If you never take your vehicle to a mechanic to have it serviced or have the tires or oil changed, you will probably run into some rather serious and costly problems down the road that could have been easily prevented.
Similar to a vehicle, building's mechanical systems require regular, scheduled maintenance to continue operating efficiently. Having a proper preventative maintenance program in place can help increase your return on investment, reduce your building’s operating costs and maximize your energy savings.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider signing up for a service contract or preventative maintenance program with a professional service provider.
You know what they say - an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When you have your heating and cooling systems serviced regularly, it improves the equipment’s overall efficiency and productivity, while also extending the life of the equipment.
Having a professional technician checking your system regularly gives them the chance to identify any problems with the equipment and take care of them before they become too serious. This minimizes the chance of any catastrophic failure to the system’s components, and allows technicians to focus on eliminating the root cause of common issues.
Your HVAC system may have a more significant impact on the overall efficiency of your business than you think. If your heating and cooling system broke down unexpectedly, would your employees, products or customers be affected?
Having your systems serviced regularly reduces these unexpected breakdowns, and therefore any downtime for your business. Our maintenance programs work around your schedule so that no work is interrupted while your systems are being serviced.
Ensuring that your building’s heating and cooling systems are running properly improves indoor air quality and minimizes the risk of carbon monoxide in the building. For employees or students, having a safe, comfortable work environment tends to improve morale and productivity while decreasing sick days.
Regular HVAC maintenance tends to reduce energy costs, maintain warranty eligibility on new equipment, and reduce the chances of costly breakdowns.
Our preventative maintenance programs help with budgeting for major repairs and replacements and capital renewal planning is an option so that owners can plan ahead and budget for retrofits.
Money isn’t the only thing that a preventative maintenance program can save business owners. At Kimco, we have 24/7 on-call technicians for emergencies and our regular clients typically receive a preferred customer response time, as well as preferred customer pricing.
Plus, our dedicated technicians and back up support have the chance to get to know your building and understand its unique needs and capabilities, which is a bonus for everyone involved.
We recommend these plans to any of our clients who are interested in maintaining efficient systems as well as saving time and money. If you’d like to learn more about HVAC service contracts in the Thompson Okanagan, please contact us for more information.
