Don’t Let Winter Weather Catch You off Guard

November 8, 2022

With the winter months right around the corner, inclement weather can hit when you least expect it. An unexpected shift in weather can impact your project’s schedule and throw a wrench in your perfectly curated plans.

Keeping an eye on the weather and having a plan in place for potential changes will not only help protect your project, but it will also bring you peace of mind.

We have put together an Emergency Weather Checklist that will minimize damage and reduce costly repairs in the case of inclement weather.

Plan Ahead!

Stay ahead of any potential harsh weather by prepping your facility inside and out.

It’s essential to stock up on supplies ahead of time so you are prepared with crucial items during a storm. This includes plywood, drain covers, and tarps, to name a few.

You should also maintain your HVAC system by doing regular preventative maintenance. This is a great way to ensure the protection of your property. 

HVAC systems are put under immense pressure, especially during cold-weather months, as they are working hard to heat large areas. While heat is being put to good use in the colder months, air-conditioning isn’t being utilized as often. Make sure to do proper maintenance on the units which can save you lots of time and money later down the road.

Why Preventative Maintenance is Important

We don’t believe in taking a reactive approach to maintenance. Instead, be proactive and address any concerns ahead of time so you aren’t surprised down the road.

Why is it better to take a proactive approach to maintenance?

  • Downtime is expensive – even if you aren’t working, money is still being spent. Save money and put it to better use by performing preventative maintenance!
  • Increased efficiency and performance – when your facility is in tip-top shape, the life of your machines are prolonged, repairs are minimal, and your business is thriving!
  • Top-notch safety – there is something to say about a safe, well-kept work area. When your employees are safe, it prevents on-the-job injuries and unwanted accidents.
  • Boosts customer satisfaction – it’s always nice to save money and prevent downtime, but building a long-lasting bond with your customers goes a long way! When you stay on top of maintenance, you avoid breakdowns that convey to customers that you care about what you produce, building trust and creating customers for life!
