Preventive maintenance

 

Preventive maintenance is often an aspect that is overlooked by the owners of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. The objective of preventive maintenance is to maintain the system in good operating condition to lengthen as much as possible its life. In addition, any HVAC system is equipped with an air filtration system that has the role to trap dust particles to provide a superior air quality. Therefore, for this system to be effective, filters must be changed regularly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                              

 

 

When a technician from Konsultec performs preventive maintenance, these tasks include:

 

The necessary adjustment of ventilation controls

  • Oil or grease the bearings

  • Insure there is no refrigerant leakage, to avoid polluting the atmosphere

  • Clean the condensate drain and down the pipes

  • Check the amperage of the system to ensure that energy consumption is low

  • Check the refrigerant pressure

  • Change filters

  • Check the drive belt, adjust or replace if necessary

 

Preventive maintenance is also the time when technicians can detect small problems and avoid the latter turns into major problems thus saving customers time and money.

Certain insurance companies offer their clients, premium reduction on (?…?) insurance policies to all holders on preventive maintenance contracts.

 

Our preventive maintenance service also includes a spring and a fall Inspection.
