The FAS Green Program and FAS Office for Physical Resources and Planning are pleased to announce the kickoff of a new Preventative Maintenance (PM) program that is open to all -20 and -80 freezers in the FAS. The goal of the program is to improve the longevity of the participating freezers, achieve energy savings, improve sample security, and reduce the risk of freezer failure.
Shon’s Scientific Refrigeration was chosen as the refrigeration contractor for this program due to their well-established reputation with labs in the FAS. The cost of the program will be covered by the energy savings resulting from the preventative maintenance measures. The program will cover one annual inspection per freezer. All labs with -20 or -80 freezers are encouraged to participate!
To sign up for the program, please contact Jamie Bemis, FAS Green Labs Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions and for a list of best practices on freezer management.
