Once, there was just one way to inspect a heating and cooling unit. A skilled technician had to come look at it.
Routine inspections could catch problems early, but a unit could still run inefficiently for months between inspections. Moreover, these inspections required technicians to spend time traveling to units that were NOT having problems.
A better way is emerging. Innovative companies like Harshaw Trane are moving toward a “connected services strategy.” Units are monitored remotely and flagged for interventions as needed. With a national shortage of technicians, this means saving skilled workers for their best use – maintenance and repair.
