Delays in construction can be frustrating, costly, and in most cases- determined by the weather! In addition to delays, the dog days of summer bring their own unique risks to workers and construction equipment. Proper construction site air control can keep you and your machinery cool, while increasing efficiency and lowering safety risks.
So, what can you do to limit overheating?
For workers in construction industries, heavy protective apparel and long days in the hot, humid sun are common on the job. If you don’t hydrate, you may feel like you are sleepwalking through the day. In fact, the negative effects of heat on workers is well documented. Heat stress can cause workers to make more mistakes per hour and jeopardize on-site safety.
The same holds true for your equipment! Oftentimes heat can cause equipment malfunctions or expensive breakdowns.
It’s important to maintain your machinery by:
- Keeping your construction equipment out of the sun when necessary.
- Limiting usage during peak hours of the day, typically 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, when the sun is the most intense.
- Switching your equipment to “sleep mode” during after-hours to save on energy costs.
Although these equipment tips will prolong the longevity of your machinery, it’s just as important to supply on-site airflow to decrease the likelihood of overheating.
Protect Your Equipment with Our Portable AC Units
Renting industrial ac equipment is a cost-effective way to keep your systems running on schedule without fear of emergency repairs.
When cooling large spaces like a construction site, a variety of units working together is generally recommended. One of the many benefits of portable AC is that you are able to dictate desired air flow by quickly moving units to various pockets of the job during certain hours of the day.
