With nearly one month of 2015 already in the books, some businesses are having trouble sticking with their New Year's resolutions. For many, the start of a new year means the enactment of real-world goals that took months to set into place. However, without the right framework in which to succeed, these resolutions are just numbers on paper.
Businesses more commonly place a high priority on energy efficiency. The goal is to reduce utility expenditures to a more manageable level so there is more money to go around in the budget. The first step is to identify how these expenses can be reduced, which, in most cases, lies in how much electricity buildings consume everyday.
For larger spaces like warehouses, factories and chemical plants, energy costs put a large dent in total business income. To simply power a building 24/7 that is hundreds of thousands of square feet means companies must have a constant source of revenue at all times to overcome these initial costs. And if one breakdown or malfunction occurs, the loss of production and repair costs can exceed millions of dollars.
Companies that rely heavily upon the performance of HVAC systems deal with these types of issues everyday. The only solution is to constantly monitor the output of HVAC units to make sure there are no unseen problems occurring.
Replacing HVAC coils
HVAC systems are vital to the overall operation of a number of industries, including manufacturing, automotive, wastewater treatment and oil refineries to name a few. These systems are responsible for maintaining proper air levels, which is no easy task when factoring in the amount of things that can go wrong.
The most common problem affecting the performance of HVAC units is allowing HVAC coils to be damaged without being replaced in a timely fashion. This case of negligence is one of the top causes of HVAC failures because coils are the main mechanism that allow air to be heated or cooled to an appropriate temperature.
In the presence of potentially corrosive elements and high levels of pressure, aluminum and copper coils can bend, break or simply degrade over time. However, this doesn't take as long as one might think. In fact, in weeks, coils can become fully damaged. With this in mind, businesses must be prepared to deal with these issues more frequently than they originally expected, or, perhaps, budgeted for.
To replace HVAC coils means to shut off the entire system for some time to allow new coils to be installed. But if money is the main concern to staying on top of financial resolutions, then it makes more sense to ensure that the replacement coils will last longer than the previous ones.
To accomplish this, coils are coated in a protective layer that prevents corrosion. This coating can help improve the longevity of the metals and keep an HVAC unit running for much longer. In turn, money is saved on maintenance checks and repair expenses.
