What is F-Gas? Does it apply to me?
F-Gas is an EU regulation which was introduced to reduce the leakage of HFC type refrigerants.   Air Conditioning equipment that contains over 3kg of refrigerant require leak checks to be carried out in accordance with F-Gas Regulations.   Most air conditioning units installed in commercial and industrial applications will contain 3kg or more of refrigerant.   F-Gas leak tests are included as standard in our maintenance contracts.

Air Conditioning not working?
If your air conditioning is not working, we would recommend you check that all associated isolators and circuit breakers are switched on prior to booking a call out. If the controller is displaying a fault code, this should be recorded and reported to us upon booking a call out.
Air Conditioning is not cooling/heating?
If your air conditioning is not cooling, this could be due to several different factors. Basic checks to carry out before requesting a call out would be to ensure the operation settings on the controller are programmed correctly. Also that all windows and doors are closed.
Air Conditioning leaking water?
If your air conditioning unit is leaking water, this could be due to a failure of the condensate pump or blockage in the drains. The best action would be to isolate power to the air conditioning equipment to reduce this risks of damage/fire.   
Smell from Air Conditioning unit?
If smells are being produced by the air conditioning unit, this could be due to several different factors. These include a build up of smells on the evaporator coil, dirty air filters or condensate drain problems.

 

AccuTemp would recommend to have the unit serviced, we will then interrogate the cause of the smells and action accordingly.
