prevent burst frost coils

With a fresh bout of cold weather set to bite, UK facilities managers responsible for buildings in the industrial, commercial, and leisure sectors will be relying on HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems for keeping building occupants warm, comfortable and productive.

Frost coils are one aspect of HVAC equipment that give FMs a headache in the winter. During the cold months, frost coils are notorious for bursting, which may be down to corrosion resulting from the age of the components or it could be because of inadequate antifreeze. Another common cause of frozen coils is dirty air filters. Your HVAC system should be serviced every year to ensure that clean air is able to flow through the system easily.

When coils freeze up, most people think that it’s caused by water or condensation that has frozen, causing the pipes to bulge and eventually burst. In reality, the coils will freeze in multiple areas simultaneously, and it’s the pressure that builds up between these areas which cause the leaks to occur. With employee health and well-being being of the utmost importance, an inoperative heating system when temperatures outside hover around freezing is not an option.
