In the sweltering heat, would you rather choose to sit in a hot and humid environment instead of a cool and pleasant one? Probably not. That’s why it’s imperative you have a Preventative Maintenance schedule in place for your HVAC system.
A PM schedule is important to avoid HVAC failure during extreme seasonal conditions. Damaged equipment, impediment of daily operations, and a decreased comfort level for building occupants can result from HVAC failure during peak seasonal conditions. A PM schedule will not only keep your equipment performing optimally, but ensure technicians have the availability to conduct routine maintenance. As a rule of thumb, your HVAC system requires 70-percent preventative maintenance and 30-percent corrective maintenance. In developing a PM schedule, you can opt for either a full-fledged maintenance coverage plan or a system-performance enhancement. It is dependent upon the age and the complexity of the equipment installed, its location, and use.
With a fully functional system, you can be assured of getting enhanced productivity at the workplace. And while maintenance comes at a cost, it will never amount to the price of purchasing new equipment in the event of complete HVAC failure.
