Don’t Wait Until It Fails! A Proactive Strategy For HVAC Equipment Replacement

We can feel those temperatures creeping up. This last weekend of May, the forecast calls for 80-plus degrees.

As we’ve been saying for the past couple of weeks, this is the time to make sure your HVAC system has a good check up. Call Daffan Cooling & Heating to make sure your air conditioning will be ready to get you through the long, hot summer.

On that note, we’d like to share with you some great advice from Energy Manager Today. The publication is targeted at managers of big commercial facilities, but a recent article on being proactive on HVAC equipment replacement has value for homeowners and small to medium business owners.

In “Are You Waiting for Your HVAC Equipment to Fail,” writer Martin Flusberg, CEO of a company that makes energy-management software, discusses a common perception that many organizations have: That it’s more cost-effective to keep HVAC equipment operating through its useful life until it essentially fails, rather than taking a proactive approach and replacing it early.

Flusberg makes a compelling argument for taking a proactive approach to the replacement of HVAC systems. Here’s a summary of some of his best points:

  1. Aging equipment typically uses more energy. New systems can be much more efficient–organizations should remember to factor in potential energy savings in their capital purchase plans.
  2. “Reactive replacement” (waiting until it fails) seems to occur during the coldest or hottest times of the year! Essentially, we’re talking about Murphy’s Law, and we’ve all experienced it. When the air conditioner goes out, it’s 110 degrees in the middle of July, and it gets very expensive to find the unit you need today–not two or three weeks from now!
  3. Government or utility-sponsored rebates may be available to offset the cost of new HVAC systems. Some programs require applying for the rebate before the purchase, so this may be a good opportunity to proactively replace!

The Energy Manager Today article goes on to discuss how to develop a proactive HVAC replacement program for your business. If you’re interested in checking it out, click here.
