Stay cool and stay prepared for the hot summer months ahead!

With hot temperatures forecasted over the weekend, it’s important to assess whether your refrigeration and HVAC assets are ready for the summer. The UK experienced temperatures in excess of 40 degrees last year, and it’s essential to have a plan in place to handle the high ambient conditions.

As refrigeration and HVAC experts, we understand that different system design parameters impact how your equipment operates in higher ambient temperatures. Some potential strategies to consider include:

1. Enhanced Maintenance: Regular maintenance and inspections are crucial for identifying problems before they occur, especially in high ambient temperature periods. Inspections should include check-ups of system pressures and refrigerant levels, cleaning the coils, filter changes, and servicing of electrical components.

2.Increasing the size of the condenser: Upgrading the size of these components can help your system handle higher ambient temperatures and improve the overall efficiency of your HVAC and refrigeration systems.

3. Utilizing Adiabatic Cooling: Adiabatic cooling is an effective strategy that adds water vapor to the air stream passing over the condenser. This process reduces the temperature of the air and improves the overall cooling of your system.

4. Load Shedding: Load shedding is a strategy that powers down non-essential systems during peak demand periods, reducing the overall system load and ensuring that essential systems, such as refrigeration and HVAC assets, are operating at their best.

Implementing a comprehensive refrigeration and HVAC asset maintainence program can help identify and address potential issues, ensuring your assets are running efficiently and effectively during the hottest months of the year.

As we move into the summer season, it’s crucial to stay ahead of the curve and ensure your refrigeration and HVAC assets are ready for the high ambient temperatures. By applying the right design parameters, utilizing adiabatic cooling, load shedding, and implementing a proactive maintenance program, you can improve the reliability and performance of your refrigeration and HVAC assets.

Stay cool and stay prepared for the hot summer months ahead!
