Ignoring preventive maintenance is not an effective strategy for cutting costs. The longer a building manager waits, the worse the problems will get. Fortunately, with the right preventative maintenance partner on your side, getting all the inspections and repairs done shouldn’t take too long. A reputable preventative maintenance provider will see downtime the same way you do – as a hindrance to your business. Here is a glance at why preventative maintenance is so essential.
Better Air Quality
Allergies go up during the spring and summer. They’re a problem all year round, not just during cold and flu season. Preventative maintenance can make a difference, though. That’s because you will be assured of better air quality than you had before. Reducing the amount of dust, dirt, pollen, mold, and bacteria circulating through the building by making sure that coils, filters, and evaporators are cleaned out will help everyone feel better. As a bonus, you will notice that your HVAC systems begin to run more efficiently.
Improved Energy Efficiency
One way to improve overall energy efficiency is to investigate whatever maintenance needs to be done. Cutting back on energy usage can help you save money that you can then redirect in other ways, such as offering employees incentives to be smarter about how much energy they use while in the office. Not only will operation costs go down, but the expenses associated with future repairs, retrofits, and upgrades will also go down. This means that when an eventual replacement becomes necessary, there won’t be as much sticker shock.
Decreasing Necessary Repairs
HVAC units will need repairs at the right time to keep them running smoothly. If these repairs are glossed over or aren’t done correctly, then whatever existing issues there are will only get worse. Getting the repairs done when they first become known will help take the sting out of how much it could be to have the necessary tune-ups completed. One busted part could lead to another, and you will want to do everything you can to reduce how much you are paying for repairs unless it is unavoidable.
