As the old saying goes, “out of sight, out of mind.” Unfortunately, this old adage is often applied to things that really matter, like your commercial HVAC system. Just because it is tucked away – most likely on your roof – doesn’t mean your HVAC equipment doesn’t require periodic maintenance. In fact, your commercial HVAC system should be inspected, serviced, and, if need be, repaired several times a year. While this may sound rather expensive (You’re thinking “we don’t have the budget for that!”), Preventive HVAC Maintenance is actual more affordable in the long run than Deferred Maintenance.
Preventive HVAC Maintenance vs. Deferred Maintenance
Deferred maintenance can lead to breakdowns, down time, costly repairs, and shortened equipment life, all of which cost you money. Preventive maintenance, meanwhile, helps keep your HVAC equipment running properly, reducing energy bills, minimizing costly downtime, prolonging equipment life, and keeping money in your pocket.
HVAC systems in commercial buildings account for more than 40% of total energy use. Without regular maintenance, your commercial HVAC system can lose approximately 5% of its maximum operating efficiency each and every year it goes without maintenance. If your system is not operating efficiently, it could be costing you unnecessarily. And what building owner can afford that?
Downtime can be costly. Did you know that preventive HVAC maintenance can reduce downtime by 30%?
While deferred maintenance may seem like the cheaper option, preventive maintenance can reduce future maintenance costs by as much as 20%.
Your HVAC equipment experiences normal wear and tear each and every day. A preventive maintenance program can help reduce breakdowns by up to 75% and extend equipment life.
According to several surveys, 60% of facility managers take a reactive (deferred) approach to HVAC maintenance. Instead of waiting for the worst, but hoping for the best, employ a preventive HVAC maintenance program and ensure your equipment is working to the best of its abilities.
