Reactive maintenance happens after a breakdown which is costly and cause expensive downtime that often interrupt business. It can also cause secondary cost in production loss as well as dissatisfied customers.
Preventive maintenance is time based (Scheduled), during the service visit the system is checked. Depending on the service agreement and regulations different factors are documented. Today’s preventive maintenance –is often focused on “leak-detection” and a very basic checklist. Performance of the HVACVR systems is rarely checked during preventive maintenance visits.
Predictive maintenance is based on the condition of the HVACR system which is possible only when performance is continuously analysed and monitored. Enabling the service and maintenance to be planned based on need and therefore, avoid failures and performance drift. Making it both time and cost efficient.
