Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays – Thank You to all of our CPS Customers

Thanks to our Customers …

The staff at Comfort and Process Solutions would like to wish all of our customers a very happy holidays as well as a big thank you for your business, your loyalty and your many referrals over the years.  You are the reason we continue to improve our services, grow our team, build new partnerships and continue our focus on timely, quality repairs, replacement and maintenance of your commercial HVAC systems.

We want to thank all of our clients who were kind enough to leave a positive review of their experience with CPS or for those who referred us to their colleagues and friends. In 2019, many of our new or first-time clients were referred to us by our existing customers. In the last four years, since Ted Reynolds and Jeff Fristoe took over the ownership of CPS, our business has grown so much that we needed to move to a larger facility in March of this year.   Our new location offers a larger storage facility with equipment yard to store your commercial HVAC parts and equipment, more parking and larger garage for storage and maintenance of our fleet of vehicles, and increased office space so our team can work more efficiently and increase our staff.

As we look over 2019, we are thankful for a busy year where we have served the following Kentucky Counties from east as far as West Virginia and as west as Indiana:

  • Lexington in Fayette County
  • Bowling Green in Warren County

CPS can Reduce your Stress during the Holidays and End of the Year

This is the time of the year that many company and organization’s staff are often out of the office, taking time off for family and friends or vacationing out of town for the holiday season. With less staff on hand, the stress levels can go way up if there is an HVAC, Chiller or Boiler emergency and no one with the expertise on site to troubleshoot.  There is no need to worry as CPS is here to help fill in the voids left by vital staff that are away during the holidays.

Since Christmas time doesn’t mean a holiday from breakdowns, our experienced, certified and factory-trained technicians are ready to respond to your immediate service need’s, new installations, preventative maintenance, troubleshooting, analytics, controls, service and repair or design and build.

This is the most wonderful time of the year to get your Boilers tuned and inspected.  In addition to the National Boiler Codes requirements for commercial and industrial boilers, your boilers should be tuned to ensure they are firing at optimal efficiency and safeties are working properly. Not only is this good business practice for the safety of your employees and the longevity of your equipment but the cost-savings of your energy expenditures throughout the year. (More information.)

We service the following brands of Boilers: AO Smith, Bryan, Cleaver-Brooks, H.B. Smith, Hurst, Kewanee, Lochinvar, Laars, Peerless, PVI, Sellers, Superior, Weil-McLain and more.  So give our staff a call with any of your Boiler questions, issues or preventative maintenance needs.

CPS’ End of the Year HVAC Checklist

Make your New Years’ Resolution for your business with energy saving, less breakdowns and reduced stress!  For your convenience, here is our end of year checklist for your business:

  1. Is your current preventative maintenance (PM) program serving your needs? Or more importantly, do you have a contract for preventative maintenance?  It’s never too late or too early to start a PM program, regardless of how new or how old your equipment is. Let’s start the new year out right, by setting up a PM program with a reputable, trusted local Commercial & Industrial HVAC company (like CPS!).  A PM program provides peace of mind for you and your maintenance staff with energy savings, reduction of untimely breakdowns, longevity of equipment, compliance of state and national codes, and increased efficiency of output.
  2. Do you need to upgrade your commercial controls system? Controls provide an integrated system of hardware, technology and programming to automate the functionality of the company’s buildings, factories and offices.  Control technology integrates every aspect of the building from the security systems, locks, lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration (HVACR), energy management, and fire protection. Rather than use proprietary controls, where only your controls’ brand manufacturer’s approved technicians can service, set, reset and manage, it may be time to consider Open Protocols. CPS offers Open Protocols controls that can be installed by our staff so that any one you choose can service, update and manage whether that is our staff, our technicians and whomever else you want to have access to manage. This way, you have increased freedom and more choices on determining your controls levels, troubleshooting, administrative access and who you’d like to manage your controls, whether it be a specific manufacturer of your controls system or your chosen service company.
  3. Is it time to upgrade your system? Now is the time to start planning on your energy, heating, cooling and dehumidification needs for your business in the Spring and Summer of next year.   Why? It can take approximately 4-6 weeks (even 6-8 weeks for certain brands) or longer to receive commercial or industrial HVAC equipment for your business so plan for two to three months’ lead time to design & build, order, install and troubleshoot your new systems.  Thus, it’s never too early to contact CPS to plan for your Spring time projects including new equipment installs of chillers and cooling towers. For example, school systems and universities should be ordering now for cooling system installations so that our technicians can complete the projects during Summer recess, causing less disruption and improved comfort when students and faculty return to class in the Fall.

Get Ready for the Summer Heat in the Bluegrass

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.

Get ready for the HEAT with a Preseason Cooling System Preventative Maintenance

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.

It’s that Time of the Year … to Schedule your Cooling Towers & Chillers Preventative Maintenance

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 Boiler Inspections & Preventative Maintenance Keeps Your Business Running

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”

Dehumidification Control for Commercial Facilities

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”
