Higher Quality, Better Service
Let’s start off with a recent experience:
A newer business in the area was having issues with their computer servers overheating. They called us to diagnose the problem. Upon inspection we noticed neither the system nor the ducts were properly sealed and the heat was leaking out of the uninsulated ducts, causing the servers to overheat in the same room. Upon further examination, we identified items that we would have done differently to prevent issues in the future.
What We Would Have Done Differently
David would have sealed up the ductwork in the utility room that housed the servers and the furnace. This would have limited the amount of heat escaping and overheating the servers.
The problem with the initial set-up was that the indoor system sat directly in the overflow drainage pan. If the system were to have leaks, the leaks would go right back into the ductwork potentially creating rust or mold. To prevent this potential problem, we set our indoor systems on special blocks within the drainage pan. Water can cause problems for the systems and surrounding objects and flooring. We also add multiple water overflow switches to turn off the system if the drainage pan starts to overflow.
The system had a very flimsy filter that had to be cut to fit every time it had to be changed. We also would have used a higher quality 4-inch media filter. These don’t need to be changed as often and they filter the entire space. Plus, the customer doesn’t have to cut them with scissors to fit.
David’s approach is always to look at the long-term. Saving money on the front end could cost more in the long run.
For example, David uses above-code insulated ducts. This prevents sweating on the inside of the ducts, and it keeps an accurate temperature reading of the air. Another thing we insulate is bath fan ducts, which helps with condensation when used while you are showering. We even take the extra step to pull the insulation all the way to the end of the duct and make sure it wraps the entire boot in the floor. We take the extra steps to make sure your equipment is registered so you receive the full parts warranty.
