Mechanical draft cooling towers, which leverage a fan and gearbox, need regular mechanical maintenance to remain fully operational. With more mechanical parts than other cooling towers, maintenance is a key aspect of operating costs and efficiency.
We recently invested in a leadership workshop with renowned speaker and coach Steve Thomas. The workshop focused on seeing workplace challenges in a new light. We plan to build on a culture of leadership and excellence through the lessons learned in this workshop.
At Donnelly Mechanical, we believe in the importance of giving back to the community. On April 7th, we were on hand to support the National Kidney Foundation during its 10th Anniversary Springtime in New York Gala right here at the Jazz at Lincoln Center. It was an event to remember.
If you’ve worked with the Donnelly Mechanical team, you might have met our former intern, Tom Parisi. Tom is a hard worker who brings his all to everything he does – traits we’re confident will serve him well after the huge career news he just got. Yes, our very own Tom Parisi will be playing with the National Hockey League as part of the Montreal Canadiens!
Reducing environmental impact is a key concern of facilities managers throughout New York City. The most recent generation of equipment offers greater energy savings than ever before, but there are still many opportunities to be leveraged. The Copeland Digital Scroll Upgrade Kit represents a fast, easy and efficient way to improve HVAC compressor performance.
When it comes to optimum performance from HVAC systems, a regular preventative maintenance schedule goes a long way. However, there are some situations where this won’t do the trick. Perhaps you’re just getting started with structured maintenance and your system needs significant work – or maybe you’ve got special modernization plans in mind. Maybe you're managing HVAC strategy for an entirely new structure.
The efficiency of your HVAC system is a major factor in energy expenditures each year. As large commercial structures in New York City come under increasing scrutiny for their environmental impact, enterprises can save money and align with the regulatory climate by ensuring HVAC components work at peak efficiency.
If a commercial HVAC system breaks down in the middle of the work day, it can be a disaster for everyone involved. In large commercial buildings, an efficient HVAC system is essential for basic temperature regulation. No matter how sound a building's outer envelope is, temperatures will plunge if HVAC mechanisms aren't in place in a New York City winter!
