The U.S. Department of Energy's Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) defines O&M as "the activities related to the performance of routine, preventive, predictive, scheduled, and unscheduled actions aimed at preventing equipment failure or decline with the goal of increasing efficiency, reliability, and safety."

Proper maintenance practices can lead to substantial energy savings and increase the equipment's life span and maintain occupant comfort. Using straightforward O&M best practices can "save an estimated 5 to 20 percent on energy bills without a significant capital investment."2
