Routinely servicing and maintaining large, climate-controlled systems within commercial buildings and facilities is an important responsibility, and one facility managers and building owners should take seriously. Professional HVAC preventive maintenance provided by Cullum can foster years of dependable, issue-free system performance, while systems that are neglected are likely to experience continual, costly problems.

The Importance of Making HVAC Preventive Maintenance a Priority

Instituting and adhering to a building-specific HVAC preventive maintenance plan offers the following advantages:

  • Minimized breakdowns—Even something as seemingly minor as a dirty air filter can greatly impair the overall efficiency and operation of a commercial HVAC system. Routine HVAC preventive maintenance can reduce serious breakdowns and mechanical issues that require extensive repairs.
  • Reduced operational costs—Running a commercial HVAC system day in and day out to maintain building comfort and safety is a large expense. Routine preventive maintenance can optimize a commercial HVAC system’s performance, allowing for greater efficiency and reduced operational costs.
  • Extended system lifespan—Even the highest-quality HVAC system will eventually fail or wear out due to advanced age. But regular preventive maintenance ensures all major components and parts last as long as possible.

Some of the activities conducted during preventive maintenance appointments by Cullum’s professionals include performing oil changes, checking equipment, changing filters, coil cleaning, lubrication, refrigerant checks, wire inspections, and more.

The lifespan, reliability, and efficiency of any larger, commercial HVAC setup depends on consistent and thorough maintenance.
