Whilst the team at Macair are jolly good at maintaining HVAC systems, some things are out of our control. The day before a match the ventilation system failed for one of our clients. Our 24/7 service meant that we had engineers on hand to work overnight to fix the problem. By the time the players and spectators arrived, all was well. Indeed, they probably didn’t even notice the ventilation, but isn’t that the way that it should be?
If you manage a stadium or large educational facility, here are our top tips for HVAC maintenance to help prevent emergency call out AND to save you money:
- Left to their own devices, air conditioning systems can consume huge amounts of energy. Clean your systems regularly so that they work efficiently.
- Review how you’re using your air conditioning and write an operational strategy for how it will be used in the future – this means that everyone is on the same page and is using the facilities effectively.
- Undertake a TM44 inspections on your air conditioning systems to ensure energy consumption is as efficient as possible. The UK Government has proposed plans to reduce carbon emissions by up to 80% in 2050 and this will help meet that objective and save you money.
- Check you’re compliant! You need various certifications such as F-Gas for refrigerators, ACOPS L8 for water management, SFG20 for the maintenance of HVAC services, TM44s, EPCs and a host of British Standards.
- When building a new stadium, think ahead to all of its possible future uses, which different sports may use the space and don’t forget hospitality and meeting rooms. Plan your heating and ventilation needs. Consider from where the HVAC will be controlled and who will control it? This could be one or multiple individuals. Do you need a manual or remote electronic system to administer HVAC?
