You might have heard the old saying that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Well, when it comes to complex systems like that one that comprises your building’s facility operations, then this maxim must be taken seriously even before something goes wrong. Here is our latest look at why timely preventive maintenance is so crucial for ensuring your business continues to thrive while avoiding harmful downtime.
The Cost of Necessary Repairs Diminishes
At some point, your HVAC system will need repairs. Tuneups and other preemptive measures are just a fact of life. Despite this inevitability, you can take steps to ensure that these costs will decrease. As such, you won’t have to worry about making room in your budget for repairs, or at the very least, you’ll be able to reallocate those resources without hurting your bottom line. A regular maintenance routine helps avoid unexpected problems from arising since part of the preventive maintenance program involves periodic inspections of all the equipment and systems.
Your Equipment Will Last Longer
Another reason why preventive maintenance is worth every penny is that your HVAC equipment will last longer. Filthy coils and clogged machinery will slow down the HVAC unit and keep it from operating at optimal levels. Eventually, it will burn out and teeter on the edge of total catastrophic failure. Investing in preventive maintenance is a smart choice, no matter how old your building or equipment is at the moment.
Energy Efficiency Rating Goes Up
Ecofriendliness should be among your goals for the coming year. It’s never too late to reassess how much energy you are using and how your energy efficiency rating compares to your competition. One of the best ways to increase this value is to spend money on high-quality preventive maintenance – these contracts are very much worth your while! Higher-performance models save energy and also headaches for you and your team!
Better Indoor Air Quality
Air pollution isn’t only an issue for the environment beyond your doors. When you have your HVAC setup maintained, repaired, and upgraded, you will also improve air quality inside as well. Low IAQ can be caused by mold, fungi, pollen, and dust. Don’t let those contaminants become a nuisance, especially in the time of COVID-19.
