HVAC Preventative Maintenance and Repair
Maintenance Plays a Critical Role in the Health and Efficiency of Your System
Planned Preventative Maintenance
Aside from having a team of HVAC professionals who take a consultative approach during the initial design and installation phases of your system, preventative maintenance is the single most important part of keeping your system efficient. By entering into a preventative maintenance agreement, you are committing to the health of your system for the long term. There are a number of substantial benefits to be had through preventative maintenance planning.
Reduced Repair Costs – Preventative maintenance planning includes regular inspections and system tune-ups. The goal here is to catch problems before they balloon into expensive repair projects. According to the stated plan, technicians will arrive on a scheduled basis to perform inspections and minor repairs when needed. It is far more cost efficient to have someone swing by on occasion to give your system a checkup than it is to report a catastrophic failure.
With a plan in place with a provider who truly knows your equipment, the issues that are expected to occur throughout your system’s lifecycle can be tackled ahead of time. The name of the game here is to eliminate surprises.
Longer System Lifespan – No mechanical system is going to last forever. Whether there’s a mechanical breakdown or simply a decline in efficiency, it’s inevitable that you are going to have to replace the system as a whole eventually. However, planned preventative maintenance can extend the lifespan of your system significantly, pushing the cost of a replacement down the road.
This is true of every mechanical system, from cars to home appliances. The difference is that an HVAC unit is operating essentially 24 hours per day. This wear and tear day in and day out should be considered an ongoing problem to be treated on a regular basis.
Lower Utility Bills – In the beginning, when you first have a brand new HVAC system installed, you will likely be astounded at the energy savings you see reflected on your monthly utility bill. This honeymoon period can last for a year or two—or even five. But eventually, your system is going to start operating less efficiently.
Preventative maintenance planning won’t entirely mitigate the effects of old age, but it can extend the efficient life of your system. All the savings you see on your energy bill can be put to far better use elsewhere. You could even think of these savings as an offset to the replacement cost of your future system. One of the main reasons people upgrade to energy-efficient systems is to realize these savings, so why not take advantage for as long as possible?
Holistic HVAC support
Doing everything we can to protect your system from failure.
Even after you’ve done all you can to prevent a system malfunction or catastrophic failure, eventually equipment is going to have to be repaired. Not only can John’s Service and Sales keep your system up and running efficiently through preventative maintenance, but we’re ready in any situation to return your equipment to working order should any failure occur.
It is important to note that when a component does fail, it’s crucial to conduct your repair as soon as possible. HVAC systems operate with a delicate balancing act in which each component relies on the others’ efficient operation. When one component fails, the whole system takes a hit. This can have wide-ranging effects, including strain on other components, leading to shorter system lifespan and even air quality issues that could affect residents, staff, and visitors to your building.
HVAC system failure can have cascading negative effects on your business, all of which are entirely avoidable with the right planning and an experienced team of HVAC professionals in place. There are two ends of the spectrum. On one, you have a system that uses more energy than it should, doesn’t provide adequate indoor climate conditions, fails on occasion, and dies years before it should. On the other, you have lower utility bills, comfortable and breathable air, and a system that lasts longer than expected. Which would you choose?
