Why Preventative Maintenance?

A strong HVAC maintenance program isn’t an option; it’s a must.

Think of preventive HVAC maintenance in the same manner as preventive maintenance for your car: If you don’t change the oil and replace belts and filters, the engine will stall, lock up and the vehicle won’t operate. The same holds true for HVAC systems.

How to get started with your HVAC Preventative Maintenance Program:

Getting started is simple.  Call Excelco today and we will schedule a brief discussion to learn about your business and a site assessment to survey the equipment at your location.  We will then submit a proposal with recommendations based on your business objectives.

A viable preventative maintenance program will extend the life of your equipment, lower operating expenses and protect your investment.  At a minimum, a good preventative maintenance program includes the following:

  • Inspection and service of equipment based on manufacturer guidelines.  This includes condition of filters, coils, belts, wiring and major mechanical components.
  • Coil cleaning on an annual or semiannual basis
  • Inspection of condensate pans to ensure they are clean and free of standing water and corrosion
  • Inspection of doors and access panels to ensure proper seals and functionality
  • Assessment of humidity and set point readings

Our custom solution offers a tiered structure that will fit the needs and budget for any facility.
