Don’t let mechanical equipment create uncertainty for your business.

In the healthcare industry, being able to deliver excellent care under all circumstances comes with the territory. Because of this, health and medical practices should be able to count on their mechanical equipment and service provider. Proper equipment installation and servicing can help ensure your facility stays operational — from creating comfortable indoor temperatures and circulating cleaner internal air to providing hot water.

Read on to learn how RelianceTM can help health and medical practices secure and maintain HVAC and Water Heating equipment to keep their facilities open and operating at peak performance.


HVAC, Water Heating & indoor air quality equipment are crucial for medical practices.

Consider how essential these equipment systems are for your facility:

HVAC Systems

An HVAC system works to keep staff, patients and visitors comfortable in your facilities, regardless of whether they are only on-site for a few minutes, or for longer periods of time in waiting rooms, examination rooms, operatories or treatment centres. You should also look into indoor air quality equipment that works with your existing HVAC system or that can be bundled with a new heating and cooling system.

Indoor Air Quality Equipment

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can affect the health, comfort and well-being of occupants in any indoor space. As you and your team continue working hard to ensure that your facility is as safe and comfortable as possible for everyone on site, consider adding another line of defense to improve your indoor air quality.

Water Heaters

Consistent and efficient water heating for proper hand washing, cleaning, sanitation and general comfort is critical for any open establishment, and not just in light of the current health and safety concerns.

Prioritize maintaining your equipment to reduce the risk of downtime.

Everyone who visits, or works at your facility benefits from properly-serviced HVAC and Water Heating equipment. Overlooking the importance of your equipment can lead to unplanned downtime and costly expenditures.

Equipment failure can be costly — from having to shut your doors in order to track down reputable technicians to surprise expenditures on repairs and replacements. Downtime can also lead to dissatisfied patients, which can hurt your reputation and your bottom line.

We can help keep your mechanical equipment operating at peak performance, so you focus on delivering quality care.
