Andrews Sykes Air Conditioning Services – Good Practice Notes: Legionnaires’ Disease

One year on from  outbreaks in Edinburgh and Stoke-On-Trent, Legionnaires’ disease, whilst increasingly less common, remains a potential issue for building owners, facilities managers and occupiers – especially in commercial and public buildings

Legionellosis is an infection caused by a bacterium named Legionella Pneumophila. Legionella are natural inhabitants of water and can be detected in rivers, lakes and streams.


Patients with Legionnaires disease usually have fever, chills and a cough. Some patients have muscle aches, headache, tiredness and loss of appetite. Chest x-rays will often look like pneumonia, even to the trained eye, therefore it is difficult to distinguish Legionnaires disease from other types of pneumonia by symptoms alone. read more

Q & A: How often should air conditioning be maintained?

The frequency of maintenance depends on the usage pattern of the air conditioning and the environment in which it operates. Generally equipment which runs for long periods of the day, is used for both winter heating and summer cooling or operates in a dirty or dusty environment should be visited at least twice per year and often 4 or more times per year. Planned Maintenance Contracts are specifically tailored to suit your particular environment and installation with the frequency of visits set to ensure the optimum reliability and efficiency of the air conditioning. read more

The Peak of Success

During the first days of July 2012, Andrews Air Conditioning Business Development Manager, Sam Law, completed what must be one of the toughest physical tests in the UK – the Four Peaks Challenge.
