Spring has sprung: cleaning your cooling towers according to ASHRAE Guidelines

Longer days and warmer temperatures are welcome changes as winter gives way to spring. Seasonal changes also mean that it is time to begin preparing to restart your cooling system after its long winter layup, so that you’ll be ready for the first warm days of the cooling season. ASHRAE Guideline 12-2000 requires cooling towers to be “spring cleaned” and disinfected before being placed back into service. The precise steps depend on whether the system was fully drained at the end of the previous season (dry layup) or partially drained (wet layup).


Our technicians can help keep your chillers and cooling towers operating safely and efficiently for years to come. If you would like to schedule a free consultation to help prevent equipment deterioration and dangerous upticks in Legionella, give us a call today at 866-264-8453.
