Air Conditioning Breakdown & Repair

UPS room in the Shard needs cooling

An international broadcaster headquartered in the Middle East needed the intervention of Andrews Sykes before moving into new offices in London. The Shard – Europe’s tallest freestanding building – was their location of choice, but an overheating issue threatened to obstruct the moving in process.

The main UPS switch room – which provides the company with a back-up power supply – was getting too hot, and this problem had to be addressed before occupancy could begin. We provided the client with a PAC 60 portable air conditioner complete with heat exchanger and accessories, to reduce the internal temperature.  By removing warm air from the vicinity, we prevented critical materials and equipment from being exposed to dangerous amounts of heat.

Hospital in need of urgent cooling

Heat is a well described occupational hazard. People who are physically active in high temperatures are at increased risk of heat injury. When the temperature soared in a Gloucestershire Hospital the building became distressingly hot. An urgent site survey was carried out following the hospitals management team’s request.


Andrews Air Conditioning Hire delivered 60 portable air conditioners which were placed throughout the building, including 2.6kW Polar Breeze and 4.1kW Polar Wind units. These products are fully portable and deliver cool flows of air anywhere in the room.  Amongst the units we also supplied several larger and more powerful models, the 6.5kW PAC 22 placed in spaces with more cooling demand.
