A Facilities Maintenance Technician is responsible for a variety of issues and related improvements of a building’s HVAC/R and plumbing systems, with an emphasis on performing preventative, predictive and unscheduled maintenance as needed.
Depending on the size of the facility and sophistication of the HVAC/R systems, the Facilities Maintenance Technician performs preventive maintenance tasks on all HVAC/R equipment as directed by the Lead Technician or Manager, or in the case of a smaller facility, act as the Lead Technician. Work includes troubleshooting, installing, repairing, replacing, and maintaining HVAC/R systems and components such as boilers, chillers, pumps, motors, air handling and refrigeration equipment, utilizing plans, specifications, and verbal instructions.
While the HVAC/R systems would be the Facilities Maintenance Technician's primary focus, he/she might be required to take on other tasks such as maintaining the facilities plumbing systems, doors and locks, and making other necessary repairs in the building.
