follow those pipes

Often unseen by the occupants of an office, a facility’s pipes twist and turn above a dropped ceiling like a maze, winding into a parking garage or warehouse, helping the building’s various systems do their jobs.

Although you may not see them often or even give them much thought, the pipes throughout your facility that carry steam, gas, oil, chilled and hot water are an instrumental part of your business. By keeping your building comfortable and functional, pipes help keep you in business.

It’s easy to take your piping system for granted, especially if you haven’t had problems in the past. You might not anticipate trouble because you schedule routine maintenance and regularly check for leaks. Unfortunately, leaks can happen anyway. In some cases, locating a problem within a maze of pipes can be a daunting task. Sometimes isolating leaks to make repairs can be difficult. Pipes are complicated, so when a pipe leaks, it’s time to call a professional.

ACSI Mechanical’s experts specialize in installing, maintaining and fabricating piping systems and are well equipped to solve even the trickiest of piping problems. Our tradesmen, all highly trained pipefitters and welders, might “freeze” sections of pipe, “hot tap” pipes, or work through the night or on the weekend to get you back in business. We are committed to constructing and maintaining durable piping systems with our customers’ budgets in mind.

Whether you’re considering a new piping project and would like a free estimate or are faced with an emergency piping situation, give us a call. For those with larger facilities, we can also provide an “in-house” pipefitter to your maintenance staff to provide professional expertise on an as-needed basis. Whatever your needs, we’re here to help you navigate the maze.
