How to Lower Your Equipment Cost of Ownership

The true cost of equipment is more than just the original purchase price. Costs like installation, repair, replacement parts, and utilities add up over time. These tips can help you keep costs low.

Embrace Preventative Maintenance

Commercial foodservice and beverage dispensing equipment gets heavy use over time. Refer to the manufacturer’s manual provided with the equipment for guidance on how to perform regular preventative maintenance. This can include advice on things like cleaning, checking gaskets, descaling, or recalibrating thermostats. Equipment kept in peak condition is less likely to hog power, waste water, or need replacement before its expected lifespan is reached.

Use Genuine OEM Parts

Using the parts specified by the original manufacturer of the equipment safeguards the warranty. Further, manufacturers design and test their equipment using specific parts. Sourcing genuine OEM replacement parts when you need repair means the equipment will run more efficiently and the repair will most likely last longer, saving you time, service calls, and downtime.

Find a Trusted Partner for Replacement Parts

Nobody plans for equipment breakdowns. When they happen, it’s critical to have a regular relationship with a parts and service partner who knows your business and can get you up and running, fast.
