As a building owner, you've most likely created your 2011 budget. With the economy slowly starting to build back up, that budget may be tighter than ever. You may have cut some things back, and eliminated others. One thing you hopefully did not eliminate, however, and something you should make sure you have in place for your facility is a preventive maintenance plan for your mechanical systems.
Building systems, including your heating and cooling equipment, should be maintained on a seasonal, monthly or annual basis. What can happen if you don't have a preventive maintenance plan for your building in place?
• The life of your equipment can be shortened.
• Energy (and thus money) can be wasted due to inefficient operation of your mechanical systems.
• Harmful contaminants can be affecting your indoor air quality.
• Substantial repair bills may affect you at any time.
• There may be an increase in employee sickness due to air quality.
• There may be a decrease in production time due to mechanical systems being down (would you require your employees to work in a facility that didn't have heat?)
When you have a preventive maintenance plan for your facility from Blue Dot Services in place, our skilled technicians perform annual maintenance checks according to a predetermined schedule. During these maintenance checks, our professional technicians test, clean, adjust, calibrate, balance, evaluate and analyze your mechanical systems.
Regular testing and prompt repair of worn or faulty parts gives building owners and operators peace of mind, knowing their mechanical systems will operate properly and efficiently, day in and day out. Scheduled maintenance also helps improve the environmental conditions of your facility and keeps your occupants comfortable. In addition, these maintenance plans help find a problem before it becomes a problem.
Therefore, in looking at your 2011 budget, make sure you have a Preventive Maintenance Plan from Blue Dot Services in place. The reduced owning and operating costs you'll experience by having a plan in place will translate directly to your bottom line.
Varying levels of coverage allow you to create a customized maintenance program to meet your specific needs. You can choose from the most basic coverage, which includes testing and inspection services, to comprehensive programs that include preventive maintenance, system replacement, and 24-hour emergency service.
