Eye on HVAC: Database of Service Life and Maintenance Costs
The purpose of the ASHRAE database is to provide current information on service life and maintenance costs of typical HVAC equipment. Engineers depend on accurate owning and operating data to make decisions involving the life cycle and functionality of buildings. But a lack of sufficient, up-to-date data makes it difficult to provide a solid basis for those decisions. Previous efforts to collect data through traditional survey methods have produced less-than-acceptable results.
