HVAC Preventive Maintenance: The Underlying Value of Forward Thinking

Just like a car that needs regular oil changes and tune-ups, your HVAC system needs periodic maintenance inspections in order to run efficiently.  The majority of HVAC system failures are caused simply by dirt and rust! HVAC Preventive maintenance programs ensure that your HVAC system will continue to provide reliable cooling and heating to your place of business.

The Benefits of HVAC Preventive Maintenance Programs

There are many benefits in maintaining your HVAC systems. Keeping your equipment in peak operating condition can save you approximately 20% in utility costs.

A study done by ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air conditioning Engineers) found that a large central air system with a dirty coil will cost approximately $600.00 more to operate during one cooling season than an HVAC system that has been properly maintained. Add a clogged filter into the equation, and your costs will increase by another $480.00 – in just one cooling season! These unnecessary costs can be reduced and even avoided completely when a proper Preventative Maintenance Program is in place.

General Temperature Control’s Philosophy on Preventive Maintenance – The 70/30 Rule

When you consider the operating costs of an HVAC system, remember the 70/30 rule. 70% of the maintenance cost of an HVAC system should be preventive in nature. 30% of the HVAC maintenance cost should be corrective.  

It’s a natural law that anything mechanical will eventually need to be repaired. Parts wear out. Natural disasters happen. Technology becomes obsolete. GTC’s Preventive Maintenance Program believes in the value of forward thinking -- through regular inspections of your HVAC system – before the problems occur. During these inspections, our certified technicians carry out the tasks necessary to optimize the performance of your HVAC system.
