Commercial Air Conditioning Repair
A properly functioning air conditioning system can play a part in comfort, productivity, and energy efficiency. As well as helping staff to focus and keeping customers happy, an operating air conditioning system optimizes energy consumption, leading to cost savings and reduced environmental impact, aligning businesses with sustainability goals.
So, when your heating or air conditioning system breaks down, you’ll want to get it back up and running as quickly as you possibly can to keep your customers and employees comfortable and to keep temperatures safe. Our commercial air conditioning repair services cover the whole of Yorkshire and can ensure that disruptions are kept to a minimum.
Common Commercial Air Conditioner Issues
A few common issues may crop up with your air conditioning unit. These are just some of the examples, but there are many potential problems, especially with older units that may be coming towards the end of their life.
When people look for commercial A/C repair they are often experiencing one of the following problems:
- Clogged drain lines
- Broken or faulty capacitor in condensing unit
- A leak in the refrigerant
- Failing fan motors
Signs there is something wrong with your commercial A/C unit include:
- The commercial A/C isn’t blowing cold air
- There is water pooling around the unit
- The unit is making strange noises such as knocking or whirring sounds
- The commercial A/C doesn’t turn on at all
- And many more…
Issues can be as diverse as inadequate cooling, diminished air quality, refrigerant leaks, odd noises, and thermostat malfunctions. These issues can severely disrupt operations and cause inadequate cooling and poor air quality.
Refrigerant leaks not only decrease cooling efficiency but also pose environmental and health risks. Unusual noises could indicate underlying mechanical issues, and malfunctioning thermostats result in inconsistent temperature control, potentially wasting energy.
Each of these problems can have different causes, which is why it’s so important to call in a professional commercial heating and air conditioning repair service.
Robinsons Facilities Services can diagnose and quickly repair your problems and our accredited engineers work in the north of England including all areas in Yorkshire.
We understand the importance of speedy commercial A/C repairs. Without a working air conditioner, you not only make your employees and customers uncomfortable, but you also put them at risk in extreme weather conditions. In the summer, for example, if your commercial A/C unit breaks down, the heat could become unbearable and even pose a health risk, particularly if you are using equipment that generates heat.
Preventing Repairs with Air Conditioner Servicing
As well as commercial A/C unit repair, Robinsons Facilities Services provides planned maintenance. This means that we can come to your Yorkshire premises at regular intervals and carry out checks on your commercial A/C unit to prevent any issues from arising.
Air conditioner servicing and planned maintenance can also help you to ensure that your unit is functioning to its maximum potential and that it is performing economically and not wasting energy unnecessarily.
We recommend that commercial A/C units are serviced every six months but this may need to be more frequent depending on how much the unit is used. Our team will be able to advise you on the best service schedule for your commercial A/C unit and provide you with peace of mind.
A Broken or Poorly Maintained Air Conditioner Could Be Hazardous
As well as being unpleasant, a commercial A/C unit that is not working properly can also be dangerous. If you have a gas-powered commercial A/C unit, for example, a build-up of carbon monoxide could pose a serious risk to health.
Fungus and bacteria can also build up in commercial A/C units and, if the air quality is poor, this could cause respiratory problems for people with asthma or allergies.
Remember that it is your responsibility as the owner or occupier of commercial premises to make sure that the air conditioning unit is safe and fit for purpose. If you are in any doubt, it is always best to call in a professional commercial A/C repair service.

Commercial Air Conditioning Repair FAQs
Common issues with air conditioning units include replacing filters or thermostats, fixing or replacing the compressor, and cleaning the coils. There are many potential problems and a professional can diagnose your specific issue.
A bit like a vehicle, an air conditioning unit has a lifespan and eventually it might not be worth continuing to pay for repairs. Instead, you might consider a replacement as repairs become frequent and costly.
Some of the telltale signs of issues with an air conditioning unit include bad smells, unusual noises, and the unit not functioning as it should. You may feel warm air coming from where the cold air should be.
Some commercial air conditioners may come with a warranty, and it is worth checking the paperwork you received if you have it. A warranty may enable you to claim for repairs or get a manufacturer repair or replacement.
Most modern air conditioners do not cause an immediate hazard if they are broken, but this depends on the design and cooling method. It is never a good idea to keep your broken air conditioner running until you have had it repaired.
