Building and Maintenance

Like any type of mechanical equipment, air conditioning systems must be maintained regularly in order to avoid breakdowns, which can often happen when you’re relying on it the most. Without frequent maintenance, the efficiency of your ventilation system will drop and running costs are likely to increase. To improve product efficiency and keep costs to a minimum, it is recommended that all building services and plant systems have regularly scheduled professional visits, which should also help to extend plant life.

C & J Mechanical Services can provide a full building maintenance service which includes bespoke preventative maintenance contracts; servicing of commercial boilers, heating and ventilation systems; plumbing and sanitation; and design and installation of air-conditioning systems.

A typical preventative maintenance contract is based upon one visit every six months per year, where our trained engineers record key data, maintain the refrigerant log* and carry out a 30-point health check on each system. More frequent visits can be scheduled if required.

As manufacturer-approved installers of Daikin air conditioning systems, we can offer our customers an extended parts and labour warranty on all new Daikin equipment. We can now also present our customers with extended warranties on other leading manufacturer brands, subject to terms and conditions.

To maintain these offers of extended warranty on manufacturers’ parts, the equipment must be covered by a maintenance contract which needs to be purchased at the time of order. All extended warranties are for parts only, and exclude condensate pumps and installation materials which have a standard 12-month parts and labour warranty.

Our engineers are experts in their field and hold all legally required certificates, including Gas Safe Register, BPEC in Un vented Water Storage Systems and BPEC in Energy Efficiency part L.

*On 4 July 2007 the F-Gas regulation came into force, obliging operators of air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment containing 3kg or more of F-gases to maintain equipment records.

R22 Refrigerant Gas Phase-Out

In accordance with the Montreal Protocol the UK is currently phasing out all substances that are believed to damage the ozone layer. This includes the refrigerant gas R22.

The majority of air-conditioning systems installed prior to 2002 use R22 gas. After this, its use in new air-conditioning equipment was banned (with the exception of heat pump systems, for which the ban deadline was extended to 2004). At present, R22 is still produced and supplied for the servicing and maintenance of existing systems, but a total ban on its manufacture will become law at the end of 2009. Recycled stocks of R22 will diminish and stockpiling of R22 will be illegal.

This legislation is expected to affect many organisations whose air-conditioning systems were installed before 2002 (or those with heat pump systems installed before 2004), therefore plans to remove the use of R22 must be put into place soon.

If you think you may have an air-conditioning system that contains R22, please call us to arrange a free survey of your system and an assessment of your options to ensure compliance with the 2009 phase-out deadline.

Heating and Plumbing

All our engineers are Gas Safe registered to deal with installations and repairs on pipes, gas boilers and soon to be commercial boilers and all systems are installed to meet current legislation.
