Depending on the size of your facility, your HVAC system may include multiple heating and cooling units and thousands of feet of ventilation. Your system is essential for your business and likely represents thousands of dollars of investment. If your HVAC system goes down, the problem isn’t just costly; it can disrupt your operations entirely.
The key to avoiding these costs and disruptions? Scheduling a quarterly commercial furnace maintenance visit from Total System Services!
Why Quarterly HVAC Maintenance?
Chances are that you regularly service the HVAC unit in your home twice a year. You may wonder why you might need commercial heater maintenance four times annually. The truth is that commercial heating and air conditioning systems are simply larger and more complex. They work much harder than home systems. It’s also significantly more expensive to repair them if something goes wrong.
We urge all of our customers to plan for quarterly maintenance. This enables you to keep your HVAC systems running at peak performance year-round.
The Benefits of AC and Commercial Heater Maintenance
Quarterly maintenance isn’t a cost; it’s an investment. Here are just a few of the reasons that it’s worth the time and money.
Better Air Quality
OSHA may not set indoor air quality standards, but your employees and customers certainly notice when your air quality is poor. Quarterly commercial heater maintenance includes cleaning and changing filters. This allows for much cleaner, healthier air in your facility.
Preventing HVAC Malfunctions
When you schedule quarterly commercial furnace maintenance, you give Total System Services technicians the opportunity to inspect every component of your HVAC equipment. When we do that, we can locate any parts that are worn or otherwise at risk of malfunctioning. This allows us to perform the necessary repairs before they become a major maintenance issue.
Boost Energy Efficiency with Quarterly Commercial Furnace Maintenance
When your HVAC system is well maintained, it runs as efficiently as possible. This allows you to keep your building as warm or cool as you desire all year long. You may even find that your utility bills are lower.
Keep in mind that HVAC manufacturers are always working to find ways to improve the efficiency of heating and cooling systems. Even if you aren’t ready to replace your equipment now, we may be able to suggest changes you can make to help your system run better in the meantime.
What We Include in Quarterly HVAC Maintenance

Thermostat Programming and Calibration
If you’ve noticed that your system doesn’t respond as it should when you program the thermostat, you may have a calibration issue. This is often most noticeable when you switch between using your heating system and your cooling system or vice versa.
We can help with this! We include regular thermostat calibration as part of your commercial heater maintenance plan.
