air conditioning services

Ice refrigeration services provide high quality and affordable air conditioning services for commercial and industrial companies. We are committed to providing the highest quality air conditioning services within the industry. Every job undertaken is performed and supervised by our own engineers who we ensure have been trained to the highest standards by the leading air conditioning manufacturers. We do not use sub contractors. We do sub contract our services to other companies who use us time and time again due to the trust they have gained in our air conditioning service.

We can supply Daikin, Mitsubishi, Fujitsu, Samsung, LG and Hitachi; all configurations can be supplied and installed, whether it’s split type, VRV, VRS or ducted. We will help you to decide which solution would be best suited to your particular situation.

The best units come with, rotary compressors with DC inverter technology for high performance and low noise and vibration. These units operate using R410A environmentally friendly refrigerant.


Tailored air conditioning services to suit your needs!


Having an air conditioning system installed is a considerable investment. We always recommend that you protect this investment with a well structured air conditioning maintenance plan. To ensure that your system will last for it’s maximum life span.


Benefits of air conditioning maintenance:

  • Air conditioning units that are maintained have a longer lifespan
  • Air conditioning units that are maintained run more efficiently with higher performance

There are many different types of air conditioning system. Ice refrigeration services are able to provide a maintenance plan which is specifically tailored to the needs of your system. This will ensure your air conditioning is maintained to allow it to keep working to it’s optimum performance levels.

Through experience we have noted that the majority of expensive repairs to air conditioning systems that we have undertaken has been because the system has not been well maintained.


Look out for the following symptoms – these are classic indicators of a poorly maintained air conditioning system:

  • Poor airflow
  • Stale odours
  • Loss of performance
  • Dirty appearance
  • Sludge in drain line
  • Increased energy bills
  • Prone to freezing
  • Leaking water
  • Nuisance HP & LP alarms

Air conditioning certifications 

Ice refrigeration services are Refcom F-gas certificated. F-gas are new and safe gases used within air conditioning units. This certification allows our customers to feel comfortable our knowledge and expertise of this relatively new technology. Which will ultimately ensure safety at all times. 

Ice refrigeration services are safe contractor approved. Safe contractor are the leading health and safety assessment scheme. Due to their selective process you can rest assured that works will be carried out under their regulations and guidelines.


An explanation of air conditioning systems

There are two main types of air conditioning systems. Simple or packaged cooling systems and centralised (complex) cooling systems. They both provide their individual benefits.


Simple or packaged cooling systems 

These air conditioning units contain an integral circulation fan and refrigerant to air heat exchangers. They are generally indoor air conditioning units

The varieties of packaged cooling systems include:

  • Splitpackaged units – These comprise of a single outdoor unit which connects through refrigerant pipe work to the indoor unit, which is generally mounted on the floor or ceiling.
  • Unitary packaged units – An individual self contained unit, with the indoor and outdoor elements contained within an individual housing, most often installed through a wall or window
  • Multi-split packaged units – These comprise of a single common outdoor unit which uses a network of refrigerant pipe work to connect to multiple ceiling, floor or wall mounted indoor units.
  • Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems: These systems are very similar to Multi-split units, in that they have one outdoor unit connected to multiple indoor units. However,  multi-split  systems turn OFF or ON completely in response to one master controller, whereas VRF systems continually adjust the flow of refrigerant to each indoor evaporator. VRF systems promise a more energy-efficient strategy (estimates range from  11% to17% less energy compared to conventional units)

These systems are generally reversible. They will allow the operation of a heat pump and provide heating. Each indoor unit will generally contain it’s own controls allowing room temperatures to be adjusted separately and often by use of a timer.


Centralised / complex cooling systems

Air conditioning that uses complex cooling systems of course tend to be more complicated systems. They will use water or air distribution systems and with the use of a variety of terminal devices they will deliver water or air distribution to a range of conditioned spaces. These systems will often divide conditioned spaces into sepetrate zones with a more complex control system. The entire air conditioning system is often run from a centralised building management system

The varieties of centralised systems include:

  • Air systems – Starting at either an air handling unit or a heat exchanger to generate cooled air. This air then goes through ductwork and is distributed to conditioned spaces through grilles or additional terminal units. The air can also be cooled via these additional terminal units.
  • Cooled water systems – A central unit will produce cooled water and distribute it to all terminal units located in the conditioned spaces. These terminal units will either be recirculating room air, drawing air from outdoors, or drawing air from a ducted system. No matter how the unit is collecting this air the cooled water system will use the cooled water to cool this air.
  • Reversible heat pump systems/Water loop – These systems will have a common temperature controlled water loop. In each treated space there will be an individual unit, which also contains a reversible heat pump. Heat is passed between the individual units and the water loop to provide the optimum conditioning for each conditioned space. If the water loop has an excess of heat it will dissipate this through a central cooling tower. If heat needs to be generated for the loop this is often provided by a central heat generator.
