There are countless benefits to keeping your facility’s crucial infrastructure services under the roof of one provider. From initial construction to ongoing maintenance, having a single point of contact can be invaluable.
HVAC and Plumbing Under One Roof
HVAC and plumbing services are distinct, yet closely related. Many service providers specialize in one or the other and claim this is a benefit, saying “we specialize only in HVAC systems, so you know you’re getting the experts” or something similar.
While this can be persuasive, don’t be fooled. Sure, there are different areas of expertise here, but a firm that employs experienced mechanical contractors will by no means offer lower quality services. In fact, when these systems are maintained together in a holistic way by engineers and technicians who deeply understand all aspects of your system, the quality of service can be dramatically improved.
A Single Point of Contact
When first hiring a contractor for plumbing, HVAC, or any other service you may require, the first considerations are often price, expertise, or experience in the industry. These things are obviously critically important for success. However, when deciding to keep hiring the same contractor again and again, the ease of communication becomes a major factor.
For this reason, it is a good idea to work with a mechanical contractor that can handle HVAC and plumbing systems. Furthermore, at that single contractor, the ideal situation is that when you pick up the phone to report an issue or schedule an appointment, you have a single point of contact with whom you are familiar and can therefore trust.
The best example of this is the emergency situation we would all like to avoid. Maybe the heat shuts down in the middle of February, a pipe bursts due to the cold, or even both at the same time. In a situation like this, every minute counts. If you are able to call a single individual and have them respond with “we’ll be right over,” the stress of the situation can be partially mitigated at least.
Plumbing and HVAC Are Closely Related
Another key thing to remember is that especially for industrial facilities, your HVAC and plumbing systems are closely related and even depend on each other in some cases. Many pieces of HVAC equipment rely on a well-functioning plumbing system.
These can include:
- Cooling Towers
To a layperson, it could be difficult to say which system—plumbing or HVAC—a piece of equipment like a cooling tower is a part of. When there is a problem, wouldn’t it be easier to call one contractor? Particularly for industrial users, such as manufacturers, all of these systems must be carefully designed and balanced to work in perfect harmony.
This can be important for ongoing preventative maintenance, but if you are building a facility from scratch, there really is no other way to go. A single provider will ensure that all systems are working well together, as designed. This reduces maintenance costs over time and could even extend the life of your system.
Heating and air conditioning contractors who also specialize in plumbing are the gold standard. When choosing plumbing or HVAC repair services for your home or business, a single solution can provide peace of mind.
Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling Repair
If your plumbing and HVAC contractors are one and the same, you can be confident that both systems are well understood. This can offer substantial peace of mind because you know that when repairs need to be made, there will be a clear understanding of how your systems are designed to work together. This knowledge eliminates the risk of a change to one system negatively affecting the other.
