Don't Get Stuck in the Circuit Board Obsolescence Trap

Circuit Board RepairsWhen the circuit board fails in your chillers and air handler systems you will face a costly dilemma. If your controls were installed within the past 10 to 15 years you will likely face the fact that your system is obsolete. This means that a replacement board in next to impossible to find. If you have the good fortune to find one it will probably cost a large, unwanted chunk of your maintenance budget.

This obsolescence trap has been the result of several factors: technology advancements and corporate mergers.

First, technology is always marching forward with greater computing power and newer system features. However, the latest and  greatest system means that your old reliable controls have become obsolete and not worth supporting. Manufacturers would rather sell you the new $60,000 system that you don't really need or have the budget purchase. All you need is a source to repair the problem.

The other factor is the merger or sale of manufacturers in the industrial HVAC market. Corporate acquisitions are not good for a brand's parts inventory. Parts support and stock levels are slashed to save money. Many of these companies no longer offer replacement boards in their catalogs or have raised the prices so high that they are cost prohibitive. Solving the problem is no longer a few phone calls away but a tedious search that often ends up empty.
