Maintaining your air conditioning is essential for any business to create a comfortable place for your employees and customers.
We install high quality and reliable air conditioning from the best global brands plus we use planned preventative maintenance (PPM) to ensure your system is in top condition all year round. Most people think of the summer as the time when air conditioning is used most, however it’s also an effective heating system in the winter. The change from summer to winter can often require units to be serviced to ensure they remain reliable and efficient throughout the year.
Our fully planned servicing work ensures your air conditioning is running effectively and efficiently. F-Gas compliance is a legal requirement when it comes to commercial buildings, so it is important that your air conditioning is maintained correctly.
At TDC we provide a full range of air conditioning PPM packages to meet your needs whatever the size of your business. This includes scheduled inspections year-round to ensure your system is performing efficiently. In the case of old air conditioning systems, we can undertake R22 replacement and the maintenance needed. We will agree a schedule with you for visiting your workplace and making inspections. This can be weekly, monthly or annual. We also offer 24/7/365 support call out service if you have a sudden problem.
Failure to have your equipment serviced and maintained in accordance with manufacturer and legal guidelines will result in the following:
- Increased running costs
- Reduced efficiency
- Reduced air quality
- System failures
Blocked air filters are one example of where efficiency can be severely reduced leading to higher costs and the danger of unclean air being circulated around rooms.
At TDC our skilled and experienced engineers carry out a thorough maintenance of your air conditioning equipment maximising the efficiency of your equipment whilst keeping your business compliant.
The FGAS regulations require systems containing F GAS refrigerants to be leak checked periodically depending on the quantity of the refrigerant charge in the system. To comply with FGAS regulations the following are the requirements for each refrigerant circuit:
-3KG or more requires leak checking at least once a year
-30KG or more requires leak checking at least once every 6 months
-300KG or more requires leak checking at least once every 3 months
FGAS legislation require other procedures to be in place as well as the leak checking of systems. We offer free FGAS consultations to all new customers. For more information please contact our Service office on 01244 980 535.
0 kg or more – requires leak checking once every 6 months (also if there is a leak detection system already fitted the system only requires to be inspected once a year).
At TDC we take our environmental considerations very seriously. We are continuously striving to offer environmentally friendly and energy efficient solutions. The environmental impact of our products and processes have become a key element in how we run our business, from the design phase, selection and disposal of materials to our bespoke maintenance programmes offering optimum efficiency.
- 300 kg or more – requires leaking checking once every 3 months (also a leak detection system must be fitted and inspected once per year).
Our planned preventative maintenance schemes help to deliver an optimum working environment whilst also reducing repair costs and making sure your company is complying with the latest regulations.
All machines need to be maintained in order to ensure they run efficiently and work well for many years. Our customers enjoy maintenance packages that check over thirty elements of their equipment which ensures peace of mind.
We also focus on predictive maintenance where we will try to foresee any components that may fail in the near future and alert you to these.

Is your business F GAS compliant? TDC offer a free site survey checking business compliance making valuable recommendations when necessary.
Fluorinated gases otherwise known as F-gases, are man-made gases that come in four types: hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3).
F Gas Rules and Regulations
Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs and HCFCs) are a type of Fluorinated gases (F Gas) present in air conditioning and refrigeration equipment.
If they escape into the atmosphere they have a negative impact on the environment. DEFRA maintains a constant review of F Gas use and its effect on climate change. Businesses are required to keep accurate records of testing of F Gas leaks in their equipment.
Leak testing of air conditioning and refrigeration equipment is a legal requirement and has to be carried out by an engineer who is DEFRA approved with a EQCC certificate issued by Refcom.
Compliance is enforced by the Environmental Agency and local councils and where businesses are not able to show the records of F Gas testing fines can be considerable.
Frequency of Checks
- R410A (2088 GWP) more than 2.39kg once a year, 23.9kg twice, more than 239kg four times
- R407C (1774 GWP) more than 2.81kg once a year, 28.1kg twice, more than 281kg four times
- R404A (3922 GWP) more than 1.27kg once a year, 12.7kg twice, more than 127kg four times
- R134a (1430 GWP) more than 3.49kg once a year, 34.9kg twice, more than 349kg four times

We pride ourselves on the installation and maintenance of ventilation systems. Our well designed systems will ensure that you have the best air quality possible by removing dust, fumes and odours linked to manufacturing processes.
It is extremely dangerous and can be fatal to have inadequate ventilation. It is also required by the The Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations that proper ventilation is installed and to also ensure it's working effectively and efficiently at all times. To find out more click here.
Benefits of Ventilation Systems
By installing adequate ventilation systems, this can:
- Improve indoor air quality
- Eliminate the risk of condensation, mould and damp
- Reduce risks of health problems cause by indoor air pollutants
- Provide clearer air (particularly for allergy and asthma sufferers)
- Improve Carbon Footprint
- Ensure quiet operation
- Lower running costs
Bespoke Solutions and Testing
Not all ventilation systems are the same: natural ventilation will normally be enough to control small offices or shops however, sometimes powered general ventilation is required for bigger manufacturing processes. Therefore, TDC offers tailored solutions for your business with an on-site survey, design and installation service.
We can assure you that our work is to the highest standard. We only use established suppliers and manufacturers, as well as offer testing for ventilation units, air ducting, and factory ventilation systems. Fully accredited engineers will provide certification with rapid response and immediate results.
