3 Signs the HVAC System in Your Office Needs Maintenance

Running a business is tough, and we understand that HVAC maintenance sometimes ends up at the bottom of your to-do list. Skipping HVAC maintenance will lead to indoor air quality and comfort problems in your office. If you notice any issues like musty odors around the office or absenteeism due to illness, it’s time for commercial HVAC maintenance.

Your Employees Get Sick Frequently

When your employees keep getting sick, it could be a sign that your air filters are dirty or that there’s a problem with your HVAC system. Bad indoor air exacerbates allergies and in extreme cases can make you feel like you’re getting a cold. If everyone’s calling in sick regularly, it’s a good idea to give us a call to check your HVAC system as soon as possible.

Your Electricity Bills Have Skyrocketed

You haven’t invested in any new equipment or extended your hours, yet your electric costs have been steadily climbing lately. HVAC systems use a good chunk of your office’s electricity. When your electric bills increase and you can’t pinpoint a cause, it’s probably your HVAC system. As the system ages, or if you’ve previously neglected maintenance, it must work harder and harder to give you the same heating and cooling results. These factors inevitably lead to higher power bills.

Your Office Smells Musty

Have you noticed a musty or moldy smell in your office lately? That’s a sign that your air filters are dirty, your ducts need to be cleaned, or you have mold growth.
