Ensuring Optimal Performance with LH plc

Overview of HVAC Maintenance

A well-functioning HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system is crucial for maintaining a comfortable and efficient environment in both commercial and residential spaces. 

Proper maintenance is vital for HVAC systems to operate optimally and regular preventative maintenance provides multiple benefits. LH plc is a specialist engineering services company committed to delivering comprehensive HVAC maintenance to optimise performance.

Benefits of Preventative HVAC Maintenance

Enhanced longevity

Regular HVAC maintenance extends the life of valuable systems. By implementing routine maintenance, minor issues can be addressed before they escalate, preventing costly breakdowns and the disruption this can cause. 

HVAC plays a crucial role in keeping occupants comfortable and/or protecting valuable assets such as data centres, so the consequences of a faulty system can be significant (and expensive).

Optimal efficiency

An efficiently running HVAC system saves energy leading to reduced utility costs. It is important to ensure that your system is calibrated and cleaned regularly, with essential filters replaced. LH plc have particular expertise in compressor installation, servicing and maintenance. 

Maximising energy efficiency will also lead to reduced carbon footprints.

LH plc can check existing systems to ensure they have been constructed in the most efficient way. Recent examples include Procter & Gamble, where chillers had been poorly designed and fitted, leading to reduced cooling capacities and unnecessarily high energy output. Our expert team reviewed and tested the system, implementing changes that have improved chiller performance and reduced running costs.

Improved indoor air quality

Clean and well-maintained HVAC systems play a vital role in promoting healthy indoor air quality. Ensuring air filtration is working as it should, for example, will help remove pollutants, allergens, and contaminants. 

Upgrading from fossil fuelled heating systems to newer systems, such as heat pumps, will further enhance indoor air quality.

Safety and compliance

For commercial spaces, HVAC maintenance is not just about comfort but also about meeting safety and compliance standards. Regular maintenance ensures your system operates safely and adheres to industry regulations.

Recommended Maintenance Practices

Follow Manufacturer’s Schedule: Adhere to the recommended maintenance schedule and procedures from the HVAC manufacturer. This ensures systems get serviced at the proper intervals.

Annual Check-Ups: Schedule comprehensive annual check-ups in addition to regular maintenance. Check-ups give technicians time for thorough inspections and identifying potential issues.

Repairs Issues Promptly: Address any mechanical issues promptly to prevent small problems from becoming bigger, more expensive repairs down the line.
