Unless you’ve been living in a cave your whole life, you know that today is Valentine’s Day. You may be celebrating with a significant other, treating yourself to a tub of ice cream, or hanging with some friends. But, have you ever thought about showing your air compressor system some love? With any healthy relationship, it takes time, effort, and a little bit of patience. Here are a few ways to keep the relationship with your air compressor happy and healthy.
Communication is Key
All good relationships are built on strong communication. The same can be said for maintaining a healthy relationship with your air compressor system. Periodic check-ins are great, but the real communication starts when you have a planned, thorough inspection. If you need some help with your communication skills and you’re not sure where to start, we at 3C like to think we’re the communication experts when it comes to inspecting your air compressors.
Let the Flame Burn Bright
Heat recovery is a simple way to benefit your entire facility. Compressor heat recovery systems can heat water to 158 °F. You can then recover up to 76% of that heat energy. With the energy recovered through hot air or water, many facilities can power other operations, such as boilers or heaters. Thus, saving your energy and money in the long run.
Be Less Demanding
Who wants to be in a relationship with someone who is always demanding something from you? Your air compressor sure does not! Avoid asking too much of your air compressor system, by making sure your compressor is the proper size and drive. If you have a relatively steady demand, try a fixed speed compressor. Selecting the right compressor can be tricky, luckily we have a blog for that.
Moral of the story, give your air compressor system some love, not on just Valentine’s Day, but every day of the year! If you need some advice, help, or are moving onto a new air compressor, we’re ready to help!
