Air handling units: how to cut costs by up to 50% through refurbishment and repair Posted on 13/07/202322/08/2023 by Rachel Poultney We’re all feeling it: the cost-of-living crisis has gone beyond our personal wallets and is now impacting businesses of all sizes across the UK. If you’re a business owner or manager, you’ll be looking to save money wherever possible – without impacting on your overall operations. But maintenance and running costs still mount up, especially with large investments like air handling units. Money saving maintenance for air handling units AVT’s refurbishment and repair services have been specifically designed to save you money and boost your environmental credentials. Instead of replacing faulty air handling units with brand new machines, the expert engineers in our Site Engineering Services (SES) department can diagnose, repair, and refurbish units that are starting to show signs of deterioration. At the end of the process, you’re left with a perfectly working unit – often at only half the expense of a brand-new system. And you’ve saved the environmental impact of scrapping an AHU that still had plenty of life in it. Here’s how it works in five simple steps: First, we come to inspect the unit and complete a comprehensive site survey. Next comes the planning. Our engineers will itemise all the necessary parts and draw up a schedule of works, giving everyone a clear understanding of what’s needed and what timetable we’re working to. Our assembly options are designed to make everything as efficient as possible. Parts will either be flat-packed or sub-assembled. With everything in place, our team can recommission your air handling unit and issue an updated technical specification. Finally, we’ll safely recycle or dispose of any old parts that were removed from your unit. AHU refurbishments and repairs Our team was recently called out to an air handling unit that had been operational for 25 years. It’s fair to say it had seen better days. But no challenge is too big for our SES team. They quickly identified the upgrades, modifications and new parts that were needed. The full programme of works included: Updating the appearance by installing smart new external panels Replacing old belt-drive AC fans with new energy-efficient EC motors Fitting a new gas burner and DX coils Installing replacement filters and a new control package We could easily do the same for you!
