Preventative maintenance can help facility managers ensure that their facility’s HVAC system continues working while prolonging the life of their equipment. That being said, unforeseen problems happen and if a facility manager sacrifices staff and maintenance costs to deal with these issues, it can be both expensive and time-consuming. Below are some tips for helping you craft a facility maintenance strategy utilizing reactive and preventative maintenance techniques.
Make a Plan and Stick to It
One thing that facility managers should keep in mind: responding to emergency situations should only take up a small percentage of a facility maintenance technician’s daily work.
It’s also important to remember that breakdown maintenance repairs cost a lot more in the long-term than planned repairs do.
One strategy that facility managers can use for dealing with unexpected issues is to make sure to come up with strategies for how to deal with their facility’s reactive maintenance needs. It’s a good idea to assign a single employee who will handle reactive maintenance issues. That way, you have a dedicated worker who can keep an eye out for any issues that could cost you more money in the future if not taken care of proactively.
Make Sure to Be Prepared
No matter what your facility’s maintenance plan may be, be sure you are always prepared for unexpected issues that could arise at any time. If you have the right tools on hand, this will benefit your facility and your bottom line.
