Believe it or not, summer is right around the corner. Aside from hitting the beach and soaking up the sun, it’s also time to start preparing your facility for the summer heat. We often think about outfitting our facilities for colder months, but it’s just as important to consider compressor maintenance before the summer heat sets in. With hotter and more humid weather, compressor loads can easily reach peak levels and cause energy consumption to rise.
What’s one of the smartest ways a manufacturing facility can save on energy costs over the long term? If you’re thinking along the lines of compressed air efficiency then you’re correct. The single biggest cost associated with producing compressed air is the energy required to power the compressor. To save money in the long run, it’s good practice to maximize compressed air energy efficiency.
