4 Phases of Planned Maintenance: A Comprehensive Guide

When it comes to keeping your air conditioning system running smoothly and efficiently, planned maintenance is essential. But what exactly is planned maintenance? It's a process that involves four distinct phases: corrective, preventive, risk-based, and predictive. Each phase has its own purpose and benefits, so let's take a closer look at each one. Corrective maintenance is the first phase and involves repairing any damage caused by wear and tear on the system and its parts.

This type of maintenance focuses more on repairing the part that could cause a fault than focusing on all the parts. The second phase is preventive maintenance. Here, a technician inspects all the functional components of the system and repairs them in order to improve the average lifespan of your HVAC appliance. Risk-based maintenance planning is similar to preventive maintenance, but with some variations.

This type of maintenance helps you understand the potential problems your HVAC appliance may encounter in the future. Finally, predictive maintenance uses Internet of Things (IoT) technology to detect air conditioning problems and their efficient solutions. This approach requires more advanced monitoring technology than risk-based maintenance and allows you to schedule preventive maintenance based on actual performance, rather than making guesses about when the system might fail if left unattended for too long. By understanding each phase of planned maintenance, you can ensure that your HVAC appliance is well taken care of and that any potential problems are addressed quickly and effectively.
