Summer is Here

Summer is a hard season on HVAC units. Contact our offices to see how we can help keep yours running smoothly.

This is the toughest season of the year on your HVAC units. Components can accumulate more wear-and-tear in high temperatures and humidity. If left unchecked, these things can cause major functionality issues.

As the Rail HVAC Unit Specialists in the US, we are currently servicing and overhauling our highest number of AC units to date for various transit agencies all over the country.

We continue to grow, hiring on more employees, and offering a broader range of HVAC service/overhaul work to keep up with ever-increasing demands in the mass transit industry. We encourage transit maintenance facilities to reach out to us to see how we can help you as the heat of the Summer begins.

A Productive Year

It has been a productive year for LCS thus far.

LCS has successfully overhauled six power pack motors; five of which are in service, two with over 1,000 hours under their belts.

They have overhauled and upgraded 28 HVAC units, both late-style and new-style models. LCS has also provided a number of customers around the US with various transit parts and products, sourced from around the globe. In addition to their busy work-load, they have physically repaired and maintained rail HVACs at customers’ various maintenance facilities.

 

LCS has moved into a larger facility and brought on more employees. 

They are looking forward to what’s in store for 2019.

Insulation Matters

September 2018: Insulation Matters

LCS insists on changing out the insulation on all of their HVAC Overhaul Units.

Here is why it is a crucial step in the Overhaul process.

The manufacturers of HVAC Units still utilize insulation panels made of fiberglass, with a coating to prevent water damage. This is far from ideal. After a few years of a unit being in operation, this coating becomes worn and cracked, therefor making it susceptible to taking on water. When water is taken into this fiberglass insulation, it mildews quite quickly and is therefor contaminated.

Locomotive Climate Solutions addresses these issues by replacing it with a much higher quality, higher-end insulation. LCS insulation is lightweight, it will not crack, and it will long outlast the AC units themselves. It is water-repelling and mildew-resistant, and exceeds all ASTM fire and smoke protection requirements.

Locomotive Climate Solutions believes that insulation is a crucial step in the Overhaul process, as the quality of air you breathe is no small matter.
