Commercial HVAC systems typically have a life expectancy of around 15 to 20 years, depending on how the HVAC units are utilized and maintained. In this article, Perfect Degree HVAC discusses some of the factors that can affect the lifespan of commercial HVAC equipment.
The size of the HVAC unit. Larger HVAC units have more parts, which increases the risk of potential issues with the system. It’s important to have the correct size of HVAC unit for your building. If it’s too small for your business or location, the unit will have to work too hard to meet your heating and cooling needs. This will make the system inefficient, which can cause the equipment to break down more quickly.
Maintenance. Preventive maintenance is a must for any HVAC equipment. It plays a significant role in prolonging the lifespan of an HVAC system, so it should be done properly and regularly. If routine maintenance is neglected, issues within the system could develop and damage the equipment. To ensure that you won’t forget or skip maintenance checks, you might want to subscribe to a maintenance program. Many HVAC companies offer HVAC maintenance contracts to help you stick to your commercial HVAC system’s maintenance schedule.
Quality of installation. When HVAC systems are correctly installed, they’re able to function the way they’re supposed to. The components are able to work with each other, thus preventing issues while the unit is operating. Of course, when various parts are compatible with each other and they work without issues, the system becomes less prone to damage.
