Almost that time again...
A few tips to keep your air conditioning unit safe over the winter.
Cold weather will soon be here! Think about how to keep your air conditioning system in tip top shape for next summer!
These systems are designed to be outdoors. However, you can do your part to ensure they are protected during the winter months.
Pick a nice early fall day to prepare your a/c for winter. Ensure it is a warm day so that it will be able to dry out completely.
Remove leaves, grass, bugs, bird droppings or any other debris from the unit.
Ensure that the power is off to the unit.
If you have a cover for it, use it. Make sure that it fits properly so rodents or birds don't build their nests in it. You can even put something like a brick on top of it or use a bungee cord, to make sure it doesn't blow off.
It's a good idea to cover any exposed pipes with foam pipe covers. Cut them to the correct length and tape them together with duct tape, if needed.
Throughout the winter, you should periodically check that there are no animals inside and brush the snow off.
These simple tips should help your air conditioner last for many summers to come.

"A 'best for the airport' approach."
They most recently redesigned our aircraft lavatory dumping facility to address our heating concerns. This facility, with its high gaseous presence is now running at optimum performance. They take a 'best for the airport' approach and offer advice and solutions that gain efficiencies in both financial and people resources. Our tenants and restaurants have also retained their services for all their plumbing and HVAC needs.

“Quality of workmanship was excellent.”
We recently worked with Millenium on the construction and start-up of a medium sized industrial pilot plant near Edmonton. Their on-site staff was professional and the quality of workmanship was excellent. They demonstrated an approach of problem solving throughout the process. We would certainly be pleased to work with them on future projects.
“I was quite impressed.”
We had a tour of a newly built industrial cannabis facility. I have visited several cannabis facilities, as well as pharmaceutical plants and I must say, I was quite impressed. The installation is, in my opinion, of the highest quality covering many operational details. I am confident in recommending Millenium.
