Air Conditioning & Refrigeration

Aiken Group’s diverse team of engineers have twenty years’ experience carrying out installation, maintenance and service repairs on all types of Air Conditioning and Refrigeration systems for our clients worldwide.

We also undertake sub-contract work for large facilities and maintenance companies nationwide.

Installations of any size or type are fully managed by the Aiken Group project team internally; covering Ventilation, Electrical, Plumbing and Fabrication works where required.

We establish bespoke maintenance programmes allowing our experienced engineers to carry out regular maintenance which ensures your systems are running efficiently; reducing energy costs and most importantly decreasing the risk of costly breakdowns.

We provide a reactive and efficient call out service to reduce downtime and costs for our clients. Our engineers are highly trained to ensure most, if not all, problems can be rectified on site at the time of the first visit.

All engineers use fully kitted service vans containing a high quantity of stock materials to reduce downtime when on site.

We carry out surveys and any required upgrades to ensure your air conditioning systems comply with the latest TM44 regulations and HSE requirements.

We are FPAL Verified, SEPA registered, Refcom F Gas approved and manufacturer approved installers with various brands. Our engineers are registered with ACRIB and all hold a City & Guilds Safe Handling of Refrigerant Certificate.

All job reports and documentation are provided to our clients upon job completion after being saved onto our client database for future reference.
