Are you proactive or reactive?


It’s a fair question to pose. Think about it. If you’re an organization looking for cost savings, you ought to lean more towards the proactive end. If you’re a gambler, or just don’t know any better, reactive is probably where you’re at in your operative energy strategy. We suggest you at least think about minimizing the risk, and are happy to talk through it with you and offer helpful suggestions.

Here’s the thing, a reactive approach to maintenance could wind up costing you 3 to 5 times more over the lifespan of your heating and/or cooling system. Here are some questions to consider:

  • Do you have a time set aside for the downtime that will be required to service an ill functioning HVAC system?
  • Do you have time set aside to take a hit to your revenues due to be closed for business because of your HVAC system?
  • Do you have the measurement of loss built into your bottom line that occurs when your working environment falters and productivity takes a nosedive?
  • Can you tell when any of these things are about to happen due to an aging, unmanaged system?
  • Do you know how much money you’re about to lose if you lose the gamble that your HVAC system is going to be operatively sound for eternity?

We’re going to ask you again:

Are you proactive, or reactive?

If you’re still leaning towards reactive, we hope you have a very deep wallet, and a backup plan in place in the event something catastrophic happens to your business.

Truth be told, we are here for you at any hour of the day, any day of the week. But we would rather be visiting you for routine service to help your system run at its best, to save you money. Because we know that being proactively conscious of how to make your HVAC system a highly efficient, highly effective operating entity is greatly beneficial to you from an all-encompassing business standpoint.

In short: the proactive approach of HVAC maintenance requires careful planning and forward thinking – saving you time, money, and headaches. Reactive thinking is the most costly way to maintain your building’s HVAC system.
