Five Reasons 2023 Is the Year of Planned Building Maintenance

If you’ve spent much of this week staring at your 2023 building operations budget looking for inspiration, we have a tip for you: If you don’t already have a planned maintenance agreement for Service support for your commercial, school or government offices, now is the ideal time to add that line item.

Five key reasons a planned maintenance agreement is a savvy investment for your 2023 budget:

1. Rising interest rates and Inflation
Economists expect pricing volatility to remain a challenge into 2023, with rising interest rates likely as a counter measure. Ensure top performance and efficiency of your building’s equipment with experienced, 24/7 Service support at a set rate.

2. Supply chain and parts shortages
Equipment failures and emergency repairs greatly escalate costs and are the quickest way to blow your building operations budget. Though shortages affect all providers on a global scale, having a Service team that understands your equipment and diagnoses potential weaknesses early will help ensure needed parts are on hand before you suffer downtime.

3. Labor shortages
The trained skills gap is real; if an in-house technician leaves, how long will it take you to fill that position? According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 8 million skilled-labor jobs were lost from the labor force during the pandemic. Although half have been filled, 4 million vacancies remained in industries including construction and facilities and service maintenance nationwide.

National Association of Workforce Boards President Ron Painter said the so-called "Great Resignation" was fueled by many experienced trades workers taking early retirement, wanting to work from home, or finding less labor-intensive jobs.

4. Extend the life of your equipment
The leading causes of equipment downtime are:

  • Aging equipment
  • Mechanical failure
  • Operator error
  • Lack of time for maintenance
  • Poor equipment design


5. Peace of Mind
The reliability and efficiency of your mechanical and plumbing equipment impact the comfort and productivity of clients, tenants and employees.
