When commercial HVAC contractors make mistakes, they can and usually do cost the company, as well as the customer valuable time and money. No wonder you should always be wary of the contractors you choose to care and maintain your commercial HVAC systems.
Choose the wrong commercial HVAC contractor, and you might live to regret this decision. In this blog post, we take you through some of the common mistakes that impact not only the performance of the commercial HVAC systems that you install, but the soundness of your operation and your reputation. Let’s get you started!
Ignoring Opportunities to Help Customers Improve Building Efficiency
As a commercial HVAC contractor, you have access to much, if not all of the inner workings of the building in which installations are being handled. Failing to address that could be discover during an install, such as poorly or even un-insulated areas.
The same goes for airflow issues and lack of air sealing. Uncovering and informing your customers of such issues, even if you don’t offer services to remedy them has the potential to help improve the overall job quality.
Failing to Consider the Building a System as a Whole
Any commercial HVAC contractor that fails to consider the whole building as a functioning system, in which HVAC equipment is but a single element, is not doing all it takes to serve the client. Keep in mind that HVAC contractors should never skimp on an in-depth analysis of the building as well as thoroughly discussing the customer’s needs.
After all, this helps increase airflow to an area where servers or other heat-generating equipment will be installed. Moreover, it ensures that air intakes are not going to be in an area where potentially unpleasant odors or potentially dangerous gases could occur.
The above are merely some of the common mistakes made by commercial HVAC contractors. As a business owner, you need to be wary of the above and other mistakes when enlisting professional help to look after your commercial HVAC systems. It is then that you won’t leave the door for mistakes open.
