Description

Post hanc adclinis Libano monti Phoenice, regio plena gratiarum et venustatis, urbibus decorata magnis et pulchris; in quibus amoenitate celebritateque nominum Tyros excellit, Sidon et Berytus isdemque pares Emissa et Damascus saeculis condita priscis.

signis quis ignorat? Quae illi, exhausti sumptibus bellisque maximis, cum omnis Mithridaticos impetus totumque Pontum armatum affervescentem in Asiam atque erumpentem, ore repulsum et cervicibus interclusum suis sustinerent, tum, inquam, Byzantii et postea signa illa et reliqua urbis ornanemta sanctissime custodita tenuerunt.

Solution

The unit condenser coil and cabinet on the unitl were first cleaned. The condenser coil was coated with MicroGuard AD 35 siloxane coating to prevent corrosion and enhance energy efficiency.

The exterior cabinet was coated with ThermaCote ceramic coating to protect against corrosion and to provide a radiant barrier against solar heat gain, which reduces load and energy consumption. Exterior cabinet temperature was reduced from 135⁰F to 92⁰F. KWH data logger continued to collect data for 2 weeks after.

Implementation of the coating project on all of the units on the roof had a substantial positive impact on operating costs and the overall bottom line. Savings were achieved through energy consumption KWH, peak demand KW, reduced maintenance cost, reduced mean time to failure, and reduced capital cost replacement budget.
