ENERGY REDUCTION INITIATIVE
The Fix it Guys are proud to be a partner in a revolutionary new global approach to energy conservation.
As we move forward into the future, we are increasingly aware that we must take action now and reduce our energy consumption. Energy efficiency is a key factor in becoming more sustainable and this is why we have focused on ways to reduce energy consumption and ultimately save on energy costs.
Two of the largest energy consuming products are refrigeration and air conditioning. Real dollar savings can be achieved by the efficient running of well-maintained equipment.
Our unique coating, once applied, is able to prolong the life of your equipment, increase efficiency and ultimately reflect in savings on your energy costs. We believe in working together to create a sustainable environment for the future.
EcoActiv CRC is a unique coating applied to the condenser units, coils, fins and fans of commercial HVAC units, air conditioning systems and refrigeration that will fundamentally reduce energy consumption due to the follow properties of the coating.
- The coating once applied will ensure that moisture/water does not build up and frost. Normally the refrigeration system would frost due to moisture and then the system would have to run a defrost cycle (heating) in order to eliminate the frost build up. EcoActiv CRC being hydrophilic, means that the water isn’t able to adhere to the surface.
- As the equipment is required to run the defrost cycle less frequently, this creates a greater life span of the equipment and less maintenance costs.
- The coating is also antistatic which eliminates contaminants such as mold and other bacteria from adhering to surfaces, leaving the equipment to run more efficiently and eliminating mold and bacteria being circulated throughout the space, making for a cleaner work environment.
Overall benefits of EcoActiv CRC:
- Healthy indoor environment
- Greater Efficiency
- Equipment that lasts longer
This program is designed to enhance existing maintenance programs, by demonstrating simple techniques to ensure that you are employing best practices and to ultimately save energy. Energy savings, of course, translates to dollar savings and a cleaner working environment. The technicians will clean your system including the fans and fins, flush the pipes to rid them of any blockages and apply a hydrophilic coating to protect the equipment for 12- 24 months. Our qualified technicians are not a replacement for your regular Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Mechanic. We recommend that you maintain your regular servicing by these professionals in conjunction with our program.
Reduced Energy Costs
The most amount of energy is consumed when the refrigeration switches to the defrost cycle and it is using energy to heat and melt the ice and then to cool again to maintain temperature.
Naturally, if your equipment is cooling and then having to heat (defrost), it will be consuming more energy. The cycle can occur more often if the system is not clean, using more energy.
The coating keeps the equipment clean and reduces or eliminates the equipment going into the defrost cycle.
As the coating will reduce the need for the refrigeration to work harder by not having to complete the defrost cycle, this in turn places less stress onto the system. Labored machinery means a higher cost to run.
The coating will also assist in maintaining your equipment with its antistatic properties by repelling dust and bacteria from adhering to the surfaces it will run more smoothly and have a longer lifespan with real dollar savings achieved by reduced maintenance and replacement costs in the long term.
In addition, an increase of wind speed will ensure that the cool air is distributed evenly throughout the space.
Healthy Work Environment
Often biofilm, made up of mostly body fats and fats from food, can build up in the drip tray of the system, as they are caught within the moisture in the air, circulated by the fans and eventually collect in the pan.
These fats block the drip line which can then overflow into the path of the fan, causing the water to then be sprayed throughout the area; additionally this water can contain contaminates. The mold and bacteria can readily circulate throughout a building as it is blown straight back through the fan system.
The coating, being a non-adhesive solution will eliminate build up, leaving your work environment cleaner and healthier.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
Our unique coating has assisted companies to achieve energy savings from 10% up to 48% therefore enabling them to reach targets for reducing their carbon footprint.
Long term use of the coating will ensure maximum savings and greatly contribute to you and your companies sustainability goals.
This makes using Ecoactiv CRC Coating not only a fiscally sound decision, but also an environmentally responsible one, too.
