HVAC/Boilers Failure Analysis

HVAC and boiler failures are expensive and can be extremely dangerous, often resulting in serious property damage or worse. A failure in these critical systems can also completely halt operations, leading to thousands of dollars in business interruption costs.

Envista's engineers are skilled at assessing the root cause of HVAC and boiler failures in commercial, industrial, or institutional equipment and in building systems. We work with all involved parties to return systems to operate and minimize equipment downtime. Our multidisciplinary team can analyze all documents, components, and systems related to a failure, identify the responsible parties, and provide estimates to mitigate your loss quickly and efficiently.

Our HVAC/boiler experts examine: 

  • Manufacturing specifications and system application
  • Equipment service and maintenance records
  • Shipping and installation records
  • Material analysis
  • Potential design errors or construction defects
  • Subrogation potential
  • Failures involving electrical, mechanical, gas, or oil
  • Failures that resulted in explosion or fire
  • Boiler low-water conditions, poor water treatment, or improper warmup
  • Frozen pipes
  • Steam systems
