Air Conditioning Maintenance Tips for Business Owners

Each day, your HVAC system works hard to keep employees cool, filter the air and regulate the temperature of the office when required – and therefore it’s no surprise commercial air conditioning systems use a lot of energy and can cost a lot to run.

Maintaining your air conditioning unit is extremely important. Unfortunately, an air con unit isn’t just something you can install and leave alone; regular maintenance will help ensure the unit continues to run efficiently and smoothly without the need for frequent repairs. read more >

How to Tell When Your Air Conditioner Needs Servicing

EU Legislation and Air Con Inspections

The Montreal Protocol first went into effect in the 1980s as part of a consolidated, international effort to reduce and eventually phase out the production of substances contributing to ozone depletion.
