Planned maintenance is an important part of facilities management. Most facility professionals can name dozens of tasks as it relates to their HVAC equipment – filter & belt changes, coil & tube cleanings, etc. But what about your Building Automation System (BAS)? There is a common misconception that BAS’ are “set-it and forget-it”, but did you know that you could be missing out on valuable cost savings and asset life-extension by not employing a planned maintenance strategy for your BAS? In this vendor-neutral presentation, we will discuss preventative maintenance strategies for your BAS and best practices for strategy development. If you are looking to learn more about Building Automation Systems and how to optimize your system, this presentation is for you.
Join us at Sake in Latham at 4:30PM on April 19th for the presentation with Happy Hour to follow! Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, April 17th.
