The brilliant sunshine and heat of summer may be great for a vacation, but it can often put an added strain on work life and production. Summer is a great time to make sure you stay on top of maintenance of your facility.
Maintenance is the Key to Efficiency
Make sure your cooling system is ready when you need it. With the help of Lehman Daman’s HVAC technicians, your facility will be cool and comfortable while also saving on utility costs with an energy efficient system.
Maintaining Your Facility
Regular maintenance of your facility’s interior and exterior is critical in protecting the long-term value of your building.
Now is the Time To:
- Repair winter damage to sidewalks, asphalt and concrete
- Review parking lots for cracks, faded striping, broken curbs, etc.
- Freshen up your facilities paint and trim
- Review weather stripping and weather seals to keep cool air where it belongs
- Repair awnings and sunshades
- Review and repair outdoor break areas
Keep Cool the Best Way
Simple adjustments to your facility can help you maximize your energy efficiency and save money during the hot summer months.
Operate Your Thermostat Efficiently – Avoid setting your thermostat at a colder than normal setting when using your air conditioner. It will not cool your building any faster and could result in excessive cooling and unnecessary expense.
Keep Your Cooling System Running Efficiently – Change HVAC filters monthly to avoid overworking your equipment and lowering the indoor air quality of your facility.
Manage The Sunshine – Control direct sunlight and keep your facility cooler with solar screens, solar films, awnings, or vegetation.
Don’t Heat Your Facility With Lighting – Only about 10% to 15% of the electricity that incandescent lights consume results in light – the rest is turned into heat. Replace incandescent bulbs with CFLs to cut down on electricity costs and unnecessary heat.
Keep Hot Air Out – Seal cracks and openings to prevent warm air from leaking into your facility. Add caulk or weatherstripping to seal air leaks around drafty doors and windows.

HVAC for Honeywell Distribution Center, Groveport, Ohio
When Honeywell chose to consolidate their Central Ohio distribution facilities, they chose Lehman Daman. This expansion doubled their Groveport space to nearly 800,000 square feet of state-of-the-art industrial warehousing.
The buildout included a fully equipped and air-conditioned employee break room, offices, and restrooms in the new space, as well as a secure employee entrance and locker facility. Lehman Daman performed all design, electrical, HVAC, and finish work.
