With a track record extending back for well over 40 years, Kimpton have developed a reputation for the quality air conditioning installation and maintenance of Air Conditioning systems.
Air Conditioning installation is increasingly becoming a key component of any commercial or industrial buildings infrastructure; here at Kimpton, we provide a full in-house service from initial concept through to full design, installation and after sales care of commercial air conditioning systems.
Whether your project is an existing building or a new build scheme, within the Kimpton Group, we have the flexibility to meet the diverse requirements. With no system being too small, we can cater for all size and manner of installation from simple one to one split systems cooling individual rooms, to large multi Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems catering for cellular and open plan office systems.
We have carried out various designs and installations utilising market leading technology with a strong emphasis on Sustainability and Renewable energy systems, systems include not only air source but ground source closed and open loop systems utilising borehole or ‘slinky’ applications.
With the ever-increasing demand for more energy efficient systems whether cooling or heating, we specify and install industry leading equipment. We have long-standing relations with our suppliers and strive to work hand in hand specifying new technologies with an overall objective to reduce carbon emissions.
We also have a wealth of experience in the cooling of Data Centre’s and Server Rooms. With the growing reliance upon IT then the climate control of server/data rooms has become paramount. From the retrofit of single cooling only systems for a room adapted as an IT/server room to the fully functioning systems capable of cooling, heating, humidifying and dehumidifying a full data centre, our HVAC contractors can specify and install a system specific to your needs.
We pride ourselves on ensuring that our employees involved with the design, installation and maintenance of air conditioning systems are kept up to date with all current legislation. We will always ensure that you receive the best advice on installing the latest energy efficient technologies or on how to maintain and improve the operation of your existing systems.
Having your air conditioning systems inspected by an Energy Assessor is designed to improve efficiency and consequently reduce electrical consumption, operating costs and carbon emissions for your system. Energy inspections will highlight improvements in the operation of your existing systems or opportunities to replace older, less efficient or oversized systems with more energy efficient systems.
By law, all air conditioning systems within a building with a single or combined effective rated output of more than 12kw must be regularly inspected by an Energy Assessor.
The regulations require the first inspection of the affected air conditioning systems to be carried out as follows:
If you control the operation of the air conditioning systems affected by these Regulations, it is your responsibility to:
Local authorities (usually via their Trading Standards Officer) are responsible for enforcing the requirements relating to air conditioning inspection reports. Failure to commission, keep or provide an air conditioning inspection report when required by the Regulations means you may be issued with a penalty charge notice.
We will manage your air conditioning installation, but even before this can oversee your energy assessment requirements for you and inform you when an assessment is required. Our accredited Energy Assessors can provide you with the required Energy Efficiency Report. Along with issuing these reports, our service includes the facility to store the reports on our Web Portal to be viewed from anywhere and at any time.
Kimpton are a Business Solutions Partner with Misubishi Electric. What this means for you, is that we have huge in-house expertise in the Mitsubishi range of air conditioning and heating products. Our team are fully trained in the design, installation and ongoing maintenance for their systems.
We also have full in-house expertise with other manufacturers and also work with the likes of Daikin and Toshiba for specific applications too.
After a change in the law in January 2015, air conditioning systems that utilise the R22 refrigerant cannot be recharged with the R22 gas. There are many replacement systems that we can specify that will provide more efficient and cost-effective running. As R22 was also known to be an Ozone depleting CFC gas, it will also be far better for the environment too. We have written an approach for the replacement of an old R22 based air conditioning system, which you may like to refer to if this is an issue you are facing.
