What’s a maintenance agreement have to do with your office energy bills?
Do you have a commercial maintenance agreement? If not, and you’re looking at consistently increasing office energy bills, a maintenance agreement can help. Let’s take a look at two primary reasons why your bills may be higher than usual.
Reason #1: Employees and Space Heaters
If your energy bills are going up, it could be all those space heaters your staff is using under their desks and in their workspaces. If your heating system is not functioning properly and there are inconsistencies in temperature, you could have cold spots in your office building, causing your employees to resort to electric heaters to stay comfortable. This is where a maintenance agreement can help. Regular service and tune-ups in the fall before heating season starts to ensure even heating throughout the space.
Reason #2: Lack of Maintenance
When HVAC equipment goes for extended periods of time without regular service, its performance is going to suffer. Regular maintenance is the key to effective heating, but also to efficient heating. When the equipment is not running at peak performance, it’s going to have to draw on more energy to do the same job, increasing your monthly energy bills gradually over time. A maintenance agreement can ensure your HVAC system gets the TLC it needs to keep your office comfortable and your energy bills where they should be.
Don't neglect your commercial heating and cooling system; it needs maintenance as much as, if not more, than your residential system.
