May 25, 2007, Newsletter Issue #39: Avoid Major HVAC Repairs with Predictive Maintenance

Tip of the Week

Avoid major repairs of your HVAC system by keeping up with routine building maintenance. Most systems have service lives that extend beyond 25 years, and will not require overhauls if they are managed properly.

It makes economic sense to do an energy audit on existing systems. You can review your building's HVAC load and make sure the unit is sized properly to handle it. Identify areas to reduce energy use. Measures may include reducing lighting levels, adjusting use of appliances that emit a lot of heat, and automating climate control to match building use.

Perform predictive maintenance that ensures all HVAC parts operate properly and identifies items that may need replacement in the future. Predictive maintenance identifies problems before they occur. It ensures your system runs smoothly without the disruption of unexpected breakdowns and repairs.

Consult with an HVAC specialist to learn how to improve and maintain your system without interrupting work flow or comfort in your building.
