We have recently been involved in the replacement of a number of cellar cooling systems within sports and social clubs. This has been due to either the existing systems failing or because of the increased running costs of the old equipment.
Cellar cooling is a very important piece of equipment and without it revenue can be lost due to beer being lost or the customer not being happy with their pint!
Time after time we see that the systems have been neglected, with no maintenance regime in place. Without maintenance, energy consumption of a single split type system can increase by upto 60%. This icreased cost of running the equipment could be more thanfour times the price of an annual maintenance contract.
So the sooner a planned maintenance contract is implemented the sooner they will save money.
