Author: Liana Montagnese | | Categories: Commercial Refrigeration , HVAC Design , HVAC Maintenance


Whether in commercial or residential situations, refrigeration and HVAC systems (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) play an essential role in the functioning of business and the comfort and safety of your home. 

Many mistakes can be made when it comes to installing, maintaining, and repairing heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems. However, by far, the most common mistake we see is customers putting off maintenance until a problem arises.

They forget the saying “a stitch in time, saves nine” and prioritize minute monetary savings, only to neglect their investment and find they need to replace the entire system. 

To help you avoid this fundamental error that could prove costly, MGT Mechanical Ltd has explained in detail, this common mistake people make with their refrigeration and HVAC systems. We’ve also covered the advantages of regular maintenance.

Purpose of preventative HVAC maintenance
Preventative HVAC maintenance is a service that is regularly performed at least three to four times a year on your entire refrigeration and HVAC system. The purpose of preventive care is to keep your HVAC system functioning as it’s supposed to, all season long with no surprise breakdowns. Thus, enabling you to heat and cool your office space reliably while operating at maximum efficiency.

Advantages of preventive HVAC maintenance
While refrigeration and HVAC system maintenance comes at a fee, choosing to spend that little extra for a preventative maintenance package has multiple benefits that should not be ignored.

1. Extends the lifetime of your equipment
Wear and tear is pretty much unavoidable. Although, if precautions are taken at the right time and issues are solved promptly, HVAC and refrigeration systems can last for a long time without the need for significant repair or replacement.

2. Minimizes discomfort and equipment downtime
Refrigeration and HVAC systems are essential to keep our food and beverages at the right temperature and prevent industrial areas and offices from becoming igloos or saunas. Preventive maintenance goes a long way to avoiding downtime that can lead to food spoilage and discomfort for employees or inhabitants. 

3. Reliability leads to peace of mind and monetary savings
When you can count on your refrigeration or HVAC system to work as expected and know that the entire system’s routine care is covered under the preventative maintenance plan you prescribed for, you can rest easy knowing you have that area covered. Preventative HVAC maintenance also ensures you save hundreds of dollars on your electrical bill making the minor initial expense worth it in the long run.
