Preventative Maintenance Agreements  = Savings
What’s the bottom line for me:
PMAs typically more than pay for themselves through higher efficiency, less utility overpayment, and contractor discounts. PMA customers typically receive a discount on all parts and services performed during the entire year.
Peace of Mind:
Predictive maintenance will mean fewer system failures and a longer life for your HVAC equipment.
Priority Service:
Should a system failure occur during the heat of the summer or the cold of the winter, customers with PMAs receive priority service.
Vander Hyde is often able to assign technicians to the specific customers. That way, you get to see and know the same service technician, and he or she becomes more familiar with you and your equipment.
Warranty Protection:
Most manufacturers require that professional preventive maintenance is done and recorded at their specified intervals to maintain the integrity of the warranty offered with their equipment.
Preventive Maintenance Agreements are specifically designed for each individual building type based on operations, business hours or run time of equipment, location, equipment type, age and other determining factors. Don’t be fooled by the lowest cost solution as these contracts do not typically have your best interest and a very basic in nature in offerings.  Know what kind of services you are being offered when looking at your next Preventive Maintenance Contract, not simply the annual cost.
Vander Hyde Mechanical is happy to work with you and your specific requirements of your locations; we will outline the best options for equipment efficiency and maximize your return on investment when providing our professional services.
Preventive Maintenance Top Reason Why for both the building owner and the tenants of leased property.
  • In commercial applications huge amounts of energy are used to heat and cool the conditioned space, in fact over 1/3rd of the energy used in the United States is used to heat and cool buildings.
  • According to the Consortium of Energy Efficiency up to 50% more energy can be saved with proper installation, sizing and maintenance of commercial heating and cooling equipment.
  • Why it is so important to properly maintain your systems is to mitigate decreased efficiency, utility overpayment, discomfort, loss of productivity, premature replacement and higher repair cost associated to emergency breakdowns of these systems.
  • Proper filtration and frequency of changes in the first step in proper maintenance don’t let your buildings property manager dictate what is right for you, the one that pays the energy bills.
  • These strategies may be short-sighted, especially considering that enhancing the operating efficiency of your HVAC systems can reduce energy bills up to 20% without significant capital investment.
  • Many building owners unfortunately often feel that delaying filter change outs will save money, however while purchasing fewer filters reduces initial expenses, delaying filter changes outs causes the filter to run at peak energy usage which will cost more to operate and can do damage to the systems over time.
  • The energy used is directly proportional to the filter’s airflow resistance due to clogged filters that are not changed at regular intervals and the quality of the filter media being used in the system. Choosing high quality filters with high MERV ratings for best results and follow the manufacturers suggest intervals for best results and overall performance.
  • Filtration changes and quality is just the starting point for preventive maintenance, overlooking this very basic operational principal can have many detrimental effects on Indoor Air Quality, Bypass Air which contaminates the entire systems housing, coils, fans, motors and duct system and can increase HVAC operating costs. Choking your systems also has many other detrimental effects on the equipments life expectancy and will lead to costly repairs and or premature equipment failure.

Proper filtration is highly important but is just beginning to properly maintain your heating and cooling equipment but as a building owner or tenant this is an area that you should give input to with whomever is in charge of making these decisions on your behalf. True preventive maintenance should include at least two seasonal inspections for winter and summer start-ups, complete and comprehensive safety inspections, cleaning of burners, coils, fans, motors and condensate traps and replacement of belts annually. Also full systems checks of all relays, contactors and electrical components should also be part of the technicians check lists.
