Is there a suggested period for re-gassing my air conditioning?

The system will need to be checked for being F-gas compliant once a year or more, dependent on the CO2 emissions of the systems. A system should not be re-charged with any refrigerant unless a leak has occurred. If the system has been installed correctly to meet F-gas legislation, then the system is pressure & strength tested before refrigerant can be released within the system. Annual or bi-annual leak testing is mandatory on all systems, according to CO2 emissions calculator to make sure any leaks are found and rectified, with a 30 day period of detection. Get in touch about re-gassing air condition systems.

Should I take my installer’s advice and arrange regular check ups for my air conditioning systems?

Yes, failure to do so on a new installation will invalidate any warranty with the installer/manufacturer, and eventually cause the system to fail and/or expensive parts to be required due to excessive wear and higher running cost increasing your carbon footprint. On an older system, regular air conditioning checkups will mean the system will run more efficiently and any issue picked up to keep the system running trouble free for the rest of its life.

What actions are carried out to the air conditioning system during the service?

In an air conditioning service, the unit’s casings are cleaned, together with the filters and the indoor/outdoor coils are cleaned with a environmentally-safe coil cleaner, electrical connections are tightened as well as a visual inspection of PC boards and components. The system is then run in heating and cooling modes and readings are taken and recorded with electrical readings. The system will also be F-gas leak checked with a visual and prepriority leak-testing fluid or electronic sniffer for any refrigerant leaks. All this is then compiled into a air conditioning service report and the F-gas log book completed for the unit or units and signed by our own in-house F-gas certified engineers. Any recommendations or if any spares are required this will then be quoted separately.

What can I do to maintain my air conditioning unit?

Keep the filters washed out with warm soapy water in a sink, let them dry off and then fit them back in the unit. Also keep the outdoor unit heat exchanger clear of plants/leaves and free for air to be drawn through the heat exchanger. If the coil is dirty, wash down with a hose pipe on the coil only, but do not use a high-pressure hose or pressure washer as this could cause damage to the fins and the unit. It is best to have the air conditioning system serviced professionally to keep it running trouble free and efficiently.

My staff are complaining about being too hot or cold to work, what can I do?

We can visit your office and look at the best most efficient form of both heating and cooling your office staff to keep them comfortable and focused on their jobs and help you to reap the rewards of comfortable staff and performance.
