while considering your other business and building needs.

Examples of preventative maintenance include cleaning air ducts and condenser coils, tightening electrical connections, and changing air filters.
