One of the most essential measures you can take to keep your HVAC unit running at peak performance is to be proactive and have a certified technician schedule regular service appointments.

Businesses that have an Energy Savings Maintenance Agreement, or ESMA, with a qualified mechanical service provider see it as an investment, rather than an expense.

Here is a list of the top five money-saving benefits gained with regular service for your commercial building HVAC system:

Fewer Surprise Repairs

By scheduling annual HVAC checkups with a qualified professional, you’re taking preventative measures that will save you time, money and stress.

Annual inspections allow your trusted technician to ensure that your buildings system is running at peak efficiency, as well as identifying potential issues and offering solutions to keep your unit from experiencing major breakdowns.

This initial investment will be far less than the cost of an emergency fix. Unplanned repairs hit a budget hard and have the potential to decrease productivity and even shut down a business until repairs can be completed.

Maintain Efficiency

A yearly evaluation of your system assures optimal performance and efficiency by conducting routine inspections that include tasks such as checking for ventilation blockage or leaks, analyzing combustion gases, visual inspection for corrosion, and ensuring filters are clean, to name a few.

All of these steps help make sure your system isn’t working harder than it needs to, allowing the level of comfort in your building to be at its best without causing wear and tear on your unit.

Energy Savings

Saving money on bills is one of the top reasons having annual HVAC inspections should be on your to-do list. In addition to greatly reducing your risk of having to spring for an expensive emergency repair, yearly maintenance will save you money by ensuring your system is running at peak efficiency, which means bigger savings on monthly utility bills.

Additionally, an annual ESMA with Custom Aire means you will receive a value rate on parts and labor equaling about 15% over standard rates.

Longer Lifespan

After the initial investment of installing a high-quality HVAC unit in your building, you want the system to last as long as possible. The most effective way to extend the life of your unit is by keeping up with proper maintenance from a certified professional. This will not only give your system a longer life, but also considerably prolong the level of efficiency at which your unit is able to perform.


Perhaps the most important aspect of keeping up with annual scheduled maintenance services is the health and comfort of your buildings occupants. Ensuring that comfort levels are optimum will keep your employees happy with their work environment and help maintain a high level of productivity in the workplace.

Even more important, proper upkeep to your system will make sure indoor air quality management standards are met, ultimately promoting public health and safety, and the overall quality of life.
