Understanding Commercial Plumbing and HVAC Maintenance Plans

Understanding Commercial Plumbing and HVAC Maintenance Plans

Every property manager or owner understands there must be a balance between preventative maintenance and emergency service work. Ideally, preventative care will help prolong systems and lower costs by increasing efficiency and reducing emergency repairs. In general, emergency service calls cost more both on the labor expense from a rushed job and the need for repeat trips, as well as last-minute part requests. 

While there are some emergency services that are inevitable and unforeseen, with preventative maintenance plans in place, business owners and managers can stay on top of problems before they start, and save money in the process. 

How Do Commercial Plumbing and HVAC Maintenance Plans Work? 

First, a service technician will come to your place of business and inspect and audit the systems and equipment you have installed. This can include: 

  • Boilers 

  • Furnaces 

  • Air Conditioning units 

  • Evaporative coolers 

  • Heating units 

  • Water heaters 

  • Drinking fountains 

  • Water fed appliances 

  • Duct work 

  • Pipes 

  • Vents 

  • Waste lines 

The technician will look for signs of damage, wear, leaks, aging, blockages, safety, pests and overall function. 

From there, they will create an action plan of what needs to be handled first and what can be handled later. They will also consider the frequency in which each system or equipment should be serviced to create a solid preventative maintenance plan. 

What Kind of Plan Can I Expect? 

Your plumbing and HVAC preventative maintenance plan will likely include: 

  • Regular inspections 

  • Cleaning of sewer or drain lines 

  • Testing of valves 

  • Replacing filters 

  • Safety checks 

  • Pressure checks 

  • Lubrication 

  • Cleaning 

  • Refrigerant recharging 

How often your technician will perform the preventative maintenance tasks will depend on several factors including the age of the equipment, how many areas need to be addressed, and budget. More than one technician may be required to complete all the tasks, and more than one day or visit may also be required. 

Starting with a walk through is the best way to really understand what needs to be done, the frequency, and the estimate of charges in order to best maintain your equipment for optimal efficiency and longevity and to reduce expensive emergency calls.
