Budgeting for Commercial HVAC Equipment Replacement
The ideal thing for any facility manager to do is to be able to have funds set aside to cover HVAC equipment replacement projects. Developing a 4-5 year capital plan, as well as tracking and evaluating existing equipment can assist in the budgeting process. Your commercial 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
A Case for Early Equipment Replacement
There are several arguments to be made for replacing equipment proactively instead of waiting until they fail. Based on lifecycle charting, you should now be able to determine when that might be in your case. Often times, failure happens on the most extreme temperature days and the biggest consideration is the impact on your facility and its occupants. Getting a replacement as quickly as possible then becomes a priority, but that may mean having to accept less than an optimal replacement unit for your purposes because it is the first one available.
- You can no longer get parts and are unable to make repairs
- Repairs will exceed the cost of a new unit
- The equipment is nearing the end of its useful life and you want to replace it now before it causes downtime
- You want to upgrade to more energy efficient equipment
