Why You May Need to Refurbish or Replace Your Offshore HVAC Equipment

Offshore workers have demanding work schedules, stretching from weeks to even months. And it’s not a relaxing time on the job either; the offshore environment is harsh and unforgiving. Each shift, your crew operates hazardous equipment while facing extreme weather conditions.

On top of these long and exhausting shifts, they are hundreds of miles away from their families living in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. Because of the lengthy time spent offshore, the facility becomes their home away from home. That’s why it’s so important to have high-quality equipment. Better equipment makes it easier to maintain your crew’s safety, comfortability, and morale during their long shifts at sea.

A huge factor to ensure optimal living and working conditions is maintaining your HVAC equipment. Your HVAC system needs to be as durable and as safe as possible. Though this equipment usually lasts between 10 to 15 years, it can cost a pretty penny to fully replace.

An alternative option is refurbishing the internal components instead. This route can be more efficient and cost-effective compared to a full replacement. Refurbishing your HVAC system can increase its longevity and produce a healthier environment while optimizing your facility’s energy usage. If your current HVAC system is over a decade old it’s most likely time to refurbish or replace your equipment.
