Commercial HVAC Preventative Maintenance

Why a Preventative Maintenance Schedule is Important

“We recently had our air handler units professionally cleaned by Green Air Environmental. To date this year we have saved $48,505.50 on our electric utility bill for the Hospital. This savings has more than paid back the investment that we spent to have these air handlers professionally cleaned by Green Air’s technicians.”

Replacing HVAC equipment is a costly and exhausting process. And unfortunately, just like when you drive your new car off the dealership lot, your new HVAC equipment not only begins to lose it’s value shortly after installation, it also begins to lose performance. At Green Air Environmental, we’re proud to offer our clients an environmentally safe, and cost-effective alternative. Most traditional coil cleaning processes clean your coils using chemicals that are not only toxic to the environment, but also erode your expensive equipment over time. With Green Air, it is our goal to not only provide you and your facility with a safe cleaning alternative, but also to actually extend the life of your HVAC equipment. This saves you thousands over the lifecycle of your equipment. However, one of the biggest issues that many facility managers and building owners face, is having to perform emergency services on their HVAC equipment due to failure. This can be avoided by having a proper preventative maintenance schedule in place.

Preventative Maintenance

Unfortunately, in the warmer months, it’s a likely occurrence to experience HVAC issues or even failure if your equipment hasn’t been consistently cleaned and maintained throughout the year. If your HVAC equipment fails or begins operating inefficiently, your building occupants, staff or patients can be exposed to dangerous contaminants like mold, mineral deposits, and dust which significantly decreases indoor air quality.

To avoid this fate, Green Air is able to provide our clients with a custom preventative maintenance schedule by analyzing their equipment’s coil type, age, and usage needs. We also take into account the size of the building each unit will service, and your budgetary expectations. Having a PM schedule in place saves our clients the headache of being without proper air cooling, heating and ventilation.


Benefits of HVAC Maintenance

There are many benefits to consistently having your HVAC equipment serviced, especially in an academic environment. In fact, research has shown that academic performance plummets when students are forced to work in environments with poor indoor air quality. On the flipside, student attendance and mental retention skyrockets when they’re able to breathe clean air that’s pure and rid of contaminants like dust, mold and other allergens.

From an environmental standpoint, the benefits of using a chemical-free cleaning solution like Green Air’s specialized process is not only cost effective but socially responsible. Traditional coil cleaning organizations use chemicals that are bad for your building’s internal environment as well as the Earth’s. Chemical run-off is an ongoing problem that Green Air clients don’t have to face.
