If you own or operate a commercial property, it makes good business sense to ensure that you take care of maintaining the property. Sometimes routine maintenance tasks do not get addressed. This can result in property damages or expensive repairs. You may have a cautious mindset that ensures maintenance on your property gets performed as recommended. However, there will come a time when some equipment on your property will need replacing.

Some installations such as AC system installation may be sensible even if the equipment appears to work. This is because equipment that has reached the end of its lifespan could cost your company more to operate. The following points will help you to recognize telltale signs that you likely need a new AC system installation. 


If your warranty on the current system is nearing its expiration date, you need to start thinking in advance about purchasing a new system. Although untimely, you could end up in a situation where your AC system malfunctions in close proximity to the end of your warranty, which would leave you liable for your own repairs. A new installation prior to or on the expiration date can protect you against this type of mishap. Also, carefully consider if you have already compromised the warranty. Some warranties are considered void if unlicensed individuals perform service work.

Heat Issues Despite Temperature Setting

Pay attention to your employees. If they regularly complain about the temperature, it could be a sign that the AC system is failing. You could end up impacting the productivity of your business if employees get sick due to exposure to excessive heat. Some employees may need to leave work early. Others may have a form of heat exhaustion that requires them to take time off from work. Keep in mind that excess heat can also damage sensitive office equipment and cause damages. 

An HVAC contractor is a good resource to use to discuss additional ways to identify whether installing a new AC system is ideal. The professionals can help you every step of the way and ensure that the new system meets your needs and complements the outlay of your building. They can identify issues that may negatively impact the performance of a new system. Issues such as faulty ductwork and insulation can negatively impact energy efficiency. They can also determine if making other upgrades to your system can make your business operations run smoothly. Investing in accessories such as a smart thermostat can result in better energy efficiency and convenience.
