Since traveling far and wide to do commercial HVAC jobs, it is always a pleasure working with people in our hometown of Willmar, MN. A recent project with the Willmar School District and Rich Olson, Director of Health and Safety / Buildings and Grounds was no exception. Rich spends some of the school day working on heating and cooling issues throughout the district along with summer maintenance and facility projects with architects, but counts on Chappell Central for heating, cooling, and ventilation issues beyond his scope. Rich explains, “When situations arise with equipment that isn’t working such as heat or cooling, we first try to self-diagnose with our maintenance staff, then call Chappell for immediate assistance.”
Past Projects, Future Projects, and Annual Service Contracts
Chappell Central has worked on many projects with Willmar Public Schools over the years, including recently installing glycol in the hot water system at Kennedy to prevent freeze-ups in the unit ventilators. This summer, Chappell Central will also be installing eleven new univent heaters in the school. Willmar Public Schools has a yearly maintenance contract with Chappell Central to adjust and tune-up univents, air conditioners, and roof tops units.
Timely Service and Exceptional Techs
The key factors for Willmar Public Schools choosing Chappell Central as a contractor come down to dedicated service and expertise. Rich explains, “Not all contractors are able to respond immediately to the variety of calls and concerns we deal with. Just the regular maintenance of all the equipment at eight sites takes qualified technicians dispatched in a timely fashion.” Knowing that Chappell Central has a commitment to the Willmar Schools makes Rich’s job easier, “It’s a great relief to have such a quality organization working for the District , knowing they are basically on duty 24 hours a day.” He goes on to commend the people that make it happen, “Willmar Schools is thankful for Chappell Central as a local contractor.”
Chappell Central appreciates being a part of providing safe and reliable heating and cooling for the Willmar School District for so long. We look forward to future HVAC projects with them.
