Did you know that heating account for 33% of the overall energy consumption of most commercial buildings? Now just imagine how expensive this can get if your HVAC system isn’t running at peak efficiency. Ca-Ching! This is why Commercial Furnace Maintenance is so beneficial.


When it comes to maximizing the efficiency of your HVAC system, it is important to have the system inspected and maintained twice a year: in the fall, before the heating season, and in the spring, before cooling season. This will not only help ensure energy efficiency, saving you money (which any business owner will love), but also improve indoor air quality, increase tenant comfort, and help identify potential issues before they lead to costly breakdowns or complete system failure.

When should you schedule your furnace inspection and maintenance? Think Back-to-School, not the first frost!

No matter what kind of furnace you have or heating fuel it uses, it should have an annual inspection from a Minnick’s service technician. A Minnick’s 16-point furnace inspection service is designed to check all elements of your facility’s heating system, from the thermostat to the connections and everything in between. Once the inspection has been completed, you receive a comprehensive report that details how well your unit performed.


There comes a time when maintenance just isn’t enough, especially when considering how inefficient old furnaces had efficiencies in the range of 56% to 70%. Modern furnaces, meanwhile, can achieve efficiencies as high as 98.5%. Wow! So why try to improve the efficiency of an older furnace when you can make a much bigger impact via replacement? Such a replacement could cut your energy bills in half.

If your furnace is old, worn out, inefficient, or significantly oversized, the simplest solution is to replace it with a modern high-efficiency model. Is it time? Ask Minnick’s!
