Leading multi-specialist engineering contractor ECEX is launching an air handling unit (AHU) refurbishment and repair service designed to extend the lifespan of existing AHUs, increase their operating efficiency, save energy, boost performance and typically reduce running costs.
The company’s managing director John Grenville said: “Complete replacement of an AHU is not always the best option. There are many compelling reasons to choose refurbishment and repair.
“For example, in many cases it is less expensive than replacing an AHU and offers the opportunity to upgrade the existing specification by taking advantage of the latest energy efficient EC plug fans and components.
“It also minimises disruption by increasing installation flexibility, reduces downtime, overcomes the transport and access difficulties associated with replacing a unit, and is more environmentally friendly because it re-uses existing equipment.
“Furthermore, repair or refurbishment can extend the service life of an AHU, it leaves existing services such as ductwork, pipework and wiring unaltered, and it can dramatically reduce energy consumption.”
The ECEX service covers the repair and replacement of all types of coils, belt drives, motors, fans, bearings and spares.
The new AHU refurbishment and repair service joins ECEX’s existing services, which include access safety and metalwork fabrication; mechanical engineering (from replacing pipework and valves to upgrading or downsizing water storage tanks); and energy saving and building compliance solutions such as the revolutionary ECEX Air Intake Screen.
