Improving Comfort (temperature) and Process (functionality) for your Business during the Summer Heat
Summer officially started on Saturday, June 20, 2020. But as most Kentuckians know, Summer temperatures usually arrive in May and usually extend to late September, sometimes longer. That means commercial and industrial cooling systems are extended as well as their Chillers and Cooling Towers are running continually for months for those using their systems for the comfort for their staff, customers, students and patients; and cooling systems used for process (whether for manufacturing or industrial plants) are in use all year round.

It seems a bit too early to be talking about Spring or even Summer weather when the temperatures are still hovering in the 30-40’s this week and talk of possible flurries in the forecast, but here in the Bluegrass, everyone knows how quickly the weather can change.
“Welcome to Kentucky, the only state where you’ll wear shorts one day and a snow suit the next.”
While it doesn’t seem possible now, within just a few weeks’ time, our commercial clients will need to turn on and utilize their cooling systems, after months of inactivity. To ensure functionality and efficiency when needed, our Cooling Preventative Maintenance includes a tune-up, testing and troubleshooting of the following:

Whether manufacturing, industrial, corporate, healthcare or education, each company or organization has a diverse staff of Maintenance Technicians on hand to handle technical and equipment issues, address emergencies, and hopefully accomplish preventative maintenance on necessary systems. Depending on the industry, the Maintenance Technician must be a ‘jack of all trades’ and wear many hats during the average workday. According to SHRM.org, their job objectives are diverse in nature:
“The maintenance technician position is responsible for performing highly diversified duties to install, troubleshoot, repair and maintain production and facility equipment according to safety, predictive and productive maintenance systems and processes to support the achievement of the site’s business goals and objectives.”
Is your Cooling System Ready for the Summer Heat?
It’s Summer in the Bluegrass and the increasing temperatures and humidity are having businesses turning up their cooling systems, often running their systems twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. An inefficient or damaged air conditioning system in the heat of Summer can result in uncomfortable working conditions which can lead to less productivity of your staff or worse yet a temporary shutdown of your business. A breakdown in a manufacturing cooling system can lead to a full factory shutdown to ensure the safety of your staff, as well as prevent damage to your equipment and property, which can also lead to a significant loss of production.

We can still feel the chill in the air in the mornings here in the Bluegrass, but as any true Kentuckian knows, “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change.” In just a few weeks, or even days, we know we’ll be sweating out the warmer weather. When it comes to business owners, property managers, school and organization maintenance supervisors, they understand the importance of a properly and efficiently functioning cooling system for the comfort of the staff, students, patients, and reliable process cooling for product manufacturing, as well as the overall operation of the facility.

The holiday season has passed, but the freezing temperatures are still here reminding us that Spring is still a few months away. We hope that the famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, will not see his shadow on February 2nd but if he does, it gives our commercial and industrial clients six more weeks to get ready for the warmer weather. Mid-January to mid-February is the perfect time to call Comfort & Process Solutions to schedule your Preventative Maintenance (PM) for your Cooling Towers and Chillers.

Commercial boilers are pressurized systems that burn combustible fuel or use electricity to heat water that is used to provide heating in your building or for process. Some types of boilers use the hot water itself, while others heat and convert the water to steam.
Depending on your company’s product and processes, commercial boilers can be used for heating but also for production and manufacturing. There are four main types of boilers: Read More “Commercial Boiler Inspections & Preventative Maintenance Keeps Your Business Running”
What is Dehumidification?
During these dog days of summer, as we beat the heat and humidity, we thought it would be a good time to talk about Dehumidification in Commercial HVAC systems. Dehumidification is the process in which moisture or water vapor is removed from the air keeping the DB (dry bulb) temperature constant. Dehumidification is a psychometric process, which includes dehumidification during the heating or cooling process. Since we’re in mid-August, let’s discuss the cooling process specifically, which is obtained when the air is pushed through and over coil where either the cool refrigerant, chilled water or cooled gas is passed. Now that the air is cooled, how is it dehumidified? Read More “Dehumidification Control for Commercial Facilities”
