The reality is that while committing to a routine Preventive Maintenance program will decrease maintenance costs and emergency repairs, it will not eliminate them. At the end of the day, mechanical parts will fail. And when they do, you should rely on the unparalleled technical capabilities of United Mechanical to quickly and properly resolve any HVAC issue that may arise. And by properly, we mean using our engineering background to understand your entire HVAC system and address root problems for long-term efficiency and performance.

Typical Commercial HVAC Repair Issues
There are several common issues that can cause a facility manager to have to call for HVAC Repair Service. Among them are a bad compressor, condenser, refrigerant leak, cracked heat exchanger, bad combustion blower motor, gas valve and/or igniter modules.
However, before you do put in a service call, you might want to make sure a thermostat setting has not been changed at the actual thermostat unit or inside the automated building controls program. You would be surprised how often that happens.
Budgeting for Commercial HVAC Repair
The ideal thing for any facility manager to do is to be able to have funds set aside for urgent repairs. Developing a 4-5 year capital plan, as well as tracking and evaluating existing equipment can assist in the budgeting process. Your HVAC equipment tracking should include the following:
- Typical lifecycle of relevant equipment.
- Replacement date/age of your equipment
- Work accomplished or scheduled on each piece of equipment
- Associated warranties per piece of equipment

Preventive or Scheduled Maintenance offers the benefits of better performing equipment, extended equipment life, reduced repair costs, reduced down time and increased occupant satisfaction.
