1. Reduces major repair expenses.
Minor repairs and adjustments prevent major repairs and catastrophic failures that could require premature unit replacements.
2. Lengthens the life of the equipment.
Preventative maintenance allows a dealer to recommend updating existing equipment or components only when it is really needed, not because of poor maintenance. Regular maintenance improves the life of the equipment.
3. Maintains efficient operation.
Preventative maintenance maintains the highest energy efficiency and enhances the life expectancy of the equipment. Trained technicians know how, when and what components need lubrication and cleaning.
4. Saves money on or eliminates cost of needed repairs.
There are two areas covered on Preventative maintenance agreements; parts and/or labor (with several variations). The basic contract covers most small repairs with no extra labor costs involved if the work is done at the time of the scheduled maintenance. Most Preventative maintenance agreements also offer a price reduction for repair parts that are not covered under warranty.
6. Service by experienced, professional technicians.
Preventative maintenance technicians are well qualified to give advice on equipment and additional system needs. They have the proper tools and instruments to test, calibrate and repair equipment. They have immediate access to many replacement parts.
7. Protects equipment warranties.
The Preventative maintenance program maintains accurate records of maintenance and repair for better equipment management and warranty protection.
