The annual cost of deferred maintenance is $5 million, higher for some companies. When you start to react to issues, rather than taking proactive measures to check, repair and upgrade existing systems, you could potentially increase costs 30 times more than the initial maintenance costs.
As a business owner or facility manager, you’re always looking for ways to streamline operations and reduce costs. With both budget and time restrictions, it’s common for organizations to defer, or postpone, system maintenance to a later budget cycle in order to minimize expenses and increase cashflow. However, deferred maintenance can lead to:
More unplanned expenses.
More safety risks.
More system downtime.
More production bottlenecks.
More missed profit opportunities.
Why You Should Invest in Ongoing HVAC System Maintenance
Heating and cooling contribute to about half of a facility’s energy costs. Without regular upkeep, a HVAC system will perform less efficiently, costing you more in the long run. System components will break down over time, which will force your HVAC system to work harder and more often.
Seemingly simple, air filter selection and maintenance are also essential to your HVAC system’s performance and longevity. Your filters directly affect airspeed, filter resistance, system life, fan efficiency, energy efficiency, and overall cost. Creating a proactive process for filter maintenance and replacement alone is critical for your business’ budget and operations, and can significantly reduce your deferred maintenance backlog.

Mike and his crew replaced my waste pipes. They took their time and did a great job making sure there were no leaks and cleaned up after they were done. Will continue to use them for other projects.
While we live several states away, we watch the videos that Pipe Doctor releases on Youtube. Mikey is extremely responsive on their social media platforms, even to people that are not their direct customers. If Pipe Doctor ever branches out to my area, we will absolutely use them for all our HVAC and plumbing needs.
Pipe Doctor is definitely an A++ local business that is amazingly professional, more than reasonable in pricing, and super super fast. They do not skimp in on using the best product and the services that they provide is second to none. They finished my water heater install same day in the snow within 2 hrs from call, negotiating, delivery and removal. Will use in the future without a doubt. Pipe Doctor second to none!
Daniel and Mike did a great job repairing my Navien. They were here right away and fixed the issue I was having. I would highly recommend Pipe Doctor!

This is my second year using Pipe Doctor for my HVAC maintenance. Mike and his technicians are simply the best in the business. They arrive on time, are courteous, and most importantly they know their stuff. They do the job right.
Pipe Doctor is such a pleasure to work with the customer service department is so efficient. The plumbers were on time and a pleasure to work with. Mike G is a real professional not only is he meticulous in his work, he cleans up and makes the place look cleaner than when he would started. Would highly recommend their service.
Mike and his crew are fantastic. Aside from exceptional work which is evident if you watch any of the YouTube clips, Mike’s knowledge is out of this world. Not only does he know his stuff, he also spent the time to make sure I had a solid background of the inner workings of the system. That’s very helpful to a homeowner!
