As a facility manager, you know a lot of things can go awry during the winter months.
Not only that, inclement weather can make handling repairs difficult, because it’s hard to get crews to work in freezing temperatures.
It’s a good idea to winterize your building, to reduce the likelihood of damage occurring.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when winterizing your building:
- inspect your furnace and heating systems – it’s obvious optimally functioning heating is vital to your building’s health.
- calibrate thermostats by adjusting to a cooler temperature that’s still comfortable
- inspect doors and window for small cracks, so that your heat doesn’t literally escape out the door
- inspect the roof for damage, to ensure no issues through the harsh Winter
