Why Every Maintenance Manager Should Consider a Preventive Maintenance Program

Exclusively relying on reactive maintenance leaves your facility susceptible to added costs, unplanned interruptions, and loss in productivity. While your plumbing, HVAC, and fire protection systems may be easy to forget about, these critical building systems play a crucial role in creating a comfortable, safe, and productive working environment. 

Implementing an effectively planned preventive maintenance program can provide significant cost savings and reduce the risk of inevitably dealing with the chaos of a system failure. 

Ahern offers mechanical preventive maintenance agreements (PMAs) and inspection services of these systems to keep them running at optimal efficiency and help maintain code compliance. Read on to learn the economical benefits of preventive maintenance and how we can help. 

Economical Benefits of Preventive Maintenance

  • Longer System Life: Routine maintenance and inspection of your building’s systems can lengthen their lifespan. Keeping them in good working condition and identifying issues before they lead to bigger issues can prevent premature replacement.
  • Increased Efficiency: Well maintained systems will operate more efficiently, helping to reduce energy consumption and costs.
  • Reduce Risk of System Failure: One of the biggest benefits of preventive maintenance is to catch major issues before the system breaks down. It helps to decrease the risk of emergency orders and unplanned downtime leading to loss in productivity. 
  • Reduce Costs: Mechanical preventive maintenance helps reduce the replacement frequency and emergency repairs of these big ticket systems, decreasing your expenses. 
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing your building’s critical systems are well maintained can help you rest easy knowing that they are working in good condition and your chance of having to frantically handle the chaos of a system failure are significantly reduced.
