Glycol is commonly used in closed-loop HVAC systems which provide heating and cooling. The glycol solution is circulated through the system’s pipes, carrying thermal energy to and from the heat exchangers. Although glycol is an efficient and reliable heat transfer fluid, it is not immune to failures that can cause costly downtime and equipment damage. […]
How to Maintain Your Glycol Water System
Maintaining a glycol water system is crucial for ensuring the efficient operation of your HVAC system. Glycol, a type of antifreeze, is added to the water in these systems to prevent freezing and overheating. Glycol however, requires a certain level of maintenance and you cannot just “set it and forget it”. Here’s how to maintain […]
Why is Glycol Lab Testing Important?
Many commercial buildings use closed loop systems as part of their HVAC operation. In the winter, it is important to protect these systems from exposure to the cold. To prevent freezing, glycol is normally added to these loops to maintain operation. However, simply adding glycol to the system once won’t provide permanent protection, and the […]
How is Glycol System Testing Performed?
If you operate HVAC systems that require the addition of glycol, you may not have realized that the glycol content needs regular testing. Failure to properly test your system’s glycol can result in overlooking signs that your system could have issues or could be failing. Lab testing is the solution to this problem. Consistent testing […]
