Cold facts about coil maintenance

Winter is a particularly challenging time of the year for your building’s HVAC system; condensation tends to form on the coil and this can freeze in the colder months, reducing air flow and heat transfer and severely weakening the air conditioning system or even leading to catastrophic failure. A frozen coil can cause devastating problems in a building []

Why refurb and repair makes solid business sense

      As HVAC equipment ages, it costs more and more to run and is increasingly likely to break down, which will have a huge impact on the occupants of the building it serves. On top of this, as time passes technological improvements lead to greater efficiency, lower costs and better overall performance – []

Coil maintenance – clean, repair and protect

As winter starts to bite, the coils contained in condensers and evaporators are placed under additional strain and, should they fail, your business could potentially be brought to a halt. However, it needn’t be if you apply effective maintenance and the right equipment to prevent clogging, corrosion or leakage. There are essentially two types of []

Maintenance made manageable

  Fans, motors and ductwork are critical components in any HVAC system and you neglect them at your peril. Maintaining this equipment effectively not only improves productivity, but it also reduces the chance of disruptive and expensive breakdowns. Maintenance is intrinsically linked to energy efficiency (and therefore lowers operating costs) in HVAC systems, and will []
