3 Signs It's Time To Replace Your Business's Heating And Cooling

Posted on: 9 February 2018

Your business's heating and cooling system should be a priority for your business. Not only will it keep your employees, products, and supplies comfortable and safe, but efficient heating and cooling will also conserve energy and costs. Of course, your system is not meant to last forever. Here are a few signs it is time to replace your heating and cooling system.

Increased Energy Costs

An estimated 33 percent of small business owners feel their heating and cooling encompasses the majority of their energy costs. Costs can vary throughout the year due the nature of your business and the actual weather. But comparing your bills from the current month to a previous year will help you determine if you are experiencing an increase.

If your system is not working properly, due to a malfunctioning compressor or leaking air ducts, it will struggle to heat or cool your business. This causes the system to work harder in an attempt to reach your desired temperatures, increasing the actual costs to heat or cool your business.

Abnormal Noises

Your system will make some noise while it is running, but if you are noticing strange, loud sounds, there is most likely an issue that needs to be addressed.

Grinding sounds may stem from a problem with the condenser belts or blower fan. These sounds are not only annoying, but the problem does require replacing the belt or repairing the fan blades.

Both of these repairs are possible, but they can be time-consuming and costly. If you are having other issues with your systems, a complete replacement may be necessary to ensure your business is never without proper heating and cooling.

Aging System

There is no end date for your heating and cooling system, but you should be aware of its age to protect its operation for your business. This is even more important if your business relies on heating and cooling for manufacturing purposes or to protect stocked supplies and property.

On average, heating and cooling systems should last around 20 years. Of course, the harder the system works, the more stress is placed on it. This increases the risk of repairs and early replacements. If you are having problems or your system is approaching the average lifespan age, consider investing in a new system for your business.
