Chiller Leasing- the Challenge;
Advanced Climate Rentals were recently approached by a customer that was experiencing problems with the chiller at their central London offices. The client was occupying an older 30,000sq/ft building on a short four year lease- after which the site is due for re-development.
The chiller was surveyed by our engineers and found in a very dilapidated condition . It was an older machine charged with R22 refrigerant (now not serviceable), both compressors were showing low earth resistance and required replacing.
The client had previously spent considerable sums of money to keep the machine operational, but found itself in the position of having a machine that was ultimately uneconomical to repair. The short lease also meant that the client didn’t want to commit large amounts of capital to replace the machine.
The Solution- Chiller Leasing….
Advanced Climate Rentals proposed a water chiller on a fixed term agreement. The set monthly costs, including all equipment, servicing and any breakdown/ repair’s appealed to the client after the open ended costs for the redundant machine.
A reliable, efficient Daikin chiller was installed with reinforced rubber hosing to connect to the buildings existing flow and return chilled water pipe-work. It was decided to install the chiller at ground level to reduce installation costs- a crane lift would have required a road closure.
Full integration was made to the buildings BMS system for auto control.
The system was installed and commissioned in 1 day and has been in reliable operation for 12 months.
