Winter is fast approaching, and freezing weather can catch building crews by surprise, even across the sunny Southwest. Don’t let an overnight cold snap put a strain on your building’s operations.
Even if it seems like everything is running smoothly, it’s still wise to take care of your building as the weather changes.
As a quick guide, review TDIndustries’ essential checklist for mechanical, electrical and plumbing winter maintenance.
The key to avoiding costly repairs and downtime in your buildings is proactive maintenance. Most issues that turn into big emergency repairs or replacements could be avoided if your equipment is properly maintained.
We recommend quarterly planned maintenance on your HVAC, plumbing and electrical equipment.
Specifically, electrical (and/or natural gas) equipment can feel the strain of a greater load during the winter months thanks to increased use of heaters. Conversely, your air conditioning units, chillers and cooling towers don’t get as much use during winter, so it’s actually a good time to maintain and service them as they’re being sparingly used. And cold air can wreak havoc on pipes, especially if there’s already an unknown leak or corrosion. Being proactive in all three of these areas can help save you from bigger issues down the road.
