MAINTENANCE KEEPS YOUR EQUIPMENT RUNNING LONGER.
If you don’t maintain your HVACR equipment, you could be paying up to 20% more for energy. And, your unit will age 5-10 years faster than a regularly maintained unit, possibly causing it to fail prematurely. Don’t let your equipment deteriorate and cost you more money. MJ Mechanical offers a Maintenance Contract to keep your equipment in top shape and your energy costs lower. And, you’ll receive the highest priority when you need repairs.
Preventive maintenance is the most prevalent maintenance program in the commercial and industrial sector today. This type of program covers all of the necessary maintenance needs and seasonal changeovers, as well as keeping the equipment running at its peak level. A good preventive maintenance program will keep your equipment running longer, reduce energy consumption, cut down on service calls, and make everyone more comfortable. The costs involved vary with equipment, but are generally very reasonable.
Maintenance: What's The Big Deal?
Most people never think about their heating, ventilating, or air conditioning system until there is a problem. This issue should be addressed in a preventive manner. An HVAC system is a costly but necessary part of a building's functioning. Because every building has different requirements, there are several ways to approach maintenance. MJ Mechanical can design a maintenance program to specifically fit your company's needs.
All-Inclusive Full Service Contracts
An all-inclusive contract is just as it sounds - everything is included in the terms of the contract for the time period established.
For example, company A signs an all-inclusive five-year contract for their eight rooftop units. All of the preventive maintenance is included, as well as all service calls, parts, and labor. These programs are great in certain applications, especially when budgets are non-negotiable; but they can seem an expensive option in the short run. However, in the long run, these types of contracts can be the most cost-effective programs, as well as being absolutely worry-free. Contractors may vary on what they will cover; therefore, read the contract and ask questions. All-inclusive contracts are top-of-the-line maintenance programs.
Breakdown maintenance is done only when a unit breaks down. In this situation, the unit runs less efficiently, generally costs more to maintain, and will need to be replaced in a much shorter period of time.
Basic maintenance includes only the necessary maintenance - this usually amounts to a simple belt and filter change. This keeps the unit from breaking down due to dirty filters, but does nothing preventive. The cost of this kind of program is minimal, but in the long run, more money will be spent on repairs than has been saved by cutting an effective preventive maintenance program.
|Adjusting equipment operating sequence||25-35%|

|Removing condenser coil scale||25-30%|
|Cleaning burner assembly||15%|
|Eliminating fan motor belt slippage and poor alignment||15-20%|
