Poor maintenance leads to higher costs.
By performing the preventive maintenance as the equipment engineers envisioned, we can extend the life of the equipment which translates into dollar savings for you. An organization that implements and adheres to a structured preventive maintenance program will experience a 545% return over time. Depending on the building site, these savings can represent thousands to hundreds-of-thousands of dollars each year, and many can be achieved with minimal cash outlays.
In addition to energy/resource savings, a well-run PM program will:
• Increase the safety of all staff, as properly maintained equipment is safer equipment.
• Ensure the comfort, health and safety of building occupants through properly functioning equipment providing a healthy indoor environment.
• Confirm the design life expectancy of equipment is achieved.
• Facilitate the compliance with federal legislation.
The design life of most equipment requires periodic maintenance so belts need adjustment, alignment needs to be maintained, proper lubrication on rotating equipment is required, and so on. In some cases, certain components need replacement. Anytime we fail to perform maintenance activities intended by the equipment’s designer, we shorten the operating life of the equipment.
