Summer for Facility Managers: Preparing Your Space for the heat

As the temperature rises and the sun shines brighter, it’s time for facility managers to gear up for the summer months. From ensuring optimal energy efficiency to maintaining comfortable indoor environments, summer preparations are crucial for every FM. In this blog post, we’ll delve into specific strategies for preparing your space for the summer heat.

HVAC System Maintenance: First and foremost, a well-functioning HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system is essential for maintaining a comfortable indoor environment during the summer. Schedule a comprehensive maintenance checkup before the heat sets in. This includes cleaning or replacing air filters, inspecting ductwork for leaks, functional tests and tweaking settings for optimum efficiency. Properly functioning HVAC systems not only keep occupants comfortable but also contribute to energy efficiency and cost savings.

Energy Efficiency Audits: Summer often means increased energy consumption due to higher demand for cooling. Conducting an energy efficiency audit can help identify areas for improvement and potential cost savings, such as projects for energy-efficient lighting, smart thermostats, and programmable HVAC systems. Additionally, passive solutions like proper sealing (sealing gaps /repairing of  windows, doors, and adding insulation to prevent cool air from escaping and hot air from entering) can be applied after a proper audit.

Outdoor Space Maintenance: Don’t overlook the importance of outdoor spaces when preparing for summer. We ensure that landscaping is well-maintained, including regular mowing, trimming, and watering. Consider planting shade trees or installing awnings to provide relief from the sun and reduce cooling costs. Inspect outdoor lighting fixtures and replace any damaged bulbs or fixtures to enhance safety and security during summer evenings.

Emergency Preparedness: Summer brings its own set of challenges, including severe weather events such as heatwaves, storms, and power outages. We develop and review emergency preparedness plans to ensure the safety and well-being of occupants. This may involve stocking up on emergency supplies, establishing communication protocols, and conducting drills to practice evacuation procedures. We keep you informed about weather forecasts and be prepared to take appropriate action to mitigate risks.

Summer preparations are essential for facility managers to ensure the comfort, safety, and efficiency of their spaces during the warmer months. By focusing on HVAC system maintenance, energy efficiency audits, outdoor space maintenance, pest control, and emergency preparedness, facility managers can effectively manage the challenges posed by summer heat. We are proactive and well prepared so that you can enjoy a smooth transition into the summer season!
