Ways You Can Keep Your Rooftop Unit in Good Condition

Prepare the rooftop unit of your business by:

  • Getting ready for the colder weather: Check the weather updates regularly when you anticipate snow, and be sure to have a ladder and shovels so you can remove any buildup. Allowing snow to gather on or around your unit could compromise the airflow and overall efficiency.
  • Inspecting your equipment and looking for any signs of trouble: It’s always wise to address problems before they arise—but if you can’t catch them early enough, try to handle them as soon as you discover them. Routine inspections help prevent further damage and reduce the risk of expensive repairs.
  • Scheduling a maintenance visit: It’s important to opt for professional maintenance services at least once a year, especially prior to the change of season. Contact our experts for a routine maintenance visit to ensure the smooth operation of your rooftop HVAC unit. Our professionals will perform the appropriate services so your heating and cooling system will run efficiently for the season ahead and beyond.

By having maintenance performed on your HVAC and supporting optimal efficiency, you could save up to 20 percent on your energy bill, according to the Building Efficiency Initiative. Enjoy having a commercial HVAC unit working efficiently while also cutting down your monthly costs at the same time.
