The mechanical equipment in a building can be the largest single group infrastructure purchase during initial construction. This equipment, like all other pieces of equipment with electrical and moving parts, will naturally have its performance begin to degrade over time and hours of use. Preventative and routine maintenance will prolong the life of your equipment but a thorough equipment analysis will identify the current operational state of this equipment. Having a detailed equipment analysis performed will allow you to proactively budget for equipment replacements, based on your equipment status. Along with capital budgeting, an analysis will also help you plan and schedule maintenance prior to it becoming an emergency repair.
