Chiller Repair Services

Chillers are an essential component of industries all over the world. They’re used in HVAC systems, plastic production, food processing, medical facilities, chemical manufacturing, and more. Any disruptions to the chiller could cause damage to products and affect the safety of the indoor environment.

At Peterson Mechanical, our trained technicians install, repair, replace, and maintain each type of HVAC system available. If you are unsure whether it is time to repair or replace your industrial chiller, our team is here to help.

Should You Replace Or Repair Your Chiller?

As chillers age, the cost of maintenance and the risk of system failure rises. Determining whether it is best to repair or replace your chiller depends on a number of factors, including how well maintained the system is, the age of the system, and cost to repair in comparison to cost to replace.

Chiller Maintenance

The best way to avoid potential repair issues and ensure a long service life is to have a maintenance plan for your commercial HVAC system. When properly maintained, chillers can often exceed their 20-25 year life expectancy as parts are cleaned and repaired routinely.

Age of Chiller

Even with a maintenance plan, chillers will reach a point where repairs become more frequent and expensive. If the system has less than 10% of its lifespan left, it is often a better decision to replace the chiller before total system failure to limit its impact on your business.

Cost of Chiller Repairs vs Replacement

Depending on how energy efficient your current model is, replacing it with a new high-efficiency model can end up saving you money in the long run. Just because a chiller repair is possible doesn’t mean it is the best decision for your business.

If you need a new HVAC installation or retrofit, Peterson Mechanical can help you select the right high-efficiency chiller for your cooling needs. Contact our mechanical engineers today to discuss whether a chiller replacement or chiller repair is your best option.
