It’s important to review your agreement with your commercial HVAC service provider if the end of the contract is nearly up. In addition to their quality of service, you need to make sure that they’re complying with industry standard maintenance practices. The last thing you want is your tenants having to resort to a portable AC unit because of service disruptions caused by non-compliance. In this blog, HVAC contractor M&M Heating & Air Conditioning shares the points to consider when evaluating your commercial HVAC service provider.
While this should’ve been checked before you hired your HVAC service provider, you need to ask again, as licenses typically expire. In addition to the assurance of compliance, a valid license means your HVAC service provider is up-to-date with current standards.
Maintenance Inspection Duration
A commercial HVAC system involves so much more than that of a simple portable AC unit. Typically, a complete HVAC system inspection takes about an hour to complete, if not longer. If it seems like the contractor conducted their inspection too quickly, chances are they overlooked more than a few roofing problems.
The contractor should ask you about any problems you may have encountered with your HVAC system instead of relying solely on their own findings. This provides a better basis for assessing future maintenance plans for your HVAC system. It also shows a willingness to address all potential problems with your system.
Your maintenance agreement should include safety inspections, as safety hazards are not easily recognizable by untrained personnel.
Equipment Performance Evaluation
Your commercial HVAC service provider should perform a thorough evaluation of your HVAC system. The results can give you a clearer picture of your system’s condition, which can help you make informed decisions when coming up with future maintenance plans. Your contractor should likewise review their findings with you. It’s important for property owners or managers to understand the condition of their commercial property so they can anticipate problems and know the corrective actions they need to take.
