Your Options When Winter Months Cause Chiller Concerns

Winter Has Arrived; J.C. Younger is Here to Help!

As we have seen this year, winter blasted in with wild temperature swings. For those chillers that aren’t prepared for freezing temperatures, you may experience shutdown below certain temperatures. No matter your troubles, the team at J.C. Younger are here for you. We work with companies all over the country, so we are well versed in the varying climates. We work with many companies and requiring chillers for their applications.

Caring for Chillers in the Winter

Preventive maintenance is a key to keeping your chiller systems working efficiently through the harsh, winter months. If you are located in part of the country experiencing freezing temperatures, it is important that you maintain your chillers or you may experience a decrease in performance or even a shutdown. If you don’t have a routine preventive maintenance plan, it is important to start one. It is always good to understand how to troubleshoot common problems that occur with chillers. It may not necessarily be the freezing temperatures.

Checking the levels of glycol is very important during the cold months. Not keeping the correct mix of glycol to water can result in freezing conditions that can cause severe damage to your system. Keep the chiller coils and condenser fans free of those pollutants that can build up and cause a decrease in output. Check for any buildup in the strainers, and check for any leaks that can cause freezing conditions to the system.

An Option for the Winter Months

A better option is using J.C. Younger’s winter chillers that are built specifically to handle the harsh temperatures during winter months. Not only do you not have to worry about your system malfunctioning, but you can also utilize this as your annual preventive maintenance downtime. If you have an older chiller that is temperamental to temperature drops, your business will benefit from a seasonal rental from us.

By renting one of our winter chillers, you get our JCY Advantage that includes our exceptional, 24/7 customer support. Our chillers are user-friendly, and most problems can be solved over the phone. Renting is also a great way to see the manufacturing excellence in our products. Whatever your business requires, we can customize a rental to your specific needs.

An Option for the Future

If you are in the market for a new chiller, and you have had problems with your current system, we would like to chat with you. We know chillers, and we have years of experience manufacturing and remanufacturing chillers. If you’re on a budget, talk with us about our remanufactured chillers. Again, we will customize a chiller to your specific qualifications.
