Although the temperature is just barely starting to dip, before long, your business will have the heater running once again. But is your commercial heating unit ready to tackle the long winter months ahead? Ask yourself these three questions to help determine if now is the right time to think about replacing your commercial heating system:
Is your system over ten years old?
Much like residential units, the average lifespan of a commercial heating system is about 10-15 years. While proper maintenance will help to extend the number of years, there is a limit to how much taking good care of your unit will do. After about 15 years, it will likely be less cost-effective to run than in the past, and it will start to need more frequent repairs.
Are your heating bills higher than usual?
After you’ve been running your heater for a month or two, take a look at your energy bills. How do they compare to what you’ve been paying the past few years? Have your costs been going up, even though you haven’t been running the heat more? If you notice that there is an upward trend in how much it’s costing to keep your building warm, then it’s time to call out a professional to take a look at your system. Often, wear and tear over the years can lead to a decrease in efficiency, which translates to higher bills for your business. One of our technicians specializing in commercial HVAC in Burlington County can help you determine what the best course of action is.
Does your system constantly need repairs?
For any piece of mechanical equipment, it’s inevitable that it will need a repair every now and then. It’s common for commercial heating units to need repairs every few years or so as parts begin to wear down. However, if you find that you need to call a technician more than once a year, then it’s a sign that it’s probably time for a replacement.
