During the design and construction process of the Police Department, an LG VRF system was chosen and installed to heat and cool the main floor of the police department. This type of system was an unusual choice for the climate we face in Wyoming as these systems are typically used in more mild climates. Over the last 5 years, the system has had many breakdowns and has resulted in costly repairs. Because of the rarity of this type of system in Wyoming, there are no local contractors certified to work on the unit. MHI Service out of Salt Lake City is the only known certified LG contractor who can work on the units and we have had to call them out to work on these units on an emergency basis. The service agreement would provide bi-annual visits to inspect and monitor the performance of these units with the intent of preventing costly breakdowns in the future.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve the agreement with MHI Service for bi-annual maintenance of the LG VRF system at the Police Department Building.
