Andrews Air Conditioning

National food supplier takes safety precautions over air quality

With the importance of air quality control more prevalent in society than it has ever been, it is hardly surprising that companies from all industries are taking steps to improve conditions inside their buildings. This was recently exemplified when a renowned food distributor contacted Andrews Air Conditioning with a view to making some adaptations to their existing set-up.

The air conditioning at their headquarters in London was supplied by dozens of cassette and split type systems, but these lacked a fresh air supply to some of the smaller offices. In this instance, our client was looking to enhance the air quality within these working areas. Following a comprehensive site survey which was carried out by one of our local experts, a proposal was made to help disinfect recirculating air by adding UVc light equipment to their units. read more

Andrews upgrades R22 refrigerant systems for well-known drinks company

One of the country’s best-loved soft drink manufacturers got in touch with us after enduring a number of issues with the cooling system at their northern base. The client’s twin and split air conditioning systems were operating on R22 refrigerant and these were failing fairly regularly due to the units being obsolete.

This continued unreliability prompted our customer to consider replacing the entire system with a modern and energy-efficient solution.

Prior to discussing which equipment might be best for the project, our client explained that they had two very specific stipulations which we were required to accommodate. These were guaranteeing the removal of the heat load from all condensers located inside the warehouse, and relocating two external VRF units to an external compound outside the main building. read more
