Why do you need regular maintenance and how will it save you money?


  • It will extend the operating life of your equipment and delay the substantial cost of equipment replacement.
  • Will reduce your emergency service repair costs by fixing small problems you stop major component failure.
  • Properly maintained equipment has a lower failure rate and less down time helping the success of your business.
  • Will maximize the operating efficiency of your equipment and reduce your energy costs.


Protect your equipment warranty: maintain accurate records of maintenance and repair for better equipment management and warranty protection.

Experienced and trained technicians: technicians have the tools and instruments to test, calibrate and repair equipment efficiently, they also have immediate access to most replacement parts.

Extends equipment life: most equipment failure is due to neglect.

Maintains efficient operationplanned preventative maintenance maintains system energy efficiency.

Minimise risk of major component failure: routine maintenance can detect and correct minor problems before they turn into major problems.

Save money on repairs: planned preventative maintenance delivers priority service: routine maintenance lowers the risk of emergency calls.   However, if your equipment does fail, service agreement customers always receive priority service.


  • Improves staff morale and attitude which in turn will help retain staff and reduce staff turnover.
  • Crisis management is a very expensive, and inefficient way to maintain equipment.
  • As much as 80% of all compressor failures could be eliminated if the problems leading to the failure where corrected in a timely manner. One repair would far outweigh the cost of your business's refrigeration equipment being serviced and maintained for a whole year.
  • Refrigerant should never need to be replaced under normal operating conditions.   If refrigerant must be added regularly, it means an expensive leak exists that should be repaired.
  • A dirty evaporator or condenser can increase heat pump electrical usage by 50% or more.
  • Just 1/100 of an inch or dirt or film on an evaporator coil can reduce its efficiency by 5%.
  • Uncorrected small problems can lead to very expensive repairs.
  1. Save Money by Reducing Energy Running Cost
  2. Priority Service
  3. Less product loss and insurance claims due to down equipment
  4. Less equipment repair and replacement
  5. Validates warranty for new equipment
  6. More consistent operating temperatures, less food born bacteria 
  7. Less equipment failure
