Maintenance (Planned Preventative Maintenance)

Your air conditioning & heat pump systems are a major investment and naturally you will want to protect and ensure their life as much as you would if you purchased a new car.

The majority of manufacturers are now offering 3-year warranties (subject to contract) much like car dealerships, ND-AC can offer extended for piece of mind.

However if you do not have a maintenance contract these warranties become null and void, which could result in expensive repairs even on a new system.

 So why have a Maintenance Contract?

When operating a system without regular maintenance the following can occur;

  • High Operating Costs
  • Reduced Cooling Capacity
  • Reduced Heating Capacity
  • Uncomfortable atmosphere (high humidity, resulting in irritable staff and customers)
  • Can cause Sick Building Syndrome’ (unpleasant smells, bacteria, viruses etc)
  • Unhygienic and unsightly to your clients and customers (especially in Restaurants and Food Retail)
  • Water leaks (resulting in damaged goods, flooring, pictures, customers clothing)
  • Expensive repairs

Here are some examples;

Blocked Air Filter from Fresh Air AHU

Blocked Air Filter from a Fresh Air Air Handling Unit

 

Dirt build up on fan blade, removed on maintenance

Fan Blade 50% blocked, restricting airflow and cooling capacity.

 

Blocked outdoor condenser coil, cleaned on maintenance
