10 Minutes to a Better Build: Determine if Modular Chillers Are the Right Design Choice for Your Building Upgrade

Brad Snodgrass, global account manager at Boland Trane, explained to Host Tyler Kern about modular chillers’ benefits and how Boland works with customers to ensure an upgrade is the right move for them.

Instead of the traditional physically separated chillers, modular chillers have one point of electrical connection with a factory control component—this means a more efficient system that physically takes up less space and allows significantly more flexibility.

“The benefit of the modular chiller is now when we’re putting the new chiller back in, we have these small building blocks, and we’re able to put them in one at a time. It doesn’t matter if you’re running into a small elevator, narrow hallway, or whatever the building feature presents as a challenge, the modular chiller is able to help you overcome that and get the new chiller into the space,” said Snodgrass.

Boland wants to ensure future customers are treated like partners by taking on a consultative approach when determining if modular chillers are an appropriate update. These steps include:

  1. Identify the customer’s needs that may reveal the opportunity for a modular chiller upgrade
  2. Discuss examples to determine the type of problems to solve, such as phasing, future expansion needs, and seasonal turndown
  3. Conduct factory testing to verify and prove packaged solution’s capabilities and inspire ideas
  4. Design and implement the right solutions with experienced engineers and award-winning software

Making a capital purchase such as modular chillers is a large investment for any company. Partner with a reputable HVAC equipment and service provider with the teams and technology to deliver the right results efficiently and responsibly.
