If you are a business owner or facilities manager, you will eventually have to make the decision to renovate your HVAC system. Your HVAC is such a vital component of both your building and business operations. So, while you are planning the installation of your new unit, make sure you do not make these common mistakes:

  • Neglecting other improvements

  • Do not go half way with the improvements you are making. While you are at it, go ahead and revamp other essentials around your building. Add insulation and fix any windows that leak air to increase your buildings efficiency. Since you are installing a new HVAC that is more efficient than your last one, be sure to make it worth the investment.

 
  • Partial replacement of your HVAC system

  • Do not take the easy route and only replace certain components of your system. This will lead to a mismatched system and will cause problems later down the road. Heating and cooling will be off, repairs will be frequent, and efficiency will take a hit. An HVAC tech’s job will be made harder as your unit would not be uniform throughout and cause for even more trouble.

 
  • Failing to Invest in a Maintenance Plan

  • Do not forget to talk to your contractor who is performing your installation about a preventative maintenance plan. Plan to have your system serviced at least twice a year. Also keep in mind how you place the component in terms of ease of access. Keep coils and air handlers easier to reach. A lousy tech will not make the effort to find the components and may neglect to service components that are not easy to reach.

 
  • Buying the same unit

  • Your past unit may have treated you well but consider investing in a unit that can better suit your needs. Technology in HVAC units has changed over the years and chances are, there is a better unit out there for your building. Do your research or talk to an HVAC expert about which unit is best for you and your needs.

Be sure to make all the necessary improvements, replace your entire HVAC system, and get the best technology available for your needs. An HVAC renovation is a big but important investment that you will benefit for the years to come. If you have any concerns, get in contact with a trusted HVAC contractor. They will be able to guide you in your HVAC renovation process.
