ATLANTIC CITY, NJ - During the discussion of the forum “Methods for Estimating Maintenance Costs,” it was noted that no original maintenance cost data have been surveyed since about 30 years ago. An attendee declared, “My guess is that 1970s data does not reflect current conditions.”

An engineer said that maintenance cost is part of life cycle cost analysis. "How do you justify the numbers? Your analysis is seen as flawed if you can’t justify your numbers."

ASHRAE would like to get data from a significant number of companies to develop a statistically valid sampling of maintenance cost information.
