Reactive maintenance and preventative maintenance are the two types of maintenance performed with commercial HVAC/R equipment. While these two may seem similar, there are many differences between them.
While reactive maintenance should only be used in worst-case scenarios, preventative maintenance is the much smarter choice as it can save you money as well as from stressful repairs in the long term. Another big difference is reactive maintenance is repairing or replacing when it is broken while Preventative maintenance is making repairs before breakage or equipment failure. Here are the ways that these two maintenance techniques differ.
- More Equipment Downtime
- Decisions Are Rushed, Little Time For Proper Execution
- Unpredictable Costs
- Possible Difficulty Of Parts Ordering & Replacement
- Less Equipment Downtime
- Decisions Are Well Planned, More Time For Execution
- Predictable & Lower Costs
- Hassle-Free Parts Ordering & Replacement
