Heatwaves –Reason To Keep Backup Commercial HVAC Compressors

Despite repeated warnings from weather forecasters regarding this summer, reality has continued to surpass all of our expectations. A record-breaking heat wave is reportedly wreaking havoc globally. India experienced one of the hottest summers in recent times in 2022, with 203 heatwave days, the most ever recorded.

Heat needs to be considered in your strategic thinking, regardless of who you are or where you are. Most people believe that the weather has become more unpredictable than before. It’s likely that hazardous new weather patterns will continue to develop in years to come.

Companies who depend on industrial-scale cooling are aware of their ongoing struggle with the heat and humidity. There are various ways that the record-breaking temperature might make your work more difficult, so that struggle is going to get much more intense. In other words, now is your greatest opportunity to become prepared for future.

When heat is at its worst, don’t rely on older commercial compressors. Preparation can be the difference between a little downtime and a catastrophic failure when it comes to the functioning of commercial compressors. That is especially true in a climate where summers might be riskier (and more expensive) than ever. You must carefully examine your compressor fleet.

The normal service life of a modern compressor is between 8 to 10 years, with efficiency beginning to decline in the second half. As we’ve previously stated, the compressor is not the root cause of the majority of HVAC system problems. Compressors seldom malfunction without notice when they are running normally. For normal operation, all compressors must operate within a certain temperature range. While some are made to withstand high ambient temperatures, others are not. Higher temperatures will undoubtedly force your HVAC compressor to work harder, regardless of the design. That could speed up its aging process.

While it’s crucial to have the appropriate maintenance schedule in place and maintain enough of replacement compressor parts on hand, we also advise taking an additional step: Ensuring you have backup reconditioned compressors on hand so broken compressors can be replaced immediately. In engineering, one of the most effective strategies to avoid failure is to give a system more redundancy. For the majority of enterprises, this alternative hasn’t been at the top of the list due to the significant cost required to get a new OEM commercial compressor. However, there is now a choice that greatly reduces the cost, regardless of your company’s size or sector.

Contrary to popular belief, a rebuilt compressor is not the same as a remanufactured compressor. In other words, there’s no way to tell what, if anything, you’re receiving with a refurbished device. Before being added to the final inventory, remanufactured compressors go through a thorough disassembly, cleaning, construction, and inspection procedure carried out by experts.

The device is entirely dismantled and thoroughly cleaned during remanufacturing. All parts are examined, and any replacements that are required are made. The reassembled equipment is then put through a rigorous testing process to make sure it functions properly. This guarantees that it will be prepared for eight to ten more years of service. You may be able to save anywhere from 10% to 30% or even more when purchasing a refurbished industrial compressor. Additionally, delivery is typically days or even weeks quicker helping your business in overcoming the constraints of today’s supply chains.

Remanufacturing means you can carry on your operations as normal by bringing the compressor back up to all applicable performance and environmental requirements. In a world where just a few days of HVAC issues may have a significant impact on staff and the public, it makes a huge difference.

To battle the heat in a world that is becoming hotter all the time, you need commercial HVAC compressors. However, how many should you have ready? This is dependent on utilization, the number of temperature zones, and other system architectural elements. Our experts in remanufacturing can assist you in planning more effectively and equipping your business HVAC system for the future.
