Air Conditioning Maintenance
B-DACS provides air conditioning maintenance in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Central Scotland. Regular service and maintenance is essential to keep all air conditioning systems operating at their optimum level, regardless of their size.
Our team of dedicated service engineers carry out planned and reactive maintenance, whether we’ve installed your system or not. We pride ourselves on our customer service and value the trust our clients have in us to look after their systems.
Air Conditioning Maintenance Contracts
Taking out a planned preventative maintenance contract is the best way to look after your air conditioning.
Guaranteed to extend your system’s lifetime, it prevents small problems developing into serious faults. Regular visits allow our experienced engineers to fix minor issues before you even notice they’re there.
If your system is regularly maintained, you’re unlikely to experience any downtime and should never have to pay out for repairs.
Having a maintenance contract with B-DACS will also give you an extended warranty. The standard period for air conditioning units is 3 years but we can offer up to 7 year warranties with selected manufacturers, including Mitsubishi Electric, Daikin and Toshiba.
While you have a maintenance agreement with us, we’ll validate any warranty claims you make, meaning you can have faulty components replaced at no extra cost or inconvenience.
Benefits of Air Conditioning Maintenance
Regular maintenance is vital for all air conditioning systems. It optimises performance, prevents breakdowns and boosts energy efficiency. Systems that go without maintenance typically lose 5% efficiency every year. In terms of running costs, that quickly adds up. Regular maintenance also typically doubles your system’s usable lifetime, compared with systems that aren’t maintained at all.
Failing to service your air conditioning units can also cause dirty filters and blockages in your system. These can cause the units to short cycle and consume much more energy, as well as leading to freezing and water leaks. Air conditioning systems that don’t get cleaned regularly allow mould and other microorganisms to grow, causing general irritation, allergies and asthma.
Finally, air conditioning systems over a certain size have to be maintained by law. Businesses need to demonstrate that refrigerant gases aren’t leaking into the atmosphere and only an F-Gas qualified engineer can do that for you. For many businesses, air conditioning maintenance is essential to their legal compliance.
What Happens on a Maintenance Visit?
Our air conditioning maintenance visits are built around your needs. Typically, we visit every six months, but it depends on your system type and capacity, and we offer tailored packages as standard to meet your individual needs.
If you have a contract with us, we always contact you in advance to arrange maintenance work and never turn up unannounced. If the time we suggest doesn’t suit you, we’re always happy to reschedule and understand if you change your mind at any time.
Maintenance visits vary depending on your system, environment and the work that needs doing. However, we always carry out the following essential work on a routine visit:
- Ask how you feel the system is performing and address any concerns
- Clean filters, airways and evaporator coils
- Inspect electrical wiring
- Test and clean condensate pumps
- Check refrigeration levels and pressure, identifying any leaks
- Check compressor amperage and current
- Inspect insulation and pipework
- Clean and sanitise all units
- Test system in heating and cooling modes
- Complete service report
At the end of a maintenance visit, we talk you through what we’ve done and issue you with a copy of the service report. This gives you written confirmation of our findings, giving you a complete record of how your system is functioning.
To make things easy for customers, we now use the Clik app for all our maintenance customers. Clik is a paperless system, making it easy for engineers and customers to access documentation, track maintenance visits and check the status of any ongoing maintenance jobs. It means that you have everything to hand in one place at any time, no matter where you are.
