- Our Story
Regular glycol testing in HVAC systems is key to avoid unforeseen maintenance costs or unscheduled shutdowns. Somewhere down the road, changes may occur in the system which could affect the heat transfer solution. For example, periodic leaks in the system components or piping may require adding more fluid. The proper course of action would be to add as much glycol fluid as needed to bring the system solution back to the required level of concentration. However, glycol addition often does not happen, especially if the system has an automatic water makeup valve. Proactively testing, observing and maintaining your heat transfer solution on a regular basis will extend the life of your Dow® chemical heat transfer fluids for more than 20 years!
