MAINTENANCE FOR PREVENTION
Our tailored plumbing preventative maintenance initiative encompasses comprehensive testing, treatment, and the generation of an exhaustive report on your plumbing and drainage systems.
For proprietors of multi-unit residential or commercial complexes with standard plumbing systems, our maintenance programs are designed to enhance system efficiency and generate substantial cost savings on both energy consumption and repairs. In many cases, these savings can outweigh the investment in our preventative maintenance programs.
All activities related to preventative maintenance and testing are meticulously documented in our transparent and detailed reports.
MITIGATING SCALE ACCUMULATION
Our team of experts specializes in the removal of scale and corrosion from aging water heaters, thereby not only reducing energy consumption but also extending the lifespan of the equipment.
What triggers the accumulation of scale?
Southern Alberta is known for having some of the hardest water in Canada, rendering our water-using appliances vulnerable to scaling issues. The presence of dissolved calcium and magnesium solids in hard water leads to their deposition on metal surfaces at heat-exchange points. This phenomenon occurs in boilers, hot water tanks, heat exchangers, and even your tea kettle.
How does scale accumulation impact equipment and costs?
Scale acts as an efficient insulator. Even a layer as thin as 1/16″ (1.5 mm) on heat exchanger surfaces, such as the fire tubes in your hot water tank, can result in increased energy consumption. The thickness of the scale directly correlates with the costs incurred:
1/16″ (1.5 mm): +10% energy usage
1/8″ (3.0 mm): +25% energy usage
1/4″ (6.0 mm): +40% energy usage
In Calgary, it’s not uncommon for scale buildup to reach 3/4″, potentially leading to a staggering +90% increase in energy usage. Consider the prospect of halving your water heating expenses simply by eliminating accumulated scale.
Can scale accumulation be addressed and rectified?
Absolutely. Prevent Mechanical possesses the expertise required to assess your system and formulate an effective scale mitigation plan.
