When businesses reopen and the economy recovers, you’ll want to ensure that the machinery and tools you rely on to keep things operating smoothly are in good working order. Your Commercial chiller, which usually contributes to the most significant bulk of an organization’s energy usage, may need service at some point.
5 Warning Signs
The following are five potential warning signs that it is time to replace your Commercial chiller.
- The age or longevity of a Chiller:
- Scale can form, and components of a chiller system degrade rapidly over time.
- According to Chiller Service companies, the accumulation can reduce your chiller’s efficiency and mobility. A chiller has a life expectancy of 15 to 20 years on average.
Common problems seen during maintenance include
- Compressor failure.
- Leaks in the internal evaporator or condenser.
- Obsolete controls that are no longer maintained.
Even while frequent maintenance has the potential to delay sure signs of age, the breakdown of a part too soon may cause your company’s chillers to stop working.
Older Chiller Systems
Your organization may face more significant maintenance expenditures due to the parts of an older Commercial chiller wearing out.
Motors take more energy to create the same power level as they did when they were younger. When your Commercial chiller ages and its components begin to show symptoms of wear and tear over time, there are two possible results.
Either you will be compelled to replace the components, which will raise operating costs while decreasing efficiency, or you will opt not to replace the parts, which will have the reverse effect and result in a fall in efficiency while increasing operating expenses.
On the other hand, the cost of maintaining an outdated cooling system soon piles up.
Energy Bills Increase
The monthly energy bill has risen. Commercial Chillers currently use less power than they previously did, especially compared to previous device versions. To track how well your chiller performs, you must calculate the cost-effective service coefficient of performance for the Chiller (or COP).
Higher efficiency coefficients indicate a higher level of efficiency. The coefficient of performance, or COP, of the Commercial chiller equipment you use shows the heat extraction to energy input ratio.
According to Paul Appleby, author of “Sustainable Retrofit & Facilities Management,” a 25-year-old Commercial chiller has a coefficient of performance (COP) of only 3.5. Still, a chiller made today has a COP of more than 6.0.
Because current chillers are more energy efficient than earlier designs, you might save hundreds of dollars over the equipment’s lifetime (without accounting for additional savings).
Prone To Degradation
Another element to consider when determining whether or not to repair your Commercial chiller is the difficulty of obtaining replacement components. Given that your chiller is most likely the most expensive piece of equipment in your firm, it is critical to do periodic maintenance on any parts prone to degradation over time, such as condensers and cooling fans.
Regrettably, some older chillers may no longer produce components, making replacements challenging. If this continues to happen to your Commercial chiller, you should consider replacing it as soon as possible.
Difficulty in Executing Operations
The fact that simplicity of operation is one of the symptoms that a new Commercial chiller is needed is sometimes overlooked, but this should not be the case if your chiller is challenging to run, which may generate stress for your employees and significant expense rises.
Personnel in charge of current Commercial chiller operations benefit from enhanced working conditions due to more sophisticated control features that are also more energy efficient.
As a result of these advancements, contemporary Commercial chillers may be a fantastic addition to buildings that must meet increasingly stringent operational criteria.
Modern chilling systems increase performance, reduce operating costs, and provide you and your employees peace of mind.
Finally, if you have determined that acquiring a new Commercial chiller is the best course of action for you, we can assist you in picking the model that suits your needs and is most suited for your circumstances.
Our Commercial chiller specialists will work with you to choose a Commercial chiller that decreases your business’s negative impact on the surrounding ecology, improves the reliability of your company’s operations, and saves you money over the machine’s useful life. Our combined work experience is approaching ten years.
