Don't let the worst of the cold and snow get the best of you, your building operations or your facility.

FIVE facility maintenance tips for winter weather health and safety:

» Test and inspect HVAC systems. Perform preventative maintenance.
» Make seasonal adjustments for building automation setpoints.
» Finalize your plan for snow and ice removal.
» Update your emergency response plan for frozen pipes, power outages and water leaks.
» Inspect vulnerable areas and take advanced precautions.

Be proactive. Have a check-off list and identify concerns before they become emergencies. Having outside services on board ahead of time for initial response, recovery and manpower can reduce downtime in the event of an emergency or unplanned shutdown.

Preparation is key. Contact us if your winter emergency plan needs updating or a second set of experienced eyes.
