Good Morning!

I wanted to share with you information about new program we are launching to provide preventative maintenance (PM) to lab freezers in the FAS. Below is the program announcement. Please let me know if you have any questions!

FAS Green Program Launches Freezer Preventative Maintenance Program

The FAS Office for Physical Resources and Planning is 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 with performance of preventative maintenance procedures per freezer. All labs are encouraged to participate!

Here's how to get started:
1.       Interested labs should contact Stephanie Dacko, Shon's Service Coordinator, at sdacko at shonsscientific.com<mailto:sdacko at shonsscientific.com> to set up their first preventative maintenance inspection.
2.       Attached is a list of additional best practices that we highly encourage all labs to implement. The FAS Green Program can offer support by providing basic instruction on how to care for your freezer, and by providing free resources including freezer map templates and rubber mallets for clearing ice buildup.  If you would like to receive support from the FAS Green Program, please fill out the attached form and return it to Jamie Bemis, FAS Green Labs Coordinator, at jamie_bemis at harvard.edu<mailto:jamie_bemis at harvard.edu>.
