Mechanical systems don’t last forever, including commercial HVAC systems. Upgrading your system can save money and give you access to new technologies that make cooling and heating your Dallas, TX, property more efficient. Here are some reasons to consider getting a new commercial HVAC installation.
Repair Costs Continue to Rise
Does it feel like you’re always having your commercial HVAC system serviced? If your building has an older system, mechanical problems will continue to mount, and energy costs will rise. If it’s getting expensive to maintain your building’s heating and cooling system, upgrading is a good option.
Improve Your Space’s Indoor Environment
You might think the only benefit of installing a new commercial system is less energy consumption and fewer repair costs, but there’s more to consider. As a business owner, it’s your responsibility to provide a comfortable, healthy environment for your employees and customers. New commercial HVAC systems reduce airborne contaminants, remove allergens and other particles from the air, and minimize the spread of airborne illness. Improving indoor air quality means employees get sick less often, use fewer sick days, and productivity increases—all good reasons to upgrade to a new system.
Your Existing HVAC System Releases Hydrochlorofluorocarbon
Refrigerants that release hydrochlorofluorocarbons, also known as HCFC-22 or R-22, is an ozone-depleting refrigerant that is no longer manufactured in or imported to the United States. Older HVAC units that use HCFC-22 and need to recharge their systems with the refrigerant must rely on stockpiled or recycled sources. There’s no law saying you can’t continue to use a commercial HVAC system with HCFC-22, but eventually, finding recyclable refrigerants will become harder. For these reasons, it’s a good idea to start shopping for a new commercial system that meets today’s standards.
