Winter Weather Patterns

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Dec 5

The weather climate in America is changing. As a result, severe weather events like intense rain and snowstorms, flooding, dangerous heat, drought, storms, hurricanes and tornadoes are becoming more frequent and extreme. Burning fossil fuels—such as coal, oil and gas—releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Once released it traps heat, causing the Earth’s temperature to rise, which then changes wind, moisture and heat circulation patterns and leads to extreme weather events.

While many weather events don’t affect the population, for the many businesses that rely on continual power, a delay or outage due to climate issues can have a devastating effect. Think of the skilled nursing center that needs constant power to ensure machines deliver life-saving care. Or, the manufacturing plant that runs 24/7 to produce consumer goods. Or better yet, the museum that needs to ensure consistent temperature settings for its paintings. If any one of these facilities are affected by severe weather, it’s a blow to the bottom line, not to mention the time it takes to get back up and running.

It’s raining, it’s pouring, but a CHP system isn’t snoring

Since it’s inception in 1985, Aegis has developed products with the end-user’s needs in mind. Our combined heat and power (CHP) systems provide a resilient, 24/7 standby power option, and with 24-hour remote operational monitoring, you can rest assured that the system is doing its job. Solutions such as our PowerSync product line run continuously, so there is never any question whether standby electricity will be available in the event of a power outage. For facilities that can’t afford downtime and service disruptions, a CHP system is a must. As a bonus, our portfolio of advanced cogeneration systems reflect the energy, resiliency and environmentally friendly solutions that make us leaders in the CHP market.

While the weather is constantly changing, our guarantee to provide our clients with specialized solutions that provide continual heat and power are not. Contact us today to learn more about how a CHP system can help your bottom line.
