As the weather heats up so will the demand on your rooftop units to provide comfort and cooling reliably and consistently.
Performing proper spring maintenance on your rooftop units will help to eliminate unexpected breakdowns, loss of cooling and unplanned costs
Condenser coil cleaning could be done at this time but we typically recommend performing this after the cottonwood in your area is done flying.
It is important for customers to brush off coils if possible as sometimes the cottonwood season could last 6-8 weeks depending on your proximity to cottonwood trees.
Proper condenser coil cleaning should be performed immediately following the end of the cottonwood flying as this will help drive down electricity costs, along with helping to prevent extensive wear on cooling systems during our extreme hot summer days.
Reduce energy costs, enhance comfort controls and reduce equipment footprint
With only two existing thermostats for over 14 classrooms and offices, Loyola Academy was looking for a better way to control the temperature in each classroom and office. Being located in the basement, the new system also had to be able to dehumidify to maximize its' occupants comfort.
With limited space above the ceilings, Loyola Academy and First Point's engineers worked together to find a system that would meet both the space limitations and provide additional comfort controls to the teaching staff.
First Point Mechanical designed and installed the Mitsubishi VRF system that provides each classroom and office simultaneous heating and cooling . This project turned two thermostats into 14 individual controlled zones! This project also freed up mechanical room space and allowed the building to utilize this additional space for storage and classroom use.
