UK Air Handling Systems and Unit Servicing
Whether you need to carry out maintenance and repairs on your air handling systems or need to establish planned preventative maintenance, our engineers are available to help.
The air quality of your premises is hugely important as clean air, at the right temperature, is vital for your staff’s health, wellbeing and productivity. We provide quarterly inspections and filter changes for Air Handling Systems and Air Handling Units (AHUs) as part of our Facilities Management Service.
Modern buildings typically have multiple AHUs placed throughout the building. They are connected to and are a vital component of the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system. The job of an AHU is to condition the air using heaters, coolers, fans, coils, filters, humidifiers, mixing chambers and heat recovery devices and other components.
Three different types of Air Handling Units
The Rooftop unit, which is placed outside the building; the Make-Up Air unit, which is a large air handler placed within a building; and Wall units, which are smaller and serve a localised area.
Most AHUs are designed for areas with a large flow of people that accumulate at the same time and where other ventilation is limited; such as offices, schools, gyms, shopping malls, restaurants, cinemas or theatres. There are different units suitable for food production areas, hotel dining areas or high contamination environments such as waste processing and these will help make your commercial environment as safe as possible. There are also options for areas that need to have high hygiene levels such as operating theatres, laboratories etc.
How much energy do AHUs use?
All AHUs have a low power consumption – between 10w and 33w depending on the size of the unit. In terms of electricity costs, this equates to £12-£39 per unit per year.
AHU Maintenance and Repairs
Our highly skilled maintenance engineers are available to attend to emergency repairs with reactive maintenance support.
As well as taking advantage of our reactive call-out service, you can reduce the likelihood of breakdowns with planned preventative maintenance, enabling us to replace parts and make any repairs at a time that’s convenient for your business and without the emergency call-out charges.
If an AHU is set-up incorrectly, it will not work as efficiently and this will mean you will have increased running costs. We can help you set up your AHU correctly or we can correct the set-up of an inefficient unit to help you save money and ensure your staff are working in optimal conditions.
