As winter approaches and millions of businesses are finalizing their 2015 forecasts, energy costs may reveal room for improvement heading into the new year. Because companies' HVAC systems require a large amount of electricity for round-the-clock operation, it's important for businesses of all sizes to make note of just how much they are spending on their HVAC equipment.
Without proper monitoring and controls on temperature and airflow regulations, an HVAC unit's output can be hindered by deteriorating parts for a substantial amount of time. These unnoticed components can affect not only short-term energy costs but long-term financial goals as well. In the case of the new year, it's especially pertinent to settle all HVAC-related problems now so as not to carry over inefficiencies and financial drains into 2015.
Though building managers and engineers may be more apt to handle HVAC concerns, deeper issues may be at hand. For instance, even brand new equipment can break down fairly easily without initial precautions taken. In particularly corrosive environments, like wastewater treatment facilities, coastal refineries and chemical plants, lightly used equipment can become inefficient in a matter of weeks. This is due to higher levels of contaminants in the air and their negative impact on the metals that make up an HVAC unit.
Once corrosion sets in, there is very little one can do to reverse the effects and damages caused to the equipment. In most cases, parts will have to be replaced. However, the focus shouldn't be solely on replacing existing parts with newer ones, but on making a commitment to protect an HVAC system from future harm while promoting energy efficiency.
New coils can have an immediate impact
Replacement coils have the capacity to reinvigorate a once-malfunctioning system because the necessary functions of an HVAC will be greatly improved. Whether it's booster coils, water coils or any other custom coils that are being replaced, airflow and air quality will be positively impacted.
Not only do replacement coils place less stress on an overworked HVAC system, but they also can keep temperature and humidity levels within appropriate ranges, and do so at a reduced cost. An HVAC unit won't be wasting electricity because the new coils are optimized to work more efficiently.
Many businesses turn to Rahn Industries for the most advanced HVAC coils on the market. But Rahn doesn't just offer top-of-the-line coils, they also keep your company's interest in mind by applying a protective layer of coating overtop coils, which will make them last longer and resist corrosion in the future.
This process can keep your HVAC unit running like new and will prevent your company from spending too much time, money and effort on trying to combat rising energy costs. Once new coils are installed, your company will be on the path toward becoming more sustainable and having less of an impact on the environment while also overcoming your immediate needs to address failing equipment.
Before you head into the new year, make sure your HVAC system is fitted with Rahn coils.
Rahn has a full lineup of spray and immersion (dip)/ Bake protective coatings to meet your needs.
