Commercial air conditioning or refrigeration units very rarely fail when they are well maintained. The main question you need to ask yourself if you have an air conditioning unit installed in your premises is – what is the cost of you air conditioning unit failing?
Commercial air conditioning units need maintenance, just like every other piece of equipment or appliance used, it needs to be included in regular maintenance and be updated when required or adapted as needs change.
The cost of emergency repair in addition to the cost to your business of the air con or refrigeration units failing is always going to be more than a pre-planned maintenance plan.

Commercial businesses like restaurants, pubs and clubs rely on either pre-booked customers or passing trade and if the air con or refrigerators were to fail then this could cause the restaurant to close for a period of time and also any food stock may spoil until the problem was fixed. Hotels have a similar problem as their food and drink offerings would be substantially reduces and if there was an air con problem in the hotel they would have a lot of unhappy guests.
Some businesses must close immediately if their air con is not working (care homes for example) so having well maintained systems is essential to the day to day running of that business.
