The most mentioned pro of PVC curtains is the low cost and maintenance of the product. The biggest con on the other hand is the cheap look or feel of having plastic rather than a fabric covering.
The thing is PVC does have the strongest advantage. There are a wide variety of types and they are used by many professional businesses as well as in domestic settings. They can even be used outside. PVC curtains work great for the use in coolrooms, but they are most seen in restaurants over freezer and cooler doors to maintain temperature or on backdoors to eliminate pests.
One con is the tearing possibility, but if you invest in the thicker PVC curtains that won’t be likely. These are durable materials if you choose according to your actual needs and amount of traffic that will be going through them.
Another con is PVC curtains are something that in many businesses is nonnegotiable. They are required by health departments, and they have to be fully operational. In other words, if one breaks then it has to be immediately repaired, and until it is your coolroom is not meeting operational health standards. This leaves little room for flexibility.
On the upside, businesses with PVC curtains are paying less for pest control, and they see less food wasted due to pest prevention and temperature control. They are also making more overhead profits because of their good standing with the health departments. These re guaranteed wins for any business!
PVC curtains help to prevent bacteria and reduce the possibility for mood. The list goes on and on. Again, they have the strongest advantage, and no other material can truly compete against PVC curtains when it comes to meeting needs and demands.
Finally, PVC curtains are budget friendly, heavy duty and ready to install. With C&M repairs are easy and affordable. In the long run and with all things considered the pros of PVC curtains for coolrooms are much more prominent than the cons.
These are options that are more than adequate in several industries. You can go with a clear PVC curtain or customize the look of your PVC curtains for your coolroom through C & M’s professional coolroom services and affordable pricing. Your needs and budget are considered to get you the best PVC curtains to suit your needs and also to meet the health standards in your area.
Since the field is not suffering like many others in today’s economy, there are a lot of mediocre energy consultants in the business. A quality energy auditor can be difficult to find, that is, unless you know what to look for. Not everyone who claims to be an energy auditor nowadays truly knows how to be an effective consultant.
Now, you have to decide what you want from an energy auditor. The thing is, different companies have different definitions of what an energy auditor actually is, and they have developed different expectorations based on those beliefs.
Remember, you will get what you pay for. If you run across a cheap energy auditor it is probably not the best idea to utilize them unless they have excellent and verifiable references. You do not want a limited audit designed to sell you a product either.
Make sure that you know that you are getting a comprehensive energy audit by a qualified professional. Do not be afraid to ask questions, verify answers and do your homework.
Remember, while nonprofit companies may with good intentions offer free audits, these are often not done by truly qualified professionals. The nonprofits get grants for energy preservation but the funds are simply not enough to hire the best.
Experience counts when it comes to finding a good energy auditor! It comes down to more than the right fixtures. Your auditor should have a comprehensive understanding of things like domestic hot water, boilers, chillers, air handlers, control systems, compressed air, package units and all of and their components just to name some.
Learning all you need to about this industry can take years, so experience is a key thing to look for.
In summary, find an energy auditor that you can trust with a minimum of 10 years’ experience if possible. Make sure that the one you choose is a CEM (Certified Energy Manager) or a Professional Engineer (PE). Know exactly what you can expect for the sum you have agreed to pay, so that you know all of your needs are being met. Do not assume anything.
It is always best to evaluate at least 3 companies before making a final decision on which one to go with. And finally, get a resume and ask for references for the individual performing the audit and not on the company in general.
You should come out just fine if you follow the guidelines above; good luck!
