No matter what your business specialty may be, the HVAC system throughout your facility can affect your company. Lack of proper maintenance of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system leaves your business bearing the brunt of the inevitable consequences.
Generally speaking, hearing no comments about the building temperature mean it is likely that your ductwork functions appropriately. If you hear rumblings of the temperature being too hot or too cold inside your building, be aware it affects your business. When people are uncomfortably warm, it is human nature to get a tad cranky. Cranky employees who interact with your customers are not inclined toward a patient, understanding tone of voice or point of view.
Outsource Your Business Facility’s HVAC Maintenance to Avoid Headaches
As someone charged with facility maintenance and management, you have a pretty good idea which battles you want to fight. Undoubtedly, no one wins any battle against a dirty ventilation system. Moreover, any location that lacked the staff to clean the vents before your business moved in almost certainly failed to maintain critical pipes and ducts.
Ducts and pipes carry warm and cool air. Temperature fluctuations lead to condensation, even if only in small amounts. Naturally, that mixture leads to a warm, moist environment. Bacteria thrive in warm, moist environments. As bacteria multiply, mildew and mold forms in the ducts that carry air directly to you and your employees to inhale. Air filters are installed near the HVAC intake area, not where the air flows directly into your lungs.
Sane people do not deliberately inhale air filled with mold, mildew and other debris. Employees exposed to filthy air catch nasty lung and respiratory diseases. Regardless of whether you contract with an insurer or are self-insured, you already pay dearly for your current Workers’ Compensation Claims coverage. Picture the cost of coverage after a rating that includes past, present and future respiratory illness claims exposure.
Run from that problem as fast as you can. Outsourcing your facility’s HVAC management to a competent and reliable contractor is a sensible decision. After all, you breathe the same air. Reduce and eliminate problems for your business by calling a reputable company to care for your building’s HVAC network through proper and systematic cleaning and preventive care.
