Stay Cool, Go Green

Summer is almost here, and temperatures are rising across the country. As building owners, property managers, and operators think about turning on the AC, they should prioritize maintenance on their HVAC systems to ensure they’re in top shape for the season. Beyond avoiding a dreaded cooling unit breakdown in the sweltering heat, scheduling maintenance can have many environmental benefits.


Optimization for Energy Efficiency

It’s well-known that keeping your HVAC systems at peak performance can help cut costs; the better the system works, the less energy it requires to do its job, resulting in lowered energy bills. Reducing equipment energy consumption due to proper maintenance subsequently decreases greenhouse gas emissions, lightening your carbon footprint.

Emissions Reduction from Refrigerant Leaks

Routine maintenance plays a large role in minimizing greenhouse gas emissions from refrigerant leaks. Through regular leak detection tests and inspections, it’s easy to prevent the damaging impact of refrigerants on the atmosphere.

Water Savings

One of the biggest culprits of water loss in cooling systems is evaporation. As water evaporates, the dirt and bacteria that are left behind need to be drained and replaced with fresh water. Increasing energy efficiency through maintenance can help lessen water waste by decreasing the need to drain and replace concentrated water; reducing thermal energy consumption consequently reduces evaporation.

Increased Equipment Lifespan

Repairs and replacements can be costly and time-consuming. Identifying and addressing minor issues before they develop into major problems can help extend the equipment’s lifespan. Doing so lessens the need for old equipment disposal and new purchases, reducing waste and conserving resources.


HVAC systems maintenance not only prevents unplanned repair costs—it also promotes responsible energy use and enhances the well-being of all occupants. Investing in routine maintenance will keep you cool and comfortable this summer, all while helping you achieve your environmental goals.
