Baumgartner went into detail about the value of implementing a long-term HVAC program.
“Putting in best practices and standards across an organization is extremely key in order to have the most effective total cost of ownership,” he said.
He expanded on key points that need to be a part of any facilities manager’s strategy, such as initial HVAC system and program evaluation, the value of collecting data over time, and the importance of compliance and execution of an optimized preventative maintenance program to impact the bottom line.
The pair also discussed some of the biggest challenges that facility managers face when it comes to maintaining HVAC systems.
They highlighted that facility managers are often faced with limited resources and constrained budgets that can result in reactive repairs and replacement instead of a predictive approach that reduces overall cost and extends the life of HVAC systems.
Other key topics that Baumgartner spoke to included common mistakes that facility managers make with regards to their HVAC programs and the importance of partnering with a proven and experienced HVAC program provider like Vixxo.
