Commercial HVAC systems are very different from the HVAC systems typically found in the average American home. For one, commercial HVAC systems are much more complicated. You may think that a handyman or a regular AC repair technician can service your commercial units, but ask yourself this: Do they really have the proper training and expertise needed for such a complex system? And can your business afford for your HVAC system to be out of action for an extended period of time?
In today’s post, Mechanical Technologies provides a quick breakdown of the qualities to look for when hiring a company to service your commercial HVAC system.
This cannot be stressed enough: there are plenty of air conditioning service providers out there, but not all of them are qualified to work on large-scale commercial buildings. With a residential unit, there are only a few things to worry about. When working with a commercial space, however, you have to think about employees, valuable equipment, inventory, customers and guests. If you hire an inexperienced company, you could potentially face severe interruptions and even damage to your business.
There are a number of certifications and accolades that reliable professional HVAC companies have that will give you confidence in doing business with them, but there are two in particular for which you should look. The first is from the Better Business Bureau, and the second is from NATE, or North American Technician Excellence. Before deciding to work with an HVAC company, be sure that they have certifications from these two bodies before signing a contract.
As mentioned earlier, a malfunctioning HVAC system can wreak havoc on your business, so if your system goes down, it’s imperative that it be fixed right away, no matter the time of day . Also, maintenance and repair services such as air duct cleaning and routine inspections should be done at night after business hours to cause as little disruption to your operations as possible.
