When it comes to your commercial heating system, it is never too late to have it checked out. If you have put off your regular winter weather inspection, it is not too late to do it now. Even though it is cold out and you are likely utilizing the system daily, you should still have it checked out. Here is what you need to know:
You Need to Keep Your Staff and Visitors Safe
A commercial heating system needs regular maintenance to keep everyone in your establishment safe. If your system runs on natural gas, there could be the potential for a gas leak that you may not have been aware of without an inspection. As the system gets older, it has a higher chance of getting a cracked heat exchanger. Your commercial heating services contractor will look for any signs of damage or wear and tear as part of the inspection and make any necessary repairs.
Your HVAC contractor will also ensure the system is clean and free of debris. Excess dust and debris can possibly be a fire hazard. Not only will the inspection prevent a disastrous fire, but it can also help you pass an inspection with the fire marshal.
Inspections Are Healthy for the Longevity of the Equipment
Regular heating system inspections are necessary to lengthen the life of your equipment. Annual heating system checks prevent any unnecessary repairs from happening because all problems can typically be identified at the time of inspection and corrected in most cases. Without regular maintenance, you could have to replace your system sooner than you should have to. Even if you wait until the middle of winter, you should still have an inspection done.
Inspections Are Necessary for Warranties
In many cases, you need to have an annual heating system check done to maintain your system's warranty. If your warranty is still in place and you want to keep it valid, it is crucial that you have your inspections done. You do not want to have to pay out of pocket if you need a repair or a complete system replacement that could have been covered by your warranty. A commercial heating system can cost tens of thousands of dollars to replace, so you want to be sure your warranty stays intact.
If you have forgotten to schedule your annual winter heating system inspection, you still have time. Be sure to schedule an inspection with your commercial HVAC contractor as soon as possible.
