Average maintenance costs, replacement costs and how to save money with maintenance plans
Your commercial HVAC unit is critical to the operation of your business. It works to maintain a comfortable working environment and visiting experience for customers. In some applications, an HVAC unit is integral for operations and production.
Keep costs in check when you invest in preventative maintenance for your current system and avoid early replacement costs.
Commercial HVAC Unit Replacement
Commercial HVAC units vary in cost, as equipment capacity, features and system type affect the unit’s price tag. Piping and ductwork needs, controls and installation labor all make up the final cost of commercial HVAC unit replacement.
Commercial HVAC systems can be highly customized based on the needs of the business, size of the facility and other factors, so there really is no average price for replacement.
When replacing your commercial HVAC unit, ask your contractor for a breakdown of costs so you can see every component affecting the final price. Ask questions about what is needed and the benefits you can expect from the product recommendations your contractor has made.
If your business is eligible, you may make use of the change in the tax code. In section 179, it says you may deduct the entire cost of a commercial HVAC unit in a single year.
This could allow you to upgrade your system sooner and free up cash from a lowered tax bill. This is a change from a deduction amortized over decades. For specifics, consult your tax professional.
Commercial HVAC Unit Maintenance
The best way to avoid the expenses of commercial HVAC unit replacement is to take care of the systems you have in place. Commercial HVAC unit maintenance is the best way to do this. Maintenance is proven to improve performance and efficiency. It helps users avoid breakdowns and other expenses of early replacement.
Commercial maintenance can be tailored to the needs of your business and your heating and cooling equipment. Our NATE-certified commercial HVAC experts work with your facility to identify the current and ongoing needs of your heating and cooling systems, set performance and energy consumption goals, and provide you with the maintenance solutions needed to help achieve them.
Estes Commercial helps clients execute preventative maintenance instead of reactive maintenance. This helps eliminate accumulating issues which burden your equipment and keep your costs in check.
Commercial HVAC unit maintenance costs also vary from one business to the next, because no two commercial HVAC units are the same, nor are the needs of the business. Commercial HVAC preventative maintenance is typically bi-annual, performed once in the spring and once in the fall.
A preventative maintenance service contract customized for your business ensures your systems receive needed care when appropriate throughout the year, plus offer reliability and savings. Expect to invest a few hundred dollars per year on preventative maintenance visits with an HVAC technician. Additionally, your business will have maintenance costs to cover filter changes and other needs, too.
Save Money with Commercial HVAC Unit Maintenance
Commercial HVAC unit maintenance helps your business generate substantial savings where your heating and cooling equipment is concerned:
- Maintenance improves system performance, reducing energy consumption. By boosting efficiency levels, your equipment burns less energy. This lowers your energy costs and operational expenses.
- Preventative maintenance works to solve repair needs before they lead to a system breakdown. Fixing small issues during a maintenance tune-up typically cost much less than when you’re calling for repairs due to system failure – which can also cost you productivity with a lack of heating or cooling.
- Maintenance works to extend the service life of your commercial HVAC unit, so your business doesn’t burn money on new equipment before expected.
