Federal facilities rely on pumps, motors, fans, and other mechanical systems for everyday operations. These systems must be maintained and operated correctly to reach their full potential. Well-executed operations and maintenance (O&M) programs promote energy efficiency and life cycle performance and can save Federal agencies 5% to 20% on annual energy bills without significant capital investments.
