RELAC has never had the need to extend the season past October 9th the normal shutdown date until this year. We have decided to extend the season this year. Originally the weather forecast showed a cooling trend after the 11st. But now the heat wave could last into next weekend.
We will continue to operate through October 11th. RELAC will continue monitoring the weather and make another decision before the 11.
Today is the official first day of service after 2 consecutive 80 degree days. RELAC has been operational since April 27 except when the temperature was below 60 degrees. We will continue to operate until October 9th unless the temperature is below 55 degrees when we may shutdown until the day-time temperature reaches 60 degrees.
Any issues please call the RELAC number at 703-349-3301
Update April 27, 2017
Reston RELAC is now operational!! We began operations at noon on April 27.
Our push to get ready early for the 2017 season has been successful. Once we
get past this hot weather we will need to shutdown for a few hours during the day
to complete the startup process.
We beat our estimate of this Friday at noon. Please let us know of any services
issues by call us at 703-349-3301 and selecting service.
We will be shutting down today at 1:00 PM. Thanks for a good season
Update: April 24, 2017
Welcome to Reston RELAC
We are over two weeks into the startup process for the 2017 season. As you know the official startup date is May 22 or the 2nd consecutive 80 degree day in MAY. The weather forecast for Reston this week is HOT. In order to keep our customers comfortable in the oppressive heat, RELAC employees are working hard to get the air conditioning system up and running by Friday 28 April
Update May 3, 2017:
RELAC is now offline to complete season startup. We will be down for 36 hours ending at noon on May 4th. Water will still be circulating but only ground temperature cool. We are doing this now because we are having cooler temps.
Update May 6, 2017:
Because of the cooler weather RELAC has been temporarily turned off. The weather forecast shows this cool trend for the next few days. Water will still be circulating but only ground temperature cool.
The RELAC system has been temporarily turned off. The weather forecast shows temperatures below 60 degrees for the next few days. Sunday at noon is the most likely time for resuming operations. If the temperature goes below 60 degrees we will again shutdown until noon the following day. During shutdown times water will continue circulating but only at ground temperature.
The RELAC system is operational as of noon. If the temperature goes below 60 degrees we will again shutdown until noon the following day.
