Planned Maintenance Is The Smart Choice For Your Atlanta Business
For many things in our lives, a regular check-up just makes sense.
Every year, you head in for your annual doctor’s appointment to provide a baseline for your health. You have tests and screenings. They take a blood sample and test, which can reveal things like cholesterol levels, anemia, infections, and even cancer.
You’re also likely to bring in your car for servicing several times per year, or every 5,000 miles or so. Your car receives its own “physical,” changing the oil, looking for wear and tear on belts and other parts. It keeps you safe as you drive your family around the city.
Systems are important to check on a regular basis. It’s what keeps the system in check, and provides you with peace of mind that everything is working as it should.
Yet people don’t always think about their heating and air conditioning system in the same manner.
When your body or your car aren’t operating correctly, you’ll know things are off. Your car will make noises. You’ll feel a little under the weather. And if this goes on too long, you’ll seek a solution quickly.
With your HVAC system, not so much. HVAC equipment is usually installed in a place where you can’t see it. It might be in a basement or on a roof, or tucked away in a closet that is rarely used.
As property owners or managers, there are hundreds of things vying for your attention every day. Why pay attention to something that isn’t a problem? And so months, even years in some cases go by before the system is checked.
And that’s where the problems arise. Because just like your body or a car, the more things are ignored, the bigger the problem becomes. If your HVAC system isn’t fixed when it has a minor problem, it will quickly escalate into a larger one down the road.
That’s when the pipes freeze, and the heat goes out on the first frigid day. Or the air conditioning system stops working at the beginning of a heat wave.
Planned maintenance can extend the life of your system and keep it in working condition for as long as possible. A service plan ensures that your system is checked on a regular basis, repair work is performed to ensure everything is in top condition, and small problems are handled before they escalate to bigger ones.
