Hot Summer Days and a Dirty Evaporator Coil Mean Big Headaches

Posted by Greg Frazier on Fri, Jun 26, 2015 @ 05:40 PM

It is every building owner’s worst nightmare in the dead of summer.  It is 98 degrees outside and your phone starts ringing… and ringing… and ringing. During the hot summer months your building’s air conditioning system becomes the lifeblood of your facility.  If your A/C goes down completely, or even if just has a day that it can’t keep up with the heat well, your phone is going to start to ring off the hook and it won’t stop until you fix the problem… or until the Fall… whichever comes first! When your air conditioner suddenly stops performing correctly, it could definitely be cause for alarm or sometimes it can be a simple fix; something as simple as a popped circuit breaker … or a little dirt. As a water treatment service provider specializing in boiler water treatment, cooling tower water treatment, and HVAC cleaning services, we see a lot preventable issues with commercial HVAC units.

Boiler 101: Why a Wet Seasonal Boiler Lay-Up May Be Right for You

Posted by Greg Frazier on Tue, Mar 31, 2015 @ 11:22 AM

Spring is finally here in the northeast! (Well sort of... it's still pretty darn cold.) And that means that it is time to consider how your boiler system will spend the next few months while it sits dormant offline. If you own and/or operate a facility with a commercial steam boiler that only gets seasonal use, then this topic is for you.

Boiler Water Treatment 101: Poor Steam Trap Maintenance

Posted by Greg Frazier on Thu, Feb 05, 2015 @ 05:58 PM

Would the owners of your company be happy if you took $50,000 of their money and set it on fire?  I know it seems like a silly question – because of course they would!  Yet every day, in thousands of facilities across the United States, failing steam traps go unchecked and the dollars in lost energy just pile up.  Failing steam traps are a major cause of energy loss in a steam system and can easily equate to serious dollars going right down the drain. Think about it this way:  Let’s assume, for the purpose of this example, that it costs $5 to produce every 1000 pounds of steam at 100 psi (depending on your system’s efficiency it could be much more) and that, at 100 psi, just one failed steam trap could potentially allow over 800,000 pounds of steam to escape your system every month.  That means that every month your facility could be losing over $4000 in energy!  One failed steam trap could quickly equate to over $50k per year right out the window.
