Why Your Commercial Building Needs HVAC Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure that your building’s HVAC system is safe, energy efficient, and reliable when you need it most.

When it comes to HVAC maintenance, your business can either employ reactive maintenance or preventative maintenance. Reactive maintenance is when equipment is only fixed when it is broken, while preventative maintenance ensures that your equipment is routinely inspected and monitored, so it continues to function well over time. As you may have guessed, preventative maintenance for your building’s HVAC system is the best option. At SEBCSI, our Mechanical Services team services and repairs all brands makes, and models of mechanical systems, including commercial HVAC.


In addition to saving you money in the long run, preventative maintenance of your HVAC system keeps your building and occupants safe, is energy efficient, and ensures that your essential HVAC systems are working properly all year long.

To ensure the safety of your building and everyone inside, your HVAC systems must be routinely checked and monitored. These inspections can save your workers from being exposed to unsafe working conditions, as any malfunctions will be found. If your equipment is not operating safely but was not inspected, it can cause a serious safety concern.

Energy Efficiency

Did you know that commercial buildings that use proper HVAC preventative maintenance use at least 15 to 20 percent less energy than building that don’t? When the equipment is inspected and tested for proper operation, this minimizes energy use over time. Also, when a unit is energy efficient, the HVAC system is more reliable. If you use reactive maintenance for your HVAC system, it is likely that you will lose money, time, and waste energy. If a unit is not clean or up to date, your general costs will increase.

Keep The Building Temperature Comfortable

The last thing that you want is for your AC to stop working in the summer, or the heat to no longer work in the winter. By using preventative maintenance, you are ensuring that your unit will work as we start to brace for cold weather. If you wait for the problem to happen before doing any maintenance, your building may be cold for weeks while you wait for the heat to turn on again.
