Air Conditioning, Ventilation and Refrigeration
Robinsons Facilities Services can offer AHU maintenance across Yorkshire. The air handling unit is crucially important to your HVAC unit and can cause a breakdown or hazard if there is an issue.
The air handling unit is a vital part of the HVAC system, as it is the central unit which moves air around the ductwork. Like many other critical features of an air conditioning system, obstructions can restrict this airflow and hence make it less energy efficient, so regular maintenance is very important.
A complete maintenance program for an air conditioning system will include a detailed examination and cleaning of the air handling unit, but the cleaning of associated parts, i.e. the filter, air dampeners, heat exchangers, the evaporator and condenser coils and the heating and cooling valves, will all affect how the air handling unit operates.
Whether you have an indirect or direct fired air handling unit, our engineers can help with maintenance and even repair as required.
Why is Planned and Preventive Maintenance Important?
There are many aspects to the maintenance of the air handling unit, such as cleaning the coil chambers, fan and bearing replacement, replacing drive belts and pulleys. These all combine to ensure the unit is operating effectively and not using more energy than it needs to, an alternative way to look at it is that blockages of dust and dirt mean you are not getting the air quality or quantity of clean air that you should be.
Planned preventive maintenance ensures that critical features are looked at and cleaned or replaced as necessary, before they lead to a breakdown or repair situation.
It is always best to address potential problems before they materialise, and planned preventive maintenance of your air conditioning addresses just that, as well as providing 24/7/365 breakdown cover.
In the case of an air conditioning system, you can be assured that you are operating your system efficiently and that it is providing a good quality of air for your workplace. A breakdown could even cause a potential health hazard.

AHU Maintenance FAQs
Properly maintained and looked after, an air handling unit can last well over 20 years, but without maintenance you can only expect a fraction of this life expectancy, and efficiency.

An air handling unit is usually in place in a larger commercial building and this means that they are often installed in the basement, or on the roof of the building, out of the way. The building may have multiple AHUs.
Yes, the AHU will generate some noise and this should be considered in the installation of the unit.
