At Maximum Climate Control we supply, install and maintain refrigeration systems, including large industrial refrigeration systems and chillers. Working with our partner Nesbits Woosley to supply premium refrigeration units to businesses in the UK.
Refrigeration System Maintenance & Repairs
Refrigeration systems should be serviced regularly to comply with FGas compliance. FGas states that refrigeration system maintenance should be carried out:
1.3kg of 404A requires FGas checking every 12 months
3.5kg on 134A requires FGas checking every 12 months
Regular refrigeration system maintenance prevents having to “break into” the actual refrigerant system on your fridge and reduces the likelihood of a breakdown. Regular pre-planned servicing is the best option for businesses to keep their systems up and running as opposed to reactive servicing when your refrigeration system breaks or has a fault.
At Maximum Climate Control, we offer maintenance contracts for refrigeration systems to ensure your system is running efficiently. To find out more about our refrigeration system maintenance and PPM contracts, speak to one of our experts.Speak to an expert

Refrigerant Leak Detection
Refrigerant gas is harmful to the environment and in the event of a refrigerant leak being detected or reported, Maximum will undertake to reclaim the remaining refrigerant from the system in accordance with F Gas Legislation Part 1 & 2. Costs could be incurred for the recovery cylinder and refrigerant disposal. Maximum will liaise with you throughout this process and will supply you with a written quotation for the proposed works if required.
In the unlikely event of a refrigerant leak, when our engineer has reported and informed the client, a quotation will be generated for these works and this will be sent to you for the next day.
The client or technically the operator then has a legal responsibility to respond and inform us if you wish to carry out these works within a 30-day period, failure to respond and have the leak repaired within this time scale, will result in the breaking of F Gas Legislation. It is the operator not the owner that will be liable to a fine or prosecution.
Please note: The legal definition of the operator, is the person in charge of this piece of equipment, i.e. maintenance manager, chief engineer, etc.
