Maintenance and Servicing for Air Conditioning
Preventative Planned Maintenance Checks
Cool and Reliable Refrigeration
When refrigeration equipment breaks down or doesn’t perform to expectations, it’s often because there has never been any preventive maintenance — only emergency service. Remember, equipment is only as good as the service performed on it.
It is now a legal requirement that the equipment owner ensures that leak checks are carried out least once per year on any plant that has more than 3kg of refrigerant in it and to keep records to show that this has been carried out by an engineer that holds a current refrigerant handling license.

Reliable and Efficient Air Conditioning
Taking out a planned preventative maintenance contract is the best way to look after your air conditioning. We are experts in affordable PPM solutions.
Guaranteed to extend your system’s lifetime, it prevents small problems developing into serious faults. Regular visits allow our experienced engineers to fix minor issues before you even notice they’re there.
If your system is regularly maintained, you’re unlikely to experience any downtime and should never have to pay out for repairs.
• Regular maintenance is vital for all air conditioning systems.
- It optimises performance, prevents breakdowns and boosts efficiency.
• Systems that go without maintenance typically lose 5% efficiency every year.
- In terms of running costs, that quickly adds up to an expensive repair bill
• Air conditioning systems that don’t get cleaned out allow mould and other organisms to grow.
- This can exacerbate health problems in your building, including allergies, asthma and general irritation.

Kent Refrigeration and Air Conditioning can provide a bespoke planned maintenance package suitable for any size of business, taking into account all relevant aspects of your company and your chosen market sector.
Planned preventive maintenance (PPM)—also known as scheduled maintenance—has two main benefits, the first being increased productivity. This is because regular maintenance can prevent unnecessary downtime
by identifying problems before they escalate. The other main benefit of planned preventative maintenance is it can greatly prolong the life of equipment at your installation.
Both benefits allow your company to operate to its full potential, and assist you in maximising your profits.
We operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This gives us the capability to carry out maintenance at a time suitable for you, for example when your shop is closed to customers or at the weekend when staff aren't working.
