Preventative maintenance is the scheduled, periodic maintenance of important HVAC systems which includes:
- Replacing air filters
- Cleaning the coil and cabinet
- Cleaning drain pans and condensation points
- Inspecting moving parts like fans and motors
- Inspecting duct system
- Testing safety controls
- Inspecting condensers and heat exchangers
- Inspecting thermostats and controls
- Lubricating or replacing belts
Maintenance is often low on the priority list for businesses, particularly those that are trying to reduce overhead and expenses. The mindset of if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, is a dangerous one, particularly when you apply it to mission-critical equipment like your HVAC system. Your HVAC equipment doesn’t directly impact your bottom line so often, especially in response to short-term cash flow issues, their regular care and maintenance can fall by the wayside. But what exactly are the costs when you ignore planned maintenance?
Maintained equipment is efficient equipment
Regular maintenance will reduce the number of day-to-day faults in your system. Small issues make the entire system work harder to keep the building at a comfortable temperature. More work requires more energy, which means higher energy costs.
Regular maintenance reduces downtime
If your building was to lose its heating or cooling, would your business be able to operate? Nobody wants to shop in a store that is uncomfortable, or work in an office building for eight or more hours a day in a building that has no heating or air conditioning. When you lose the ability to control the temperature, you lose customers and work days. Time wasted waiting for the air conditioner to be fixed is time lost forever.
Preventative maintenance will allow you to maintain your warranty
Your HVAC equipment may still be under a manufacturers warranty and in order to stay under it, your HVAC system needs to be periodically inspected and maintained by a licensed and certified HVAC repair company.
A maintenance plan catches small issues before they become larger ones
Without a trained professional inspecting your system periodically, a potential issue could lead to failure and costly repairs or replacement of the entire system. Regular maintenance can identify common system faults that only a trained eye can see. Large maintenance issues lead to long periods of downtime.
