Checklist: What to do if your Chiller Fails

If your chiller has failed, chances are you will need a temporary chiller solution until your chiller is fixed or replaced. 

If you’ve taken the time to create a contingency plan – that’s great, you’ll know exactly what to do. Just follow your detailed action plan. If however, you don’t have a plan in place, the best thing to do is call a chiller rental supplier and get them to come out and inspect your site. 

Depending on the critical nature of your chiller system, you may need them to come out as quickly as possible to determine the best solution. 

Speed up the process by answering the following questions: 
  • What does the chiller service? 
  • Is the replacement chiller needed right away or can it wait a few days?
  • What capacity is required (in kW)?
  • Is it air cooled or water cooled?
  • How will the temporary chiller be connected into the system?
  • Will you be able to use the existing pumps?
  • Is sufficient power available or will a generator be required? 
  • Where will the chiller be placed? Is there enough space close enough to the system? 
  • Is access to the site clear and can trucks get in, or is it more complicated? 
  • How will the temporary chiller be integrated into the existing building management system (BMS)?

Answering these questions will help your rental supplier to get your system back up and running. If you’re not sure how to answer, there’s no need to stress, the Active Air team can work with you to make sure the best solution is determined.
