“The bottom line: Optimizing your total cost of ownership (TCO) is not about finding the lowest price for your boiler. In fact, in the long haul, going the less expensive route can lead to costly interruptions for your business and high maintenance fees. Factoring durable and high-performing equipment, however, is the key to maximizing your TCO through operational savings…Simoneau can show you how to get there.”
As a business owner that needs to produce steam, it’s important to have the right equipment from the get-go. Although it may be tempting to purchase the lower-priced option when looking at your budget on a short-term basis, it’s important to consider the practicality and efficiency of your equipment and how it directly impacts your cost of operations. It’s not just about settling for any kind of boiler.
Down the line, using lower-grade equipment means dealing with steeper maintenance costs, recurring breaches and frequent repairs; the savings you thought you would be making are actually quickly spent, in some cases within a year.
At Simoneau, our TCO assessments show you how to avoid those headaches and give you an overall view of what you will be spending, not just in terms of equipment cost but also in terms of steam production…and how much you’ll be saving in a span of 20 to 25 years.
Our TCO breakdowns include fuel efficiency solutions designed to reduce fuel cost by as much as 4%, annual maintenance handled by our own boiler experts and the cost of high-quality steam production efficiency in relations to equipment replacement, downtime and rental. We also factor in our in-house solutions, including design, manufacturing and installation. Still not convinced? We top off our TCO breakdowns with a 5-year extended warranty.
Ultimately, when you deal with Simoneau, you’re paying much less for a higher quality boiler with a longer lifecycle.
With a TCO breakdown from Simoneau you’re seeing just how much you save in the long-term on the efficiency differential, thanks in part to deferred maintenance. With that guarantee in place, we’re willing to put our best foot forward and absorb the differential within a 36-month period.
Put simply, investing in higher quality equipment is in your best interest as it allows you to capitalize on your capex with the savings you make on maintenance and operations.
