A commercial HVAC system in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex is sure to work hard throughout the year. For much of the year, of course, that system will be tasked with keeping the building cool while the sun beats down outside. Then, in the winter, things flip and the system needs to warm the interior to a comfortable level.
If you have been noticing lately that your commercial HVAC system isn’t quite getting the job done anymore, it might be time to ask when to replace your commercial HVAC system. But how do you know when the time is right? We’ll take a closer look at that question in the article below. If you would like to get help directly from our team when trying to make this decision, reach out to Walker Air • Plumbing • Electric and we’ll be happy to assist.
The Financial Perks for Your Business
It’s not breaking news that nearly all the decisions businesses make on a daily basis come down to money. There is no need to think about your HVAC system in any other way. This is a system consisting of pieces of equipment, and those pieces are just assets that serve your business by heating or cooling the space as needed. So, when trying to determine if the time is right to replace your commercial HVAC system, the only factor to weigh is whether that move would be in your best financial interest.
Spending more than you need to on monthly utility costs can add up quickly, as well. This is especially true in a large building. If you are spending hundreds more on utilities each month because your old system is inefficient, paying the price for new equipment is something that could be a net positive in the near future. Rather than trying to do this potentially complicated math alone, bring in the experts at Walker to help you run through the numbers and figure out what makes the most sense.
Troubling Signs for Commercial HVAC Equipment
What should you be watching for to give you an idea that the time to replace your system may be drawing close? The points below are a great place to start.
- More uncomfortable days. The primary purpose of a commercial HVAC system is to keep your indoor spaces comfortable. This is true in the summer, when the air conditioning will work to bring temperatures down, and it’s the same in the winter when the heat comes on to take the chill out of the air. So, if your system cannot get the job done to bring your space to a comfortable temperature, it might be time for new equipment. Whether the space is used mostly by employees or customers, making sure it is as comfortable as possible is a top priority.
- Too many repair calls. It’s inevitable that some repair and maintenance is going to be required to keep your HVAC equipment running correctly. That’s just how it goes. But if those repair calls are getting more and more frequent, and if they are getting more and more expensive, the time will be getting near to just replace the whole thing and start fresh. After all, the cost of just a few repair calls will be close to what it would have cost to just replace the system in the first place. In addition to the cost, the inconvenience of constantly needing to repair the equipment is going to get tiresome.
- It’s been a while. Like all technologies, HVAC equipment continues to get better and better as time passes. So, if it has been a decade or two since the equipment was installed at your location, it’s time to at least review that system and see if an upgrade would be worth the time and money. Even if the old system is working at an acceptable level, the promise of better efficiency and performance available from new equipment might be too good to ignore.
