Heavy Truck & Equipment Air Cooling
Canada is a country of weather extremes, and especially here in Calgary, it can get absolutely sweltering in the summer. While the warm weather is great when you’re relaxing, it’s not so much fun when you’re stuck in traffic in the city, or staring down hundreds of miles of hot prairie highways. Overheating in a vehicle is not only a cause of minor irritation and drowsiness, it can even lead to dehydration and danger – which isn’t a good combination with big tractor-trailers or heavy utility vehicles. And that’s why a functional heavy truck air conditioning unit is a must for drivers on these blazing summer days.
How You Can Keep Your Cab Temperature Livable Without Idling Your Truck.
In recent years, a new trend of anti-idling laws has cropped up in many places around the world, and Alberta could be next in line. These laws are meant to reduce waste and emissions from vehicles that are idling for long periods of time – affecting everything from long-haul trucks at rest stops to the huge cargo ships waiting in a port. The laws are for a good reason, but they often fail to account for the reason why the vehicles are idling in the first place: the weather outside can be extreme, and it’s often quite literally unsafe to be in a vehicle without heating or cooling for several hours.
