The sun is shining, the days are getting longer and at long last businesses are starting to reopen after months of lockdown. All is good in the world as we cautiously get back to a new normal way of working and living. Well done to everyone who is (just about) hanging in there after navigating one almighty roller-coaster of a year.
We can picture the excitement as businesses prepare for their grand reopenings in the coming days and weeks. New products to sell, painting and decorating, Spring cleaning and shop areas reconfigured to allow for social distancing – understandably, businesses are beyond excited to welcome back customers after four long winter months with their shutters down.
However, behind the scenes the less obvious business ‘services’ such as air conditioning and/or ventilation systems are often forgotten. When was the HVAC system last switched on? Has the system been cleaned recently? Is the air conditioning serviced at least annually? As many businesses have their reopening dates boldly marked on their calendars, now is the perfect time to give your air conditioning system a thorough Spring clean.
