40% of Air-Conditioning equipment breakdowns and the product guarantee becomes invalidated due to lack of maintenance.
Maybe you didn’t know this but it’s extremely important!
In accordance to the Energy Performance of Buildings (England and Wales) Regulations 2012, amended in 2020 (the EPB regulations);
‘All air conditioning systems with an effective rated output of more than 12kW must be regularly inspected by an energy assessor. The inspections must be no more than 5 years apart.’
CPL Service Response can easily and cheaply check this for you so you know where you stand.
We can help with a simple survey, report and going on from there will be able to provide you with a budget replacement cost to ensure full compliance with legislation, thus avoiding expensive fines, potential loss of production and to plan ahead.
This will be the condense collector tray collecting bacteria microbes and spores and probably the need to clean the filters. The ‘radiator-type’ cooling coil in an air conditioning unit causes the warm-air that passes over it to have the moisture removed. If you’ve been in an air conditioned building in a hot climate, you have probably experienced your sun- glasses or camera viewfinder fogging-up when you walk out of the building into the warm day.
This is the same effect, only it is continuous with an air conditioning unit. So the moisture drops into a condense collector tray which then runs to a drain. However it is inevitable that some moisture collects in the collector tray and over a period of time and this then becomes a breeding ground for nasty smelly bacteria spores and germs. Besides the odour, these breeding germs are re-dispersed when the air conditioning is running, on the ‘breeze’!
All that needs to be done to stop this is regular servicing to include filter clean/ replacement and anti-bacterial treatment to the coil and condense tray by a trained CPL Service Response engineer just twice per annum. Aroma blocks can also be provided to provide a positive aroma, simply by inserting them in the airflow path. This solution is both simple and inexpensive when compared to ‘sick-building syndrome’ or worse.
The system is probably short of gas and is just not working! Why not call in CPL Service Response to diagnose the fault and top the system-up if required? The cost is small compared to a replacement system and you can be up and running at full efficiency once again after a couple of hours.
