Spring Efficiency on the Farm

Check the A.C.

From the house to the shop or office, be sure all A.C. units on your operation are in tip-top shape to save big this summer. Replace the filters, adjust programmed temperature settings and have your unit serviced and cleaned by a professional. Inspect the outside of the unit for overgrowth of plants and/or vines and clear the area.

Check the Fans

In the winter months, ceiling fans should spin clockwise. But, in the summer, your fans should be set to move counterclockwise for a downward airflow. This helps things stay cooler. It’s a quick and easy switch that’s often overlooked!

Check the Machines

From grain dryers to ventilation systems, if it’s got an electric motor, it will run better with this simple four-point spring check:

GREASE: Be sure all motors are greased.

REPLACE: Replace any parts that are rusted, corroded or worn.

SECURE: Tighten drive belts and other parts.

CLEAN: Be sure dirty fans are cleaned and all parts of the motor are free of debris.
