Now is the time to service that chiller!


Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance. Pre-season maintenance is critical. It can help to avoid a system failure at literally the worst possible time. Neglecting your equipment can damage your system’s compressor or other components, messing with your costs and greatly increasing the risk of downtime when you can least afford it.


Research proves that regular maintenance can:

  • Cut unexpected breakdowns by 70-75%*
  • Reduce energy consumption by 25-30%*
  • Reduce downtime by 35-40%*
  • Lower equipment repairs and maintenance costs by 5-20%*
