WINTER IS COMING... ARE YOU READY?
FIRST POINT MECHANICAL IS!
The heating season is underway and First Point Mechanical has already been preparing customers for the cooler weather ahead.
A properly performed boiler tune-up includes:
If not performed yearly, the increase in fuel cost per facility will be costly as more than required fuel will need to be burned to provide the same heating results.
Make sure your chiller equipment is properly maintained with the following tips:
- Cleaning condenser tubes
- Oil samples
- Filter changes
This is a great time of year to begin the process of equipment replacement and/or upgrades if your system is in need. Prolonging this -many times lengthy process- can lead to possible issues of systems not being completed on time for next spring.
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.
