Indoor air quality dominated the conversation in almost every industry when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. The hype for clean, indoor air is still at the forefront of people’s minds along with improved energy efficiency. Is it possible to have high-quality, indoor air while saving money on HVAC costs? We believe so! Allow us to highlight what you can expect in the world of HVAC in the future and how HVAC maintenance positively affects your company.
Trends to Watch for in the HVAC World
Let’s dive into a few trends that we expect to see in the HVAC world.
1. A/C & Electricity Demand Will Rise
Thanks to warmer spring days and hotter summer days, the amount of cooling degree days will continue to increase. Your HVAC system is forced to work harder and longer to provide relief to your building’s occupants. This results in more electricity consumption and higher electric costs.
2. More People Will Invest in Energy-Efficient HVAC Systems
Did you know that your HVAC system contributes to your carbon footprint? To decrease your carbon footprint, it’s important to use energy-efficient HVAC systems. In the years to come, we expect a shift toward smart thermostats and more energy-efficient HVAC systems.
3. More HVAC Technician Jobs Will be Available
HVAC technicians have vital roles in many areas in this industry – helping business owners save money, reducing carbon footprints, increasing the longevity of HVAC equipment, protecting the comfort of indoor occupants, and much more. Are you ready for the challenge and responsibility? We’re always looking for hardworking HVAC technicians to join the Hays Service team.
3 Areas in Your Company that HVAC Maintenance Affects
Allow us to highlight three vital areas in your company that will be positively affected when you prioritize HVAC maintenance.
1. HVAC Equipment
Can you imagine buying a car and only servicing it when it breaks down on the side of the road? That would be a costly and stressful approach to owning a vehicle. Consider that scenario with your HVAC system. The amount of money and time spent on your HVAC system in the “when it breaks, we fix it” approach is cringeworthy. When you prioritize preventive HVAC maintenance, your equipment will last longer and be more efficient.
2. Team Comfort & Productivity
Have you ever walked into a room where it is stuffy and warm? You can feel your body begin to get sluggish and tired. This is directly linked to the air quality and temperature. Keeping your HVAC system maintained and your thermostat at a comfortable temperature will directly affect your team’s comfort and productivity.
3. Company Budget
When you implement an HVAC maintenance plan, you can add it to your company’s budget. Say goodbye to skyrocketing expenses due to unexpected breakdowns! An expected bill to increase your HVAC equipment’s lifespan and protect your team’s comfort is always better than depleting your company’s savings account.
