Changes in overall economics in the US and abroad also change the way purchasers (including you and I) look at product purchases. Over the past decades, purchases were made more in terms of getting something new rather than to repair older equipment. But today repair rather than replacement is the becoming more common among all companies. More home owners are looking to keep their cars running longer rather than put out the substantial funds for a new car. Business owners, especially when looking at HVAC air handler replacement, are attempting to save their equipment rather than purchase new.
Operational efficiencies are also being paid more attention to as companies seek ever more ways to reduce both their operational expenditures and new purchases. Several larger companies for example are looking at obtaining higher performance air conditioning filters.
Paying attention to coil cleaning – ASHRAE states dirty coils can increase building energy costs by as much as 40% – is being given attention by many firms as well. There are many cost-cutting techniques that are actively being looked for by property management firms and building owners.
We offer workable technical solutions to many of these demands, from keeping coils clean for years without maintenance attention to just stopping the building owner from having to purchase expensive new air handlers at a cost of $100,000 or more.
See our web site for more information, or ask one of our representatives how they can help reduce expenses.
