Preventative Maintenance

 

What is a Preventative Maintenance Agreement?

A preventive maintenance agreement is opportunity for a facility to eliminate expensive emergency repairs and down time. There are several different levels of preventive maintenance agreements mainly on electrical and HVAC equipment. Upon selecting the appropriate level of maintenance, an initial facility assessment will take place. Hadley Energy Solutions will document all HVAC, Mechanical, and Electrical equipment including age, model numbers, and current condition of existing equipment. We will inspect thoroughly to see if any immediate concerns need to be addressed. After data on all equipment is collected a report will be repaired. The report will include recommendations on any repairs if any. The report will also include a maintenance schedule for all equipment. Older equipment may require more frequent servicing while newer equipment may require less. Upon each scheduled maintenance, a site visit with a constant analysis of current conditions will be made. Frequency of maintenance is recommended by Hadley Energy Solutions but the decision is made by the customer on how often their equipment is serviced. Once a preventive maintenance agreement is in place, you can have peace of mind knowing your facility is operating at peak performance during the duration of the service agreement.

Different Levels of Maintenance Plans:

Level 1: Preventive Maintenance is a baseline agreement that covers a number of regularly scheduled maintenance visits each year. The technicians will thoroughly inspect all equipment, clean and test the components for proper operation When needed, worn parts such as belts and air filters are replaced. The number of maintenance visits you need and list of included maintenance tasks may depend on age and type of equipment, as well as operating conditions and usage requirements. A preventive maintenance agreement is the least expensive type of service contract.

Level 2: Full Labor agreement covers all the labor needed for repairs of replacements as well as for maintenance, but the customer is responsible for parts.

Level 3: Full Coverage agreement is the ultimate insurance policy, covering all parts and labor, emergency service and preventive maintenance. This option can save a great deal of money on expensive repairs. A full coverage agreement also allows you to budget for your HVAC and electrical repair expenses, and gives you peace of mind of not having unexpected surprises.
