Reasons why you should have a maintenance contract

All types of air conditioning, heating, ventilation and electrical systems require regular maintenance to ensure they are  safe, maximise efficient operation, enhance energy savings, and help to prolong the life of your equipment.

F-Gas legal regulations also insist that any system containing refrigerant gas is maintained & leak tested by a competent & registered engineer at least once per annum (dependant on the size of the equipment).

An ACMS Planned Preventative Maintenance contract gives you the reassurance of knowing that your equipment is maintained to a high standard, and in full legal compliance on a regular basis.

ACMS maintenance contract holders also enjoy the security of knowing that they can benefit from our discounted service call out cover.

Service works will be carried out using our highly skilled service technicians who will aim to get any break down fixed as quickly and conveniently as possible.

 Please Note:

Please Note: We cannot guarantee a 24 hour response time to a logged service call, therfore we aim to provide a minimum 24 hour response. Please be assured we always try to respond as quickly as possible, especially where server rooms are concerned, however this would depend on our workload at the time of the service call being logged.

An ACMS maintenance contract also gives you the benefit of extended warranty policies:

AC manufacturers typically offer a standard 3 years warranty on all their equipment.

However as approved partners to the below manufacturers, we are able to offer extended warranties as follows…

  • Daikin – 7 years
  • Mitsubishi Electric – 7 years
  • Toshiba – 7 years
  • Fujitsu – 7 years

The warranty policy is based on the commissioning date of the equipment. If any repairs are required within the first year of commissioning, the parts and labour will be covered. Any time after, parts will be covered however labour will be chargeable.

It is a mandatory requirement that for any warranty to be valid the equipment must be regularly maintained during the warranty period in accordance with the manufacturers recommended procedures, and by an approved installer.

If equipment has not been regularly maintained the warranty will be invalid.

An ACMS maintenance contract allows you to be confident that you are complaint with the latest F-Gas legal regulations.

ACMS Ltd are F-Gas registered as well as Refcom Elite accredited, and all our engineers are F-Gas qualified and receive the latest training updates.

What are your responsibilities?

(1). Use Trained Technicians: Your first and overriding responsibility is to ensure that the company you employ to work on (install, leak test, maintain & dispose of) your refrigeration & air conditioning equipment is F-Gas registered.
Since the original Ozone Depleting Substances Regulations (1994), there has been increasing levels of competence standards demanded of refrigeration technicians and the companies who employ them, e.g. only qualified personnel are allowed to work on machinery and equipment containing F-Gases.

(2). Leak Testing: Operators of equipment containing fluorinated greenhouse gases need to ensure the equipment is checked for leaks under the following requirements:
CO2Tonnes – Maximum interval between checks

  • 5 Tonnes – 1 year (or 2 years with leak detection installed)
  • 50 Tonnes – 6 months (or 1 year with leak detection installed)
  • 500 Tonnes – 3 months (or 6 months with leak detection installed)

(3). Record Keeping: Operators of all stationary systems containing the equivalent of 5 CO2 tonnes or more of F-Gases must maintain records in the form of an onsite F-Gas log including:

  • Quantity and type of F-gases installed, added or recovered
  • Identifications of the company or technician carrying on servicing
  • Dates and results of leakage checks

(4). Labelling: The label on the system must contain at least the type and quantity of the F-Gas in the container or equipment.
Further and more in-depth guidance on F-Gas regulations can be found through DEFRA and the Environment Agency on the Government website.

Not complying with F-Gas regulations:

The maximum fine of £200,000 could be applied to offences such as the intentional release of F-gases to atmosphere, breaches of the quota limits for placing HFCs on the market, and failure to comply with an enforcement notice.

Penalties ranging from £1,000 to the maximum £200,000 have been levied by the Environment Agency on 41 companies since the European F-gas regulation passed into GB law post Brexit.

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) has fined a health food supplements manufacturer £75,000 for breaches of the F-gas regulation.

UK Environment Agency has issued penalties totalling over £1,000,000 on a UK company for breaches of the F-gas regulations. The company was issued with seven civil penalties, totalling £1,011,500. The company received a further penalty of £10,000 for failing to report imports of HFCs

Effects of no maintenace

Effects of no maintenance

  • Leaking water
  • Loss of cooling
  • Loss of heating
  • Freezing
  • Restricted air flow
  • Increased energy bills

Are you aware of the new laws regarding R22 refrigerant?

As from 1st January 2015 R22 refrigerant has been banned throughout Europe, as a result it can no longer legally be used on any type of air conditioning equipment.

With this in mind, if you have R22 equipment on site and service call out is required due to a breakdown, any works involving the refrigerant cannot by law be carried out, therefore the equipment will be deemed unrepairable and will require replacing.

If you are unsure on the refrigerant your equipment contains or you are aware that you have R22 onsite and you would like a quotation to replace the equipment, ACMS can carry out a survey and provide a quotation to suit.
