Someone Changing The Filters In An Air-Handling Unit

Air Handling Unit Refurbishment.

Air Handling Units (AHU) and other ventilation systems are crucial in today’s post Covid-19 era. Ensuring sufficient fresh air is essential for people’s well-being, a task typically fulfilled by on-site AHUs.

AHUs are costly capital investments that require regular maintenance to maintain their efficiency and prevent deterioration, ultimately avoiding expensive replacements. Unfortunately, inadequate maintenance often leads to disrepair and the need for complete replacements.

However, this outcome can be avoided. Years ago, we pioneered the innovative approach of refurbishing AHUs in their existing location.

Asset Life Extension

A well executed Air-handling Unit Refurbishment can add 15-20 years working life to equipment.

COST Effective

The cost to refurbish in situ is around 40% ofthat of replacing with new Air-Handling Units.

Less Disruption

Air-Handling Unit Refurbishment can usually be carried out with little or no distruption to a clients premise.

Energy Saving

Modern technology heat recovery controls can be all incorporate or retrofitted into an existing AHU. 

Extended Asset Life

AHU’s are expensine stems of capital plant costs over £100k per unit. Refurbishment is an effecive method of extending unit life for another 10-20 years.

Reduced Maintenance Costs

Replacing old belt driven jaws with new EC jaws not only saves energy but reduces the maintenance and set up involved with the old belt drivers few with attendant cost savings.

Opportunity To Upgrade Or repurpose

We can refit new components with upgrades filtration, DX cooling, or replace expensive electric heating with gas or hot water.

Toca Football – 02 Arena

The Toca Project 02 Dome required refurbishment and repurposing to meet the specific needs of TOCA Social, the world’s first interactive football and dining experience. The existing Air-Handling Unit (AHU) did not meet the requirements, necessitating the repurposing of the AHU to accommodate the required air volume for the activity area and bar. he survey focused on AHU 1, 2, and 3, evaluating options for refurbishment and reinstating them to their original designs or reducing their duties while refurbishing.

AHU Refurbishment FAQs

What Is AHU Refurbishment?

HU refurbishment is a comprehensive process led by skilled technicians. It includes a thorough inspection and strategic upgrades or component replacements to optimise the AHU’s performance. This intricate task demands specialist expertise. Our engineers assess:

  1. **Fans, Coils, Filters, and Dampers**: Examining and enhancing the condition and efficiency of these vital components.
  2. **Heat Recovery/Heat Exchangers**: Evaluating and improving the functionality and effectiveness of heat recovery systems.
  3. **Unit Corrosion**: Addressing corrosion signs for longevity and reliability.
  4. **AHU Controls**: Optimising control systems for seamless operation and energy efficiency.
  5. **Access Doors, Panels, and Seals**: Verifying accessibility and component integrity, making adjustments or replacements as needed.

In summary, AHU refurbishment is a precise process aimed at restoring optimal functionality and efficiency, always entrusted to specialised professionals for the best results.

How can I tell if my AHU needs refurbishment?

Your AHU may require refurbishment or replacement if you notice:

  1. Reduced efficiency
  2. Failure to meet design requirements
  3. Excessive noise
  4. Temperature problems
  5. Corrosion due to water ingress
  6. Poor indoor air quality
Will an AHU refurbishment disrupt my building's operations?

AHU refurbishment is less disruptive than buying a replacement. Our flexible experts coordinate with you to minimise disruptions during our inspections and refurbishment.

How long does an AHU refurbishment take?

The duration depends on the scope of work, the size of the AHU, and any unexpected issues that may arise during the refurbishment. It can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks.

Is it cost-effective to refurbish an AHU compared to replacing it?

In many cases, refurbishing an AHU is more cost-effective than replacing it. However, this depends on the unit’s age, condition, and the cost of energy-saving upgrades.

What maintenance is required after an AHU refurbishment?

Regular AHU maintenance, such as filter changes and system inspections, is essential to keep the refurbished AHU operating efficiently and effectively.
